Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

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


What is your industry?


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

Elegant, classy and modern.

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

Open to suggestions. Image can be the letter "m" or a play on the letter "m". Open to suggestions.

I am a fan of the color Grey. I feel it is elegant and classy. A mix of Grey and any other color that goes well with Grey would be welcome.

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

Marj Group is a private holding company that invests in multiple start-up business in the Middle East (specifically in Dubai). Marj Group has several sister companies that fall under the group (such as Marj Investments, Marj Foods, Marj Entertainment, etc.). The sister companies will utilize the same base of the logo so the word "Marj" should be fixed and we should be able to change the word "Group" to "investments" or "Foods" while maintaining the same look and feel as the main logo "Marj Group".

A logo has been developed for Marj Investments ( in the past. This logo will be replaced with the new entry as well. I have tried (but failed) to create my own logo. See attached.

Brief updates

Hi Everyone - First of all I would like to thank you all for your submissions and efforts. There has been an overwhelming response to this job, and I appreciate every single entry and effort made.

Many of you are asking how "Marj" is spelt in Arabic. Although this was not part of my brief, some of you have incorporated "Marj" in Arabic rather than an image, and it actually looks good.

Marj in Arabic is spelt as follows: مرج
Each letter alone is: م ر ج

Good luck to you all.

Hi All - There have been a much higher number of submissions than we expected, therefore we have decided to give you all a chance by extending the deadline to March 21. This will be the final deadline.

Overall, we are loving the entries with English and Arabic on top.

Keep up the great work.
