Fireman made a great design, produced many versions and was always quick to respond. A pleasure to work with.
Thanks a lot! It was very nice working with you.
The designer was very responsive to edits and very creative in the process. Quite professional.
Working with Akbar was wonderful. He came up with the best design initially and then was extremely willing to modify it until I was happy with it. He has very good taste and understood what I was trying to achieve in terms of my logo and business card. He offered ideas that took me in new and better directions than I had originally planned and the final product was so much better than I had in mind. I strongly recommend working with Akbar. He is a terrific designer!!

Who are you known as?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
DM Capital is a hedge fund that is in the business of managing money for wealthy individuals, family offices, and institutions. Philosophically, we are long-term focused by-and-hold value investors (like Warren Buffet), and our investment strategy focuses on a small, concentrated portfolio of publicly-traded companies. There are three areas of focus in our strategy of investing... 1) valuation, 2) business quality, and 3) management team. It would be interesting for a logo to consider having an image that represents these three ideas (NOT using the above words, but through an image or format of your choosing).
We do not aim to be like other money managers. We aim to outperform the market over time, which is very difficult to do. We have a different investment style and philosophical view than most. And we want a logo that stands apart from what you see in other firms in our space. We do NOT want to look like the conservative old money managers and banks of the past, so something newer or more modern may be more appealing. We look forward to your designs!
What industry do you think your business is most related to?

I have run a few of these contests for other firms, and I always enjoy the process of seeing what you create! I am interactive, and appreciate designers that can help tease out different directions for designs. It may be that you do a design that is simply "DM Capital" with whatever themes you find interesting, or you may choose to have a stamp or image representing the three areas of focus in how we invest that is beside or within "DM Capital." We are open to ideas, so start sharing to see what inspires us. Thank you for staying engaged as we go back and forth with ideas. And thank you for sharing your creativity!
