100% Satisfied. The final logo is a visualization of my brief. Thonto is highly talented designer. Through studying my brief and making simple adjustments in the contest, he was able to create that exact logo I wanted. It could not be more perfect for what I wanted for this project. This was the first time I used 99 Designs and I was thrilled with the process. I received many quality designs from a variety of designers. Through using the Polls and Presentation features in the program, I was able to share my favorite designs with my family, friends and business inner circle for their feedback. I was happy to hear what I already knew, my final logo was the top choice and my inner circle confirmed that. I am already working on a 2nd project with Thonto. I can't recommend him highly enough. Thank you for this great design. It is the perfect way to kick off my new flyfishing social network company!
How Joel Friedlaender started their logo design journey
Red Guava is a brand new software company that makes amazing software that is simple to use.
Red Guava has a very fresh outlook on software development, using the latest technologies (Ruby on Rails 3.0) and the latest software development methodologies (Agile development/Scrum).
We also like to have fun, we enjoy our work, and have a good time making software.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our target audience is quite varied, anywhere from medium sized to large businesses. There is no specific industry that is targeted, as we develop custom software solutions.
We are looking for a logo to be used on our website, business cards, and other stationary.
As our company name is Red Guava, we expect to have red in the logo, however ultimately will need to have two versions of the logo, so that one can work on a red background too.
The logo needs to look professional, but convey a very fresh and modern feel. It would be great if it can be a little bit fun also.
We are open to any variations, but typically like logos where the two words are joined together, but different font/color/something to have them stand out from each other (like http://www.freshview.com/).
