Contest Brief

This is a logo and packaging design for a food product called Alaskan Pancake Cookies - they are little pancakes with maple syrup in the middle when you bite in. There are different kinds of the cookies, so there needs to be space on the logo to label the specific kind - just put "Denali" in that space for now.

I imagine the main colors to be blue and white, but if you come up with something different, it all depends on how it ties together. Perhaps an overall oval shape like the attached Orville logo, except a nice shaded blue. I want a man in the foreground at a 3/4 view looking forward as if off into the sunset that we can't see. In the background are Alaskan mountains. At the bottom of this is some attractive way of displaying the text (attractive, but perhaps rugged?) and I have provided some examples among the attach files. The text would say "Alaskan" on top and under that in the largest font would be "Pancake Cookies" and then under that would be a smaller banner for displaying the type or flavor, such as "Denali" in this case.

VERY IMPORTANT: I have attached files in a ZIP to help give you details needed to do the design how it needs to be, mixed with your own creativity. I will explain why I have attached each file:

[url removed, login to view] - this is the only example I could find that roughly shows the kind of layout I am imagining with a man in the foreground and mountains in the background, however I do not want my logo to just be a simple outline as this one is. I need it to have more details and color

[url removed, login to view] - This is a good example of text presentation and especially the detail and color on the man's face. I have included photos of my father in with this zip file so you can get the details on the man's face correct - but I include this logo as an example of a quality illustrated face and interesting text presentation. I also like the shading in the red - if we can do some blue that has good shading like this, it would look very nice

[url removed, login to view] - This is an example of a man's illustrated face, but I like how the detail is on the Orville logo better. However this is another way of doing it, and it's also good how the whole logo is a semi-circle. I'm not sure if this will work for mine though

[url removed, login to view] - this is an actual picture taken of the Alaska mountains outside my fathers home - I include this file to illustrate how I would like the mountains in the background to look and be shaped and shaded

Scan [url removed, login to view] - This is the most important image of my dad, because it shows the pose and look I need him to have in the logo. You can cut off the illustration below the neck for a headshot and then use the other photos to understand the details of the face that need to be represented in the illustration. An alternative would be to illustrate the entire pose including the horse, but then we would lose facial detail, which I think is important like how it is important in the Orville logo

Scan [url removed, login to view] - Included for facial detail and hair detail only, as are the other images of my dad

If you have any questions please ask and I will respond as quickly as I can. I have a pretty good idea of what I want for the logo, but there is certainly room for your own creativity to fill in missing details.

      A more illustrative look is what I'm looking for after seeing what is possible. Also him in a fishing cap is not the best look.

      Thank you - you did a very good job on this overall, the main issue I see is that he looks too serious, perhaps even a bit mean :) This is true to the picture perhaps, but I think how the other artist interpreted him with a friendly look would work best for a product like cookies

    Iceman the photo of your dad on the horse(scan23) is awesome! Its a pity from a logo standpoint you cant get that kind of detail into it but it would make a fantastic ad.

      Thank you :) Yes I always liked that one - unfortunately the film it was captured on was not as good of quality as today's digital cameras

      Unfortunately all I have is a scan from film, which is the resolution you see. The original film print wasn't very high-res to begin with :)

      The font more reminds me of something Hawaiian. I've seen the word Hawaii printed like this before and it immediately brings beaches to mind. Also, in comparison to the design such as #6 the illustration technique used maintains a high level of detail and looks more like a brand I would see at the grocery store

      Yes I can, but I want to update it publicly as well, so I will keep trying. I changed a few minor, but important details - however the one submission I rated right now has hit many of the elements very well so in some ways it is a better guide than my written description :)

    I am trying to edit the contest description to make it better, but Freelancer is not letting me - the script to update apparently crashes and I am left with a white web browser screen :(

    Hi,I think i have better ideas.Is it mandatory for the logo to contain the human figure?Also as it is a food product shades in blue is not appropriate.Shades in blue goes well with ice creams...Let me know as i feel earth colours are more close to and appealing..Let me know so that i can submit my design...Regards

      Earth colors can work too - the more important element is to get the level of quality of the Orville logo
