Contest Brief

*****read the whole brief and public clarification board of this contest***failure to do so will effect your chances of winning******

We just started a new business, Joyride Rentals LLC. We rent offroad adventure motorcycles, provide offroad motorcycle tours, and may expand into mountain bikes in the near future. We operate in remote locations across the USA in AZ, NM, CO, CA, & NV. Our clients enjoy outdoor adventure, aggressive trail riding, camping, exploring, and offroad motorcycle riding of course. These clients are typically males over 35 years old, well educated, upper middle class income, and from western countries (USA, Canada, and Europe). Many are drawn towards motorsports, international travel, and the notion of being explorers themselves. We focus on creating a fun, personal adventure for our clients.

The logo's theme should focus on these elements, but not specifically be a motorcycle or outlines of states for example. This will allow us to expand into mountain biking, jeep rentals, and other things of interest in the future. Make sense? I will be launching a marketing campaign in Germany in the future, so extensive descriptive text should not be intergal to the logo to avoid translation issues. Integrating the name "JoyRide" is okay, but not required. If the company name is integrated, the words "Rentals LLC" must accompany it for legal reasons, but can be a smaller font, etc.

The logo should be suitable for print & web in both color and monochrome at various sizes for use on business cards, stationary, website, tee shirts, hats, and vehicle wrap (to displayed from roughly 1" tall to 24" tall, depending on use).

Contestants shall submit designs in both color and black/white. Winning designer shall provide files in editable photoshop or illustrator CS2 compatible formats along with any special fonts, patterns, or proprietary content needed to reproduce the logo by my local printshop. Winning designer shall additionally provide logo in pdf & jpg formats in a minimum of three resolutions for the uses described. If this contest and my freelancer experience works out, I look forward to using this site for a variety of tasks for my business. Winner may be considered for future graphic design, print, brochure, business card, car wrap, motorcycle graphics (vinyl) and web development work in the immediate future.

I'm looking to develop a lasting relationship with a designer for a variety of marketing needs. If you really want to get in the head of an adventure motorcycle rider, read about the experiences and see pictures of the types of stuff we do... check out the links below for design inspiration and developing the visual vocabulary associated with this activity.

    Wow! There have been some great entries to date. We are one 5 star design away from making this a guaranteed contest! Next week, I will be submitting a poll to my customers to see which design they like best. Do you want your design to be part of the poll? If so, you must submit your best example with four unique looks. #1 will be black and white only(no greyscale), 2d not oblique. #2 will be a full color treatment in 2D, not oblique. #3 is your choice (show it as a 3d rendering or submit alternate color designs). #4 is your choice (show it on a tee shirt, stationary, or whatever you want). I highly recommend that these all be combined on a single image for review. Many to designers here are doing that and it looks great. If you do not follow these directions, my customers may not evaluate your design properly, which would be unfortunate. Good luck to everyone! I'm confident that this contest is generating the new logo for JoyRide afterall!

      And, if it will be more than 4 slides, it's alright or just 4?

      you can have more than 4 slides if you wish. Color treatment... If you choose to design a color logo, be sure to also submit black and white versions. Some people have been heavy on the color, which looks good until it is converted to black and white version. The design must look good in both to be useful.

    Congrats to the designers who have participated so far. Today, we had another design submitted that garnered 5 stars. True to my word, the contest is now guaranteed! To be chosen as the winner, all submissions from this point forward must follow the instructions found in this public clarification board and design brief. Any submission from this point forward that does not provide examples in the format described below will be rejected without explanation. Good luck!

    Things have begun to heat up in this competition. I'm working my way through the latest submissions and leaving comments. Thank you all for your participation. My comments are brief on each submission due to the amount to review. As people submit refinements of previous designs, I'm using the "reject" button to eliminate their past submissions since they are no longer relevant. Please do not take this a bad thing. I am also using the star rating to help me organize the ones I like. 4-5 stars are really good. 2-3 stars have some good elements or are middle of the pack submissions. 1 star or rejected designs are not relevant and should be reworked entirely. Thanks again for your efforts. We are three 5 star designs away from guaranteeing this contest.

    advice to participants... Submit color, black and white, and placement concepts of the logo in one submission, using multiple pages if required. Do not submit the same logo multiple times as separate submissions, this makes it difficult to evaluate and rank. Thanks!

    If you are looking for design cues... Google "KTM 640 Adventure" for images of the bikes we use. Google "Dakar rally motorcycles" for ideas of the excitement our customers crave. Read the trip reports I linked in the design brief.

    Hello Sir, we asked you to make the contest 'guaranteed', so that we can be assured that you will select a design and make the payment. Guaranteed contests receive much better designs from designers than a non-guaranteed contest.
    Hope you will make the contest guaranteed, so that we can send you our concepts to you.

      I debated it but worried that I would just be flooded with entries that lacked anything to do with my business. There are logos featured on the freelancer contest page that are pretty generic clip art and some really good ones, so I wasn't sure what to expect. If I get 5 entries that show real promise by day 7 of this contest, I will change it to guaranteed to make everyone comfortable. That will give one more week for those on the fence and insure that I actually get a usable logo. I lose money on the promotional fees I paid to freelancer, so I'm motivated to choose a logo from this contest rather than repeat the process. Good luck to all those who choose to participate. Create something amazing and perhaps we can work together on business cards, brochures, etc...

    Advice to contestants... Read the design brief in detail. Submissions lacking themes in the brief or simple canned logo designs that have no relevance to the project specification will be rejected without comment at this point. Those that are making an honest submission will receive detailed feedback.

    Guarantee it or no one will spend the time for you to steal a design

      I researched the freelancer policies in regards to guarantees on contests. If someone actually reads the design brief and crafts something appropriate for my type of business, a winner will be chosen and awarded the prize. The winner will likely have a competitive advantage on my brochure, business card, and web site projects to be listed as PROJECTS once a logo is selected in this CONTEST.

    I have updated the design brief with links to some content that will help you understand what adventure motorcycling is all about. The winning design will have digested the design brief and checked out the supplemental links for inspiration. I'm looking for someone who gets it and not a generic corporate design.

    This is my first foray into freelancer. I'll research this "guarantee" thing you are all mentioning. If you are worried about someone stealing a design, I sealed the contest.
