Andy (DXB) got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Architects firm - Rebrand
Check out Andy (DXB)'s Logo design contest…
3 years ago Dawson Architects was created. A husband and wife set up the company 2 years ago. Both are architects and have over 20 years experience with large organisations in South Africa, Namibia, Asia and Dubai. They are currently based and operating out of Dubai, UAE. The owners are both South African They wanted to create a small architect firm that specialises in a few areas; private residence design, SME projects. In addition to traditional architectural services, they offer a variety of additional design, construction, finishing and legal services. Over the last 24 months the company has flourished and grown significantly, with over 10 employees now, and on the verge of opening a second office space (adjacent to the current space). As a result of this expansion they would like to rebrand the company. There are at least 4 sub brands that are actively in operation. • Architects • A property snagging and finishing company • A vintage car/truck import business • Furniture/interiors/manufacturing division – using CNC techniques ** At this stage we are only looking at a brand for the motherbrand CODA The new brand name is CODA or coda. This is what I need a logo for. The idea behind CODA is as a brand that is generic but has a story and maintains some of the old identity. The old name was Dawson Architects or DA for short. We have included the DA into the new name; coDA Part of the reason behind this new name is the premise that everything the new company produces; architect services, importing bespoke hot rods or creating flat pack furniture, will come ‘Care Of DA’(CODA) I have attached the existing identity, the colour palette, typography etc. If we can I would like to incorporate some of the colours; mainly the accent green colour. But otherwise please feel free to suggest colours (they do like purple, for what its worth). Typography can be changed if you like, but nothing too elaborate. Sans Serif only.
Other color requirements
I'd like to explore the following colors: Greens: Growth, harmony and success. Let designers make suggestions:
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their logo design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Andy (DXB) collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Roniseven, was amazing. The level of communication was refreshing, and the speed that he got our designs back allowed us to award the winner in only a couple days.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
