Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

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

Berserk

What is your industry?

Retailing

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

The logo should communicate innovation, high quality and modern design.
I'm looking for a futuristic logo, which is able to represent a berserker character from the 24th century.
The logo should not contain a sketch of a berserker! It should only represent a future berserker warrior in it's best way without showing a berserker.

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

I already have a sketch concept of a berserker:

This guy will take the roll of the representing character of the whole project Berserk. Please don't mind any colours and feel free to use whatever you want except too much of red elements. So what is currently needed is a logo in a shape of a B together with the rest of the word "erserk". The idea is that only the B logo will be printed on the headphones. Full font including the B will be printed on packaging / used on website / social media etc.

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

Project Berserk was initiated in May 2012. The key business includes the development and manufactoring of premium headphones (equal to beatsbydre, monster audio, skullcandy etc.) and earphones. The berserker will be the main character advertising for this project. The main target group are young people from 19-29 years and besides also the ages 14-19 / 29-34. In the rollout we'll launch a huge campaign in Germany and advertise with testimonials from the German hiphop scene.

Dear project participators,

I want to say thank you very much to all people participating in this logo creation contest. What I can say from my side is that I've worked with many talented people within the last days. It is a great pleasure to work with everyone of you and there is no doubt that I'll find the ultimate logo at the end of the deadline.

Now what I realised is that is kinda unfair, that only one user will be rewarded and all others get nuts. This is not cool. Of course I could add more awards in order to make it more fair for the 2nd / 3rd place but I'm afraid this would exceed my budget.

Therefore I've decided for now to send out the flagship headphones from Berserk (so the best one I'll have at the rollout summer 2013) to all the people who reached the top5 ranking in this project. I'll even think about giving out another headphone model to the people ranked 5-10 but before I can decide this, we need more participators at this project. Please notice, that the headphones will be available around September 2013 I think and can't be send before.

So keep up that good work, thanks a lot for your support, your feedback, your nice artwork and I wish all of you great success with whatever you do besides this project.

Best Regards,
Jakob

First of all I want to say thank you to all participators of this project. We currently reached nearly 300 entries and for now I can say that I'm counting 18 finalists. This means that 18 different designers were able to provide at least one design, which fits to the briefing and looks incredible.

Now I already told some of the designers, that in the end I won't decide about which entry is the best. This is impossible for me since there are too many really good concepts and designs.
So in the end my partners and friends will vote for their favourites and based on the votings the winner will be determine.

The winner will get the award of this project (337 USD).
Those designers who placed 2, 3, 4 and 5 (total 4) will receive a headphone from Berserk, once it's available on the market (approximately September 2013). It will be not just a headphone - it will be the flagship headphone from Berserk (so the best available at that time) AT LEAST worth 125 EUR.

So I'm extending the contest until May the 19th, since the whole voting process will take place from May the 17th until May the 19th.

I wish all of you best of luck at this contest and I hope that I've found a fair way on how to determine the winners.

Best Regards,
Jakob

To all the designers who were involved in this contest:

It was a great pleasure working with all of you and bringing the best results up on this contest. So many designs and so many talented people were involved in this contest. The votings for the designs are running. It's funny to see how the voting results change, when looking of the gender of the voters. While women focus on some sort of designs, men vote for other sort of designs. For now there seem to be around 4 different designs which have many votes and some with few votes. It will probably take some time to finalise this process and select a winner. So thanks a lot for your patience. In the end I'll update the briefing with exact results and inform you about the winners (place 1 gets the award / place 2-5 gets a headphone later this year).

Best Regards,
Jakob

The voting is still running. Once I have a clear result, I'll pick the winner and list the top5 ranking.

Thanks a lot for your patience!

Dear Users,

I've now removed all creatives which didn't have enough votes after the first voting session. The top 20 list will remain in the finals. 13 creatives with a total of 20 designs will remain in the contest. Please notice that my partners and friends have voted for their favourites and therefore I'm sorry for those creatives, who didn't make it into the finals.

Once the voting process has been finished, I'll publish the results and pick the winner.

Thanks a lot for your comprehension!

Best Regards,
Jakob

Dear finalists,

the votes are still running. There are already 3 logos which seem to reach the top3 ranks. Actually I can't say anything unless the voting process has not ended.

With this in mind thanks a lot for your patience!

Best Regards,
Jakob

@CS-Team: Stop sending me eMails which include the term that you'll close this project and all logos will get lost. I still have 18 days to award this project and the logo selection process is really important for this project. If you should delete this project before the deadline, I'll definitely not accept this behaviour.
