Charmaine & Kelvin
Due to the overwhelming response, I will also be offering second and third place prizes. Thank you!
This contest is to design a logo to be used for our wedding. The logo should reflect who we are as a couple. We want a logo that is fun yet elegant to set the tone for our wedding. Depending on the submissions, there may be follow-on work to design all the wedding stationary. Thank you and I look forward to your submissions.
Name: Charmaine and Kelvin
Wedding Date: September 3, 2011
Wedding Colors: White, Silver, Black, Magenta or Pink
Bride: Petite, skinny, long straight brown hair with long side layers and no bangs, chinese
Groom: Short spikey black hair, strong square jaw line, chinese
We both love animals and own two dogs (Maltese – long white hair) and two cats (bengal and persian). See attachments below.
The guests of our wedding.
Usage: The logo will be used on all printed and web elements for our wedding including the website, invitations, wedding favors, programs and escort cards ... heck .. even the bottom of my shoes.
Since the logo will be used for a variety of printed items, it needs to really stand on its own yet be easily incorporated with various design elements.
1 - Names with illustraiton
2 - Names with illustration and wedding date
3 - Just illustration
4 - Monogram
Logo Ideas: Attached some ideas but we don't love any of them
1 - Text of our names with a pair of characters (probably silhouettes). Characters can be a bride & groom, dog & cat. On reflection - the dog & cat might look a little silly but perhaps if done right ...
2 – Initials of our names (C and K) made into a bride and groom as illustrations
3 - Text of our names accompanied by a simple illustration like a swigle, wave, flower, or butterfly.
4 - Monogram with our initals
Logo Type: Typography with custom art work (character or illustration). The logo illustration should also be able to standalone without text.
Typography: I like fat round or fun or cartoon like fonts - I like sans serif fonts better. Please no difficult to read cursive fonts.
Required Text: Logo must have either our full first names or initials. Optional to include our wedding date but a version without the wedding date is also required.
Style: Fun and cute yet elegant. Clean. We aren't looking for something cheesy. Remember the logo will be used on a number of print formats so it should be relatively simple and easy to reproduce in limited colors and materials.
Colors: Logos can reflect our wedding theme colors (white, silver, black, pink) but this is not required. Ideally, the logo should be no more than 4 colors - 1 or 2 colors preferred.
Inspirational Graphics: See attachment.
Clean lines and really simple graphics.
Format: Vector Graphic
