I need some Graphic Design

Contest Brief

I am a children's author and illustrator that needs a little help with sprucing up a logo design I've created for my series of children's books.

I need the logo to be redesigned graphically so that it is marketable and can be placed on my website, social media pages, and book covers. I would also like the phrase "Daffi and Friends" to be placed somewhere on the logo in a child-friendly, sans-serif font.

I have included some image files of my work to give an idea of what I am looking for and allow some inspiration. The images include the logo I designed and the first cover of my first book.

The winner will win $150 and an excellent referral from me as a thank you for your work and creativity. I simply ask that you be considerate of the color scheme and physical details of the characters as they are an important part of the story, and most importantly, HAVE FUN!

Thank you for your participation and I look forward to seeing all of your entries.

Employer Feedback

“Lily is an excellent graphic artist who successfully created my new logo for my children book series. She was extremely professional, took direction and feedback very well, and was able to create the logo I truly wanted. I look forward to working with her again in the near future, and would highly recommend her expertise to anyone looking to create their logo brand for their business.”

    Wow! These entries are getting better! I do believe I found more than a few that I could definitely use, but I may need to do a poll to make my final decision. I am very happy with I have seen and am very grateful for all the creative work and time you all have taken in order to create a wonderful logo design for my children's book, and I am looking forward to rewarding the winner in the next couple of days! Thanks again so much!!

    Hi Contest Holder, Do you need your logo to be recreated from scratch ?
    Because what I see here, everybody is cutting the picture and just adding the text, thank you

      Hello Hamdi, actually I prefer what is being done, which is taking my originally designed logo and making it more graphically appealing while adding some child -friendly typography.

    Thank you for the submissions. I still haven't found one that is what I am looking for, but the entries are getting better, stronger, and more competitive for my needs. I strongly suggest taking some time to really make it look sharp and make it POP. Play around with different child-friendly fonts and placements of the title. Also, I am not looking for a book cover, so if you send an entry of one, you will be wasting your time. Keep sending your ideas!

      Oh my goodness mam, you are very hard to please. All these designs are mostly wonderful creations. I see a couple of them that I would use as a Author which I am. I see why I do not work for freelancer now because of people like you that take advantage of great artists. This is ridiculous. Also these logos are more worth than only $150, I would say at least $300.

      With all do respect Jokeara, I believe you're wrong. I participated in many contest and this one worth 150 $, believe me. You're right when you said there is couple of great logos. Moreover, I spent some time to create couple of different options. However, there is lot of easy photoshop designs which doesn't worth IMO more than 10$. Just cut the picture and paste typography. Therefore, I think that this contest holder and contest deserves my full attention.

    Please note: 1) The logo is for a children's book brand so it must be Child-Friendly. Please keep it colorful and bright, and 2) The characters' ethnic appearance and certain costume choices are intentional and need to be included in order for the logo to work. To make it easy, use what is already created and enhance it to make it appealing for placing on a variety of sites and the books themselves. Thank you for submitting and I look forward to seeing more your work!

      I added another on, it is basically the same but with a cat added on. The one I just added with the Cat is my favorite. I hope you like it as well. Entry numbers 2,14 and 18 are the ones I created.
