This job is a test job. There will be hourly paid design work for good illustrators. Our deadline is very tight (we need designs as soon as you can provide them). You will be evaluated on this as well as how well you can follow instructions and the sophistication of your designs.
Design a Logo for MarketSeal.com (new website, not currently up).
Note for those with limited English, "Seal" means: 1. close or contract a negotiation or job, 2. stamp to close a letter, 3. aquatic animal who lives in the Arctics.
This site will sell SEO and sales training, just to give you an idea of mood.
Have a look at like-the-look-of-this and like-the-look-of-this-too
We like the style of these illustrations. We also like the wood cut look: http://customvinyllettering.net/decals/illustrations/animals-fish-2/ and want to combine these styles in a finished look, for a logo that is black and white, very clean and somewhat minimalistic.
We're looking for a design with the same layout as top-dog-seal, that is round and shaped like a seal (stamp) with the word "Market" across the lower part (where "top dog" is). On the upper portion is a seal (animal) holding a globe, that protrudes up, exceeding the upper border of the seal (stamp). The globe will have the letters WWW on it. We have attached two photos of seals. We would like to have the seal in profile as in seal-in-profile, but we don't like the fins of seal-in-profile. We'd like them to be flat as in magestic-seal. Also, we don't like the look of seal-in-profile (it's not simple or clean; we only selected it for the way we like the head lain out). Also, we want to see the eyes of the creature.
Whether or not you want to make the seal look playful, somewhat cartoony, or more dry and professional, is up to you. You might send us a couple different looks.
Illustrations must be submitted in editable vector graphics.
We want only 100 percent original designs, no clip art collages will be accepted.
For those hired, I am available for a visual demonstration on Skype if you need help understanding these instructions.
