Winning design #39 by Iridith, Logo Design for John Dub Contest
Gold Medal

designed by Iridith

Project description

The logo will be used to identify my music under the stage name of John Dub and my band Bass Lift. The type of music played is mostly Reggae, but with a rock/pop/latin feel. Here are some design ideas: 1) Please reference the images I uploaded. 2) The design will be a lion standing up and facing left, with my stage name of "JOHN DUB" right above the lion, and all within a shield. 3) Please reference image IMG_2014059....The shield should be the same shape as what is seen. The lion should have the same shape as well, although shrunk down to so fit the "JOHN DUB" above it and within the shield. 4) Please reference image lamborghini-car....The lion should have a similar type of design as compared with the bull, when it comes to shading/highlighting, interior contours of muscles, etc. The words "JOHN DUB" should follow the contour of the top of shield, similar to how it is within the lambo logo. 5) The outline of the shield and the lion should be the yellow/gold color. 6) The background should be half black and half green, split up the middle. The green should be on the right. 7) Once the design is finalized I will need another copy made with the word, "BASS LIFT" on the top of the shield.

      |--| I was just following Contest Holder's request, and based vector heraldic (generic) lion to match his sample (see his attached file). From what I see of other designs that have not been deleted did the same thing. Am I being singled out, or do I just not see other's infractions?

    • Mine was removed and I didn't even use clip art I made that with a pen tool basing it on a design! This is an outrage! He wants a lion and he got one, what can I do!

      |--| eric it was in your infraction the link to the clipart http://thumbs.dreamstime.com/z/proud-lion-rampant-symbol-classic-imagery-grouped-heraldic-mascot-imagery-crest-designs-29859772.jpg

    • your infraction showed this http://ferrousink.co.za/products/images/tattoos/large/standing_lion_017.jpg Our rules are very clear no clipart or existing art allowed in logo contests

    • But if he wants that lion, if I remake it myself, how is that clip art? I understand its an existing design, but so is every lion up there.. The similarities between most of them are disgraceful, google Standing Lion Crest or Standing Lion PNG, there you'll find every one of these lions.

    • You can make the lion on your own and can use inspiration but the artwork and lion itself has to be your own creation , your lion is exact copy.

    • Thank you, Sharie! Are all of the artists violating the rules or only certain people? I DEFINITELY want the logo to be legal and copyrightable. It's going to be used as a graphic used for my songs, albums, web site, press kits, etc. For example, when you look for my music on iTunes and you pull up once of my songs, this will be the logo used for the song. It must be legit (legal). 8-) -John

    • Ok, Fair enough. But tell me the difference between some of the lions on there, and some that are on the internet, because looking at a few of them all the difference I see is colour. And I actually remade mine rather than opening it in illustrator like half of these look like.

    • I looked up standing lion and found a lion image that looks very similar to many of these logs, if not all. Sherie, may I purchase a stock image and then send that to everyone who can use it for this purpose only? Below is a link to the lion I actually prefer. I will check to see that if I purchase it I amy use it for my logo. http://www.dreamstime.com/photos-images/heraldic-rampant-lion-illustration-excellent-medieval-crest-imagery.html

    • Sharie, it appears that I can purchase the clipart/image that they seem to be using. Below is a link. Once I purchase it, then I believe that it can be used for my logo, royalty free. Can we do it this way? http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photography-proud-lion-rampant-symbol-classic-imagery-grouped-heraldic-mascot-imagery-crest-designs-image29859772 -John -John

      |--| You can do this but you have to make sure you will own all the rights to that design so you can copyright and trademark you would need to see if buying the design allows for logo use also, some of these stock sites do not sell the art for commercial or logo use so that would need to be checked into. Please let us know what you find out Thank you

  • Also... 1) I would like JOHN DUB to be centered, however, I don't want the N to be placed between the black/green border. So I suggest that you have the N and B at the same distance away from the black/green border and then have the letters of D-U-B spaced across the greens section in such a way that makes the JOHNDUB centered. I hope I'm explaining this clear enough 8-)
  • This is very good! Below are my recommended edits: 1) Please remove the dot (.) between the JOHN and DUB. 2) Reduce the fonts lower on both images so that the JOHN is clearly in the black, DUB is in the GREEN, BASS is in the black, and LIFT is in the green.
  • This is a very good design! Here are some recommended edits: 1) Please make the yellow border of the shield 30% thinner. 2) Please remove the dot between JOHN and DUB and move the DUB over a bit to the left, close to the black/green border - the same distance between the N and the border. 3) Please change the name from BASSLIFTER to "BASSLIFT". Well done!

  • Sorry about the typo on #11. #12 is the correction. Let me know how you like them please... Thank you, eRic
  • It's better, but... 1) If you can please change the shape to how #5 looks, that would be great! 2) I'm not crazy about the font. Something thicker. Do you have Silom (first choice), Impact (second choice), or Adabi (third choice)? 3) Please remove the gradient from the shields yellow rim. Thank you!
    • Removed gradient, added Impact, "Silom" is the font I first used, which is pixelated and horrible, it doesn't look nice, so I went with impact, you told me to change the silom one :) I fixed the shield also. thanks, Peter.

  • Hi basslift, Thanks for your feedback, have made them changes and hope you like! Kind regards. #9 Peter.
  • Thank you, great start! 1) I prefer the top version and the ones with yellow lion and not dark yellow...2nd and 4th from the left. 2) please place a dot in between JOHN and DUB, like "JOHN.DUB" 3) please make curve of font align with the top of the shield curve while keeping the position in tact. 4) please add more detail to the line, perhaps an eye and more shadowing...but definitely an eye. 5) please move bass and lift together so it makes up the word "BASSLIFT".
    • Will get right on it........thanks for the feedback!

  • Please remove the gradient from the right side of graphic. thx!
  • Getting better...thx 1) Please make the shape of the shield uniform. Each side appears to have a different shape. The left side seems better while the right side curses too much. 2) I like what you are doing with the lion. Can you please fill in the detail for the lion with black? This will make the lion not appear transparent. 3) Please shapen the font - it's sort of boxy / pixely. Use another font if necessary. Thank you!
  • Hi basslift, can you please have a look at #8 :) Thanks, Peter.
  • Making a few changes, will upload another shortly, Thanks. Peter
  • please make font sharper...
  • disregard the BASSLIFT font request, you seem to have BASSLIFT as one word already...thx
  • Looking better... 1) please make the color of the lion same as the color yellow of the font and edge of shield. 2) please find a sharper font 3) please move BASS and LIFT close together so that that make the word "BASSLIFT". 4) Please reduce the size of the lion slightly. 5) Please remove black line from around lion.
  • Made some changes, what you think. Thanks for the feedback much appreciated, Peter.
  • please make the other adjustments to the interior of the lion, add a black line to the exterior of the font... thx
  • please change the font style to "Silom"
