Slogan

Designed by us...with 100% respect & appreciation

What We Do

My organization (parent company- Brown Co. Engineering Ltd.) is projectized, working on long terms and short term projects in the field of engineering, fashion and agriculture and anything that floats our boat.
We are by profession engineers that develop our ideas, passions and interests into business ventures motivated by our entrepreneurial spirit, desire to succeed and assist and improve people’s lives.
This logo is for our current initiatives that involve (at this time) a sparkling swarovski studded crystal business and clothing line where we design sexy hot limited items for males and females and customise items by putting bling studs on anything from phones, furniture, clothes, cars, an aquaponics farm (hydroponics and aquaculture combined) and other ventures...
Our business is not limited at all in what we can do...once its legal of course...and we want to reflect that freeness and openness towards entrepreneurship!!!

Industry

Miscellaneous

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - icy, bling, pamper oneself, treat your self to it or use the concept to give as a gift,popular, must have it, I want it, must get it, affordable, attainable
#2 - clothing, sexy, unique clothing items
#3 - classy, exclusive, trendy,style, tasteful

Our Target Audience:

Young trendy professionals,
Parents with children who want the latest and greatest,
Club goes,
popular socialites,
Business/ Corporate,
Local Mobile Company,
Local Artistes,
Teenagers, Young Girls and Boys, Professionals and Career Driven Young and Expressive Individuals

Color Preferences

black (for the guys)
gold (for class )
dark indigo (blue)
hot trendy indian pink/ pink (for girls)

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

I am thinking like a mounting of rocks (swarovski crystals) to showing the effect of dashing and sparkling eye catching things...like the rocks are in a heap and being dashed of blown to show an nice slamming sparkling effect... like wooooooooooooooow

If designers can stick in reference to our parent company using the words "Brown Co. Engineering Ltd." in a subtle, soft dimmed or lighter effect...that would be neat.

I would want however to be able to use the logo with or without this reference...

Also for designs that use gradients, I would like to see a black, white and solid version as the use of gradient Logos on some media prove difficult...I would want the option to use the Logo with these options

dear ch,
until now your brief is clear enough. the problem is just the way these contests run. when you set the slider to 'complex', many designers are hoping for a bit bigger prize due complexity of the designs. good amount of prize attracts many designers to participate. i hope you understand this situation for your own benefit.
cheers... :)
