Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Our unicycles are Cool
#2 - Top quality products
#3 - Our product makes the customer the best

Our Target Audience:

location - world wide
age 12-35
Both male and female.

Our audience wants to associate to a cool sport image like Skateboarding, snowboarding, bmx...

We have two major segments to the brand:
Trials and freestyle riding

No clowns or circus reference.

Color Preferences

prefer a 2 color design with gray & the second color should be flexible in concept to be added to the unicycle frame colors.

no pink, purple, orange

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

It is really important that we can use this logo to go on the sides of the unicycle frames. This means they need to be 1.25inches by ____ wide. Longer not tall concepts are best.

We are also mainly looking to put the word "Nimbus" singlarly on the unicycles, with some graphics.

PS - particial to a grunge look but simple for printing.

#1 and #2 We are trying to get away from this font, since people often see the N as a D.

One purpose with the logo is to make some stickers to put at the frames at the unicycles.

Hi lottrup maybe you want to remove the reference to the font in your brief, before some other unsuspecting designers fall prey to it. I shall see if I can get some other options on the go, thanks for the feedback.

We have changed the name of the contest from "Nimbus Unicycles" to "Nimbus", because we dont need the word unicycle in the design.

Keep up the good work!

Hi, a question of a general nature:

Overall, which concept would you say that you'd like to be dominant 'Grunge' or 'Clouds' ?

Why I'm asking is because these two design concepts are working against each other somewhat. (Clouds reference towards clean, airy, calm, peaceful, whilst grunge is dirty, restless, moving and erratic.

It is mainly the Grunge look we are searching. The cool streetlike skater/snowboarding look.

my little advise to you. its not the best idea to have grungy main logo. almost all skate companies have a clean main logo and they alternate it to some oportunities (like shirts etc). clean logo is easy to use everywhere, but grungy is problematic sometimes. its your choise :)
