Design a Logo for Ecommerce Site

Contest Brief

I need a logo for a new ecommerce site I am building. The registered domain is www.liquidatewarehouse.com. I am open to anything creative. It must have the text liquidatewarehouse in it ("liquidate" and "warehouse" should be differentiated in some way) as it will be placed in the upper left corner of the site. I want the shopper to think great deals and variety when they see it. Incorporating a shopping cart, price tag, or roof (because of warehouse) would be interesting. I operate out of a warehouse so I would somehow like to capture the theme of liquidation, overstock, and clearance deals in the logo if possible. I am looking for something very creative and savoy. Think Amazon's arrow/smile pointing from A to Z or Fed Ex's logo that uses negative space to show an arrow between the letters "E" and "X". The site will sell pretty much everything. The color scheme of the site will likely be either blue/silver or mint green. The logo doesn't have to be these colors necessarily but it should at least go with these colors well. Think web 2.0 style logos. 60 dollars to the winner....with possible bonuses if extra creative. Must provide in vector format and the logo must be 100% original.

      different positioning and fonts :
      #227 , #228 , #228
      I drop the shopping cart idea as it it too much clicked...that is too common on the web

    explore similar creative concepts like that which is used in 154. we like the uniqueness. we are looking for something more graphically enhanced than 154.

    a few more suggestions for potential improvements to already great logos:

    1. try incorporating an arrow somewhere in the logo..maybe on one of the ends of the cart or on one of the letters.
    2. try to find a great font that differentiates the logo from others.
    3. try adding .com to a few versions to see how that might look
    4. maybe try a small price tag attached to an element in the logo (this may be too much..not sure)

    thanks

    from here out 5 stars means you are in the finals. new entries should use the current 5 star entries for inspiration. think brand potential, light and fun design, rounded font/easy on the eyes, and be creative. Similar to how Amazon uses their smile/arrow in their icon which points from A to Z, this is the type of creativity we are looking for. Think subtle creativity. thanks

    #146 is the one to beat. think brandable and creative. We love how the logo alone in #146 is enough with the "L" and "W" hidden inside.

    Thanks for the great work thus far. Here is where the competition stands to date:

    #137 - first place, please experiment some more with your cart icon and try replacement the W in warehouse with the icon to see how that works. also see if you can make your cart icon a little lighter and more fun.

    #111 - second place, please work on your icon to see if you can come up with a more brandable icon.

    #137 and #111 are top two due to their brand potential of the icons they have used. We would like to see a brand potential icon in all future entries. Think light and fun "I want to buy" type of icons but also be creative. Try to keep corners rounded and easy on the eyes.

    #123 is using our favorite font.

    Thank for the new entries. They are getting very close!

    #136 I like the idea. You can leave it like it is and maybe try some new icon ideas that have nothing to do with this one if you wish.

    #123 I really like that font. I would still like to see something other than the house if you dont mind.

    #56 You still hold the lead concerning branding worthy icon. We are still eagerly awaiting refinement. Particularly how the car would look as the "W" in warehouse.

    Please try and focus on more rounded looks like most of the top rated.

    Thanks for the new entries!

    #111 I like the bag idea. You seem to be looking for a banding worthy icon which is great. If you dont mind I'd like you to continue to refine your ideas.

    #109 This is a better direction. But it is overall still a but hard. Would you mind trying something more rounded? Including the font.

    #108 You are on point with look and feel. I would love to see more icon ideas that move away from the warehouse. Maybe in the direction of cart or tag. Maybe a font a bit bolder and rounded.

    #56 You still hold the lead concerning branding worthy icon. We are still eagerly awaiting refinement.

    First of all I'd like to say thanks for all your great ideas. We really appreciate the work you've put into this. After reviewing the current logo ideas with my partner, we'd like to update you on our current status and since we know many of you have done many versions and revisions, we'd like to raise the prize money to $100.

    We reset the ratings in order to give you a better guide.

    * Any design with a star shows talent we believe should continue to try. We like your skills but your logo isn't meeting our requirements.
    ** Two stars mean you're on to something, keep going. Try different variations of what you have and throw in something new.
    *** Anything over ** means we actually see ourselves branded with your idea, whereby three is just not quite there yet.
    **** You're almost there, focus on what you have and try to make it better.
    ***** You are in the finals.

    Some guidelines

    We really prefer the single line ideas. At least not taking up much vertical space. We also need each new design to include a monochrome watermark as seen in the top left of #49 and bottom right of #86. Please try consider a look not too serious. eCommerce logos are generally a mixture of light-footed/playful and simplistic/minimalistic.

    #38 I really like this. My only concern is that it may be too high. Maybe you can try different things with the tag size, placement and or angle?

    #56 I really like that cart. In fact, it is this kind of branding we are looking for. But it seems inconsistent with the rest. The font is way off topic. Please check our other top rated to get feel what we're looking for font wise. I also suggest mirroring the cart and we believe it would look great in the center replacing the W in warehouse.

    #95 I like the light-footed feel and colors. Only the cart breaks the rounded look of your font.

    #53 This is nice. We like the cart and your choice of color. Only it seems a bit on the serious side. Although we don't agree with the wallet on #49, we couldn't help but notice how its rounded corners appealed to the eye and relaxes the design as a whole.

      #90, #57 Nice ideas we like the direction, just not quite there yet.

      #75 This is the format we are looking for. Look at our other top ranked to get an idea of the feel we're looking for.

      #48 I really like your style, look and feel. Our concern is that theres too much roof. We prefer the one line formats of the top rated.

      #86 I also like your style. Please consider the one line format and see what you come up with.

    My favorites so far are:
    Favorite logos so far: 45,43,36,35,
    Favorite fonts: 15,16,34,45

    I am leaning towards single line logos over multi line. a multi line could work as long as its not too high. Im still looking for a primarily text based logo with a creative shopping cart incorporated into the text somehow. I like the idea of #24 but its not quite there. thanks

      I really like the direction of #51. Single line and the L cart is a good touch. The other graphics make the logo a little too busy. I like the creative text based style.
