Contest Brief

Design a brand logo for a very popular niche video licensing website. [url removed, login to view] will become the hub for amazing videos worldwide.

The designed logo must include app icons to allow for seamless transition through all platforms. The logo must contain the phrase CAUGHT ON TAPE TV and we prefer you use CAPITAL LETTERS; the dot may be incorporated in the logo if used in a creative fashion. Main colors should be red white and black. Winning designs MUST include vector files.

Creating a successful brand ISOTYPE/SYMBOL with the logo is required, try a variation of the letters COT for the isotype/symbol using a camera or lens or an eye to signify Big Brother or surveillance OR SOMETHING OUT OF THE BOX CREATIVE! We also like the idea of using an ominous looking hovering SPHERE, so if you are able to successfully create a good one in an isotype/symbol, rest assured we will be interested. We wouldn't mind maybe bringing it ALIVE in the future. Use your ingenious imagination...

The logo must be FUTURISTIC, TIMELESS & NEVER ENDING, with a digital twist.
We would like that you stress the .TV in the logo which will become our brand.

DO NOT use old cameras, old photography or old technology.

INVENT your own technology. Maybe STEAMPUNK?!?! We don't know, but surely will when we see it! -- You're the artist start artisticating! ;)

NOTE: This Isotype/symbol will be used as a WATERMARK on EVERY VIDEO on our website and WORLDWIDE to represent CAUGHT ON TAPE TV. When someone sees it they should know it means CAUGHT ON TAPE TV. So be smart and plan accordingly.

Also our tagline is: YOUR WORLD UNSCRIPTED ... use it somehow in the logo.

This logo design must be custom created from scratch with and PLEASE, NO EXTERNAL CLIP-ART GRAPHICS.

The most creative entry will be awarded the prize. IF MORE THAN ONE IS CHOSEN, then each will get the same total prize amount.

DO's and DON'Ts

DO use ALL CAPS.
DO use Red, Black and White colors in the logo text
DO make .TV LARGE/BIG, make it our brand - brand it!
DO make CAUGHT and TAPE same color ... and ON and TV same color.
DO use YOUR WORLD UNSCRIPTED at bottom or somewhere ingenious.
DO use COT for the isotype/symbol/graphic design.
DO use FUTURISTIC Theme.
DO use DIGITAL theme.
DO create a timeless logo that can withstand the ages.
Do invent a brand, a signature and bring it to life!

DON'T use Green, Orange, light blue or yellow letters in the title.
DON'T use lowercase letters.
DON'T use CLIPART or borrow graphics from anywhere.
DON'T use OLD Cameras and OLD Photography or video recording equipment.
DON'T use outdated technology like old TV's, antennas, reels, tape, VHS.

Need be able to be used on:

Websites
Business Cards
Huge Banners
Mobile Icon Compatible
Facebook/Twitter Ready

Hopefully the small prize will lure you to share your genius in design and give you the prestige of knowing that you designed the WINNING logo for a soon to be BILLION dollar company. That's when your life changes, all for a mere contest. Don't pass us up, the winner will also be in close contact with us for future projects with our growing company.

ATTACHED IS our original logo for reference only and not as a guide for design.

NOTE: Current website will be COMPLETELY redesigned within a month so please DO NOT make logo according to it.

HERE'S AN IDEA OF HOW WE RATE YOUR SUBMISSIONS:

* We will not give one star, you work too hard and your designs do not deserve one star.

** We are not interested in this design concept.

*** We do not like isotype design concept, but like something else in the logo, like font or shape, etc...

**** We really like the isotype and font and would love to see other variations of the same design.

***** A compete design in consideration for the top prize. (NOTE: All complete designs being considered will have 5 stars)

If we see an ingenious design we will STOP this contest and award immediately.

Thank you for your time and GOOD LUCK!

      Sorry h3nryjacks0n but they extended it for 10 more days because of the problems and I messaged you a few time with no response, but it came down to no one else having any more ideas and they all pretty much gave up in the end. Every other week we would get 50+ NEW designs on the last day. This time we got 3 new designs. finis! :)

    LET"S GO DESIGNERS! We're almost there. It looks like a few designers have become intimidated by new designs and concepts being brought out on the final or last days of the contest... EVERY TIME... BUT why wait for the last day? Then we are flooded with so many new designs and we are forced to EXTEND. Let's NOT extend anymore WIN THIS NOW! Make your tweaks and submissions now and we can be certain to close this contest sooner than later. OUR NEW WEBSITE is currently being built so we must finalize this logo and move on to our next adventure. Good Luck! - CAUGHT ON TAPE TV, LLC.

    Due to the amount of designs that came crashing in on the LAST DAY, we have again decided to EXTEND this contest to allow other designers a fair chance to respond respectively with their own designs. We have waited a while, but are finally receiving attention for more and more designers who are seeing this contest for the first time. Because of this, we continue to receive NEW ideas from other talented designers who have different visions and experiences. Again we THANK YOU for continuing to post in our contest. If you survive and win in the end you will have won more that just a cash prize, but instead begin a legacy from BRANDING a soon to be worldwide TV, MOVIE and FILM broadcasting entity CAUGHT ON TAPE TV... Good Luck!
