Contest Brief

The team and the company:
We are a team of MBA to-be-graduates, who are setting up a company. Our vision is "Help people achieve their desires to enjoy making their own unique things". We develop web site where customers can easily design their own 3D items (e.g. iPhone cover). When they are satisfied with their design, they can purchase it as 3D printed real product. We use 3D printer to fabricate and then deliver it to the customer.

Target customer profile:
mainly 20's to 40's but also teens and 50+
male and female
have some pocket money ($50-100) to spare

Company name:
The name of company is "D3Makers" (without double quotation).
"D3" has double meaning. One is "Three Dimension" as we do business using 3D printer. The other is "Doco Demo Door", an imaginary door which leads to anywhere you wish to go in opening the door.

"Makers" indicate that we are part of the recent Makers movement that we believe people have natural desire to make their own unique things.

Theme:
We'd like simple&bold yet elegant logo/icon design.
Our corporate theme color is green. Logo and icon themselves could be greenish, or they could be colors matching to greenish background.

Requirement:
Icon and logo will be used on web site as well as paper printed items in color and grayscale. Icon (and hopefully logo as well) may be engraved (embossed) to 3D printed objects (i.e. must be simple, bold and have high contrast).

Idea:
One idea of icon design is to take the capital letter "D" and shape it as a door. The letter "3" could be formed to be a door knob? But don't be trapped to it. We welcome wild ideas!

Deliverable:
The contest participant must submit both icon and logo.
The contest winner must submit followings:
Files in format:
Native SVG (Illustrator or Inkscape)
Industry standard SVG for web browser
png
Target icon size (icon only. not including logo):
256x256
128x128
32x32
16x16
Target logo size:
not specified
Color variation:
color version
gray scale version

UPDATE 23-May-2013

Please make logo to read "D3Makers". Not only "Makers".
We'd like the company name to be recognized easily just by logo.

Icon could be located above, below or beside logo. But the icon may be used on its own.

    Thank you very much for another update, rolanduse!
    Could you re-do #168 and #167 with logo read "D3Makers". We are not 3DMakers!
    #167 Could the logo for shadowed version also have shadow and bolder?

      You are so smart, rolandhuse. Among the new series, I like #204 best. Could you move the door a little bit to the left (make left pillar of D a bit narrower while making 3 a bit larger)? 3.5 hours to go!

    Hi Raheelaly. #66 Could you make logo to spell out "D3Makers" rather than only "MAKERS", please? Also could you make a variant that use red circle as door knob?

    #117 : Thank you very much for trying to improve #78 to make D more recognizable. Unfortunately the added crescent seem to have defeated the simplicity and cleanness of #78 . But I love the three variations!

    Hi rolandhuse! We are becoming fan of your simple and clean yet well-thought designs. Our favorite so far are #78 , #119 , #120 and #117.

    #78 and #119 : Could you make version that logo reads "D3Makers" rather than just "makers", please?
    #120 : Could you change the layout of icon and logo similar to #78; icon at top and logo below. Then change logo text to read "D3Makers"?

      Thank you very much for trying very many ideas, promotionalpark! I still like your #17. The logo should spell out "D3Makers" in one line. Icon can be located aside or above like #17. The icon in #48 is good. It's simpler yet looks good. I do like to see new ideas but I find myself tend to score higher if door concept is embraced.
