Grit & Polish

This was the BEST BEST BEST BEST BEST experience ever! I spent over a year talking with designers who all wanted an exorbitant deposit for up to 3 designs without any design direction I became very frustrated. I did not want to make such a significant investment for a logo, not knowing if they truly understood my vision. A friend told me about Designcontest and I immediately started an contest. I am extremely picky and was beyond impressed with the designs. This concept was exactly what I was hoping for and only wish I would have know about it a year ago! The entire process was amazing, especially the customer service and response from the designers. I can't express enough how AMAZING this company is and would recommend to ANYONE who is looking for a logo design. I can't imagine anyone who would have anything negative to say!

Project description

Looking for a logo to WOW me. Sophisticated and Edgy. Grit & Polish is a woman owned business that provides unique cultural experiences in the City of Detroit. Detroiters have been described as gritty and polished. I don't necessarily need the word DETROIT in the logo, but if it makes sense i would definitely put it in. Don't want any "stock" looking designs. Want it to have a custom looking feel. I like a melded texture that looks refined.

  • hi! loving your logo! thanks for the entry. would you mind showing me a couple variations with adding the word Detroit to the logo. Maybe showing it in all caps and upper and lower caps in a couple fonts that compliment the logo. Also, maybe inside and outside the circle. THANKS SO MUCH! #48

  • Really liking your logo!!!!! I am definitely not going with a pink logo but had the idea of a copperish/rosegoldish /pewterish metallic foil (ie the polished aspect) on printed business cards. So, can i see the logo part in just white and a few "metallic style" colors. Thanks so much! #101
