Project description

NOTE ADDED 26 hours prior to contest ending... TO ALL CONTESTANTS: I have begun the process of eliminating designs, that I don't see as finalist contenders in this contest. I whish I had more time to give you all detailed feedback on every design you have submitted so far, but I have tried my best to keep up. In the end I am going to have to pick one, and only one winner, which is very VERY difficult, as many of you have shown extreme talent and creativity. I would have LOVED to be able to pick 3-4 winners of this contest. There is still 24 hours until I have to reach a final decision, and those that haven't been eliminated 8even if you have been eliminated), are more than welcome to submit more designs if you are so inclined, or if you would like to show variations of already submitted designs. I will comment on those designs only if I see them as significant improvements over previous entries, otherwise I will simply comment with a vote in rating! Best regards Henrik Delfer ----------------------------- ORIGINAL BRIEF ------------------------- I am looking for a new logo for my business as a Portrait and commercial photographer. I am looking for something elegant, yet simple. I wouldn't mind if the color purple was used in the design. I personally love minimalist designs, but don't mind seeing slightly more complex ideas. My general thoughts about the logo is something that is more soft and clean in shape as well as impression. Something that communicates "artist" more than "business". I generally tend to favor logos that appear hand drawn. As I am a Danish photographer, primarily aiming for the Danish market, I would like to see designs that include the exact text as follows: "Fotograf Henrik Delfer", but the logo design should be easily altered to be used in English as well with the text "Henrik Delfer Photography" As a photographer, I am all about the image and the moment that defines the image. It may be a certain moment in the cycle of a person breathing, the decisive moment in the movement of a dancer, an expression that defines a personality, or the timing in the capture, that portrays a feeling or a mood. It is about knowing, understanding and communicating in imagery that relays a sense of something truthful and honest. The clients that I am looking to attract would be anyone from the performing arts (such as; musicians, dancers, actors, singers) to businesses, ad agencies as well as private clients and art buyers. I am looking for a logo that can be used in a variety of formats from web to print. It is important for me that the logo scales well. It would be an added bonus if a recognizable part of the logo could rendered as a 16x16 pixel favicon. I would also like to logo to render well as a semitransparent watermark on the images that I showcase on the web. Thus it must retain cohesion if rendered on a variety of backgrounds (dark as well as light portions of an image). Perhaps a logo that can be inverted well could be a reasonable solution to this? ADDED AFTER FIRST ENTRIES APPEAR: Please do not be too obvious with the pictoral. Also please be mindful, that my name is my brand and therefore needs the most exposure. Creating great images is a process that takes thousands of small corrections to bring to life something that is greater than the sum of its parts. It's like a tree growing: over time, small corrections in it's growth - if done carefully and right - will bring about a tall and strong tree. There is an organic element to photographing as well as a scientific element. The base meaning of the word "Photography" is 'to paint with light'. Perhaps this 'painting' with light could be a part of the logo?
