Task Description
I need a logo design for a cutting-edge live kids show. What we need is a logo that screams FUN!! for these kids. I'm looking for something bold, colorful, and kid friendly. The name of the show will be "iKids." The temptation here would be to heavily draw from Apple for this design. A little influence would be just fine(not neccesary and possibly counter-productive) but not too much because copyrights could be a big problem.

Also, the designer that wins this project will likely be offered more jobs later on for brochures, flyers, tshirts, banners etc. These will be guaranteed jobs and not just "contests".

Lastly, I appreciate visibility so lets make it hard to miss! Good luck and have fun with it!

Updates
  • Greetings everyone!

    Hey I just wanted to give you and update.  A designer brought to my attention that the word "program" could have multiple meanings.  It could mean for instance, "computer program" or "show". 

    If this has confused you as well I would like to apologize.  When I say a kids program what I mean is a "live kids show."  BTW the designs I have received so far have been great.  Keep it up!

  • Good Morning!



    So far, I have received several designs and some good feedback from designers.  Thank you all for your hard work.  After talking with a couple designers, some have expressed the need for a clearer vision of what I am looking for. 

    What I have done is I have added a file to my original brief with several logos I quickly googled.  These logo's have the "boldness" factor that I am going for.  "hero headquarters" particularly stands out to me because of the texturing on the letters.  I also like how some of them have some sort of graphic behind the letters.  Anyway, I hope that helps and don't hesitate let me know if their is anything I can do to make it easier for you.

  • Good Morning Again!

    I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who have submitted designs.  I have been really impressed with the level of work I have received and feel very fortunate to have so many designers putting in solid work.  Thank you.

    Also, after talking with designers I have come to realize some additional information that could help us work together more effectively.  One trend I have noticed in the designs is that many of them lean towards the younger side of the 6 -12 age range I am looking to hit.  Unfortunately, older kids are easily turned off to something they find to "kiddie" whereas younger kids don't mind (many times admire) something that looks slightly older than they are. 

    As you are creating or tweaking your designs ask yourself if a 10 - 12 year old boy would want to see this.  If they would, you're definetly moving in the right direction.  Thanks again everybody!

  • Greeting Everyone!

    I have been thrilled with the quality of the designs I have received so far.  It has been great to see the diverse amount of talent that you all have.For the most part, you all have been good about finding the boldness factor I have been talking about.  Thank you. 



    Now that I have seen more designs, I am beginning to realize that what would take a logo for this show to the next level is having a modern/futuristic feel.  The "i" in the design is suppossed to represent the idea of cutting edge, next generation kids entertainment.  If you have any ideas along that theme, I would love to see them!  Thanks so much!

Requirements
Must Have:
- Boldness: see the file and the bottom of the brief for examples I've googled that have the "boldness" factor I am looking for.

Nice to Have:
- Maybe some sort of design behind the text.(not necessary)

Should Not Have:
- Nothing "girly" Also, keep in mind that I want parents to feel comfortable with the program. Also, the words should not be basic text. Nothing too "kiddie". 10 - 12 year old boys should want to see this.

I am more of a macro-manager type. I know you will do a better job than I ever would. With that said, I wouldn't rule out a mascot. If you have a great idea...go with it. However, I just don't want the cheesy "kids smiling in the background" thing. Make it cool. Thanks so much for asking.

Thank you so much. As far as a website goes, I have one for a different company and the style wasn't my choice unlike this logo so I don't want to give it to you to lead you in the wrong style. However, I appreciate you asking.

Hi. I'd like to say thanks very much for the project invite. It's the most polite one I've had to date.

I've submitted an initial concept for you. If you could let me know your thoughts on whether we could take this design further, I'd very much appreciate it.

Thanks

I'm sorry Tracy. I could have worded that better couldn't I? When I say kids "program" what I mean is a "live kids show." I'm sorry for the confusion. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
By Project Owner on Tuesday, September 27, 2011 | Reply
Thanks for explaining!
It is very different to design something for lets say....
computer program vs. a live show or program!
Thank you very much for your time and response.
Best. T.

im a bit slow - is this for a TV kids program?
By inspiral on Tuesday, October 4, 2011 | Reply
No...this is a live kids entertainment show. Years ago Nickelodean used to have a live kids show that they would travel around to State Fairs and such performing for kids. Similar concept.
