Project description

Here's a departure from the standard logo design contest! I'm looking for a creatively clever yet simple way to display the name of my boat on the stern area as well as collateral (shirts, mugs, etc.). The boat is named "Doctor's Orders" ("Dr's Orders" is also acceptable if it better fits your design idea). The logo will be black in color and cut from vinyl. The ultimate goal is the ability to read the letters from a distance but have a bit of clever detail when close. Nautical theme typography and/or subtle Doctor/medical theme is encouraged. Type/font size should be the same for all letters. The logo area is 51"W x 25"H and will be in place of "Lucky" in this pic (all existing vinyl has been removed): https://www.dropbox.com/sc/6zlbwmb0v55vtu9/SyTXnUloIG

  • Just submitted a logo idea for you! I just placed it on top of a cool boat picture for fun:) But obviously that's not part of the logo. But just in case anyone gets confused haha
    • Like what you did there; very clever! I think it will be too tall for the 51"W x 25"H area though. Goal will be to be able to read the letters from a distance but have a bit of detail when close. Thanks!!!

    • Ok thanks for your feedback! I re-worked it a little bit and submitted the new version, so that it was more horizontal and that the words stand out more beside the graphic.

  • Hi CH...I have just submitted #3 #4 and #5. Your feedback would give me an idea of the direction you want. Thanks!
    • Thanks so much for your submissions here! You have helped me refine my brief so you might take a quick look. Like the nautical type!

    • Thank you for rating my entry. I am glad you uploaded the image. It helps a lot with visualization. Quick question: would the text under Lucky (or would b logo) be there or will that be removed? I ask because would you prefer a font to gel in with the existing text or would you prefer something totally individual?

    • The vinyl you see in the picture has been removed so we are working with a clean slate. I'll update the brief to reflect this - thanks for mentioning!

  • Good font and the anchor ties in well. Not a fan of the additional mark on the right.
    • Thank you for the ratings, I will fix it. I've submit a new design again #22 Regards

  • This is a very fun design. Will probably like to see this with a similar font size on both words.
    • Thank you for your feedback. Based on it I have created two more designs and I see you have already rated them. Feel free to let me know of any changes that you might like.

    • I think we are on to something here. I'm mobile and will try to check in regularly and suggest.

  • Love the creativity here but do not envision that on the back of the boat. Thoughts on a variation where the words are stacked and you're still able to use the steth?
  • Like the "Orders" font on this one. Still deciding if I like the anchor.
  • Like the font and Like the second "O" in "Doctor's". Any other variations to this come to mind? javascript:void(0)
  • Really like the font, like the compass integration. Can nix hook & anchor. Any way to integrate the compass differently?
  • Hello! I just submitted #14 the anchor in the design is very subtly a stethoscope which in itself is a perfect logo for the Doctor's Orders. I was thinking that on the mugs and other memorabilia you could even just use the anchor image without the text if you wanted. I hope you like let me know if there is anything else I can do!
  • Hi CH, Please find my entry #35. I have moved away from all the current entries and produced a bolder more fun logo that would be easy recognisable from distance. Feedback greatly appreciated. Regards SJK
  • I'm a fan of this because it more closely represents a logo. I'm concerned with readability from a distance. Any additional ideas come to mind?
    • Sure! Mr.Hamwx, I will do it and send it to you, thank you so much for your reply, thanks

    • Dear CH, Kindly have a look at the options, which I sent to you, what ever the idea came to my mind everything I shared it to you in one shot, please feel free, I hope you like let me know if there is anything else I can do it further, Thanks a lot you given me the opportunity working with your project, thanks

      |--| Dear CH, #58 I sent to you 8 options in one design, have you seen, actually I don't know many options in one frame I should use it, I am very sorry, but I was having good ideas but I had only one frame to show already I used 2 options that is the reason I showed all the options in one page, is it possible can you arrange atlease another 3 pages so that I will send it to you those option, thanks

  • Can I see this one without the art? Like the font.
    • Dear CH, I'm sorry, I have not been able to submit the design again because i have reached my upload limit (rules). You must give me feedback in my design. Thanks

  • If you don't mind, I'd like to see this one without the art within the O's. Thanks!!!
    • Hello CH, I've submit a new design again #68 Regards

  • Hi, I submitted an entry for you #62 . Please provide me any feedback you might have to improve my design to your desire and satisfactory! Best Regards
  • Hi Mr. Hamwx, I submitted #60 and #61 What do You think ?
  • Any way to stack this so "Orders" is under "Doctor's" and still integrate the steth?
    • I just submitted the re-designed logo. It is #51. Thanks for the input :)

  • If possible, I'd like to see this graphic with a T in place of the anchor, with no other changes. Thanks!
    • Hi CH, I have just uploaded two options for the 'T' instead of the anchor. Please review #49 and #52. Feel free to let me know if you need any other change/s. Thanks!

  • Please see #54 and provide feedback! I've combined the image of an anchor with a symbol that represents doctors. The font is unique and read easily from afar.
