Pwang got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Create the next logo for PyData
Check out Pwang's Logo design contest…
PyData is the name of the Python for Data Analysis community, and we'd like to have a logo that can be used for this. Most prominently, we will use this logo for the twice-annual PyData Conference that we organize. The community is an active and geeky crowd of programmers, data scientists, statisticians, and domain experts of all stripes. We would like the design to evoke deep technical competency at an intersection of math, big data, and coding.
Logo types to explore
We have attached our logo we've been using, but are not happy with. We do not like the colors in it, nor the disconnectedness of the shapes. We have also attached a screenshot of some of the logos we like in the Marketplace. Although most of these use patterns instead of a simple, unified shape, this is not a requirement for our logo design. More than anything, the logo should evoke data, data analysis, programming/code, and the like. DataGotham, for instance, has nice imagery which makes the Manhattan skyline look like a bar chart, built out of code (http://www.datagotham.com/). There is not enough room in a simple logo for this kind of texture, but this is the direction to think along. The logo can be simple or have a complex texture, but in either case, it should look geometrically unified. In general, squares/rectangles are going to be more evocative of arrays or matrices of data, but circles, polygons, and other shapes could work if executed well. The logo will need to be used as a black or white image and still look good.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Logo design starts at HK$2,399.

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.
Pwang 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!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
