Please keep the following notes in mind when coming up with your concept.
We would prefer to not have tacky icons that you would normally associate with the cleaning industry, unless it's done in a REALLY creative way or there is a unique spin to the concept.
Below are just suggestions of some font that we feel are decent. However, you may use any font you want that works best with your concept.
- Century Gothic (+/- web)- ITC Avant Garde Gothic Book- URW Gothic- Gibson Semi Bold (+/- web)- Geometric 706 Black (+/- web)
The symbology can tie in with the theme of the domain in a clever or subtle fashion, but please do not go with icons that are "cheesy" or something out of a clipart. We have seen quite a few of those and would prefer to stay away from those.
The GOAL of the logo is to communicate 2 things:
1 -- Brand Recall: We want to have an icon/symbol/effect that is unique enough that when a viewer sees it, they will instantly recall the BRAND "cleaning.com" while at the same time;
2 -- Theme Connection: It should be subtle, but familiar enough to have a viewer INSTANTLY understand and connect the logo to the concept of "cleaning services."
Ultimately, that is what we're looking for in EACH submission -- those two key principles.
If your design has been eliminated, it is usually because it didn't fit the above two criterion either in terms the font choice or the symbol selection.
Please review the "Description of the organization and its target audience" and "Contest subtitle" prior to submitting your design. Remember, we are a marketplace that will connect customers looking for cleaning services to cleaning professionals and/or maids that can perform those jobs.
Logos We Like
We like these logos because of how the concept as a whole connect to the brand through the graphic and typeface -- please understand the underlying principals behind why it works and apply it to cleaning.com, rather than trying to force fit their idea into your concept for cleaning.
