How Jakob Magiera started their logo design journey

Company name

Auctober

Overview

I love using software and I want to create software that people love using. Software is a tool in our hands that should give us satisfaction as we use it. Auctober is such a tool.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Small to medium volume ebay sellers who want a no-nonsense easy-to-use tool that automates the boring and cumbersome tasks of writing emails, invoices, etc. and/or who are fed up with slow-loading web-based tools. Auctober users love selling and don't want a tool to get in their way. Rather, the tool makes them love what they do even more!

Requirements

Content & Layout:

- Must contain a maple leaf and the word Auctober
- The maple leaf will be used as an application icon so it must still be recognizable at 16x16 pixels.
- The leaf and the text may overlap, as long as I can still extract the leaf to use as an icon
- Feel free to improvise with the maple leaf, can be abstract

Look & Feel:

Since the product name is a play on words with "auction" and "october", I would tend to go with autumn colors, but the autumn theme shouldn't be so obvious as to distract from the fact that Auctober is a software product. If in doubt, rather stress the software product theme than the autumn one.

I will favor designs that are simplistic yet powerful over ones that try to awe you by a lot of "special effects". Try to refrain from using gradients as much as possible.

These are the old logos:

The new Auctober (currently in Beta stage): http://www.auctober.de/beta/forum/s…e_logo.gif

Logos I like:
Sun Microsystems ( http://www.sun.com ) - this is just genious, of course it strikes a chord with my geek-nature :-)
Adidas ( http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped…s-logo.svg )
Energy XT ( http://energy-xt.com )

Format:
SVG format, or other vector format that can be imported into Inkscape, since I do not own Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator.
