rick.blackham got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Mantis Pest Solutions or Blue Pest Solutions
Check out rick.blackham's Logo design contest…
We will initially be a pest control company taking care of all sorts of pest control needs from residential, to commercial, to termite etc. Mantis is indicative of the Praying Mantis which is natures natural pest control. Anyway, the look and feel of the logo will help us decide.
Logo types to explore
On the internet I found a font I love called Kasheeda it is a 3d font that looks like a ribbon. I would like our logo to be 3d in nature and to mimick this font. The Kasheeda font is harder to read but I would like ours to be easily read without losing the sweeping twisting cursive nature of it. That said, the 3d nature of Mantis I see needing to have a praying mantis bug that won't particularly be part of the logo but a mascot that we could put somewhere on the truck though .. I don't necessarily want it on the Mantis Pest Solutions logo. This praying mantis I see more as a cartoonish mascot kinda like the geico lizard is a mascot for geico. The Praying Mantiss mascot might be more something we put on the website and on the back of the truck. I foresee the Pest Solutions font will be something more standard like sofadi one although I am open to be wowed by something different but perhaps more readable than the kasheeda type font. I also don't know that Pest Solutions needs to be 3d. Lastly the 3d nature is something that we want to easily incorporate into our hats and shirts to where we can have people see the 3d shadowing on our truck decals, hats, business cards etc. so the 3d nature is a key component of what we are going for. If I haven't mentioned this already we are looking to use the Seattle Seahawks color scheme with the Mantis being the bright green of the seahawks and the blues and grays they use. We also will likely be using silver tacoma trucks to give you an idea of the back drop of the logo on the truck. As far as uniforms they will be either the dark blue of the seahawks color scheme or charcaol etc.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their logo design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
rick.blackham collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

And then… they selected a winner!
Very thoughtful and accommodating designer. GREAT communicator and flexible as he realizes he is the professional and needs to exercise discipline with non designers. Great experience.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
