This is the 2nd time I've had the pleasure of working with egzote.com. The first contest in which they participated, their design was a finalist, and one of the best supplied. I reached out again to them for this new contest, and I selected their design as one of two winning designs. Their work was extraordinary. Different in every way from all other submissions, unique and brilliant. It was a pleasure and an honor to have them participate in our contest. I would urge anyone hosting a contest on 99Designs to reach out to them and beg them to join their design contest.

How vansloan started their logo design journey
I'm a web designer turned internet entrepreneur. I run a number of online projects and try to build lasting sites that really provide a ton of value to visitors.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Primarily male audience that is between 18 and 49. People who are looking for information on buying, selling, fixing, and maintaining cars. People who are not crazy car lovers will be visiting this site the most, so the logo can't be too car serious.
The logo will display in a theme that is similar to this link:
Bold colours that fit well over black and light gray and a simple web 2.0 design is what I'm looking for, with a splash of fun tossed in. Something that I can add a reflection and shadow to would be nice too.
There has to be some type of icon next to the word mark, but I'm completely open to the direction of the image.
The main key is simplicity... but also have fun with it. I'd really like something that doesn't look too corporate and has some originality.
