The logo needs to seem friendly enough to attract someone with no technical skills while still commanding the confidence of the corporate R&D budget.
We'd like it to be simple and iconic, in the sense that for the broadest possible range of viewers it immediately and memorably conjures up:
• Cutting edge technology
• Do-it-yourself spirit
• Friendly collaboration
• "Philadelphia identity" (Benjamin Franklin, the Liberty Bell, etc.)
Please visit our website for some images of our facility and more details on our business: http://www.nextfabstudio.com.
The winning logo will be used in the following:
• Selecting interior finish colors for our facility
• All ad/web materials (including print, signage, videos)
• Messenger bags/hats/t-shirts/work aprons
• Member ID badges
The winner should provide the logo in one of the following formats:
Adobe Illustrator (.ai)
Adobe Photoshop (.psd)
Contact us to ask about alternative formats.
Suggestions (only - no licenses) for fonts to be paired with the logo will be appreciated as well.
Please do not use any stock images or clip art in the logo - submissions should be entirely new creations of the designer.
10 finalists will be selected by NextFab Studio management. The winner will be selected from among the finalists by a jury of prominent Philadelphia-area professionals.
The winning designer will be engaged for subsequent graphic design work with NextFab Studio, and will be offered a free membership to our facility.
For this reason, submissions by designers located in Philadelphia are preferred.
