Contest Brief

PROJECT UPDATES:
-LOOK AT REFERENCE/INSPIRATIONAL LOGOS/B.C.'S ON ATTACHED PDF.
- BUSINESS CARD DESIGN IS STILL YET TO BE SUBMITTED!
-WE REALLY NEED TO SEE FONTS THAT ARE NOT SO PLAIN AND NON SERRIF FONTS (SANS SERRIF FONTS ONLY)
-FEEL FREE TO MAKE EDITS TO LOGO I UPLOADED.

Hello All! This is a project where there is currently an existing logo that is roughly 90% what I had asked a previous freelancer for. Thisindividual refused to provide me with text options and I am look for some one who will overall, be a good listener and ASK QUESTIONS related to the client (our needs). Thanks and good luck! ONLY 100% ORIGINAL, NON-FRAUDULENT WORK (by USA standards…) should be submitted as Final design must be copyright/trademark ready.

FURTHER WORK WIL BE NEEDED FROM WINNER!

Based off of the various renditions/iterations I developed myself (attached as PDF) in order to give you all some ideas/concepts RE what we are looking for, however ANY design changes are happily accepted! If you think you can make a logo that is better for our company and branding then PLEASE PROPOSE. Further work and compensation can be discussed if interested!
-In addition I have attached the same logo files that were sent by my last freelancer after he "finished" the project.

We are looking for someone LONG TERM, but starting small…so we are asking for the following:
-Design the "text/font" for our company, product, and DBA.
-Name of Company "APTUS Solutions LLC" (Case Sensitive)
-DBA/other name: "APTUS Solutions" (no LLC)…this "text"will be used as the "official" APTUS Solutions text/font we use.
-Product Text (made from Poly-carb, injection molding): “Currently it is called “APTUS” all caps, however, we are experimenting with the concept name of “APTUSArmor” APTUS Armor” “APTUSarmor” so I would like to see a text we could use for instance when selling our next product “APTUSEncore” (for example). That PDF for reference is entitled “APTUS_Aromor_Logo concepts.

APTUS logo and APTUS armor logo are two TOTALLY different designs I am asking for. If you can only submit 3/4 concepts for text (APTUS, APTUS Solutions, APTUS Solutions LLC, are all MUSTS those who submit the “APTUSarmor” variation ALSO will be given preference in project winner decision!
-Currently our "slogan" is written exactly as: "Laptop. Hard Drive. Harmony." (this should only be included if putting in multiple submissions, as it is less priority than the "main" text (but it would up your chances of winning!)

-"APTUS" (the product) is plastic/polycarbonate so must be a text/font design that is flexible throughout multiple mediums (print, web, Injection molded, to complex, etc).
-We are looking for a clean, sleek, modern design. Something that doesn't clash with current (pre-re-designed) logo, yet maybe a font that softens such a "sharp" logo slightly… JUST A THOUGHT.

DESIGN REQUIREMENTS:
-At least 2 different concepts for APTUS logo re-brand/alteration of current logo
-At least 1 submission of custom text/font (see example font attachment PDF)
-Various different options for TEXT and LOGO placement/interaction, etc. (See PDF, but specifically the “LUNATIK” concept (both lettering and placement)..DO NOT COPY.
-At least one potential business card that is COMPLETELY original
-PLEASE DONT SUBMIT UNORIGINAL LOGO DESIGNS OR FONTS... The attached PDF regarding business cards. PDFs are for inspiration, please do not copy! What I do like about the business cards in the PDF attached is the simplicity yet appearance of the logo and especially the two-sided Color scheme.
-NEED to see ONE example of no gradient. Regardless of design, seeing gradient vs no is a MUST. Thanks.
-As you will see in the PDF's I DO want to see how a "bolder" APTUS Next to a lighter Solutions (see ELEVATIONLAB) example in attached PDF
-Must work in g/s, blk & white, etc as don’t yet know how many different mediums it will be presented on… keep it simple yet creative and please ask me any questions! good luck and have fun!

    All iterations should be submitted at the very least with NON-gradient renditions, and one where the "outline" is not there. NO OUTLINE….Please work out a proper text/font that will be appropriate for our product

    What was wrong with my proposal? When you reject someones work would be nice to let a few words. Not to mention I give you two new proposal for your logo. I think I kinda understand why the other freelancer let you down.

    Thanks for all your work everyone! Great entries so far, but we STILL need to see something that really just WORKS. The text variations (APTUS, APTUSarmor, APTUS Solutions) must all be included, and as separate iterations. Please provide text placement options and REALLY try to develop a perfect, working, Text/Logo variation for "Logo = APTUS"… however I would like to see my text variations separate if you could (APTUS, APTUS Solutions) as well as placement.

    First off. The other freelancer submitted fraudulent work…so that is why he let me down…also, I am not interested in your proposals. The don't look like what I asked for, and I am sorry that you are upset by that. Feel free to re-submit with something more modern, less "dainty"…
