Winning design #113 by menggo, Logo Design for Godenriq Contest
Gold Medal

designed by menggo

Project description

Pronounced God-en-rick, we are a startup management consulting group targeting business executives, CEOs, Presidents and Owners. The meaning of Godenriq is quite literally "God enriches". Also, from the Anglo-Saxon Godric meaning "Power of God".

Godenriq is the company and Bishop is the object of the training. What we "do" is train bishops but who "we are" is Godenriq. We take managers and leaders to the next level and make them into Bishops.

Godenriq has four sub-themes, one central theme and a vision. The four sub-themes are as follows:

1. Rewriting Your Scripts to improve yourself
2. Being the Best Boss in treatment of others
3. Navigating Interactions with peers
4. Managing Your Resources to take and lead your market

Central to all these themes is the following: Stay On Purpose

The vision of Godenriq is Good Faith and Fair Dealing and As I Prosper You Prosper.

The look and feel of Godenriq is best summed up in this paragraph:

Our reputation for excellence in all things will be the Godenriq niche and the Godenriq standard. Both classy, luxurious and exceptional. We are not repackaged seminar materials. We share innovative business and personal truth that improves lives and organizations forever. Godenriq helps you put a ding in the universe.

Recurring themes in our training material:
- Wisdom
- Strategy
- Management
- Leadership
- Calm
- Nautical
- Power (Energy)
- Experience (Wise Old Man)
- Bishops, Kings and Castles

Avoid overdoing:
- Chess as it relates to bishops
- Religious icons as it relates to bishops

By now I hope you have a good idea of the flavor: elegant, timeless classic with a modern twist. The logo should include one iconic element that can be the center of the brand. Something that can be worn on shirt cuffs and tie pins. Something that can be engraved into pens. Both monograms and icons will be accepted. If more than one letter will help creativity then use both "G" and "W". However, the "W" should be subtle. Cleverness is a plus but too clever can become a distraction.

Colors: As the professional you know best.

Gender: The name Godenriq has a lot of built in curves but it's namesake Godric is masculine. The design should emulate boldness and power. We want Trump to be envious and Warren Buffet to wonder why he wasn't invited (exaggerated for clarity).

I appreciate you reading this very long description and good luck.

Read full brief


  • After many. many hours reviewing all the designs and speaking with some of you about modifications we have finally decided on a winner. I want to speak a word of personal thanks to everyone who contributed to this contest both in talent and time. Toward the last day I was unable to personally respond to each submittal. The response was far greater than we expected and I was very impressed with many of the designs. It really helped us explore what our brand meant to us and what we wanted to say through it to our clients. While we can only choose one winner in this contest I will be and already have started to recommend this service to other entrepreneurs I know. Best of luck to all and thank you!

  • Hi Again, I have created a few color variations and also a new option with upper caps for the original #111 design #134 #135 #136 #137. This should help you look at the versatility/adaptability of the logo.
  • Hi CH, thank you for rating #111. I am open to making any revisions to it, so feel free to share your thoughts.

  • Finally, let's make the whole logo larger and increase red dot a little more. I like the gold and red you have here. I would also like to see a watermark version, a solid white against black background and a solid black against white background while keep the dot red in all iterations. #65
  • Also, please remove this lower bar connecting the G and W. #65
  • Let's try an iteration where we remove the silver W. #65

  • @sands_jon_m Hi CH, I have created #110 & #111 for your consideration. Based on your brief and updated comments I focused on your concept of 'the red dot'. But, while doing so, I wanted to steer way from a usual approach and create a unique design that clearly and easily conveys your company's vision.

    Both designs focus on your vision of finding focus and blocking out the distractions. The red dot emerges from the illusion of 'O' in the name and clears everything around it. Its simple, clean and crisp. To further reinforce this message one option has a small arrow within the red dot (just so you can compare with the other design). Please note that colors can be changed as per your preference.

    Would love to hear your thoughts, if this designs meets your vision.

    Best Regards
