martin Mx got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Create a logo featuring a raven
Check out martin Mx's Logo design contest…
We are a news service, helping people to find the best news articles and getting a complete overview of what is happening in the world. Our symbol is the raven, so the logo should be an illustration of a raven. The symbolism of the raven in our case is intelligence, watchfulness, information gathering, independence and freedom. In ancient Nordic mythology Odin had two ravens, Hugin and Munin, who each day flew over the world and then reported back to Odin. This is one of the reasons we chose the raven as symbol and it could be a nice concept for a logo to include two ravens. Possible additional symbols to use: Things related to news, like a globe symbol to symbolize "world news".
