One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - :: scott ::
Working with ::scott:: was a great experience. I was concerned, never having sourced a design through a website, about what level of quality I would get. I had provided a fleshed-out brief and a lot of visual imagery, and didn’t want anything cookie-cutter or facile. I am working on a concept that is targeting an un-obvious demographic within a sector burdened by historical assumptions, and so the usual stereotypes wouldn’t work. It was clear that ::scott:: had read/interpreted the information and distilled/edited a wide range of inspirations into a clear design. It was a relief when I saw his initial submission early among the others, because he clearly “got it,” and had the skill to propose a design that would be flexible enough to hold up on various platforms/media and still retain an essential integrity to be recognizable as one brand. As we worked together, he was responsive to my requests, and it was a collaborative process. He had opinions about his choices for the various elements and justifications for those opinions, but was still open to trying and adopting changes. ::scott::’s entries led the pack the entire competition, and I am grateful to have found a designer of his caliber. Clearly he deserves his Platinum rating on this site.

How CWH#16 started their logo design journey

Company name

Conference and Event Services (CES)

Overview

Sonoma State University is located 45 minutes north of San Francisco in Sonoma County. Our department schedules student meetings and contracts with external organizations to hold overnight conferences and special events. Our mission is to coordinate events that highlight campus facilities, services and staff to current and potential students, the local community and academic professionals. We strive to accomplish this mission by collaborating with internal and external clients to efficiently schedule these resources while increasing revenue and an enhancing the overall image and reputation of the University.

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

Anybody looking to hold an event or overnight conference/camp in Sonoma County. This would be mostly planners and coordinators who are looking for a "good-value" at a "unique" location. Our low rates and "better than your typical dormitory" lodging are the biggest selling points for professional conferences and family camps. Since we are a university, we would like our logo and eventual brand to resonate with the on-campus community (faculty and students) as well. So, the ideal logo appeals to the 18-24 year old college student, but also conveys a friendliness and comfortability that would attract a family camp.

Requirements

Our abbreviated department name is CES. We think something with a key and these letters would be appropriate considering all the functions of the department relate to "opening" meeting spaces/lodging and we are the key to a successful conference or event at SSU.

The following can also be creatively added into the logo, but are not necessary and we prefer a clean and simple design.

Our University colors are blue and white. Our mascot is the SeaWolf. Our University Logo has some swoosh like thing that represents the hills behind our campus. Sonoma County is known for being "Wine Country" and all of our Residential buildings are named after grape growing regions.
