How claire_stokoe started their logo design journey

Summary

We need something fresh, that communicates an eco-friendly/eco-friendly parenting/baby) theme that is a bit quirky, tongue in cheek, funky etc.

We like the idea of incorporating a globe into this logo if possible (this is not a requirement however, just an idea we like) and our new strap line is - taking the 'eek' out of eco-friendly - this should be incorporated into the logo.

There is also the idea of getting baby foot prints into this somehow - with or without the globe - maybe muddy baby footprints/print? Anything that lends the logo a baby/young child association is good as long as it doesn't over-kill in the cutesy department - if that makes sense? If not, please do ask :-D

Or maybe you have a better idea - we're just dying to find out!

NO STOCK PHOTOS PLEASE - ORIGINAL DESIGNS ONLY, THANK YOU

- sorry for 'shouting' but we've had issues with this before and we just wanted to make sure we're all clear from the get go!

We have a site being designed at the moment and a temporary idea of our logo is on there are http://www.minkbaby.com if you fancy taking a look (top left).

Please refer to longer description for further information.

PLEASE NOTE: Once this competition has come to an end we will most likely not be announcing a winner straight away. I think 99designs gives us about a week and so we'll probably take that week to decide what we're doing. In case you were wondering :-D

I have had a few messages suggesting that certain designers are submitting work that is very similar to logos of other companies. that's not good :-(

Please only submit your own work and don't rip of other logos, because the internet is a very small place, really, and chances are you will get found out. It's not worth it. I'm sure this generally goes without saying, and I'm pretty sure that most entrants don't need me to say it, but now I've said it - if you have submitted designs that you shouldn't have submitted, please withdraw them now. Thank you :-D

Company name

MinkBaby

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

We are looking for a logo for a site that is largely dedicated to reviewing eco-friendly/organic products and services for eco-friendly parents and their babies.

We need it to be:

* Slick and Simple

* Easy to read

* Something that instantly communicates the eco-baby angle

* Attractive

* Something that conveys a little humour or at least warmth

Please incorporate the strap line:

taking the 'eek' out of eco-friendly

WHY THE LOGO CHANGE SO SOON?

We loved our original logo, do not doubt it. But we needed to change it. Why?

As we prepared to start trading as an eco-friendly baby shower company, we realised that there were enough people already doing that, each with a small range of different products - often expensive, as eco-options are, and it was hard to work out what to sell/recommend as many of them seemed to promise the same things.

There is a lot of pressure to give our children all things organic and natural - and these things are not cheap - in fact whenever I think of all the eco friendly stuff I 'should' be doing and buying, my first reaction is 'eek!' and my second is to bury my head in the sand. I doubt that I'm alone.

So we wondered - are these eco-friendly products and services any good? What if you want to be eco friendly but also economical? What do you choose to use? What are the alternatives?

And so we decided to continue to offer eco babyshowers and other eco baby celebrations but to make our main emphasis the exploration and evaluation of all eco-baby/eco-parenting products and services by way of news, reviews and general experiementation of the same.

Our new strap line is "taking the eek out of eco-friendly".

THE LOGO - NO MINKS PLEASE!

We are looking for a logo that is pretty slick, that may incorporate a globe (possibly as the 'i' on the word mink - but not necessarily) and we aren't at all bothered about minks - we have been down that road and found that people are confused by all pictures of baby minks, no matter how artful. So no minks please :-D

COLOURS

Colour-wise we are thinking of eco type colours - nice fresh greens, blues, and maybe browns spring to mind, but again, if you have a better idea, ante up!

ETHOS

If you can find a way to make our logo and strap line seem quirky, jaunty but also trustworthy and responsible, that would be extremely useful - you know, the kind of branding that innocent (smoothies, thickies and the like) have is what we are aiming for - that or even better!

IMAGES

Apart from maybe using a globe,  we are quite open to use of images (original images and not stock images please) - we'd like to keep it quite simple on the whole but also to see what ideas you lovely creative types can come up with - we're pretty good at feedback so don't think you'll be designing in a void, far from it. If it seems to fit in with our ethos etc. then chances are, it's a contender.

We took the mink out of our former winning logo design and added our ideas about globes and colours and new strap lines and came up with an idea that we liked and put it on the mock up for our website template (which is not finished yet). You can find our idea here - please take it and make it much better :-D

 If you need more information, please do ask questions!
