How akosintl started their logo design journey

Company name

Clear for Takeoff

Overview

I am responsible for selecting a conference logo for a BILLION DOLLAR MERGER.

DFDS A/S (”DFDS”) has recently completed the acquisition of Norfolk Holdings B.V.(”Norfolkline”). DFDS, the name of the combined company, has created one of the largest ferry and logistics operators in Europe – which means a better service and even more value for customers!

DFDS (http://dfds.com) is a billion dollar company with over 6000 employees in more than 10 countries. The primary businesses of DFDS are sea transport (via a network of ships) and logistics (via a network of trailer companies). We are located in Copenhagen, Denmark.

DFDS hosts multiple conferences and special events per year, where designers have the opportunity to contribute. Additionally, DFDS runs a passenger shipping unit that directly markets to consumers.

Take up the challenge and submit your best design. One win could mean future work!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

After months of merger and acquisition planning, DFDS is ready to launch a full scale integration effort. As such, DFDS has invited the top executives -- the best of the best -- to a 2 day Kickoff Conference.

You, as the designer, have the opportunity to create a LOGO for the Kickoff Conference. The theme of the conference is CLEAR FOR TAKEOFF.

The audience is made up of high-level executives responsible for operations, sales, and management of the billion dollar company. As such, we are requesting a PROFESSIONAL logo.

The idea behind CLEAR FOR TAKEOFF is that DFDS has done a significant amount of planning before the integration, and now we are ready to start doing the work. So, CLEAR FOR TAKEOFF means we have been given the go-ahead to the executives to start the "real work".

The idea of a passport stamp is that each individual will feel they free to begin their journey, like receiving a stamp at the airport.

Requirements

I would like a logo design of CLEAR FOR TAKEOFF that looks like a passport stamp.

Every design MUST include:
* The words: "Clear for Takeoff". You can experiment with capitalization (all words, all letters, mixed case, etc.)
* The "George Cross" in the DFDS logo (see DFDS_LOG_NEG.png for a picture of the cross)
* A LIGHT alternative for dark backgrounds; a DARK alternative for white backgrounds
* Final deliverables in .ai and .png/jpg format

Every design MAY include:
* The date: 14 September 2010 (in any DD MM YYYY format)
* Company name: DFDS

Preferred Colors:
* Blue (CMYK 100·57·00·40 // RGB 00·68·124 // # 00447C), Grey (CMYK 00·00·00·70 // RGB 109·110·113 // # 6D6E71), White, Black
* You may try other colors

Like:
* Professional designs meant for business
* Non-standard, stylized fonts (see TeamUpToWin.jpg as an example)
* To be able to read "Clear for Takeoff" easily

Don't Like:
* Cartoons, clipart, or stock images.
* Pictures of airplanes -- we are a shipping company
* Crazy colors

Passport Stamp Examples:
* http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/phot…ef4syKhH8g

Feedback:
* I will try to give feedback on every design in the following way
1 STAR: Not Close. Please re-read design brief
3 STARS: Closer. Good idea but not yet a match
5 STARS: Near the Goal. Will PM my feedback

Good luck everyone!
