Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

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

Your name or your company name. This is not about us... it's about YOU, and a visual branding of your Creative self.

What is your industry?

Design? Writing? Motion Graphics? Fashion? You tell us what your industry is and how it will be best represented.

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

This project is designed to challenge you to find the best way to brand yourself or your company in the open marketplace. The three things your entry should show are:

1) who you are,
2) what you are about, and
3) how your creativity defines you.

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

How you choose to brand yourself and the style that best does this is completely up to you. The image can contain your name, a word, a phrase, an image, a photograph, or a combination of all of these.

Do you have a current avatar you use for your branding? Does it need refreshing, or is it so awesome that you wouldn't change a thing? We are open to including entries with your current branding as long as you can articulate why this is great branding.

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

It's super important that you take the time to describe why this image works for your personal branding. When you submit your entry, be sure to take the time to tell us why you think your entry reflects your brand.

If you don't have design software, don't sweat it. We will be considering creative photos as well, so grab that camera and get to work. It is best if you save your image as a square, and post it at 800 x 800 pixels (this is our maximum). Please make sure it is no smaller than 50 x 50 pixels.

If you are a writer wanting to team up with a designer for the project, you can partner up! You can use this thread on the Forums to find someone to work with:
http://www.crowdspring.com/forums/general-discu...

We will soon be launching a revised creative browse where the avatar will have much more importance - so you will want to be sure to have a great image for your personal branding!

A panel of judges at crowdSPRING will select the winning entries, but we want input from the Creative community. At the end of the project, we will open up the project to get your feedback.

You rock. You know it, we know it... now it's time to show it.

We look forward to celebrating YOU!!!

Hey Creatives,

It's great to see so many of you participating so quickly. For most of these, we will not really be requesting changes, as the goal is finding something that is great for YOU. But we do love being able to see all these great images in one place and are inspired by your creativity.

We will be starting out the process by awarding up to 3 stars, then in later rounds upgrade some of the scores. This is merely just a way of organizing the project, so please don't be discouraged by your score.

It's hard to judge how the designs fit your branding if you don't explain the entry. Don't forget to include your reasoning when you submit.

Thanks!

Hey everyone,

We are very impressed with what we are seeing in this project! If you do not yet have an avatar set up on your profile page, we hope this project will help inspire you to think about how to best show everyone who you are and what you are about.

Early next week, we will be reviewing the entries and upgrading some of the scores. If you submit more than one concept, we ask that you think about which image best represents you, and let us know either in a comment or by withdrawing your extra entries.

Thanks! ~ Your cS Crew

Hey Creatives,

We are continuing to get some entries that are samples of designs you have made for other people. We want to see entries created to represent YOU and YOUR creative brand. If you posted one of these entries, please withdraw and post an entry that follows the brief guidelines.

Thanks!

We just want to clarify once more - we want to see a design you could use for your avatar, not samples of branding work you have done for others.

Thanks!
