Contest Brief

Attached file contains existing logo.
Please keep substantially to this design to both save your time and because we like the existing concept and want to stay close to it.
We are primarily trying to get a print quality version of this logo.

Desired format: TIFF
Color System: CMYK
Compression: None or lossless
Two versions, color and black and white desired.

we are looking to use these for brochures, so high resolution (at least 300dpi) is needed.

1. Retirement REALITYTM Logo
Blocks Color: Pantone Reflex Blue (or slight variation)
C:85, M:85, Y:0, K:41
Alternate: Black (for use with black & white printing)
Letters: White (or slight variation)
Font: Discretion of designer.
Size: the largest size required would be that which is shown below. (approx. 5” wide x 2.5” tall)
The idea is to communicate that an individual or married couple needs to base their retirement (as it pertains to finances) on the economic realities that they face. So, “reality” becomes the foundation on which they build their retirement. Using blocks is one way to imply a strong foundation. The actual fonts used for either “Retirement” or “REALITY” are open to suggestion from the designer, as is the line spacing. Although it may be done differently, some sort of highlighting, embossing, or shadows may be used to enhance the appearance of the blocks, and the letters on them.

    Thank you all for your participation, we are very grateful for the many, many great ideas sent in. It was not easy to pick. We had three contests and our top two guys in the company took over 2.5 hours going through each entry and picking the winners! Those that gave us 'out of the box concepts', while our conservative client base is not likely to go for them all we can say is "Wow!" what great ideas!
    Cheers

      HI, we think the black is too overpowering on the 'reality' word.

      HI, 62, really had more emphasis on retirement, we were looking for the 'reality' word to be emphasized. Cannot comment on 63 as it does not show up in my viewer. Guessing bug in sorting on freelancer.com

    Rossm289, first off I want to thank you for being so timely with ratings/feedback. I was wondering if there was anything specifically you'd like to see in a revision of one of my entries, or if I should stop spamming you at this point. ;)

    Thank you though, good to see an involved contest holder.

      HI seraphcah, I did not see this until just now. We are about to go around the building having the 2-3 decision makers look at all the entries. I do appreciate your postings.

    Some thoughts from reviewers so far. Less emphasis on the word retirement, and more emphasis on the word reality is our feedback to all entries in general

    Logo word Reality, we are looking for something that conveys 'blocks' or a 'foundation' that retirement is sitting on (like our example file)
