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!

    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!

    open the winning entry you will see this message :
    " Entry #973 of 973
    See all entries from Luke V."""
    Anyways its our right to raise voice if we have doubt about the contest .
    I talked to freelancer staff and they said they will verify the both account identity and the winner cannot withdraw funds during 14 days security period.

    one thing is clear , The winner created his account today (1 hour before contest winner selection) Then how can he find this contest? this contest is 5+ days old and not available on search contests first page .

      Yeah, for sure! Of course you have the rights. I'm just telling you you're wasting your time. I can't wait for the support/staff team to check on this, because I know you're not right. You can't always cry and complain just because you did not get picked as a winner.

      And in regards on how he found the contest. I have no clue about that, but the browsing tools are quite powerful nowadays...

      You and some other people didn't make this an enjoyable experience at all. I've spent hours, and days reviewing and rating everyone's entries, and just because you didn't get selected, you start accusing someone of cheating, or doing a different account...

      You should really focus on improving the quality of your entries next time.

      Anyways, good luck in the future, Sher.

      PS.: Any other questions (or complaints), please, do not hesitate to ask.

      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.

    Hello dear , Something is not right . The winner created his account 1 hour ago and he is submitted the last entry on contest before contest time deadline . .
    This seems to be your own person or may be your 2nd account , I am going to talk with freelancer staff to verify the identity of both accounts and check the contest where you received 900+ entries where everyone worked so hard , Bu the final selection is the logo which is submitted by a newly created account in a last minute . Its fraud with all hard-workers , Thank you

      Hello, sorry about this. How should I know when people creates the account? I paid for the contest to be sealed and featured, so the money is clearly not an issue.

      I am sorry you didn't make the cut. Better luck next time.

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