Past Forward

The Design Contest experience exceeded my expectations. Instead of the 50 entries we anticipated we had over 220, several of which were of very high quality. We found it very easy to communicate our feedback to designers and found the designers very responsive. Having used a design studio before, paid considerably more money for fewer options and being left with design options that still didn't meet our needs we will be sure to use Design Contest again in the future. Better value, more choice, more chance for revisions and quick turn-around = 'no-brainer'.

Project description

'Past Forward' is the name of a new History focused YouTube channel and digital media production company. It is a play on 'fast forward', the typical icon for which could be incorporated into the design. The design should look modern and be suitable or adaptable for use as an icon on YouTube and at the end of videos. 

Update two days in to the competition: Thanks to those who have made entries. Remember that the logo needs to work as a YouTube channel icon. Several entries so far wouldn't work this way. Also try representing both the 'P' and the 'F' in your designs. We're also looking for a logo that would look good in white outline at the end of films and something that is bold when in colour. We'd also be interested to see some ideas for pictorial marks.
