Winner - Jonas Mateus
Jonas was very professional throughout my contest, and was happy to accommodate all of my requests. His design was my "first impression" choice, and also the most popular of the 100+ I received when I ran a poll. A pleasure to work with, thanks Jonas :)

How Dinankim started their logo design journey

Overview

My name is Kim and I am a 30 year old Sustainability Coordinator (government lackie) that will be selling all of my stuff, quitting my job and traveling with my husband around the world in early 2012. I am also a published travel writer and am launching my website http://www.so-many-places.com as a way to share our travel adventures with the world. Aside from writing about world travel, I also write about running and adventures in my home state of Oregon.

My blog is picking up steam every day (visitors) and I am looking for a beautifully crafted and unique logo that will capture the attention of visitors to my site. I want visitors to know right away that my blog is about travel and adventure. This isn't a blog for people that are content to sit at home and watch tv. This is a blog for people that live an active life and a follow their dreams.

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

My tarket audience are travelers from all over the world. I cater specifically to around-the-world travelers (travelers on long-term adventures, generally for a year or more). I also have a sub-market of runners and outdoor enthusiasts in Oregon (see tabs on my blog: running around the world and so many places in oregon). My audience consists of travelers, dreamers, risk-takers and outdoor enthusiasts who live active lifestyles.

Requirements

The title of my blog is SO MANY PLACES and the subtitle is FINALLY THE TIME. I would like the title to be very bold and stand out but for the subtitle to also be included in the design.

I am open to design ideas. I want it to be very obvious that this is a world travel blog. So, a logo that incorporates the globe or at least easy-to-recognize landmarks from around the world. I don't want real photos to be included in the logo, I like graphics that have obviously been created, but that aren't necessarily cartoon-y.

I have an idea of one of those signs that you see in town squares with the arrows that point all different directions and say "Antartica 7,000 miles, Spain, 3,000 miles, etc. etc." The arrows could say "SO" "MANY" "PLACES"

Because I write about traveling in Oregon, I would like to somehow incorporate the state of Oregon in the design logo. Perhaps a design that shows the graphic outline of the state, with the town square arrow sign stuck into the state of Oregon and pointing out towards the rest of the world.

I also love mountains, if mountains can be incorporated, that is a bonus.

Here is an example of some other travel blogs that have logos I really like:

Thank you, thank you! I am envious of all of you with creative and talented minds. I'm so excited to see what you come up with!
