My band needs a logo, help me out!

Contest Brief

Hi there freelancers!

I'm looking for someone to help design the logo for my band, Periapsis.

The winner of this contest will have the opportunity to do some further design work for me creating colour versions, T-shirt designs and perhaps even a website among others.

What I'm looking for:
• Something simple but recognisable
• Something mono (for now). Black and white is perfect, though the winner may be asked to elaborate into colour versions later
EDIT: I say mono but there are some great ideas utilising 2 colours which is cool. But what we're looking for is a super simple cut out for now, no shading.
• Ideally something which combines the name of the band with a separate logo (like the Periphery example below).
• Something which reflects our genre: we're making prog rock/metal, so we're looking for something to match, something clean and modern.
• Something which perhaps relates to the definition of our name:
○ Periapsis: (Noun) the point in the path of an orbiting body at which it is nearest to the body that it orbits.

Important Notes:
• The winner will need to provide source drawings in a Photoshop compatible format (ideally PSD).
• The winner will also need to provide any font files used in the logo design.
○ I need full use of the logo once complete so no proprietary fonts!

Examples of logos I like:
• Periphery: [url removed, login to view]
○ I really like that they have created a unique 'P' which is so easily recognisable
• Tool: [url removed, login to view]
○ Love how this logo has plenty of space but forms one continuous image. This image can be both the logo and the name all in one.
• Kanivool: [url removed, login to view]
○ Nothing too crazy here but it's effective none the less.
• Radiohead: [url removed, login to view]
○ Another one with text and a square-sized logo which is easily recognisable.
• Gojira: [url removed, login to view]
○ This one is a little 'scratchy' for our application but I like it none the less
• Caligula's Horse: [url removed, login to view]
○ Love this one, only would like something a bit more legible
• Birds of Tokyo: [url removed, login to view]
○ Simple but effective
• Massive Attack: [url removed, login to view]
○ Again, a bit messy for us but I like it.
• Muse: [url removed, login to view]
○ Simple but effective, name and logo all in one.
• Nine Inch Nails: [url removed, login to view]
○ Love this one as well. Love the random backwards letters

This is my first time using freelancer or anything like it so I hope I'm doing it right! I'm open to any questions or comments.

Thanks :)

    Hi everyone,

    We have picked our winner, or actually winners, 3 in total. Congrats to nestoraraujo for #179, DrewKalinski for #111 & ArthurDemurger for #217.

    I do want to say thank you to every single one of you who participated. The response we received was amazing and the quality of work was very impressive. Many of you created some really impressive designs, but were rejected because it wasn't quite what we were looking for.

    We do feel guilty that so many of you worked so hard and won't get paid for it. We really enjoyed our first Freelancer experience, but wonder if this method is exploitative of you, the freelancers. We hope that all of you whom don't walk away with the award for this job, are able to make a reasonable income using Freelancer on the whole.

    Thanks again everyone!
    Periapsis

    Hi All, just wanted to let you know that the band is considering the options and will come to a decision shortly.

    Thank you so much for sending in so many great submissions. There were dozens of times where hitting that reject button was hard, there was so much great stuff in there. Thanks again!

      straight to the top of the board mate, great stuff!

      would love to see a few other font options if possible, love this one but wonder if it could be just a little less Karnivool

    Hi everyone, 24 hours left to go just wanted to clarify where we're at...

    For starters, thank you everyone. We were really blown away by the mammoth response we got from this & we genuinely feel guilty so many of you will miss out.

    I want to be very clear on what's winning so that everyone still has a chance. We will take up a second design if we love more than one.

    The current competition winners in preference order are...
    #179 - Our favourite thus far. Simple, unique, embracing the theme, awesome use of space, great font (if not a little too much like Karnivool's font) and generally awesome logo
    #111 - Our favourite font so far, tasteful backwards P, another awesome use of space. Logo is cool, but not quite ticking the boxes as nicely as #179
    #145 - This one is so simple but we love that about it, it's still hanging in for the running

    Most of the other designs have now been rejected but a few others still remain because we like them as well.
