First and foremost we're looking for CREATIVITY and something recognisable and cool. We want to get across that MAULER is a world class DJ (which he is!) so design must express quality.
We're after a UNIQUE design, no re-hashing of other DJs stuff please, but of course get some inspiration from around the web.
Mauler and I had a lot of ideas when we were discussing the logo and really as long as we get something that looks like it had a lot of effort and thought put into it we'll use it.
We would like you to integrate a drawn rendition of Mauler (see photo), keep it simple. A pair of headphones might be good too! Please don't use the goofy pose in the photo. Maybe a cool symbol on the sweater/tshirt too?
Logo must have the text: MAULER in it, fairly obvious. This will be the title of the website. We're open to how you want to do this.
Keep the following in mind:
- Clean lines
- Bold (as in the logo, not the font (although you can use a bold font if you like!))
- More wide than tall please.. tall logos are a pain to work with. Think roughly 2:1 ratio.
- Maybe integrate the Union Jack (UK flag), up to you! Please keep this subtle if you do choose to do it.
- Please DON'T put a baseball cap on the mauler character.
- Cool, logo must be cool.. not lame :)
These are fairly loose requirements - if you can do something good we'll pay for it, simple as that.
We will DEFINITELY need the logo to be in vector format (.eps), no raster parts please. Please include a big .jpg format of the image, and if possible I'd quite like an .svg version too.
Creativity is king, logos showing a lot of effort / original ideas will be more likely to win.
Good luck! :) Any questions at all, please just ask. I will get back to you asap.
