Project description

(UPDATED 4/21) - With just under 24 hours to go I still can't say thanks enough for all the amazing entries. THANK YOU to everyone who has taken the time to enter. While I do have a couple favorites it is not a done deal yet… so if you have any last minute ideas… PLEASE enter them. Check out the example file that I submitted as I really do like the circular design that was entered but I also like the square one that I saw another photographer use. I look forward to seeing a few more and making a decision tomorrow! (Updated Tues 4/15) THANK YOU everyone for submitting so many excellent designs. There are a few within that have already been submitted that I LOVE… but due to the quantity and great quality that have been coming in at the last minute… I have extended the contest for one more week! I have eliminated many cool logos that just don't fit for my needs at this time… and left the ones that are most eye catching and appealing to me. Take a look and submit if you have something that you think might work! I have also just uploaded an example file… two logos that I would say are most along the lines of what I am looking for… one is the front runner in this contest (which does not mean copy it) and another one that I found on a search of the web. Again… THANK YOU. I look forward to what comes next… --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Greetings from Will Byington Photography… A freelance photographer based out of Chicago who specializes in Music, People, Sports, Adventure/Travel photography. I am willing to travel worldwide for clients and one of my best clients has me photographing 12 rock and roll cruises a year with the likes of Kid Rock, 311, KISS, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sister Hazel, Lyle Lovett, and MANY more bands. I am in the process of updating my website that I just launched at www.willbyington.com with a new layout at the start of the year. 5 years ago I had the current logo designed through Design Contest and I thought it might be time for a new look! I am in the process of adding pictures and more to my site… but it should give you an idea of some of my work. You can also view my Instagram/Twitter at @willbyington to get an idea of the kind of work I do. I am not 100% set on any one idea… but as I am watermarking my images more and more in the corners usually… One idea that I am interested in is the look/feel of a passport stamp. Use that as you wish… I want it to be eye catching but also readable when it is posted as a watermark, etc. I do think I would also like it to include: willbyington.com / @willbyington in some way if possible. Think outside the box… Don't think about it like a photographers logo exactly. I am seeing a lot of shutters and cameras or take offs on these concepts… not sure that is where I want to go with this. Hope this helps. I look forward to working with all of you!

  • your entry is too much like entry 10 http://www.designcontest.com/logo-design/will-byington-photography/entry/14
  • Hello CH, I've uploaded entry #13 which takes on the passport stamp look. I used the cancellation mark (wavy lines) and played them up as light waves entering a prism, to represent photography with an old school, vintage (stamp days) element, and avoid the diaphragms and cameras as you requested. I hope this is to your liking. Please let me know what you think and whether you'd like to see any changes. Thanks, Victor Fdez
  • I've submitted #8. Hope you like it:) -Victor.........
  • Thank you for the 2 entries and versions of this logo… Of the ones I received this morning, yours were the ones I liked most… but still not what I want at this time. I'd say I am looking for a little more rock and roll… A little more unique. I like the circle design… but one of the problems I have is that the W kind of gets lost. I also kind of want to stay away from just a WB due to Warner Brothers. Thank you again.
  • Thank you for your entries. I like the idea of the world as the shutter click… but I don't think this is the direction I want to go at this time for my logo. I also find the fonts used below tough to read. Thank you for the time and entry though.
  • Thank you for your entry. Too chunky and not really the direction I want to go with my logo at this time. Thank you.
