travis fd got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Design a logo for a custom firearm manufacturer
Check out travis fd's Logo design contest…
Holly worked up a really good design brief, so that we can get that logo contest started and start inviting designers to it. F5 manufacturing is known for the creation of quality high capacity drum magazines and the Can Cannon, we are an industry leader in creativity, innovation and quality with one of a kind patented gun products. At F5 manufacturing we are dedicated to advancing a multitude of rifle platforms through cutting edge design and technology. “F5” is a category of a storm. The idea is that he is taking the market by storm with this new F5 mfg brand. Every product we manufacture is skillfully designed, machined and assembled by American hands. F5 Manufacturing quality is proudly changing the landscape of 9MM, 5.56 and 7.62 rifle platforms and moving beyond the status quo. They don’t sell guns, they sell custom accessories for professionals. They pride themselves on quality.
A few design notes: No current logo We would like to be able to laser engrave the icon portion of the logo onto the parts The new logo needs to include an icon/image that can stand alone from the text. The new logo will need to work well in color (including reds) but also well as a solid white or black logo. The new logo should scale well through all viewports and display sizes. The icon portion of the new logo should make for a good favicon design for the browser Experiment with fonts. Any font chosen should have clean, modern lines that suggest technology and innovation Design themes and inspiration: Strength Technology Speed Custom accessories Security Most security sites and gun sites use a lot of dark backgrounds We are including the browning logo because we love the icon portion of the logo and the clean and techy feel that the font and icon convey. The logo works very well as an icon or text. The icon without the logo text would hopefully be a good stand along image that could be laser engraved into the products. We are including the Xproducts logo because we think this icon also does a good job of conveying strength and security. Like the blocky letters and like that it works well as an icon as well We are also including the Fortis logo. We like the idea of the shield and strength and security behind it. The icon part of this logo works very well too. The F5 in our logo should be able to stand out like this. Overall in this logo contest we are very open to your creative ideas. We want a logo that is clean and simple, recognizable and synonymous with security, strength, and the firearm industry.
