The Guerrilla Trader
The Guerrilla Trader will promote an online day trading academy that features a specific trading style.
I know that the prize amount is less than a lot of designers would like, but I am starting this company on a shoe-string budget, and the winning designer will have the chance for more work in the future (probably a LOT of work). Its your classic my-job-is-falling-apart-hey-why-don't-I-go-start-a-business story. Hence the shoestring budget.
Anyway, the company website isn't done being developed (by myself), so I can't really point you there. Please contact me if you need additional information.
Target audience is most likely middle class to upper middle class who are interested in learning to trade, or taking control of their finances.
The logo should be bold, innovative, hip, eye-catching, but NOT overly colorful, nothing cartoonish. Incorporating some kind of a military theme might be good, but isn't required. BE CREATIVE!
Having some sort of a unique symbol seems like a good idea, but may not be required.
Should convey strength, and aggressiveness, all at the same time.
Needs to be a design that works on a website and on print (book covers, etc).
Be creative - see what you can come up with. I am not visually creative, which is why I need the expert help of all you designers out there.
I'm looking for a three-dimensional appearance, especially with some kind of a symbol.
If you want to see what I'm after, go look at "grade's" portfolio to get kind of an idea.
Also, check out these URLs for other logos that I like. Not that I want you to copy these in any way, just want to give you kind of an idea of what I am looking for.
Anyway, that's it. Go for it.
