Contest Brief

Hi everyone!

I want to give some work for my fellow designer colleagues over here. I am looking for a rebrand of my current logo for CILLYSEN. The current version is attached. I want something minimalistic, let the creativity flow.

You can use the tagline "GRAPHIC DESIGN" or "GRAPHIC DESIGN STUDIO" for the logo too, but it's not a mandatory requirement.

Looking for a minimalist use of a sans serif font, use of shapes. Needs to look professional, with personality, and at the same time elegant and classy.

Other important information:
- Most of my clients call the name "CILLY" instead of "CILLYSEN", so this may be something to consider.
- Black and white version of the color.
- Use of geometric shapes, rather than organic ones.
- Studio oriented to designing branding, ui/ux, motion graphics (among others...).
- Based in Spain - meaning it needs to follow an European/American trend.
- NO ITALIC.
- NO BUSY LOGOS.
- NO OVERUSED LOGO IDEAS.
- NEEDS TO BE ELEGANT, CLASSY, MINIMALIST, AND MODERN.

IMPORTANT: Some other references for inspiration also attached.

Thanks for the reading time!

    This is not to cry at all, just a research...
    Just a question to Alexander: do you use the winning logo somewhere?

      Thanks Alexander, let's wait for your rebranding, so that your logo is used not only in attachment. I'm sure many people here will be highly curious to look at

      Hello again, Sher. Feedback and a review were provided the moment the files were handed over. Freelancer staff can check this.

      The winner might have reviews disabled, or maybe something else went wrong. But there’s no way I would just collect the files and leave without reviewing the amazing work a fellow designer created.

      Have a great day, and please, stop crying - your entries weren’t even a 6/10...

      This is clear why the designer stop working ? is he created profile just for your contest ? he didn't submit any entry to any other contest .
      I am not crying and not even worried as i submitted only one entry and didnot put much efforts ..

    Guys n Gals!
    Please don't cry, it's your own mistakes you did (me too.)
    Here actually were a few bells from the beginning:
    1. Contest Holder didn't awarded a single project during 3 years of his registration
    2. CH order his own logo being a designer himself
    3. CH call you "my fellow designers"
    All these aren't a bad things by itself of course, but combined together should arise some warning.
    So, let's just learn the lesson for our future and won't cry, a lost contest isn't the end of world :)
    P.S.
    withdrawing won't help you in any way, guess why

      Thank you for your advice Alexander, from now I will do my best to improve the quality of my works.

      Please don't be offended, just try to see on this from behind:
      Is it possible that someone registered their account, created their first design, posted it and won the contest within a few hours? Of course, it's possible. But what are the chances of that? Don't you find them ludicrous small, like a Shakespeare's sonnet typed by a chimp?

      Personally, I'm okay with my lost, I just believe that googling for the name after a while, we'll see there exactly this winning design, not some other works from this contest.
      Good luck!

      That's not correct. There's been 994 entries total. I'm really sorry, Sher, but what you're implying is just not nice.

      What do you mean? I already awarded a winner, and I'm planning on utilizing his logo. However, if I decide to use other designs, I'm still in time to make an offer, I believe.

    Please, don't duplicate entries. Try to avoid 3D mockups (send plain version of the logo). Still looking for that perfect piece.
