We have an existing design, and the winning logo should be ready to drop right into the existing site.
Again for your reference, the site is at: http://www.psdcutups.com/
Clearly, light logos will work best on our dark header, but may not be best for letterhead. Therefore, submissions that include a light on dark AND dark on light version will likely have a better chance.
We are also looking for a logo that has some element that can easily be used in a small icon/avatar/gravatar and email signature.
The logo needs to be polished and high quality, in order to communicate that we are serious and reputable. The audience is design-oriented, so have fun with it, but know that they can smell a bad design from a mile away.
We love logos that are suggestive without being super obvious, or that make creative use of lettering to convey the idea. Of course, with "PSD Cut-Ups" that is a challenge (and not required), but here are some examples of what we mean:
P.S. - As the subtitle states, due to the industry we are in we often run into clients with design needs. Excellent designers may be met with additional opportunities and project referrals down the road!
