Loparka's design was originally a contender in a contest I ran here a couple years ago. I always liked and remembered her design but was talked into awarding the original win to someone else. I regret this for the last few years and finally got in touch with her to make it right, and pay her for her excellent work! It is elegant, well composed, beautiful to look at and just the right touch of classic and modern. Mahalo Nui Loa from Hawaii!
How Dave Willey started their logo design journey
The Mindful Cricket
We are three friends who are building an online community. It's a place where people will come to learn and share--to learn about how to let go of the past and forgive; to improve all areas of their lives including their bodies, minds, and spirit. Our ultimate goal is to help people live happier, more peaceful lives, and to have people be better to one another as a result. We feel that this platform and community will change the world for the better.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The target audience is very broad. We do expect that the site will attract people who are searching for something better and who want to improve their lives. They may be people who are unhappy with their lives for one reason or another.
We are looking for a design that will stand out and be memorable. We intend to use the logo on the website, on Twitter, Facebook, etc. The cricket should not be too cartoon-like and should not end up looking like an alien. We want to cricket to look like a cricket--preferably the brown and black type. We want the cricket to have a wise and peaceful look on its face. You are free to be creative with how the cricket is positioned.
