PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Due to previous projects where work has not been of a professional standard, we ask ALL bids to be accompanied with a sample of THIS logo (not a portfolio of past work). Please do not bid if you are not providing a sample mock-up with your bid.
The logo we wish to create should read either
"Martial Edge" or "MARTIAL EDGE"
(Depending on font types one of these might look better).
Martial Edge is an online community that provides extensive information, articles, videos, and an online store for martial arts. All martial arts are covered (eg karate, judo, etc).
There is also a future possibility that Martial Edge will become a magazine.
The logo has to adhere to the following rules:
1. It must be a SIMPLE design that would fit on a small business card, at the top of a website, or on a larger poster. Something too complexed will not be appropriate.
2. With regards to colour, ideally we'd like to use as few colours as possible. Because there is a possiblity that the logo will go onto a magazine, it must not have too many colours as it needs to be generic enough to put anywhere and still look professional.
3. The logo must be made in true vector format (although for your samples obviously watermarked jpges are fine)
Look forward to seeing your samples. We are looking or extremely professional logos only for this project, please do not bid if you do not have such experience in logo design.
