Contest Brief

Hello there! Are you looking for a challenge? I am in need of a simple, yet fun, cool, and catchy logo for my new Shopify store called "From Gadgets To Gizmos". We sell the latest tech gadgets across a wide variety of categories. Also, I am a fun father of 5 boys and we love staying on top of tech trends that are relevant and useful for the whole family. We want to help other families and individuals through offering tech gadgets that are time saving and make life easier. We call the tech gadgets we find and love the “coolest contraptions!”
Contest Requirements:
- Custom Logo that can be setup for Desktop size of 900(w) x 120(h) pixels or less
- Custom Logo that can be setup for Mobile size of 600(w) x 180(h) pixels or less (can be the same or similar to the one above as long as sizing works on Mobile devices)
- Custom Favicon that is 16 x 16 pixels
- Custom Banner that can be setup for Desktop (website and Facebook) with a size of 820(w) x 312(h) that can also be resized and used for mobile with sizing of 640(w) x 360(h). Banner should show a collage of happy people (adults and kids are ok to include) in different settings (inside, outside, at work, in a car, etc) using various tech gadgets.
Design Elements
- I would like the logo to highlight the "A" in Gadgets and the "Z" in Gizmos, so that the logo gives a visual cue that the store sells products from "A" to "Z" (i.e. to imply my Shopify store has all kinds of gadgets and gizmos ranging from A to Z). It doesn’t have to be blatant and can be more of a secret meaning subtlety weaved into the logo design.
- I think it would also be cool to have 2 little cute and whimsical robots (named Gadget and Gizmo) that can serve as a mascots for the brand as well. The theme here is that our bots (Gadget and Gizmo) race to crawl the Internet to find the latest hi-tech products and also to deliver them to customers. So the bots are on the move working diligently in an automated and efficient fashion.
- Preferred color scheme should include some combination of the following: Dark Blue (0, 0, 85), Muted Blue (0, 67, 129), Bright Blue (0, 0, 255), Light Blue (22, 136, 197), Light Yellow (255, 219, 0), Light Gold (244, 194, 33), Light Grey (192, 201, 199), Dark Grey (38, 38, 38), and Black (0, 0, 0)
The attached logo files are of an example I made. I am not a professional in this space, so I definitely know you can make something extremely better! Use your amazing creativity and skills, and I can’t wait to see what you come up with to set my brand apart and make it unique, distinct, and appealing! Thanks!!

Employer Feedback

“Roron was the first to respond on my contest and right away I could tell his design was very unique and very creative. In fact others tried submitting "look-a-likes" based on his entry, but could not match the quality and thoughtfulness of his original design. Wonderful work and it turned out to be better than I had envisioned!”

      Just had a thought...on the banner there could be a tag line that could read "Finding You the Coolest Contraptions to Make Life Easier!"

    You guys are incredibly talented and are putting forth great effort! I very much appreciate it! After seeing some of the entries, I am definitely leaning more towards simpler fonts that are easier to read, so customers can quickly read and recognize the brand. I feel my initial font choice looks cool, but was not as easy to read. Also I feel my spacing was off and maybe too far apart also making it difficult for the reader to scan across to much to read. I like the font size to be big enough so it is the focus and robots to be mid size and not over powering the text. I do like how I had incorporated "circuits" into the logo, so that might be interesting to see a more original approach on that, and also if we could see what the yellow colors I had suggested might look like too. I definitely and liking the light blue and light green. Those go quite well together.

      Just to clarify my comment on color, I would be interested to see what the yellow and blue color combination might look like on some designs. The light blue and light green combo does look pretty awesome though.

    One additional thing I would like to point out for the contest, was the request for a favicon (which is the small 16 x 16 icon that shows up for a website in a browser; this could just be one of the robots, or one of the robot's heads), and also the banner (see description below), which will be used on my homepage and Facebook page to give people a sense of what the brand offers...latest tech gadgets that make life interesting, fun, easy-going, and happy. I will re-post the bullets related to those 2 other requested items in a comment below. Really looking forward to what you guys will come up with!! I am totally impressed with everything so far!
