What is the exact name you would like in your logo?

FutureCrafting

What is your industry?

Consulting and Professional Services

What are the top 3 things you would like to communicate through your logo?

FutureCrafting is a crowdsourcing-driven social innovation lab to craft better futures. It is built on the core belief that we have the opportunity and the obligation to:

1. Use design and technology to create innovations to craft better futures
2. Do it in a way that creates both societal and financial impact
3. Do it together with our community, by tapping into their insights

I would like the FutureCrafting logo to communicate there three core beliefs.

What logo styles do you like (image + text, image only, text only, etc.)

I would like the logo to have both image and text, with the image on the left and the text on the right.

I would like the text font to be simple and professional, but also attractive. Perhaps, we can use two different fonts: a modern font for future and a handwritten font for crafting.

I would like to use the image as a favicon on the website and as a design element in the website/ slide deck (see http://citiesnext.org/).

I like the logos of http://squareup.com/, https://thelevelup.com, https://gathercontent.com/, http://maluuba.com/, http://getlittlebird.com/, http://kickfolio.com/, http://gosphero.com/, http://flipboard.com/, http://joebutton.com/, https://grove.io/, https://forkly.com/, http://visual.ly/,

Do you have any other info or links you want to share?

The work-in-progress website is at http://futurecrafting.com.

Brief updates

I would also like to receive stationary, including business card, letterhead and envelope in the same file formats as the logo. I am trying to get this fixed at CrowdSpring's end, but I am posting an update here in the interim.

Based on the 30+ entries I have seen, here's what I like:

- Overall: Clean design with image and text in the same line, with image on right.

- Font: Clean, strong, solid, but unusual fonts. Ideally, different, but balanced, fonts for 'Future' and 'Crafting'. If same font, different colors/ thickness for 'Future' and 'Crafting'.

- Image: Simple, solid image which is related to the brief (design, technology, community, crowdsourcing, collaboration, co-creation, collective intelligence, sharing, insights, innovation, sustainability, wellness, learning, sensor data, social data). I like the options with origami, but not birds and animals.

- Color: Simple color scheme, with shades of one primary color mixed with shades of gray. I think I prefer Purple or Turquoise Blue, but I am happy to see alternatives.

I hope that helps.

My apologies. In the update above, I meant:

- Overall: Clean design with image and text in the same line, with image on left.

Like I mentioned before, I would also like to receive stationary, including business card, letterhead and envelope in the same file formats as the logo. I would also like to use the image in the logo as a design element in the stationary, apart from the website and slide deck. CrowdSpring has officially changed the project to Logo + Stationary, and I have increased the award to $400 to cover the expanded scope. Please accept my apologies for the changes.

Hi,

Based on the 50+ logos I have seen, here is the updated list of suggestions:

- Overall: Clean design with image and text in the same line, with image on left and text on right.

- Font: Clean, strong, solid, but unusual fonts. Ideally, a modern font for 'Future' and a handwritten font for 'Crafting'. If same font, different colors/ thickness for 'Future' and 'Crafting'.

- Image: Simple, solid image which is related to the brief (design, technology, community, crowdsourcing, collaboration, co-creation, collective intelligence, sharing, insights, innovation, sustainability, wellness, learning, sensor data, social data). I like the options with origami, but not birds and animals. Some images to consider for inspiration, not as standalone images, but as mashups: infinity, robot, globe, circuit board. I would also like the image to be used as a flexible design unit on the stationary, apart from the slide deck and the website.

- Color: Simple color scheme, with shades of purple mixed with shades of gray.
