nwu.isen got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Create a logo for a university research center
Check out nwu.isen's Logo design contest…
The Center for Catalysis and Surface Science is a research center at Northwestern University dedicated to discovering new catalytic agents. Catalysts enable a broad range of chemical reactions that are fundamental to industrial and consumer products, such as plastics, pharmaceuticals, and fuels. Primary audience is scientists, peer institutes at other universities, and industry partners.
Other color requirements
I'd like to explore the following colors: Purples: Imagination, spirituality, royalty and luxury. Aquas: Empathy, compassion, clarity and precision. Greens: Growth, harmony and success.
Scientists at the catalysis center perform basic research in chemistry and materials science, so we're going for a modern and scientific logo. Much of the research has applications in energy. We normally frame our discussions about this center on catalysis and sustainable materials. But other concepts to think about when designing the logo include: sustainability, energy, molecules, chemical reactions, chemical bonds, green chemistry, environmental footprint. The Catalysis Center is a partner center of the Institute for Sustainability and Energy at Northwestern (ISEN). Ideally, we'd like the Catalysis logo to work well if we display it next to the ISEN logo (see attached), and if possible, the logos of our other partner centers (ANSER and SOFI, also attached). Lastly, if possible, we'd like to get the Catalysis logo in two different aspect ratios - one horizontal, and one more square (see the two different ISEN logos). Current Catalysis center logo is attached, as well. To read more about the catalysis center and how we discuss the work, please see ISEN's 2015 prospectus: http://issuu.com/isen2/docs/isen_prospectus_5-15-15_post_proof/1
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Logo design starts at $399.

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.
nwu.isen 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.
