UPDATED 5/22: To all the lovely designers who have put your heart and soul into creating such beautiful art...thank you from the bottom of my hear! I can't tell you how much I appreciate you "putting yourself out there" and sharing a part of you, with me and others watching. :) I have been so impressed with what you've come up with...so creative and unique! <3
I will be heading off on vacation with my family this Friday (I am on Eastern Time in Florida, USA), so I will not be able to log into the context on the last day it's live - this Saturday, 5/27. Thus, I will be announcing my favorite logo design by this Friday morning (if not sooner)! I wish I had enough money to give a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th...place award too! I am sorry that I can't financially award each of you for your hard work and dedication. :/ Please just know that I thank you from the bottom of my heart! A logo for a new company - especially when your company was a "passion project" that turned into a dream, that turned into reality - is so very important and meaningful! I personally can't thank you enough for all you've done to make this part of my journey very, very special... :) Keep creating, keep expressing, and keep being YOU! :D
With endless gratitude,
UPDATED 5/18: I increased the award from $325 to $425. :)
UPDATED 5/18: My business' name is "Taproot". However, please feel free to also include three (3) additional words in the logo if you can find a way to make it look good, but not too busy. The words are:
THE OVERALL DESIGN shoud be on the simpler, more "clean" side...but I increased the award amount to include incentive for artists to add DETAIL in one aspect of the logo. This detail can be in the leaves of a tree, the roots of a tree, in the human hands (to make them look realistic), or in the coloring (for example, providing a graduation from lighter green to darker green). I've see a few examples where leaves were different shades of green, or seeds are made up of various different greens. This kind of DETAIL catches the eye, and makes the overall quality of the logo look more professional. ;) You don't have to go overboard; a little detail or doing something a little unexpected goes a long way. :)
A "taproot" is the main root of a plant, out of which other roots grow.
