I was blown away at the number of submissions and the quality of the work. My big concern in working with a single designer on a project is not having enough variety early in the process. DesignContest gave us a great broad set of ideas to choose from and really helped to hone in on what we were looking for. it's fast, easy, and inexpensive.

Project description


GARDINER is a B2B Commercial Heating & Air Conditioning company with a diverse group of businesses within the overall company. 

We're looking for a refresh/addition for our brand. Ideally, we'd actually like to keep the current simple all caps italicized GARDINER logo, but add a pictoral mark/icon element that we could use with the logo...or alone as part of collateral or other designs (something more conceptual).

A concept we're working with is using "Buildings Solved." as a tagline, so maybe the mark could work with this. The concept is that we solve building challenges holistically (, where many competitors only solve for one part of the equation. 

This could work with a rubik's cube puzzle type icon perhaps or some kind of building outline (but we aren't set on that). An example of what we're thinking is something like our partner, KMC Controls does with their "Building Geniuses" sub-brand, where they have a separate mark for that (example here:

The GARDINER logo itself is red, although we more frequently use a white logo on a dark background with the red stripe (see for our most updated look). We'd be willing to see different variations of this.

  • Hi, here is the logo I created. I took inspiration from your text to do it. Indeed, you had talked about a rubik's cube puzzle type icon, so I tried to make the letter G, but in the shape of a cube. I tried to have diagonals in the icon to keep a family look with your website and to make it dynamic. I changed the typography for something more right and geometric to go with the icon. We can always put the logo in italics and it also works very well and it is not long to change. In conclusion, the logo is strong, minimalist and dynamic and would be perfect for your company. #460
