Краткое описание конкурса

We need to redesign the logo for our website. You can find our logo here. [login to view URL]

Also, we're wanting to redesign our site so, if we find a designer that we like, this can turn into a bigger project.

First off, don't copy and paste a icon or clipart from online. We run reverse images searches as a business and any copied content won't be accepted. The logo must be 100% UNIQUE.

We want a simple design. We're a tech company that provides data to users in order to verify if someone is real online. We cater to everyday consumers, lawyers, models and photographers. We want something that won't alienate any users but, show them that we're professional. We want something that will communicate that we help people find information but, don't want the typical magnifying glass that you see everywhere. We do like the concept of a fish outline and incorporating a thumbprint somehow. We've seen an example of a thumbprint that looks like a fish and we really like that concept. We are very open to even changing our colors since this will also lead to a site redesign.

Where we got our name from?
The term catfishing is a slang term to describe someone who is acting like someone else online. A catfish will use someone elses' online identity and claim that it it theirs. We help people find and verify people online so, this fits into what we do and our core market.

What we like?
We would like to incorporate the catfish head (or body) into our logo. We don't want a realistic looking catfish. And no, we don't want a cat and fish as the logo. We would like to incorporate a thumbprint or something the identifies us as being able to pull social information and that we provide information. Please let me know if you have any questions. We are committed to finding the right logo and I will be spending a lot of time going through each logo and providing feedback to each person that follows our guidelines. Please let us know if you have any other questions.



We also want a logo that can also be flat (one color) and still work. With mobile, we think that this is important.

Below are some examples of some logos that we've liked in the past.

    Fellow freelancers and contest holder,
    I have used and redrawn the EXACT same catfish that the contest holder had in his old logo (as much as I could since the quality of the image is low), simplified the original concept and based the style upon the examples our contest holder has shown.
    I really do not want to be accused of stealing since I'M NOT a thief.
    Compare, and you will see that the fish from the old logo looks like the one from the google link. It's not my fault that the previous designer may have used a stock photo or a photo downloaded from google, I just wanted to keep the brand identity and simplify it.
    I want to build a honest reputation on this website as a designer and I'm not a copycat in any way. I have always been against copycats that try to earn easy money while real designers work legitimately and spend hours on developing concepts and designs.
    Thank you for reading this everyone, have a nice day and I hope you understand me.

      Well, it is given that his submission is "unique" because you clearly gave us the direction and the style that you like and other designers (including me) submitted designs in line to that. If you just said that you just want your old logo to be cleaned and put a letter S inside (which I don't see any resemblance to the links that you've posted), then it's a different story. Anyway, congrats to the winner. I respect your final decision.

    I got an e-mail. "You are being issued a formal warning due to submitting copyrighted imagery/design to a contest. Your entries to the contest "Design a Logo" #250. "
    I created totally by myself inspired by the catfish! That design DOES NOT exist and it is original! Show me ANY kind of proof that it is stolen and I will retract all my entries.

    3 questions.
    1 Why did I get an e-mail warning with a false accusation for a 100% original entry of mine?
    2. Why am I not a winner anymore?
    3. Why are all of my entries not visible anymore?

    I wanted to participate in this contest but wow. How is the winning logo stolen?! It is taken from the client's ORIGINAL logo and modified to meet the the client's requirements. It is in NO way stolen or copied or whatever you wanna call it. Be professional for God's sake. The community on this website is the worst yet. I will be extremely disappointed if the contest holder falls prey to your awful lies and false accusations.

      Hi, it's clearly stated by the CH that he needs a NEW approach to the logo. He even posted some links to his prefer style which is minimal, sleek and stylish as he calls it. And he even said that he will not consider a real-looking catfish (which incidentally, his old logo is). But I do agree to you when it comes to the community :)

      Please read what I have written on the clarification board sir. Actually, this is part of what you said to me on the first design that had a circle background: " I like how you kept our current logo and just cleaned it up."

    I thought contest holder is looking for a sleeker and minimal logo and not a real-looking fish. Unfortunately, this icon is a silhouette taken from google and slightly modified and in no way unique except from an S in negative space.

    A lot of people have submitted real looking fish. We're a tech company and it just doesn't suit us. I want something more sleek and more like newer logo styles of today.
