ToughStuff got their new logo design by running a design contest:
*** ToughStuff ***
Check out ToughStuff's Logo design contest…
We are a social enterprise whose mission it is to sell very affordable products, that bring economic, social and environmental returns, to low-income consumers in the developing world. Our vision is to lift millions of people out of poverty through enterprise.
What's your vision?
We are actually looking for a Brand identity. It is certainly a logo (and associated artwork) but may be the basis for a branding system. the logo will illustrate the quality and durability of our products, (solid, tough, reliable, robust, appropriate) which are specifically designed for our target consumer group (very low income people in Africa (but probably later other countries including India)). The primary audience are end consumers in the developing world (low level of education, mostly non or poorly English-speaking). The secondary audience are businesses with whom we will be buying and selling, and intermediaries in both the western and developing world (high level of education, mostly English-speaking) (incl. China). For this latter audience we want to communicate credibility, reliability and professionalism. Our Values - Honest - Positive - Hopeful - Accountable - Respectful - Professional Our Characteristics - Adaptive - Energetic - Enterprising - Robust - Determined - Focussed - Innovative
