Optional slogan- The Sun Shines Brighter in Texas
This campaign, "Brighter Texas" is a solar advocacy organization focused on energy freedom and choice in Texas. It will be a non-partisan campaign, organizing citizens and influencing policymakers to bring more rooftop solar to Texas. We want the logo to be more modern, and edgy, more like a tech or bright, colorful, edgy consumer product or service, less typical/generic solar brand. You can incorporate the Texas outline or the sun, but it's not a requirement. While we chose a diverse set of examples - we really want something simple, with a great font, and an edge. Happy to talk about what we liked in the examples we have chosen: - they're all different. But they all are edgy - some have just a beautiful font (we'd want brighter color) and that's enough. It doesn't have to be based on the Sun, or Texas.
Other color requirements
I'd like to explore the following colors: Let designers make suggestions: Greens: Growth, harmony and success. Blues: Knowledge, trust, calm and honesty.
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.
smerkelson collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
