UPDATED 5/18/18. PLEASE READ. Design must capture both name options - we are at a cross-roads and we aren't sure which name we will select (Big Sky Studios or Big Sky Photo Booth. Currently we are called Big Sky Photo Booth. http://www.bigskyphotobooth.com). We love minimalist designs. Love simple. Love hand-made fonts. Love hand-sketched icons/brand elements. Hate script/scrolly/overly cursive fonts. Dislike distracting marks. Love black and white with accent colors to pop. Want clean design. Would love to have a "mark" that embodies our brand within logo (or separate), so our brand can be identified more simply in certain instances. Love when a mark/stamp can identify a brand. Love logos that can be horizontal and vertical versions for different uses. Our brand persona is fun, easy, hipster, cutting edge, entertainers, studio photographers, capture memories otherwise not captured......Love hipster/retro meets modern/contemporary feeling.
Our company direction is going more modern with animated gifs, video booths, green screen etc. Pushing the limits of technology and photo booths as marketing/social tools as well as nostaliga/entertainment tools. Our target demographic is a higher-end, boutique, luxe and/or corporate client. Definitely millenials too! Not a client who will beat us up/negotiate on our pricing. Our identity should scream "boutique" and "high end", as well as a bit edge/hipster/millenial. SOME IDEAS FOR THE MARK (JUST IDEAS NOT ABSOLUTE REQUIREMENTS): We've been kind of intrigued by the idea of a incorporating a speech "bubble" somehow into the design, but speech bubbles are overused so how could you make it unique and different while still screaming photo booth company? Our photography is shared with the world via social media.. Here is some inspiration for the speech bubble idea:
https://www.pinterest.com/pin/45092…413557170/ We also like the idea of a hand-drawn illustration of a camera outline or some other photography-related mark or sub-mark that could stand alone, but we are finding that the submissions are all very generic, dime-a-dozen when it comes to that camera (no offense). Perhaps a lens? An outline of a lens?
These are just ideas. What could you dream up that relates to photography, GIF, video and high-end photographic entertainment in a mobile photo booth? *WE WANT TO SEE OTHER DESIGNS THAT ARE UNIQUE (NOT NECESSARILY INCORPORATING SPEECH BUBBLE OR CAMERA OUTLINE. ) WOULD LOVE TO SEE FRESH, UNIQUE IDEAS FOR A MARK THAT COULD BE INCLUDED IN THE LOGO. WE DON'T REALLY LOVE ANYTHING WITH A MOUNTAIN, SKY, CLOUD, AS IT IS VERY HARD TO NOT BE DISTRACTING/BUSY.
***For the winning designer, there will be further projects when the contest ends.***
