What We Do

The base idea is my blog about opiate dependence; including treatment options, the science of addiction, and the personality factors that contribute to addiction... I want to sell t-shirts and mugs; ideally two people wearing the shirts would see each other and recognize that they have opiate dependence in common, but other people would not know what is going on.

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - We are not alone-- there are many of us hidden in the shadows, so don't feel alone
#2 - We are successful people with a shitty disease, so don't feel ashamed
#3 - We are as 'recovered' as any 12-stepper!

Our Target Audience:

age 18-55; education from HS to college to professional school. male and female, US audience; risk-takers, people who used to party but now are happy to be out of that scene; people who tend to treat themselves medically; have little respect for drug laws, who tend to experiment with things... not religious, focus on more educated crowd.

Wonder if any of these are going to be ranked?

I'm really sorry for the delay, everyone-- this is my first time with this contest, and I am very greatful for the help so far.

A couple things... The one that I have ranked number one-- would it be possible to vary the color a bit? The violet isn't my favorite (I can't remember what I suggested at the start, but for a t-shirt the purple won't cut it). Would it be possible to try blue or green-- say have the words blue, and the dialog bubble and quotes green, or black?

The second choice-- I like the 'face'; my wife didn't see it, and I'm wondering about having dots for pupils in the eyes, or taller, more narrow letters? Or maybe little eyebrows?

The other comment about the second one, and about all of them, is that I do not manufacture Suboxone but rather provide information about the medication and about addiction. For the second choice could the words 'talk zone' be larger or darker-- for all of them, a way to have more emphasis on the 'talk zone' part of the name. I am also wondering if it should say '.com' or dot com'... the logo is about a web site, although the name alone should prompt a google search so it isn't a big deal, unless it happened to fit into the design in a useful way.

thank you all very much!

Well, I did try to make something original with this so usual element...

To stand out against all those speech bubbles:

I'm assuming from your website that you've decided on a logo? Why not end the contest early?

Hi again,

I have been blown away by the talent and creativity from everyone-- this is my first time 'using' logo tournament, and my only regret is that I don't have better use for the designs that have been entered.

Suboxone will be going generic this year, and I don't know the future of the word 'Suboxone'-- whether it will be forever associated with buprenorphine, the new treatment for opiate dependence, or whether a new product will take the place of Suboxone... or whether the chemical name, 'buprenorphine', will enter the vocabulary of those seeking treatment (or maybe 'bupe'). This is one reason I have been slow to pick a design-- I have been trying to decide whether the emphasis on the name 'Suboxone' is a mistake. On my blog, I asked for some help choosing from what I thought were the 'finalists'... and then some more people sent in designs that I really liked. I don't agree with the choice of the readers of my blog-- I like the more colorful designs that de-emphasize the word 'suboxone'-- but I always recognize that I have no idea of what is popular. My experiences in high school made that clear many years ago!

I want to thank everyone who entered, and ask that you consider helping me again in the future, if I come back with a new name for my blog-- 'bupe forum' or something like that. As for ending the contest early, I still have not completely decided-- I keep going back and forth, and I do not feel completely bound by the choice of my readers. I will try to make an pick by Monday night, and end the contest officially at that time.

Thanks again.
