Project description

UPDATE: THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SUBMISSIONS AND THE HARD WORK THAT YOU HAVE PUT INTO THESE DESIGNS. THERE ARE MANY THAT WE REALLY, REALLY LIKE. UNFORTUNATELY, EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES HAVE PREVENTED US FROM PROVIDING TIMELY AND USEFUL FEEDBACK DURING THE CONTEST AND HAVE ALSO DELAYED IN DETERMINING A WINNER. WE SINCERELY APOLOGIZE FOR THIS. WE HAVE DECIDED TO EXTEND THE CONTEST AND WILL BE SURE TO PROVIDE CONTINUED FEEDBACK AND MONITOR COMMENTS AND ANSWER QUESTIONS AS THEY COME IN.

INITIAL FEEDBACK: WE HAVE DECIDED TO GO AWAY FROM THE WORD "THE" IN OUR LOGO. WE WOULD LIKE TO MAKE IT SIMPLER AND ALSO KEEP THE FONT IN ALL CAPS. IN ADDITION, WE FEEL AN EMPHASIS ON THE WORD "DAY" IS NECESSARY WHERE APPROPRIATE. WE ANTICIPATE THIS LOGO WILL BE ON OUR WEBSITE, BUT ALSO POTENTIALLY ON OUR PRODUCTS AND THEREFORE WILL BE VERY SMALL AND MAY NOT HAVE SPACE FOR TOO MUCH INTRICATE DETAIL. I HAVE MADE NOTE OF THE LOGOS THAT WE PARTICULARLY LIKE. ALSO NOTE THAT ANYTHING USING A CLOCK SHOULD ONLY HAVE ONE (1) HAND SINCE THE WATCH WOULD ONLY POINT TO THE DAY OF THE WEEK (NOT YOUR TRADITIONAL 2 HANDS FOR MINUTE AND HOUR). ALSO, WHERE LOGOS USE MULTIPLE POINTS OR OBJECTS, TRY TO MAKE SURE THERE ARE SEVEN (7) OF THEM TO SIGNIFY EACH OF THE DAYS OF THE WEEKS (E.G., RAYS OF SUN, COLORS AROUND CIRCLE, ETC.)

PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS. THANKS AND WE APPRECIATE ALL OF YOUR HARDWORK.

The Day Watch is a trendy, modern watch that ONLY SAYS THE DAY OF THE WEEK. That is, rather than the time, it just says "Monday." This is a progressive, forward-thinking company that allies itself with the artistic community and people who think outside of the box. We are seeking a logo to use as the face of our company that exudes this anti-establishment and living-in-the-moment attitude. The only text in the logo is, "The Day Watch." Thanks and we look forward to your creative ideas!

  • Hello CH, The concept of design #22 is a watch with a sun rays combined and looks like a sun. SUN = DAYS. Thanks
  • Backgrounds not allowed unless requested by CH. http://www.designcontest.com/logo-design/edgy-startup-needs-fresh-logo/entry/14/report
  • and #17 Inspired by A Clockwork Orange. I believe it's one of the best anti-establishment/dystopian novels.
  • Contest Holder, I went with an abstract design that is catered to the artistic community with a multiple-color scheme; a trendy and otherwise eye-catching display.
  • Hi CH, The logo is a modern and funky take on watch brands. Designed to appeal to the younger and artsy crowd it has a simple and clean approach. Part of the consideration in designing the logo is the application of the watch on a small unit if it's used physically on a watch face. Basic colours make up the emblem so that it's can be used with different methods of printing. The emblem itself is the combination of the word D and W. I hope you like it. Thanks. Azry

  • The central logo element is the Thinker by Auguste Rodin, with the wrist watch. The image is intended to symbolize the values, preached by the company and its customers - calmness, prudence and elitism, and also respect for quality and traditions. Hope you like my idea. Thanks.
  • No problem about the letters, i can un-flipp them. Second S is for Sunday. In calenders and watches that show days Sunday is always in red. Second T is for Thursday. I wanted to be different from the first T, not to be confused... Any suggestions?
  • This definitely does look better, it's just a little confusing with the letters flipping. Also why are T and S in red?
