jayheck got their new logo design by running a design contest:
"Joyful Pilgrim" or "Pilgrim Joy"
Check out jayheck's Logo design contest…
This is to encourage first and foremost...me. And while I'm at it I'd like to encourage other men as well. Men get burnt out on life, largely because life is hard and unpredictable. It also seems pointless IF we think God is a joy-killer and that this is all there is to life. I want to create reminder that this is not the case. We are Pilgrims. JLIfe is an adventure to be lived There is GREAT JOY in this life, that we can get largely from the unpredictabillity. And keeping our eyes on the prize of Heaven is the greatest encouragement of all. In my mind a Pilgrim is one who lives adventurously on the trail, striking a tent, exposed to the elements, but loving the beauty of the journey and its landcape. I'd like the pilgrim, above all, to look like an outdoor enthusiast---a thrill seeker---a battle scarred ninja of the trail whose smile cannot be wiped off with a sandblaster. Why? Because this Ninja has nothing to fear, knowing there is joy with for now on the trail, and even more later.
I have become less restrictive than I was in my first brief, allowing you the freedom to try new things. You all have been chosen as finalists because I both enjoy what you have produced, and because I see in your portfolios that you have creative muscles that, when stretched, produce some great art. I need that from you and am excited to see what you will create. Please stretch yourself beyond the scope of the previous brief. That is not to say that I don't like what has already been presented, because I do. Here are a few requests: 1. No Plymouth pilgrim images please 2. I won't even consider something that looks like stock art. I want it to be something I feel I am seeing for the first time. 3. Please look carefully at the design examples I selected and the ones I have attached. While you, as a designer, may feel uncomfortable with creating something of a look-alike of another designers work, I don't have that hesitation. I love what these other designers have done and have no problem letting them lead the way while helping us tweak and customize to meet our needs. These attached designs are a very good indicator of a style I'd like to see ---fun, playful, original 4. I like simple and clean 5. While I am spiritual, as I have written in my brief, I want to stay away from religious symbolism---religious books, crosses, etc... but hatchets, knives, bows, machetes, tents, backpacks, canteens, bandanas, wilderness hats, mountain bikes, climbing ropes, scuffed knees, crash helmet, gloves, sunglasses---all these and more are fair game and I encourage you to dream up the biggest knee-scarred adventure junkie you can. He is a "Joyful Pilgrim" who experiences the "Pilgrim Joy" only someone with a pilgrim mindset can enjoy. Best of luck and I promise to provide feedback as quickly and specifically as I can. Please let me know if you have any questions.
