It started off quite slow - there as a 13-year-old who was submitting designs to me. But after the first day or two, better and more experienced designers came on board - and the experience was really good.

Project description

My personal logo - I am a burner (See Burningman.com), a healer (See Thejourney.com), an architect specialized in high end sustainable design, an artist, a jivamukti-certified yoga instructor (See Jivamuktiyoga.com), and an actress. I am also a motivational speaker, an environmental activist, and a philanthropist. As an artist, I love colors, sacred geometry, and fractal, like flower of life, tree of life, plan view of a diamond or 'cell' structure. I am a trained architect and Vitruvius Man and the Golden Mean are my second nature visually and spatially - proportion and symmetry are important to me. I grew up painting in watercolor (Chinese brush painting and calligraphy), so I really appreciate the human touch. Please look into the various links and try to come up with something that describes a renaissance woman who has a unique style, a compassionate heart, and radiates healing energy. I think there is something in common to the logos of Burning Man, The Journey, and Jivamukti. I hope this is enough information for you to work on. Please feel free to email me for any further questions.

      |--| I suggest that you do some research on all the key words in my brief from the various professions to the cities - so you get an idea of a 'mood board'. I like simple things but I don't need anyone to 'write' my name for me, I am also a calligrapher - I want a symbol or something meaningful that resonate with the many sides of me.

  • Thanks but this is really bad - could you give it another few go?
  • Hey Contest Holder, i just did my 3rd logo ever, i hope u like it, please give your comments on it :)
  • Thank you for your fast response. The look and feel is nice but I am not too keen on the lotus flower - it's too common and rigid looking compared to the free hand writing.

      |--| If I knew what font to use, I would not be holding this contest. I am looking for a logo - it doesn't have to have words in it.

  • Hi ContestHolder, Please see my initial entry. Looking forward for your feedback! Thank you! God Bless!
  • very interesting. could you get a better image of the person inside? the silhouette is actually too cartoony.

      |--| The new design is such a huge development from the first one - looks very powerful - could you perhaps tone it down a bit and play with repetition of 1, 4, 7, 13? it's quite nice already - honestly, I am pleasantly surprised to be getting quite a few great designs in this contest.

  • why did you pick six petals?

      |--| As I was working with the fractal spiral, I though of incorporating a floral structure by rotating the stroke at 60 degrees in a way that the spirals wouldn't clash or overlap. It wasn't giving me the floral feel as much so I added the petals aligning them with the spirals. It resulted in six petals due to the size and the structure.

      |--| It could symbolize many parts about you. I had the idea of each petal representing something about you. What do people usually remember you by? What is their feedback on your work? That way you know what reminds people of you and apply those features into the logo. It could also be something like your core values so that it's more personal.

  • Interesting - how did you come up with this?
    • I was inspired by your multiple talents and interests. I share the same interest in fractals, sacred geometry, and the golden ratio. I looked for common denominators in each of you professions and found serenity, balance, wisdom and nature and combined those elements into an abstract form.

  • No sorry, this is not the right direction - the golden mean is just a guideline for the importance of proportion - it is not to be taken literally into a logo.
  • could you show me a version without the circle outside?
  • could you show me a version without the circle outside?
  • Very interesting - I am big on numerology - the number 1, 7, and 13 are important to me. Could you work that in and let me see how it might look?
    • Of course, I'll work on that and submit a new entry shortly. Thanks for the feedback and rating!

    • Hi again! In #13 there are 13 "diamonds" and 7 long lines in the "sun" around the eye. Also, inside the "diamonds" is the roman number of 1. In #14 I put the roman figures of 1, 7 and 13 inside the "diamonds" shape. Hope you like it...

  • could you explain your design to me please?
  • Life in Proportion? What does that mean? Sorry, please read my brief and submit something properly.
  • Hi Joy, I submitted entry #11. I took a stab from your brief and used a subtle illustration of the golden ratio. I added a tag line. appreciate some feedback. dlbonanno64
