Contest Brief

I am seeking a logo for a technology based self-storage facility. The name of the business is Smart Storage Centre.

The facility is unmanned and the gates and storage units are accessible by bluetooth from your smartphone. I would like the logo to convey the message of this technologically advanced facility.

The company slogan is "Convenience and Security through Technology" - I am not sure if I want the slogan in the logo or not, it would depend on how it could be incorporated I suppose.

Color scheme is as follows:
Blue - primary color, representing security and trust.
Black - secondary color, representing stability and strength.
White - background color, representing cleanliness and safety.

I like the idea of the logo fitting a 1 to 1 ratio for ease of use in social media profile pics, etc but I am flexible if the right design works better without the ratio.

I also prefer a simple, clean design over a complex and busy ones.

I have included a hand drawn conceptual sketch - while I like this idea, I am certainly open to other creative concepts that get my message across to my consumers.

I have also included files that can be used for inspiration based on other logos, clip art, and actual photos of the type of container I will be using on site. (the containers will use roll up doors, not the swinging style).

I will require whatever file types are necessary for my local printers to produce high quality prints. The logo will be used for everything from business cards and website, to t-shirts, and large format printing on billboards.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,
Max

“Sher came up with a unique take on my vision for a logo and ended up winning the logo contest hands down. Once the contest was awarded, Sher worked with me on a couple variations of the logo for some of my marketing material. I was extremely happy with the end result and would not hesitate to recommend Sher to anyone. Thank you for the great logo!”

    Please make sure that you note my comments regarding the use of a visual representation of a storage unit in the logo. I will not select a logo that does not contain this element.

    Also when viewing many of the submissions, there is too much emphasis on the word SMART - I would like the word STORAGE to be at least as prominent as the word smart.

    Please note the branding colors that are listed in the description. There are several entries that are ignoring this and they will not be considered.

    I think that the logo needs to show a storage unit image (similar to something in my submitted images) to clarify that the business is a physical storage facility for belongings. When I view most of the logos submitted so far, they look more like a company that offers digital storage.
