Logo Contest Announcement

Posted on October 11, 2004 by Jon Bach

After a long and grueling meeting to judge our logo contest entries, we regret to accounce that we did not receive a submission that would would like to choose as the next logo for Puget Custom Computers. However, there are 8 finalists whose creativity intrigued us. These 8 individuals will be contacted in the next 48 hours, and will be given an opportunity to revise and improve their design. Hopefully with some improvements, we can announce a winner for our contest!

Make no mistake -- we received a lot of excellent entries and designs! That fact that our meeting was 7 hours long is testament to the difficult decision we had to make! We simply did not find logo we were looking for -- one that accurately reflected our business sytle and identity. This is why we are choosing to give our top entries another chance -- we want to work with the designers a bit more to find that perfect logo!

Will the 8 almost good enough logos be posted here, or will we not see any but the final logo? I'd like to see top ones, it would be interesting to see what makes a good professional logo :)

I agree! I will ask, and we will post them if the author gives us permission to do so.

OK, here they are! As soon as a finalist gives me permission, I will post his/her logo to this thread.

You may have noticed that it has been quite some time since we have posted any news about the logo contest. I am writing now with the unfortunate news that we will not be able to award a winner to this contest. We had a lot of great submissions, but none of them were the match we were looking for. We worked quite closely with a few finalists, and they have been fairly compensated for the extra time they put in, but after over a month with nearly no progress, we decided to cut our losses and bring the contest to an end. Thanks for waitng -- it took us this long to come to this decision because we *really* wanted to be able to announce a winner (and we really wanted a logo too!).

Thank you, everyone, for your submissions!

I just wanted to say that, as per the contest rules, we wont be using any of the logos submitted in any way. All ownership of the logos still belong to the designers, and we really do appreciate their submissions and hard work.

Many of the designs were top notch, it's just that none of them captured the spirit of what we wanted for a new image. Hopefully we find something we like in the future. Thanks for all the hard work, and great submissions.
