What We Do

We are an integrated formulator, manufacturer, marketer, distributor and retailer of branded nutritional dietary supplements and other natural products sold primarily to and through domestic health and natural food stores – specializing in ‘over-the-counter’ skin care products and acne treatments.

This logo is for our flagship product called Prostasis. Prostasis™ is a comprehensive, all-in-one acne treatment solution that is designed to cleanse, tone, and heal the skin. Prostasis™ literally means “For Balance” which is exactly what the product accomplishes within the body. Prostasis™ is also another name for the outside entrance to a temple. The product is unique in that it is an 'over-the-counter' anti-acne pill. The nutraceutical acne therapy offered by Prostasis™ effectively targets and is specifically designed to increase the body's resistance and ability to adapt to stress, trauma, anxiety and fatigue. Prostasis™ is a complex formula, shown to work extremely well by enhancing the bioavailability of specific nutrients and the body’s ability to fight acne from the inside out.

Thanks to everyone that has and is planning to submit for this logo. We are definitely not married to any particular idea, concept or color scheme at this stage, but would really like to see some creative ideas that are way outside of the box. We like to see people that can create in broad strokes, and then refine an idea. Imagery is fine. Would love to see something that really stands out and eye catching. This logo for the product needs to be able to stand out and appeal to a broad demographic audience.. in the younger demo its a pretty even M/F split, although historically this type of product has been targeted to a mainly female audience. We want to be able to also appeal to a male audience as well as a slightly older audience. (Adult onset acne impacts people, mainly female between the ages of 25-40.) We have the same demographic as Proactiv topical - except that we use a oral treatment to fight acne. The name and product are all about balance - and although this is an over the counter product - it has a slightly medical/ medicinal feel to it.

May also consider using a simple tag - similar to Prostasis - Acne Solution / For faces, for bodies, for life.. etc. Perhaps include something about 'for balance' - the meaning of Prostasis. A little cheesy, but we hope you get the general idea.

We will check in regularly to update opinions and refine concepts! Happy Designing!

We would prefer to have the logos in a vector format and a number of other usable formats as well as in greyscale and sizes for the deliverables. Please keep this in mind.

After some debate, we have decided to temporarily extend the contest. To quote a friend, 'Looks like we have a lot of entries and thats awesome!! We like one or two but still not feeling the big" Yes! Thats it!" However.. we are pretty close on a couple as well. So, the moment we make a final decision or feel we've found the right 'designer' that can give us our final product, we will end the contest early and work with the final designer to make revisions. Thanks for being patient creative and keep on designing. We would love to see something very different than we have to date.. show us what you've got!

A word of advice.. there seems to be a common theme among many of you in your designs. Please take note that just because one person submitted one a certain way, doesn't mean that we necessarily want or even like the concept. Come up with something unique and original if you want to catch our eye.

Here's an idea.. we'd love to see someone that can give us a logo / design that gives the viewer a sense of the balance in chaos and order or the dichotomy of modern medicine/ technology/ microbiology - and the natural elements/ plants/ age old eastern medicine/ homeopathic/ herbal supplements, etc.

We'd like to draw out some imagery that will help us to draw these ideas together and give the buyers of our product the sense of the upper echelon of technological advance and understanding in medicine - and yet still very much apart of the elements available to us in nature. To help us heal. To help our bodies find balance and homeostasis. Simple in use and function / Complex in technology and design. The product - PROSTASIS - means literally "FOR BALANCE". It uses natural elements that give the body the ability to adapt to external stressors, helps to balance levels of hormones, and gives the body the things it needs to heal and to grow healthy skin - from the inside out. We believe that acne is not the problem, its a symptom.

Please feel free to submit questions directly to our group through private message if you need some additional information or just want to bounce some ideas off us before you submit. We definitely do not want to waste anyone's time and want you to feel that any effort you make for us can and will be rewarded.

We will end the contest immediately upon finding the design that is right for us and would like to continue to use that designer and their talent for ongoing projects. Show us your best.

If you are an artist/ designer and have submitted an entry into this contest - please do NOT be alarmed by the ranking. This does NOT reflect our final decision and is merely so that we can more easily visually judge the entries.

Also, if you are an artist/ designer and have submitted two or more entries that are redundant - please understand that there is only so much space in order to organize entries and we want to give every entry a fair consideration. So, if you have submitted a significant number of entries that are very similar - please don't take it personally when we put them in the 'Not interested' area.

One last note - if you're a designer trying to submit work - you have a much better chance at getting our attention if you actually spell our name correctly.

Thanks for all your hard work - for those that are still finishing up their designs, please get them in before the US holiday weekend 4th of July as we will be doing our best to make a final decision quickly.

Kind regards,

Prostasis Management

Thank you to all the designers that spend an extra few minutes really putting some thought into their concepts. It always helps when you give us a little summary of your idea and what youre trying to convey with the approach. People that do this get our attention much more than those that don't. As you may or may not know, we're doing this contest, but also very seriously considering using the chosen designer for a significant amount of future work.

Also, please forgive the sometimes slow response to your submissions and comments. This tournament system doesn't give us any notification of feedback from designers unless we actively search for it or unless we have a private email.

Hope you can understand. Last but not least - again, please do not be disappointed or alarmed at the ranking system - we are just organizing submissions for easiest visual judging and it has no significant bearing on our interest in your design.

We'll be making a final decision shortly. Thank you again for all your hard work.
