I’ve stumbled across a great website, it’s called Worth1000.
It’s a neat little website for photoshop/illustrator lovers. It has quite a community behind it offering tutorials for beginners, photoshop contests, and the best bit, advanced contests in which clients can open a competition with a cash reward for the best logo that they can use for their company.
I looked at a few of the finished contests to see what level of skill was put into the outcome and thought I would give it a go. So I tried out for a logo contest offering $1000 for the chosen logo.
The company was called GridIron Systems Inc. A company all about accelerated data transfer speeds and external storage. They’ve specified certain mandatories such as number of colours, what words much be included etc.
Voting starts in 7 days. Here’s my entry with variants. A bold, yet simplistic logo combining the strength and speed of the cheetah into the professionalism of a trust worthy business.
Also works well with a black background.
