How NexusTrading started their logo design journey

Company name

Nexus Trading

Overview

Nexus Trading buys goods directly from selected manufacturers and sells to businesses and consumers at attractive prices. We only sell goods that we can guarantee value for money for. For consumers, this means a good price for the provided products and services. For business customers, this means a strong business case and clear Return on Investment (ROI) proposition.

This contest is for the logo. If successful, a contest for business stationary and a website template may follow.

Nexus Trading needs to have a logo designed that fits the type of business that we are. We strongly care about the message that we portray, and emphasize the need that this message is clear and consistent.

We intend to use this logo on the website, in the web shop, in our email template, on (pdf and printed) invoices, on printed marketing materials, on stationary and business cards, on promotional materials, in powerpoint presentations, etc. The logo must be scalable: it must look good when printed on an A0 piece of paper.

Please provide the following file formats:
Vector file formats - .ai and .eps (CMYK) at minimum 300 dpi resolution.
Web file format - .png, jpg.

Our understanding of their situation and expectations enables us to offer high value products at a competitive prices.
