A friend recommended that I use 99 Designs to come up with a "logo" for my mining recruitment business. I had never heard of it and decided to give it a try. I was new to the whole concept and confused people with my brief which I tweaked as designs started to come in that weren't what I had in mind. I was conveniently able to extend the competition and clarify my needs. Marlene's very first design had the sophistication and characteristics I was looking for, It was so easy to communicate and ask questions so that we could end up with a perfect logo for my business. I am really impressed with the process, the organization of the website and the quality of designs. I would not hesitate to recommend this experience to others! Thanks so much!

Update - I am looking for a graphic that symbolizes the mining sector - an example is a miners hard hat with light on it but I am looking for something more creative than that. So far people have interpreted my request as a need for a rework of my logo block or banner, that is not what I am seeking - I just want a symbolic graphic that represents the mining sector that I can use on banners etc that is uniquely mine.
I want a graphic that speaks to the mining industry - classy and professional - it could be multidimensional to accommodate the various specialties within the mining sector - the graphic would be independent of the samples provided - something that can be inserted like a logo. (Geology/Engineering/Metallurgy/Maintenance/Safety etc) as well as we make placements at the executive VP and C level. Our Brand is white font on Red, I have attached samples of items used previously.
In this instance I am looking for a graphic to break up a banner ad - (see banner concept beta.jpg) where I have the company and slogan on the right and a comment on the left - In the center a graphic that draws the eye and speaks to the mining sector - this is a graphic I could use on business cards etc in future. For example I had considered clip art images from microsoft but they were too cartoonish.
