opanayikasub got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Powerful new logo needed for renegade meditation group
Check out opanayikasub's Logo design contest…
I've included some info about what I do / my audience / brand positioning and desired brand experience to paint you as much of a picture as possible. What I do - I teach people to be radically happy. I used to be a Buddhist monk. I teach an innovative, progressive form of meditation that takes its roots in a deep understanding of ancient traditional practice but presents original teachings in a contemporary way. I want to design a brand logo and colour scheme that encapsulates my point of difference in the meditation and personal growth sphere. This being modern, edgy, embracing shadow work, and speaking to both the light and dark aspects of spiritual practice. I want to create a visual representation of that with my branding. (No fluffy pink clouds with spangles on them.) Who I do - - GenX – mainly females in the 30-45 age range. Many married with children. - Millenial females - Males are a target, but statistically are far less inclined to practice meditation. Positioning - I am appealing to the younger generation. GenX to Millenials. GenX are enamoured by the ‘street wisdom’ I give the mindfulness message. I present ancient spiritual teachings in modern language, emptying it of the pastel aesthetic that is associated with meditation and mindfulness, and presenting it in a more edgy, risque, punk kind of way. The tab below asked me to provide my industry - I selected 'religious' - but a more accurate description would be the wellness industry.
This logo is to be used in line with building a personal brand. BRANDING - Here are 5 groupings of adjectives that describe my personality / brand - Innovative / Clever / Adept - Progressive / Modern / Contemporary - Creative / Passion / Intensity / Expansion - Engaging / Open / Transparent - Masculine / Subtle / Under-stated I'm a meditation teacher that is going against the stream of the industry in how I present the material - striking a balance between tradition and modernity, in a cool, hip, out-spoken kinda way. Brand experience - - I want people to feel like they are breaking the rules by meditating – Meditation has always been a rebellious act. The sages of old were true rebels, societal drop-outs and seekers who pushed the limits of perception and human experience. I want us get back to the renegade roots of spirituality and realise it is a bold, daring, even irresponsible act – it’s about flying in the face of societal norms and expectations and calling into question the very nature of life itself. - I want my audience to feel about me: What is this guy gonna do next? DESIGN COMPONENTS - I want the design to be clean, minimalist, and strong / MASCULINE - I would like a darker theme - black / dark neutral - possibly incorporating blue and green - I like the idea of a full moon / circles - the idea of radiance, light being cast, illumination from within the dark - have you seen the movie 'Arrival'? There is a 'circle language' spoken by aliens in that movie which is circles made of ink (i have included an image as a reference image) - I like this circular shape with this kind of flowing liquid form as it reminds me of the moon and the japanese 'enso' - The mind is contained within the heart-space (NOT in the head - so no images of heads / brains please) - also no images of the predictable imagery we see in yoga/meditation logos - hearts, yin-yang symbols, lotuses etc I hope this information helps, and I'd be very keen to see what you can do! Blessings to you!! p.s. the winning designer will have to be open to some tinkering to finalise the design, but I also wish to develop a brand pack and possible additional material like social media images etc , and possibly a logo animation with the designer after logo is finalised :) I've included one logo style that I like - cos it's clean and minimal.
