We are looking for a completely new identity for our company.
You can find us easily enough online although we will shortly be re-designing our whole website so please don't send through any designs mocked up on the existing site.
Our current logo isn't working for us so don’t be influenced or take inspiration from the current logo.
IMPORTANT - We still want a character / mascot to be the center piece of our logo. However, we want him to be much stronger, unique, brandable and memorable.
Our company name is "DMCA Takedown Czar' or "Takedown Czar" for short. A "czar" is an enforcer type person. Someone who comes in to clean up a problem. Think "drugs czar" or in our case "anti-piracy czar."
The type of character we're after should convey:
Think secret service agent, private detective, Pinkerton etc...
Alternatively, you might want to take a different route and design a character who is more of a spy type figure. He should convey:
- An air of mystery
Think spy, men in black, FBI spook etc...
Whichever way you choose to go, the character should not appear sinister or evil. He can have an air of mystery but we also not scare people away.
UPDATE (26/8/15) - We've recently had a lot of similar designs and now want people to submit a different approach. Here are some examples:
IMPORTANT - these are just "EXAMPLES" to get you thinking. We are looking for an original design and you to bring your own creativity to the table. Read that again and focus on the words "original" and "creativity." Remember, we are piracy protection agency and are very good at identying rip-offs and plagurised work...
I should also say that while the new design should be focused around the character, we still want our company name to feature prominently in the design.
Above all I encourage you to design without restriction. Be creative!
Excited to see what you come up with :)
