My overall experience with Design Contest was great. I was able to get a great new logo for my podcast and had a lot of artists willing to work with me in order to achieve that. Perhaps the worst part was that everyone who submitted a design cannot win. I tried to provide as much feedback as I could, when I could. We had 100+ entries, and while some of them were pretty awful, others were extremely innovative. Perhaps the one negative we had was that a design we were strongly considering from an artist who was very helpful, talented and eager was removed from our choices without us being given a reason as to why. The artist messaged us that she was flagged for some type of design infringement, but this was never conveyed to us nor was the legitimacy of the claim verified. In particular, this artist was being strongly considered for first place, and certainly would have finished in second place had her designs not been removed. While we certainly appreciate Design Contest's help in avoiding future copyright / legal trouble, we would have liked to have been notified somehow as to why the design was removed.

Project description

I am looking for a logo for my podcast, Ordinary Marathoner.  The logo should be simple, fun, and easily recognizable.  It may be different colors, but should also be adaptable to a 1-color design to put on t-shirts and other apparel.

  • Thank you all for your entries. We have tried to comment on as many as possible. At this point, we don't want to waste anyone's time by requesting revisions to concepts we are not considering, even though we realize some of you have put a great deal of effort and pride into your work. We feel like we have a few contenders and will be making our decision on Saturday.
