Task Description
Before starting a design please look at this pinterest board so that you can an idea for the style we're after: http://pinterest.com/eliserochelle/logo-inspiration/

We need a logo design for our new website 'Boston Terriers Rock' which is an online community for Boston Terrier owners and fans.

The site also posts regular articles about caring for boston terriers, fun things, products etc.

We are all about finding stylish / chic dog products, natural and eco-friendly food and nutrition, our images have a retro vibe and I'd like that reflected with a bit of fun.

I don't want to have a dog's head in the logo - the focus should be on the name but I'm open to a sketch of a boston terrier as long a it's done in a stylish way not a cartoon and it should not over power the words (it needs to blend more into the background).

The site has a majority female audience but i don't want to exclude males. I don't want anything cutesy.

I really love this image: http://bostonterriersrock.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/boston-terrier-pictures-infamous-dapper-hugo-beast-etsy-DeLaBelle-276x300.jpg

This post includes more imagery down the bottom:

It really sums up the vibe of the site.

I like the look of recycled paper, old school postal stamps (the ink ones not stick on) but these should only be used if it makes sense.

The current website design is a theme and can be changed so don't feel it has to totally conform.

I will need a version of the image with a transparent background though so I can include it on the existing site.

Feel free to get creative and use the above as a guide for the look and feel - it shouldn't be a literal translation.

I've created an inspiration board on pinterest to hopefully give an idea of the style I'm after. It's just inspiration and shouldn't be used literally, it's a guide to help with the brief. http://pinterest.com/eliserochelle/logo-inspiration/

Let me know if you need any clarification of if you have any questions.

  • I would like a scull and bones incorporated with the skull replaced with a Boston terrier head. Please don't use the example pic and keep the retro feel

  • Project Deadline Extended
    Reason: I'm extending the deadline by 2 days as my grandmother passed away and I'm currently interstate and unable to provide feedback to you all. My fav so far is the skull and bones design by g&g followed closely by the retro style logo with the dog doing the rock on sign if that helps. Thank you for your patience

Look and Feel
Each slider illustrates characteristics of the customer's brand and the style your design should communicate.

Must Have:
- I'd like the text to be strong to represent the words but it can be softened and playful with other elements.

The word rock should be the focal point if you want to emphasise one of the words (you can have all words the same if it works better).

I want a retro vibe with a touch of vintage. Think Hipster.

Look at this inspiration board and comments before starting a design: Hi,

Thanks so much for your submission.

You have definitely read the brief and I appreciate that.

I would much prefer to have the sketch as an outline of the dog and not just the head, the whole body. It doesn't have to be a sketch of that pic but it would be much better to the side as per the brief.

I'd prefer the word 'rock' to be a different font and stand out more as it doesn't make sense to emphasis 'Terriers'.

I'd like to have more of a retro vibe, the swirly things around the logo are a bit too much. I also have colour examples on my pinterest board.

A bit cleaner - something you would wear on a t-shirt.

Think hipster.

Here's the board.

You're on the right track!


Thanks for submitting a design. I like that you've tried to incorporate a collar stamp.

You've got the retro part right but it's not quite the feel that I'm after.

I'd like the font to be stronger perhaps with the 'rock' a bit larger and maybe a different font from the other words?

I have example colours on this pinterest board which should help. If it's a badge / stamp style I'd prefer it to be softer so that the name is the focus.

I wouldn't mind having an outline of a boston terrier (sketch) on the side of the logo but not just the head. I'm also happy to leave that out if it doesn't work.

Please check out the board so you have an idea for my taste.

Thank you, you're on the right track. Can't wait to see your next one.


Nice to Have:
- I like the look of recycled paper, old school postal stamps (the ink ones not stick on) but these should only be used if it makes sense.

Should Not Have:
- Dogs head or picture as the focal point. Happy for a subtle sketch to the side or something but not right in the middle.
