One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - T-Bone
T-Bone did a fantastic job for my web design contest. I required 4 pages and for each of them, the designer put in a meticulous level of work to provide multiple variations and ideas. Really original concepts with very polished layouts. Congratulations again T-Bone on winning, richly deserved. Highly recommended for other contest holders :)

Company name

Codejock Software Solutions

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

We are looking to redesign the logo for our website codejock.com to help rebrand our company and product line. We are a software components provider, creating custom user interface tools that developers can use in their applications.

The purpose of this contest is to create a logo that people will easily recognize and remember. We want our logo to convey that we are a well established and professional software company, who is a leader in our field. The logo will be used for business cards, brochures, letterheads, and most important our website.

I will be running another contest for web page design as soon as the logo contest is finished and a winner has been selected. The web page design will be based around the winning logo from this contest.

IMPORTANT:

The logo should be easy to remember, and should have a theme that expresses Innovation, Technology, Software, Commitment, Customer Service. Our current logo which is a gear placed next to our company name. You can download our current logo from this [ link ].

We are moving to a Web 2.0 type platform soon, so please read the brief before submitting your entry. I am looking forward to your designs, and good luck to everyone.
