Cantarus Logo

We have thoroughly enjoyed our experience on DesignContest, it has been great to see the work of many talented designers and proved the best way to see variation when we only had a vague idea of the type of design we wanted. We have ended up with a design we are really excited about and hope to work with DesignContest in the future.

  • Thank you for your entry. We really like this idea, could you play around with the colours a little more? maybe make the logo a bit thicker? We would love to see some more variations around this
  • Hello Thank you for your entry. Please could you read the key points I have just added to the brief so that the logo can more closely match our requirements? Thank you Cantarus
  • Hello Thank you for your entry. Please could you read the key points I have just added to the brief so that the logo can more closely match our requirements? Thank you Cantarus
  • Thanks for the revised entry. We think there may be a bit to much 'going on' now; could you try and simplify the logo please whilst retaining the core elements?
    • sir let see what i can to to make my design perfect for you. i have still 5 more days to go to think some unique design.

    • Thank you - i just commented on your original design - we really like your first font - please create some designs using this font :)

  • dear ch please let me know the feedback #94 bridge concept thanks kind regards
    • Dear ch please let me know the feedback thanks kind regards

  • Thanks for your submission. This general idea has promise; could the 'swoosh' be made to look more like a bridge, perhaps wtih something suggesting a destination at the end such as a cloud or sun?
    • Thanks for the feedback; I have added a cloud destination to the end of the bridge as suggested. See #105. Hope you'll like it! :) -Pawel

  • Thanks for your submissions; we like the revised concept and the colours in both #73 and #74. Could you try something at the end of the bridge, maybe a simply cloud or sun please?
    • good day CH.. thank you very much for the positive feedback.. i submitted my revised design.. thank you...

  • Thanks; we like the logo itself but not the font used for 'Cantarus'. Could we have something a bit less 'Battlestar Galactica' and a bit more Microsoft or Facebook (i.e. clean and simple) please? It might be worth trying lower case as well as upper case.
    • Please check my new entries #87 #88 #91. I'm waiting for your feedback!

  • Dear CH,please check my new upload #92, any feedback ?
  • Thank you for your submissions. Could you please look at a more spaced out thinner font?
    • Thanks for your feedback. #84 is the reviewed design.

  • Thanks for your submission. We like the concept but please amend the spelling to, "Cantarus" and can you make it clearer that there are people on either side of the bridge?
    • Hello CH, Sorry fot my misspell and thank you for your feedback. New design is going to be uploaded soon. nixRa

  • Thanks for your submission. This makes us think of something tribal which isn't really what we want unfortunately.
  • Thanks; this is better. Could we have the cloud raised a little so the bridge doesn't break it's boundary please? Also, we think the last 'slat' in the bridge could go to simplify it further.
  • Thanks for your submissions. These concepts do have some promise we think, but there;s no suggestion of IT here and we think it may look to much like we're a construction company. Can you submit some variations please?
    • Thanks for the feedback, I'll strip them back and re-submit..!

  • clarification of design#64 dear ch that icon represent Letter A. i design the Letter little bit of stylish and elegant feeling that is why it is looking like that. thanks kind regards
  • Thanks for your submission. The 'Cantarus' text is nice but the logo octagon isn't what we're looking for.
    • Hello, Thank you for the feedback, I revised keeping the same lettering and changing the logo, i´m trying to keep away from the bridge designs so i came up with a simple yet modern looking image. Best regards Elijah

  • Thanks for your submission. This is an interesting concept though not quite right in its current form. Could you try some alternative 'symbols' at the meeting point of the bridges such as clouds or suns? Something a little more abstract might work as well.
  • As per feedback on #50.
