Reflare is a young start-up in the IT area. Currently we offer security consulting and iPhone development services (quirky, but it keeps the customer base broad). We are all in our 20s yet very good at what we do. Incorporation was the next step up after years of freelance and consulting work.
I know that 150$ isn't what some of you guys deserve for your designs. In the past (working at bigger companies) I have overseen a few contests here and was always amazed by the results. I wish I could offer better compensation, but even this stretches our budget at the moment.
Let me make you an offer:
I guarantee 100% feedback. As quick as I can humanly give it.
Also, the contest will be guaranteed as soon as 99Designs allows it and at least one submission reaches 5 stars.
I will do all I can to make this contest as fun and exciting for participating designers as possible.
Help us get a logo for our company - use your creativity to give it a face.
We are targeting companies of all sizes. Most customers are acquired through direct contact at conferences/events or word of mouth. Thus we need a logo that conveys trustworthiness as well as being memorable.
In the end, executives will make the decisions whether to contract us or buy one of our products. Thus the logo should not be too geeky or technical.
It's up to you. Set your creativity free!
You can use the company name as part of the logo, make it the logo itself, add a symbol to the name, integrate the name into a symbol... whatever you think is cool. Also, the capitalization of "Reflare" is optional. "reflare", "reFlare" or any other combination can be used.
The only requirements we have are:
- It must look good on light and dark backgrounds (separate versions for light and dark backgrounds are also ok)
- We need the final logo as a PSD
Apart from that, go crazy. You will have the feedback you need to experiment.
