Project description

We are in need of a new and fresh logo for a car yard named "The Car Yard." The logo will be used for a new retail business based in Auckland, New Zealand. Because our name "The Car Yard" states our business clearly, we'd like prefer a wordmark or a combination of symbol and words as our logo. The logo will be used in various advertisements and online listings of cars among hundreds of other logos. It needs be loud and catchy. thanks for the participation!

Read full brief


  • Hello, entries #4 and #5 are my draft designs shown in sample color combinations; the graphics feature an immediate and obvious brand concept framed in a layout that's both classic and dynamic, with a solid and distinctive font. The car silhouette I chose is that of the Holden Commodore, as one of the most popular models in New Zealand. The bottom wedge of the layout frame can be used to inscribe a tagline or the business location (Auckland, NZ). I'm ready for your feedback and requests for any changes or adjustments.
    • Hi Fabio, Thanks for the participation and also your comment. We think #4 looks good. Almost all vehicles we deal in are Japanese imports so no Commodore. Nonetheless, we like the idea of cars lined up. We aim to be one of the largest dealers in the country having around 300 cars in stock so if you could visualize it in the logo that would be great. thanks again and look forward in seeing more design from you. regards,

    • Hi Nisshindo, I've revised the design by replacing the car silhouettes with a triplet inspired by the Subaru BRZ, also displaying alternative color combinations: #10. Version #11 features another triplet of sleek and popular imports, but of different makes instead; a Subaru BRZ, a Mazda 6 and a Lexus IS. Let me know if these new proposals meet your taste.

  • Hello Nisshindo, Please check my 3 entries : #28 & #27 & #23 and if you have any advice just tell me :) Thanks and Best Regards
    • Hi Anczeska, We liked the logo! It's nice and simple. Can you please try to do them in different colours and also fonts? If you could do one with black and orange, and also try different fonts. We prefer something simple. FYI just found a good looking black/orange logo with a simple font we like thanks,
