Logo Design Contest Rules
In a design contest, designers from all over the world can pitch multiple ideas for a logo. I would give feedback and in the end select the perfect logo from the finalists.
From colors to distinctiveness and scalability, artists can help create my logo which should be unique and differentiate Pushing Back the Darkness from other companies.
I don’t need to represent every aspect of my brand within the logo itself. The bigger branding campaign, collateral, messaging, advertising, that can all be done as part of the system. The logo should be as refined, simple, clean, minimal as possible.
