Resumo do Concurso

We have briefly worked on the logo. The name of the brand is 'koncepts' with a small 'k (not capital letters) and with an 's' at the end. The company will be doing primarily LED lighting for now. We hope to however have a logo that can represent the other businesses we will potentially do in the future. Therefore, we need a logo that is non-specific to lighting as we might expand to other businesses.

I have asked my friend to help me out on some concepts as well. From these files you are able to see what I like and not like.

koncepts logos selection [url removed, login to view] were ALL rejected as they are too fancy and complicated. I wanted a timeless, simple and clean look. I instructed him to follow such brand's image, feel and theme (not exactly their logo, although I do like Beats Audio's logo) as Volkswagen ([url removed, login to view]), Apple, Samsung (perhaps) and Beats Audio as they have a very modern and timeless look to it.

The first file koncep+logo+selection+[url removed, login to view] represent an initial batch which I did not like at all. It was no where from where I want it to be. Being too complicated and old-fashioned.

koncepts [url removed, login to view] is much better in my opinion. I really liked it however wanted to tweak it a bit.

koncepts [url removed, login to view] is an improvement over v4 however not too much. I didn't like the survey lines all too much from the 'k'

With me being an amateur in graphics design and a lack of software to work on, I did a few on PowerPoint as you can see on the concepts [url removed, login to view] I used the 'Power On/Off' Logo to represent the electronics business I was in (electronics, not specific to lighting).

My friend started working in the same direction I had with the Power Logo, however with a twist as you can see on concepts v6 color [url removed, login to view]

The final version given by him was koncepts [url removed, login to view] It was OK, however I wanted it to be in small letters to make it feel more modern.

I asked my friend to stop helping me as he was spending too much time on this. I believe I am getting close, however I want it to be close to perfect cause like I said everything will be based on this logo (website, product photoshops, PowerPoint template, etc.)

Therefore, there are two ways we can work on this. Either you can work from scratch and show me an array of designs (the failures on the attached files will give you an indication of what I like and not like) or we can expand on the existing logo.

So, let the competition begin. I will be looking at each and every piece of work as this is important to me. The winner will be rewarded the prize and will have to provide me with an Adobe Illustrator file where I will have complete rights and ownership of the logo. Good Luck!

      Far too complex and bold. Not really my type of design and style. They look nice, but just doesn't happen to be my thing.

    42,43,44 looks great! Thank you 42 for coin something abstract. Is there any significance to the triangle or just an aesthetic design? Lahkim, i like the font a lot, but it really resembles beats audio as i said couple times already. don't want to be sued over infringement!

      The font used is a free font, and it's maybe resemble to the beats audio but they have nor right to be used over infringement.

    Anyone able to do some abstract/conceptual logos with no indication of the letter 'k'? Its just to experiment and try it our. You can then add the 'koncepts' wording either on the bottom or right side of the logo. Thanks!

      Well, I have played with the "K" another time, why everyone playing with it because they just take a look at the designs and "some" designer(s) inspirations is limited

    As you suggested #39 is a logo which represents the name of your company. I tried to keep it simple but elegant. Without any 3D. That will make your logo look good on all kinds of media. e.g. an invoice. And if you have a website, you can use just the Bulb as your fav icon. I can change the color if you want. :)

    Guys, especially Lahkim. I like your entries however like I said this is getting too close to Beats Audio territory. I would not want any lawsuits to deal with for infringement from Beats Audio. Anyone innovative enough to create some variance from their logo would be great!

    These entries are not bad. For electronics, if you look at brands like Samsung, Sony, Panasonic, LG, etc. They tend to portray a sense of style at the same time a sense of rigidness as they want to portray reliability to consumers to gain their confidence. Thus, logos that are too wriggly and washy may not be the best. So far, I am liking 3, 4, 5, 14, 26. If you guys are willing, could you try creating a logo that does not consist of the k. It could be ANY logo that does not pot ray the logo like the Nike Swoosh or Adidas stripe. Some experimenting would help explore what's best!

    Very nice Lahkim. Some good entries from you. With the color and font being so close to beats audio, I'm not sure if I will be getting letters for infringement though. I like the red ascent though! And to everyone, its a small letter 'k' and with a 's' as in koncepts. Thanks!

    From clarifications, I have seen that the only thing that was disturbing you was the " K " so I sorted out a k that can satisfy you as I can see it the best fit the circle and I added aswell the boutton off/on on the logo which reffers as you said to the electronics, howerver I would like your feedback concerning my entry #3

      Added a second version without the boutton off/on as I see the design too much busy, I added also the "s" my bad I hope I gave you what you wanted #4
