Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

Business Name

Hello everyone,

First off, thank you for viewing my project brief. I am extremely excited to be setting up this new venture that will be a success on all fronts.

This logo has a lot of meaning and spirit behind it. I am a Maori from New Zealand and I want to be able to reflect my culture in this design but put a modern twist on it. I also want it to reflect the name of the company and its purpose.

Our Company name

The company name has a lot of meaning behind it and ties into the purpose of what we do.

FAR represents the journey that we have embarked on to deliver our purpose, whether its how far we have travelled or how far we have to go

KNOW signifies the knowledge we gain on this journey. It is about how we grow as individuals, family and as a company.

Combined it symbolises the ethos of our company as we understand that life is a journey, but with a good plan in place and an openness to learn, everyone will thrive from it.

Far-Know was born to deliver on two promises:

1. To create a successful people to people business where relationships really matter.


2. To use our resources and knowledge to set up our social enterprise, Far Know Engage, to make a bigger difference to our wider networks.

We don’t consider ourselves B2C or B2B. We are a people business. Far-Know is our vehicle, but we deal person to person. Relationships matter to us and it doesn’t matter if our connection is as a Customer, Supplier, Employee, Contractor, or Taxperson it’s how we engage that counts… (OK…. maybe we don’t love the taxperson as much, but we will try)

What do you do?

This is the parent company. The vast majority of people finding out about Far-Know are investors, future employees and suppliers.

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


You'll receive designs for biz cards, letterhead and envelopes.

Biz Cards - Please allow room for QR codes to be added to them... I want something stiking and powerful that will WOW people..... Tech Focused.....

Letterhead to have a logo, but also a nice footer design..

What is your industry?

Consulting and Professional Services

Describe the target audience for your logo and stationery

The audience groups that will be engaging with Far-Know

Future employees

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your logo and stationery?

1. The Logo to reflect the name and purpose of the company..... See attached doc.
2. Clean and Bold
3. Energy/Environment/Openess

What logo and stationery styles do you like (text only, image only, text and image, etc.)?

Open to all.....

What colors do you want to see in your logo and stationery?

My initial thoughts are to keep it simple.... Just Black and White.

I am also thinking a grey or different shade of black or white to highlight any details that you feel would benefit the design.

I would also like to see a creative spin on colour.

For all future spin offs of the Far-Know business I have a vision that the ? design in the middle of the logo would change colour and the circle would stay t

What colors do you NOT want to see in your logo and stationery?

For the creative design, I am open to anything

Brief updates

Hi all,

Thanks for the great effort so far.

Not sure if my brief was clear, but I will try and explain again.

Basically I am after a logo that looks like a question mark (?) that has a circle around it.

If you see my attached document you can see the 3 Maori symbols that I want encorporated into the design.

The top hook of the question mark is the Koru design and that slides around till it starts flowing down to the infinity loop or tripple loop.

That is encompassed by the circle of life....

Happy to answer any questions you may have, but really keen to get this right.

Hi all....

Please read the attached doc called meaning of the logo....

That should give you a really good starting point.

Hi all,

I have added a new file called TA MOKO.

It basically shows my maori culture tattoos... Red Circles around the tattoos show the koru styled pattern I want to use on my logo and business cards.

please take a look at this as well as using google images SEARCH "TA MOKO" to get a real feel for how I want the three patterns integrated.

Thanks again for your input on this project. I am really enjoying seeing your creativity in this project.
