One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - kopies
Absolutely Wonderful! Starting with the design process, griphon quickly jumped out in front with the creative and unique logo that we ultimately chose as our winner! It represented everything in the design brief we asked for, and included the tweaks we recommended in the comments section. Ultimately working through the entire handover process from start to finish was a joy! Provided the necessary files for print and digital use. Couldn't be happier! Thanks Griphon!

How Howie Rhee started their logo design journey

Company name

Duke Start-Up Challenge, http://www.dukestartupchallenge.org

Overview

The Duke Start-Up Challenge is the premiere entrepreneurship competition at Duke University. We're entering our 11th year of operation. The goal is to get as many Duke students to try starting a company while they are still students (last year we had 109 teams). We market heavily across the university, but our current logo is not very good.

- We need an eye-catching logo.
- Pantone 301 is "Duke blue" but an accent color would be good.
- Pitchforks and devils are welcome, but not required.
- We have used orange as an accent color, but that's not required, although there's something decent about having an accent color because most things at the University are blue.

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

Primary Audience1) Duke University students (about 12,000)

Secondary Audiences
2) Other folks at Duke including faculty and staff, as well as alumni
3) People from the entrepreneurial community outside of Duke

How do we reach our students?

- We do a lot of postering/flyering.
- We put the logo on t-shirts. Blue t-shirts with white logos are very common (and we'd probably want to be able to do that with this logo too).
- We send a lot of web-based emails that include the logo.

Requirements

1) Eye-catching and cool.
2) Says "Duke Start-Up Challenge"
3) "Start-Up Challenge" has to be as prominent as "Duke"
4) EPS file (vector)

Not required but could be cool
1) Maybe uses orange (or another accent color)
2) Maybe includes some sort of reference to Blue Devils (pitchforks, horns)
3) Maybe uses some variation of the "On" button that was in the original logo
4) Maybe uses an "up arrow"
5) Maybe someone in a business suit
6) Maybe a lightbulb
