What We Do

Public Ice Skating Rink in Big Bear Lake California

Industry

Sport

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Fun
#2 - Inviting
#3 - Invigorating

Our Target Audience:

Although open to all ages, we feel the focus will be on youths and young adults (ages 5 - 35). We will open an indoor ice skating rink in a shopping center with a Bavarian motif. The center is situated near Big Bear Lake, and is near an alpine lake and snow skiing areas. We will provide ice time for public skating, private skating and even youth hockey and training. The rink is not large enough for full scale hockey. We will have nice food and beverage options to enjoy while skating or while watching others skate. Appealing to tourists who stay anywhere from a day to a week will be important. The logo will appear on the sign on our building.

Color Preferences

We have a sense that a picture of a figure skater, a performing skater or pirrouting skater in conjunction with the words 'Ice Garten' would work well. The writing of the name itself will probably appear on our sign in brown lettering, but will not be so restricted in print or on our website.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

REMEMBER: THE KEY THING IS HOW THE LOGO APPEARS ON A SIGN IN A SHOPPING CENTER. HALF TONES IN THE LOGO AND ESPECIALLY IN THE LETTERING DO NOT WORK WELL. IT IS DIFFICULT TO HAVE A SYMBOL ABOVE OR BELOW THE LETTERING. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE BEAR LOGO, SKATER SYMBOLS WORK BEST TO ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER, BUT NOT ABOVE OR BELOW. WE LIKE THE BEAR SKATER THAT SOMEONE SUBMITTED, AS WELL AS THE SKATERS THAT OTHERS SUBMITTED. IN TERMS OF THE LOGO WITH THE BEAR SKATER, PLEASE ELIMINATE THE MOUNTAINS, AND USE THE LETTERING SAYING BIG BEAR LAKE THAT WAS IN THE 2ND SUBMITTAL (IE, MORE ALPINE/BAVARIAN). THANK YOU DESIGNERS. WE ARE GETTING THERE.

We have a sense that a picture of a figure skater, a performing skater or pirroueting skater in conjunction with the words 'Ice Garten' would work well, particularly with an Alpine/Bavarian Motif

Hello! Here are some hints for getting the most out of your contest:

~~ Rank designs daily -- this will encourage more participation.
~~ Ranking designs daily will also keep your contest from getting cluttered.
~~ The more feedback you provide, the better results you are going to see.
~~ Designers are not offended by "Not Interested"
~~ Over-use of "Not Interested" discourages participation.
~~ Ranking is a non-monetary means of showing appreciation for designers hard work.
~~ Designers earn points for ranked designs. We like to earn points.

1st place - 50 points
2nd place - 20 points
3rd place - 10 points
4-6th place - 5 points
7-10 place - 3 points

Note to designers, the bear skater concept was my original. The CH updated comments in the additional information section of the brief based on seeing my design - they used this area to refer to me making changes rather than place this in my comments section, they just didn't know to use the comments section in my design to make these changes. Just wanted raise this point to avoid any designers using the same concept.

Thanks

Hi RBrutoco! Only the designer ranked #1 in Judging Mode is allowed to upload additional entries. If you would like to see additional entries from designers, you can always rank the desired designer first, so that additional entries can be uploaded. Ranking can be be done several times - so if you'd like to see additional concepts from a multiple designers, it is possible.

Hi there. I've made the changes you were asking for and have a few designs to upload for you to look over and see what you think. During judging mode, only the number 1 ranked designer can upload anything. So if you'd like to see the new versions, could you place me in number one and I can upload. You can change between first placed designers until you reach your final decision.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks

Just a reminder to designers entering new entries as the contest has been extended. The bear skater concept was my original. The CH updated comments in the additional information section of the brief based on seeing my design - they used this area to refer to me making changes rather than place this in my comments section, they just didn't know to use the comments section in my design to make these changes. Just wanted raise this point to avoid any designers using the same concept so please avoid using skating bears in your design.

Thanks and good luck to all

what you want your logo to the concept of 'bears skater or skater player? " It is important to avoid the same concept as in complaining about BMF (BMF original skater bears) when additional information is only for BMFplease your update let other designers do not misunderstand your concept.....thanks sevi
