One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - Geca
A real pleasure to work with. Geca (aka Alex) discovered the very essence of what it was I was looking for, which was no small task considering that this was a great competition with many, many fantastic designs. In the end though, Geca gave me what I needed, worked with me in perfecting the design, and really helped capture the Bohemian and timeless feel that I was going for. Great designer. I wish I could have picked ALL his designs and concepts.

How MetroFront started their logo design journey

Summary

We are building a city portal/site for bellevue.com and want a logo using the domain bellevue.com. Bellevue is a rapidly growing city and fast becoming the destination of choice to live, work and play for all in the region. We want a logo that portrays luxury, style, cool and fun.

Company name

bellevue.com

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

We are building a city website/portal for bellevue.com and want a logo using the domain bellevue.com. Bellevue is a rapidly growing city and fast becoming the destination of choice to live, work and play for all in the region. We want a logo that portrays luxury, style, cool and fun (see luxurybellevue.com--not related to us--for some context).

Currently, we operate as MetroBellevue.com and will be moving to bellevue.com. bellevue.com will offer similar info/services as these more developed city portals: Miami.com, Toronto.com, Vancouver, LA.com

Desired Style/Personality

Luxury, style and metropolis cool and fun. This logo will be our brand and identity. We want to be able to use the logo on the following primary items: 1. Web site, 2. Business cards, 3. T-shirts.

Desired Color Scheme

We like blue-ish and red-ish colors/shades (eg, #0088CC, #CC3300). I am thinking 2 colors (maybe 3?) on a white background and maybe on a dark background.

A Few Ideas We Have

We want to give you an idea of what the city Bellevue looks like. Here are a brief description and few images that may help you picture Bellevue:
- Bellevue is located directly east of Seattle (a larger city) and is separated from Seattle by Lake Washington (see Google map link below)
- From Seattle you must drive across Lake Washington to enter Bellevue
- East of Bellevue in the background is the Cascade Mountain range
- The following photos will provide additional context:

1. The primary focus will be on ‘bellevue’. The ‘.com’ can be placed maybe vertically at the end in a different color and smaller size font. This should be a strong design to be able to stand by itself.
2. Maybe below ‘bellevue.com’ have a design that represents water (ie, Lake Washington) as you enter Bellevue
3. Maybe above ‘bellevue.com’ have a design that represents the following as you are in Bellevue looking further east:
a. Tall buildings and/or
b. Mountains

Again, #1 is the primary focus and 2 & 3 should complement and not take away from #1. Other great/creative ideas are welcome…give it a try!

Fonts/Logos We Like

We are thinking lowercase. Some fonts we like:
1. ITC Kabel (demi)
2. Bodum.com font
3. Miami.com font
4. Open to other fonts that portray our desired style/personality

Some logos we like:
1. Miami.com logo – like their use of the wavy design underneath ‘miami’ to represent water. Even without the wavy design, we like the clean look of just ‘miami.com’
2. Vancouver.com logo – like their representations of water, mountain and buildings above ‘vancouver”
3. Bodum.com logo

Desired File Formats

Vector formats: .psd/.ai with all layers (.eps for t-shirts printing)

Other

Logo must be original. Accepted logo/design will be property of Bellevue.com
