Please read entire brief carefully - please only bid on project if you can meet all of our requirements. Please be sure to check the image file attached.
Need a logo designed for our American Law Enforcement Apparel/Product business (t-shirts, hoodies, hats, Thin Blue Line products). We currently have a logo in use (https://teespring.com/stores/blue-sentinel-gear) but it doesn't convey who we are or what we do or offer. The Greek/Roman/Spartan Helmet & Sword logos have been done to death and we need something fresh that has impact. We do NOT want generic/stock/template/over-used logos - we ARE looking for something original that will separate us from the pack and make us stand out.
As 91% of our customer base is located in the United States, the person we hire should be U.S. based & someone who understands American Law Enforcement, the images/concepts that resonate with them (U.S. Law Enforcement Officers and civilian supporters) and how those images/concepts relate back to our company name (Blue Sentinel Gear).
What we can provide:
The values we want to communicate, the feelings to transmit & the market of reference.
We can tell you what we want the logo to portray and the feeling it should inspire in our customer base but we DON'T have a base idea for the actual design. This is where YOU come in.
Our requirements are as follows:
Please read carefully and only bid on the job only if you can fulfill all requirements.
1.) Must be a 3D logo
2.) Logo must be full color and vector based (EPS/AI). It should also come across well in Grayscale.
2a.) We will need a full-color & grayscale version provided.
3.) Completed project must be fully editable upon delivery.
4.) Original artwork/concepts ONLY. Stock images/vectors/templates will not be accepted. No wiggle room here. We've seen just about every generic/stock/template/overused logo concept out there. We want something that will separate us from the pack.
5.) All source files will be transferred to us (drafts & final).
6.) Ownership (copyright & trademark) will be transferred to us and become our property. You are free to use the completed logo in your portfolio for your self-promotion under a free license.
7.) We require at least 3 different UNIQUE concepts and revisions until design is completed.
8.) Our time-frame for logo completion is 2-4 weeks.
9.) As previously stated, we are not interested in the typical Helmet & Sword logos (such as the one we're using now). A dozen competitors in our field use a variation of this kind of logo and we're looking to separate ourselves from them.
*** We have attached an image file to give you an idea of what we like as far as lighting, shading and style.
Thank you for taking the time to review our project and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at anytime.
