Don't take my word for it, check out Qien's former contests. An outstanding designer able to take a relatively nuanced site concept like American politics and capture the exact sentiment I was after. He is (they are) very easy to communicate with, reads every letter of the contest details I provided, makes multiple requested edits and even provides additional concepts (like what a business card or branded envelope would look like) that I hadn't even considered. I'd use this designer again in a split second.

Foremost, I'd like a designer to build a logo that represents precision, excellence, engineered results. If I knew what that looked like I'd have drawn it myself. However I will know it when I see it!!!
1) I'd like a logo with the letters "OPC".
2) Integrate the words into another version.
3) Integrate letters, full name and slogan into a 3rd version.
4) work must be completely original as the product will be going for trademark.
5) this logo is going to be used for: website, business cards, clothing, bags, stationary, etc. I want it to exemplify the BEST!
6) attached images are simply what we have used in the past. this project is an effort to further differentiate OPC from the corporate body of our program: ( http://www.arpwave.com/clinic and http://www.ultrafitevosport.com )
7) The logo needs to have staying power, not trendy or fad font or lines. 30 years from now I want this to be relevant.
8) Slogan: will be added later.
9) If I was a graphic designer I'd probably have more direction, if something comes to mind as far as a graphic or image detail show me your ideas...open to exploration!
10) will consider guaranteed prize and increases in prize based on performance and interest in submissions with in first 5 days.
11) I would like to have the following high res files if possible:
12) the colors in the attached jpg are what we want to work with.
