One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - ChrisTomlinson
Chris did an amazing job on our logo and worked together with us closely to get it right. We did 1 contest and hired a professional ex-Apple designer and still didn't get the results we wanted. We then did a 2nd contest with almost 1,000 entries and Chris won it with his awesome logo! People love our logo, we always get great remarks about it and it's been featured on VentureBeat, Mashable, Entrepreneur Magazine etc. and been on billboards in San Francisco. People already remember our "G" mark which Chris created. I'd highly recommend Chris to anyone -- he's the definition of rock star designer.

How Jaime Keenan started their logo design journey

Company name

Sparked Marketing

Overview

I'm Jaime, marketing girl turned startup entrepreneur. I'm now starting my 2nd business, a small marketing agency for startups and small businesses. I have been involved in some succesful start ups myself and so feel I'm in a good place to help. I'm very easy going, liberal, love to chat and make friends.

Into cooking, music and festivals. My favourite place is Brighton and I like anything ecclectic and arty.

I'm a London girl, fashionable into vintage and retro but never stuck up or into myself. 1980's styling mixed with Chanel geek chic. I'm quite girly but also a force to be reckoned with in the sense that I know what I'm talking about but will always deliver things succinctly and diplomatically. I'm not one to go barging in and am quite sensitive and tactile.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Young, cool startups - or startups that don't necessarily have the edge but know they need it e.g. technology startups.

Also would like to appeal to small business owners so they may not be familiar with latest marketing techniques so brand needs to be approachable and not stuffy in any way.

Requirements

I am looking for a logo that uses the name of my company but also has a cool graphical element to it. The company name is 'Sparked Marketing'

In a way although the word 'Sparked' is quite a masculine forceful word, would be happy for it to also be quite approachable and warm in style.

I want this to look very contemporary and cool - no stuffy corporate logo's please.

Be great to have some reference to something sparky in the graphic e.g. dynamite, lightbulb etc use your imagintaio but keen for this not to be too cliched or blokey so simplicity the key. Would like there to be some softness too so its clear that theres a woman behind it - that feminne touch.

Ideally a logo that symbolises that by working with me its easy, but I can deliver really powerful results.

I like vibrant and on-trend colours - see http://www.colourlovers.com for some inspiration (like pinks, olive and mint greens but please don't feel restricted by this) I don't like reds yellows or dull colours too much so avoid where possible.

Need the logo although modern to be a classic design so nothing thats going to date tomorrow.

Whatever, whatever, whatever I do not want anything corporate or stiff. Think warm, fuzzy, light, approachable yet powerful.

Would also like there to be consideration for a strapline to fit within the logo.

Preferably I would like the logo to be able to be used in a number of formats e.g. one version on white background, one for when I need a more vibrant impact, black version for simple stationery etc.

Some really good designs so far but I'M GETTING A BIT BORED WITH THE SAME LOGO and COLOUR VARIATIONS NOW I know I said in the brief I like neon pink and the dynamite image (have removed now for anyone new reading this) but really keen to see a good variety of logo designs and colours. Some hints and ideas for what I mean by on-trend colours:
