kjersti.skeie got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Simple, clean, fun & playful new logo needed for Latin Dance Festival in Norway
Check out kjersti.skeie's Logo design contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
We are a non-profit dance school in Trondheim, Norway, that hosts an annual latin dance festival. This will be the 6th year and we want a logo which contains "Latin Weekend" and clearly brands it to our city. Target audience: people from 18-65 with all types of backgrounds and ethnicities gather to enjoy salsa, bachata, kizomba and other dances.
Other color requirements
Two colors: White or Black and contrast colour
We want to use the silhouettes of landmarks/buildings from Trondheim to tie/connect Latin Weekend to our town. We would like to incorporate all or some of the following landmarks and here is a prioritized list: -Nidarosdomen -Olav Tryggvason -Bryggene i Trondheim -Gamle Bybro -Kristiansten festning -Gløshaugen -Tyholttårnet -Nidelven -Munkholmen -Granåsen You will find photos of the landmarks/buildings cited above, attached. We do not think it will bee a good idea to incorporate to many. That can look a bit untidy and we fear that the logo will not work that well in smaller formats if there are too many buildings and details. Hence we think that it is important to interpret a few buildings and keep their distinctiveness, but maybe remove some details to make a more light and airy design. If you want a better impression of the town you can follow this link and watch a short clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeDgdivNlMc&feature=youtu.be PLACEMENT OF THE TEXT: • It would be nice if we could have some options where "Latin Weekend" is written on one line and where it is split in two lines. • The buildings could be above, under or around the text. COLOR: When it comes to colors we are not sure what would look the best. We do not want a too flamboyant (not to flashy) look as we prefer a cleaner design so that the different elements (buildings+text) stand out. However, we can say that we do not want a too dark and heavy design. Also we want to use it every year, so it should be something that will work well on a poster, as the poster design changes every year. ATTACHMENTS: We've also added some examples of logos from other festivals to illustrate how this can be done. This is only meant as inspiration. WHAT WE LIKE: *We want the logo to communicate Trondheim (the town where the festival is held). • We prefer a design that doesn't look hand drawn, but is more modern and graphic. • When it comes to font, we don't want anything too square or too curly, but still playful. • It should be on the bold side so that is easy to read and notice. WHAT WE DISLIKE: *We do NOT want a couple dancing. This logo is to brand the dance festival to our town. We will make a poster that communicates that Latin Weekend is about dancing. Dancing is NOT something we want the logo to communicate.
