Contest Brief

I operate an online content business that centres on filming animals/wildlife. I need a logo.

The logo should incorporate an animal that you have never heard of. It's called a wakeleo. This is an ancient Australian mammal. There is very little visual references to this creature but I will try and help you out.

First of all, here is a link to some info and an artist's interpretation of a wakaleo: [url removed, login to view]

You're not likely to find another reference to this animal however it has a relative that is more popular called Thlylacoleo Carnifex.

You can see interpretations of this animal here [url removed, login to view]

Although I'd prefer it to look more like a wakaleo than a thylacoleo I understand this is an ancient species so I don't mind if you take some artistic license on the look of the animal. I understand this is a carnivorous species but that doesn't mean you have to design it to be snarling or aggressive.

The website this logo will be used for will feature many different species and for the most part will have a positive vibe. In short, it's a celebration of animals, large and small.

Text wise I am looking for 'Wakaleo' or 'Wakaleo animal channel'. Probably leaning towards just the one word at this stage but I'm not certain.

Also open to logos with no text.

I have not pictured in my head what this logo is to look like but if you can show me something I'm sure I will quickly identify what takes my eye.

On a side note, this is a seriously cool animal I hope you enjoy the challenge.

I'll try and give as much feedback to anyone who asks.

Winner will have need to sign a copyright release form for their design.

All the best!

Adam Cox

    #'s 122-125, just added. I thought including a negative splice would tie in well. I think this would look nice on a tshirt as well, didnt have the time to show that.
    Let me know what you think!
    Thanks

    Please let me know what you think of #'s 101 and 102. I set these up to look more like a cable channel logo and I think this is the direction that you wanted this, also spent time recreating the animal from the image you provided. We can alter anything you see here.
    Thanks

      Good job on those as well. I personally think they would be better suited to a children's book than a logo for broadcast. I'm looking at imagery that is easily identifiable so probably not so busy.

      They look good. They're too close to the original character though I'd be done for copyright.

    I know you're fine with a cartoon or a serious/aggressive logo but what do you lean more towards?

      I'm after simplicity but stylish. I'm leaning towards a demographic that's about 60% female, 40% male with an average age of 25 - 55. Probably leaning towards a more professional looking logo. One that you might see a zoo use.

    Some of these entries are looking great. I wouldn't mind seeing one that had a look similar art style to this as well:

      I think I would do something like that but have him with an outfit similar to an explorers outfit. Would take a couple of hours though.

      Watch the spelling on 'Wakaleo'.
      I don't mind the concept, make sure the image is different enough from the art you got it from.

      As for Sohelrana's concern about other freelancer's copying the work, that one is easily solvable as all the entries have their own unique "entry number" they go by. So if anyone does copy his or anyone else's design, it's easily determinable by the same.
      On it, by the way :)
      Kind regards,
      Daniel.
