Ian’s got a great design sense and got the logo almost dead on the first submission. Throughout the contest he has been very quick to feedback and extremely thorough.
Delighted!! This is the second time this designer has captured our vision perfectly! "Ink" is very easy to work with and accommodating. We highly recommend this designer!
Very responsive to suggestions, and incorporated the changes quickly.
The work that we had done with Doie was incredible. All of his concepts were professional, clean, crisp, bold, and creative. He was great at responding to changes that we requested, and was wonderful at interpreting our advice and creative vision and turning it into a wonderful image. Highly recommend his work!
A great designer with very good ideas. Open to suggestions and a very pleasant cooperation.

Logo types to explore
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
-Interested in modern, sans serif font styles only.
-Keen on a simple palette of only 2-3 colours, which will translate well into monochrome use as well as positive/negative variations
-Prefer vibrant/contrasting colours to soft/pastel tones
-Circular / elliptical designs are of particular interest
-Logo needs to capture a difficult balance between cute and dangerous (e.g. claws and/or teeth could be important)
-Attached example logo was the only thing (remotely) close sourced from the internet
-Another option is to show a bear yawning (thus can see teeth)
-Also interested in the option of adding the word "graphics" underneath "SleepingBear" to see how it looks
-The files I need will be: Print file format .ai (CMYK), and
Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)
