edmund.humenberger got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Logo design for an electronic board and programming tool
Check out edmund.humenberger's Logo design contest…
enabling open souce FPGA solutions
icoBoard is a project to manufacture and distribute an electronic board on which a free programmable chip (and FPGA) is mounted. The advantage of an FPGA in comparison to other digital chips is that the FPGA can be configured to be any circuit. It could be a motorcontroller, it could be a graphics engine, it could be a CPU, it could be a encrypto engine, it could be a bitminer. There are many such boards as the icoBOARD, but our board is the first which is programmable by opensource tools. With the icoboard we release open source softwaretools which make it possible to programm our FPGA on the icoboard. To be able to do that, we had to reverseengineer the FPGA-chip. Usually only software from the manufacturer of the FPGA chip can be used to configure the chip as the inner working of these chips are not documented by the manufacturer. You can see our motivation at http://ww.icoboard.org Here you can see one icoBOARD on top of a RaspberryPi board https://instagram.com/p/9OXDdHq4MW/ Additionally an icoBOARD can connect to a lot of other devices throught its high number of connections. What could be connected? any kind of sensors (temperature, time, frequency,sound,presure, lenth, duration, time,... ), motors, radios, valves, relais, Lasers, any acutators, other output devices like displays, LED panels. Almost anything which can be connected electrically. The icoboard has several connectors to connect PMOD out of the box. http://digilentinc.com/Products/Catalog.cfm?NavPath=2,401&Cat=9&CFID=19719756&CFTOKEN=6129661df60da72e-FB88CC2C-5056-0201-02CC2359557B69FD The target group of the logo are mainly hard core hacker, electronic engineers, low level programmers (no Internet Solution Programmers). The logo should work in colour om grey and in few colours to be able to stitch it on T-Shirts. We want to print or stitch it on T-Shirts. As we are from Austria, it would be an option to use an ibex as a logo animal in some kind if it would fit. This is up to the designer. https://www.google.at/search?q=ibex&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAWoVChMIroD7i-zxyAIVizgUCh3wjQ25&biw=1920&bih=1063 This project is much about "open source" and about "open" as we open up the FPGA chips which were closed up to now by the manufacturers. The logo should not refer to the concept of a "board" as the same logo should later be used for the name "icoTC" which is a collection of open source software tools. http://icoboard.org/icotc.html The slogan should not be integral part of the logo, but should be able to be left out. The icoBoard is an add on (=hat) to a RaspberryPI which is adressed to tinkerers and was sold over 4 Million times. https://www.raspberrypi.org/ If possible, free fonts should be used so that no additional font licensing is required. Free fonts you can get at https://www.google.com/fonts Please understand that the icon must function in small size (like a Twitter profile image) and in large size.
Other color requirements
I'd like to explore the following colors: 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.
edmund.humenberger 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!
Very professional, listening to each of our needs, very responsive, we were very satisfied with the service.
We highly recommend it, another 1000 thank you for your work, AND FOR YOUR PROFESSIONALISM
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
