What We Do

We are an investment company that primarily invests in residential and commercial real estate. However, we also have investments in Restaraunts, tanning salons, software programming and computer perhipheral manuafacturing. We invest in anything that makes sense financially.

Also, the company was named after my 3 daughters. Each letter represents the first initial of their first name.

I dont have a slogan right now. If someone can think of something catchy please add it in...

Industry

Miscellaneous

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - financial strength
#2 - solid performance
#3 - integrity

Our Target Audience:

Target audience is anyone that has money and wants to invest in any of the many projects that we have going on,

Color Preferences

I am open to anything... however, I do like the silver /platinum and black look.
Black,orange, grey Can be used seperately
Red, white and blue can be used together.
Black & Red

Black and grey
orange & black
green with any matching colors.

Very open.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

maybe something with a skyline in the back ground or something that shows we are totally diversified for any type of investment. Such as tech, web, real estate.
Also because the company was named after my 3 daughters having the logo have something in a group of three to represent them would be great. Like 3 objects,, 3 buildings, 3 shapes etc. It would be nice but not totally necessary.
I would stay away from rounded or bubbly type logos.

The logo should reflect luxury, wealth and financial strength.
Also, I dont have a slogna, but if anyone can think of something catchy please run it by me. Not necessary but who knows!

I appreaciate all the hard work. Some of these are outstanding!.... I know that there can be only one winner however there are many designers submitting. Because of this, I am committing to ranking as many designs as possible. Even the ones that we have placed in the not interested part. I am confident we will rank at least the top 50 designs. I hope this helps and also shows our gratitude towards the communiy.
We have 2 other contests that we will submit once this one is over.
Thank you.

That is how I feel. I have asked other people the same question if they thought it was based off the other and everyone I asked agreed it was close. Intentional or not that is my perception and I want to stay away from that. However even if it wasnt. I still prefer the ones that I have ranked in my top 10 over those designs. When the contest is finished, I will rank as many in the not interested category as well so some of those will move back over to interested.

I apologize for not ranking the past 2 days. I had to travel across the country. I am back and will rank and pick my winner.
Just a note. I will rank as many as possible even the submissions that are currently in the not interested column some of those will move back across so they get points.

Thanks!

I really appreaciate everyones efforts. Please look for more contests to be run by our sister companies, BKS Developments and BKS Productions. These should be posted within the next week as well.

I have selected the winner. I want to thank everyone for their hard work. It was an extremely difficult decision and their were a quite a few designs that were worthy.
I ranked almost every design so at least everyone got some points for their submission.

Thank you all!
