Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

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

Practical Workshops

What is your industry?


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


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

Image + Text; Image only; Text only.
Please note the Company's Registered Name is Practical Workshops; but this has proven to be too vague ie it does not convey instantly what we do; as such we've had to include on our website and stationery"Life Skills, Social Skills, Soft Skills" for clarity. We'll consider options of the extra text included and extra text excluded (ie a standalone logo that manages to convey our business instantly) please.

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

We offer training programs for Executives and C-Suites in the Financial industry. Our website colours are different shades of blue; the buttons are in russet. We'd like to maintain the blue-ness in our logo but will also consider other complimentary colours. We're not looking for a trendy logo but one that represents what we do.

A clarification about the logo's colours - our preference is for it to be in white; we will consider other colours if they compliment the website's blue colours.

Hi Everyone,

Thank you very much - we appreciate your effort and very creative entries! They have given us a lot to think about!

UPDATE to our brief:
We've narrowed our vision now to the following specifics.

1) FYI: Our tagline is Feel great, speak great, be great! The tagline will not be part of the logo.

2) We'd like the logo to incorporate ONLY the company name ie PRACTICAL WORKSHOPS.

3) We'd like an image to incorporate "Life Skills - Social Skill - Soft Skills".

Thank you very much once again for your entries.

Hi Everyone,

Thank you very much for some absolutely brilliant entries!

Unfortunately, we've had to give some rather low scores to some of these designs because while they're stunning masterpieces, they did not incorporate our brief.

We're looking for a logo that has our company name in text and an image that incorporates the text "Life Skills - Social Skills - Soft Skills". The image has to be large enough for the text to be "read-able" instantly.

We have a little over 30 hours left before the deadline and we'd like to encourage you to submit your entries.

Thank you again for some outstanding designs!
