  • deebasodee, Welcome to DesignContest! It's a pleasure to participate in your project. I present you our sugestion to your brand. This art is 100% original and it was designed specially for you. In this art, I concluded that giving it a tide feel would fit nicely. To this end, I chose to give some kind of motion to the font, similar to the one found in the ocean. To emphasize this concept, I have also added a few submarine bubbles so people can immediately assimilate your brand and the word "maritime". Moreover, I ended up using a little gradient on this word so we could give it an ocean feel as I mentioned. As you can see, the word goes from a light blue to a darker one giving it a sensation of depth. For the word "wiki", as you can follow, I simply seized the "W" letter shape in order to add one more little ring so it would look like an anchor. I found it to be very appropriate considering your intentions. I hope you like it! If you would like to add the "OMTD" initials or even it's meaning, please let me know so we can work on this together, OK? Thank you for the opportunity! Regardless of your decision, success! =) Best regard,
  • Hi! I submitted three entries: #2 , #3 and #4 . All of these have different fonts, and symbols and all of these 3 are very simplistic , modern logos. Please feel free to comment or leave feedback about the ideas , if you like them , or if you find something that can be useful in them. Thanks!
  • My design incorporates a ship wheel to imply Martime and a magnifying glass which implies searching for information in your vast database. Hope you like the design. P.S: Ratings will be quite helpful. Thank you. Regards, Limitless Creativity (LCMS).
  • Gery, yinyang, bradbarbee and ray - Thank you all for your submissions and comments Everyone has captured the maritime theme which I like very much. The website is a wiki, so people collaboration and contribution is the main way the site will be developed. Also promotion of "green" or renewable energy use is something we want to promote. The ones that capture my eye immediately are....#10, #15, #22
