Industry

Service Industries

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Professional
#2 - Modern/relevant
#3 - Energetic, upbeat

Our Target Audience:

#1 Company owners, executives, and hiring managers who have the power/authority/resources to utilize a recruiting firm and also the need to employ highly skilled professionals.
#2 Skilled professionals interested in learning about employment opportunities or those actively seeking a new position who make at least $75,000 a year

Color Preferences

For color, I'm thinking green, black, gray, and white. I'm pretty partial to the clean feel that black, gray, and white portrays but am willing to consider other colors than green as the "pop" color.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

Centrifuge Recruiting Services is intended to play off of (at least in part) the idea of centrifugal force. Utilizing a design element that conveys motion, action, force, etc might work...especially in a circular pattern of some sort. I'd like the main focus in incorporating the business name to be on the word 'centrifuge'. I'm open to that being the only text but think I'd prefer that 'recruiting services' also be included. Though we currently recruit for the medical industry, I don't want that incorporated in the logo so that we can utilize the design once we branch our our services.

Thank you for the new submissions. I've decided that with the sort of designs I've seen so far, I only like the images wherein the circular element is worked into the text, not just sitting above it. The colors are great but I think I'd like to see some variety from just the circular dots and straightforward text. I'm still partial to #7 as far as the dotted circular element and text. Could I see some new ideas? Ones that take a whole different approach would be great appreciated. I really like the work done on lisa b marshall's contest for example. Maybe there could be some toying around with boxes or different fonts or even some more imagery...Let me know your thoughts!

Thanks! Have a great day!

Another thought--I'd love to see some sepia tones as complete contrast to this idea.

I'm liking #17 though I'm thinking it might look a little better if the green dot over the i was just a little bit smaller. I'd still love to see some completely different concepts as well!!

I love and appreciate the variety that's starting to come in...these are all so great I'm having a hard time deciding which direction to go. I like the idea of experimenting with the coloring as in #33 and #34. Though I was sure initially that I was set on the clean, modern look and feel part of me is really liking the sort of browns and whites and creams represented here. Could we take those colors and sort of skew in the other direction...maybe with some script and potentially even forgetting the circular element altogether?

I really like the implied motion in Orion's #31 and #32 as well. I like the font as well if we end up going with the more modern brand.

Thanks! Keep em coming! :)

I've also found it very helpful when the designs are submitted along with the inverted color scheme. Thanks!

I took some time to rank and organize the entries this morning. I moved several over to the 'not interested' space. This does not mean I didn't find interest in there--more so that other ones were more appealing to me and I needed to move some out of the way for analysis sake.

With that said, I have been visiting with several people over the last couple days and realized that. though I like the more complicated logos better and am naturally drawn to them, for my purposes a more simplistic look is the direction I need to go. We all feel that #1 and #2 really give that fortune 500, professional feel that will work long term. I am still interested in seeing what you all come up with and thank you very much for your hard work!

I'd like to see the font from #62 with the concept from #35 and see how that works together.

I really like the concepts in #64 and #65 but can't help but feel that it's a bit cheesy in both. Could you play with that a little?

I love the new concepts! Deciding between so many great options is going to be the hard part now!
