Sacred Music NY

I couldn't be happier with the results of the contest. At first, I was a little nervous because some of the early designs were not even close to what I was hoping for, but as time went on, and additional artists (who took their time!) added their contributions, it became clear we were going to have some difficult decisions to make. When all was said and done, we had several logo designs that we easily could have been happy with. The website made everything run smoothly and the support was excellent. Whenever I had a question, I was able to get an immediate answer from someone using the chat feature. I'm extremely pleased and would recommend the site to anyone seeking a great design.

Project description

We need a logo for a multi-faith, multi-cultural sacred music festival for the city of New York called Sacred Music NY. We're planning a world-class event with world-class performers from around the world, and we will need a world-class logo to match. 

The logo will be used as the heart of our branding on all marketing materials and merchandise from print to online. The logo should capture the multi-faith nature of the event, be colorful, fun, modern and hip. We also need to incorporate our tag line "celebrating music of the soul". 

Make sure to incorporate some sort of universal spiritual imagery or actual religious symbols in your entry or it will not be considered. 

Also, I will not be available for comments or feedback on 10/3, 10/5 or 10/6 so please be patient and keep those submissions coming!

  • A quick update: our steering committee is set to meet next Wednesday to go over the finalist entries and make its choice. Thanks for your patience. We're almost there.
  • A heartfelt thank you, once more, to everyone who submitted designs for this contest. So much creativity. So much great energy. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all your efforts. I know that for most of you, that won't translate into a win, but so much of the work is truly wonderful and I'm sorry we can only pick one. We're going to narrow down our choices on Tuesday and then hope to schedule a meeting of our steering committee within the next week to select a winner. Thank you for your patience as we work through this process. We hope to have everything finalized by the middle to end of October.
  • Thanks Jay. Appreciate your efforts, but I don't think this captures the Sacred aspect of the festival and overemphasizes the NY aspect. Nice work, though. Looks great. #268

  • Dear Contest Holder, Please check the entries with new fonts...hope you like #259 and #260
  • My main focus for the logo design is the colour scheme and giving it a fresh and contemporary edge. I was tempted to use religious iconography but didn't wish to fall on cliches, so just let good font treatment and colour choices carry the idea. #261

  • Design with new fonts #259
  • Dear Contest holder, please go through the entries #245 and #246 as these are with diff. font styles.. Regards...
    • @Regh The font for "Celebrating..." is fine. I do not like the font for Sacred Music NY. Try something that looks handwritten or cursive, please.

    • @mikeweis - Yes sure. I will defiantly work on it again...Regards..
