Design a Logo for PODDVR.com

Contest Brief

Fun but easy-to-read logo with the name "poddvr", as in POD(cast) DVR... a specialized mp3 player app. I'm open to how it's presented... PODdvr or podDVR or whatever... but would like the design to somehow make it CLEAR that there are 2 D's in the name. It would be nice to have a little more art than just the letters... maybe work in a small ipod and/or earbuds? But just the letters is OK if they are stylized in a way that grabs your attention.

I would probably like to stick with primary colors or a complementary palette that catches the eye... don't want anything too gaudy or garish.

Also, I want the ORIGINAL ART file (and font names used) so I can adapt the logo in the future if needed. I want the LAYERED file, Photoshop .psd or Fireworks .png would be preferable.

      Indeed. I was impressed with the quality of the entries. Many COULD have worked but, as always, it's about more than just the art... it's a marketing message and it has to be right for the product.

      Best wishes to you all.

    Look folks, I cannot comment on every single entry... there are too many and I have a busy schedule.

    blueconcepts, you are undoubtedly a talented guy and can put out a wide range of designs. If I was launching a clothing company for the younger crowd, I could see your style doing great! I mean it. Despite good work and many tries, none seemed to fit time.

    Others asking for feedback... how about reading my previous posts? Many have not even noted the colors were decided. I even gave some directions (which a few took, to be sure!) but a lot ignored. Obviously if I liked a design, I could get the colors changed... but why not start out on the right foot?

    Props to blueconcepts for the VARIETY of designs, if nothing else. Most of them look great but, unfortunately, I don't feel are best for this project... but I TRULY APPLAUD the effort and creativity.

    Many others here have also done a great job, I'm just noting the outstanding quantity of DIFFERENT ones... and the willingness to "step out there" a little bit.

    PART 3

    Visually, I lean to the simpler design... I want it to be recognizable AND READABLE. No puzzling out what the spelling is of the semi-hidden letters folded into one another. That's why #98 is leading this contest SO FAR. Maher has done nice work with that and, to win, you will have to come up with either...

    1. A better "clean" design. Simple, almost plain, pure. Unambiguous.
    2. A superior ALTERNATIVE design... in other words, something that beats the "clean" design itself. Something that just GRABS you visually.

    PART 4

    #81 - two good things here:
    -- the hand touching the button sort of calls for action, which is great, but I think the POD part is too busy for this logo and the O becomes washed out and makes pod hard to read. And I've seen it before. Sorry, this side of the logo won't work.

    -- BUT, my eye DOES get drawn to the DVR part... probably because of the reverse background. It DOES remind you of a DVR, though, so there may be some creative possibilities here, a small study of contrasts. The letters are not right, though, and should be more distinct. Perhaps if someone comes up with a better design going in this direction, it might stand a chance of overturning the "cleaner" approach.

    Thank you all for your time and efforts. Be well.

    PART 2

    - I like the idea of bring some extra "art" into the logo, but it would have to just work. Though I don't think these are right for this logo, I DO LIKE (and appreciate) the creativity of:
    #25 - those red buds stand out
    #44 and #75 - headphones... we saw a lot of these and I've seen it work in other logos but none here so far.
    #88 and #102 - I'm weighing the DVR fonts... sort of like these because they make the R stand out.
    #110 - bringing the D's together and adding the smile is nice. Not right for this particular logo, though. sorry.

    PART 1.

    OK, since we're on the downhill side now, here's a little recap. I appreciate all the effort. There were many rejected which were actually fine but just "not quite right" for this project. The beauty of crowd sourcing is the variety of design, so thank you all for that.

    - #98 is my favorite so far and I've asked for a couple small changes to the original before arriving at this point.
    - The colors WILL be purple and green, but I'm undecided about which parts should be what color.
    - Several have integrated a DVR button symbol (Stop, Play, Pause) into the logo and I like that very much.
    - I am still not 100% convinced on fonts. I want it clean but distinct/bold, and I'm thinking pod and dvr should not be the same.

    folks... I DO appreciate your efforts and am impressed with a lot of the work. There is NO NEED to ask be me review a particular submission UNLESS you have something specific to say about it. I promise...

    I WILL look at all submissions. This contest has a few days to go and I fully intend to provide feedback regularly until it is over, and the winner will receive the money.

    One last thing. I'm not sure if it's in the description (I'll revise it, if not) but I want the ORIGINAL ART files (and font names used) so I can adapt the logo in the future if needed. I want the LAYERED file, Photoshop .psd or Fireworks .png would be preferable.

    Thanks again!

    A lot of good efforts, thanks! Here is some feedback:

    I definitely like the "play" button in #11 and, though the font is not quite right, it has the best look so far.

      Thanks again - yes, I'll try that.
      The only reason I have connected the 2 D's is because I tried to have that 3 Dimensional feel between them, as the lowercase d is a shadow of Uppercase D.
      I'll work the DVR more show you a digital font.
      Regarding to the colors do you like them so far? Or you want me to try another palette?
