tap got their new logo design by running a design contest:
New Aircraft Company looking for a sleek, sharp logo
Check out tap's Logo design contest…
Looking for a really creative logo. We are trying to create new owner flown personal aircraft, metaphorically: the i-pod of aviation. The main feelings it will generate: 1. Sleekness, 2. Intuitive usage, 3. Extremely high quality, 4. Precision, 5. User-friendliness, 6. Fun to fly, 7. Inexpensive to operate. Are you upto it? Expect frequent feedback. Please no Web2.0 type of logos. PLEASE read the Brief for a detailed description.
What's your vision?
- I'm in the process of setting up a new startup company to make the best personal owner flown light aircraft in the world.- The concepts with which I identify the new company are: Highest quality, safe, sleek, efficient, comfortable, spacious, affordable, intuitively easy and fun to fly aircraft. - Think of this as creating the i-pod of aviation: bringing sleek, sexy, beautiful, functional, intelligent and affordable aviation to the market. - Our planes are targeted to various segments and thus the logo should appeal to all those:- Women and men from 17yrs of age to 70yrs of age. - People interested in flying who have not had the resources to consider flying. - Older people who are challenged by the high cockpit workloads but want to continue flying a simpler and more intuitive plane. - Younger people who want a safe sleek airplane that is strong enough to be thrown about in light aerobatics. - Middle aged people who want to use the aircraft for short distance economic and fast travel. - We'll use the logo on visiting cards, merchandise, letterhead, and website (including favicon). Depending on our needs, we may run a new contest for CSS templates based on the logo we choose at a later date. - NASHERO is a single uppercase word
- BIGGEST REQUIREMENTS- SIMPLICITY - ELEGANCE - BEAUTY - DESCRIPTION of our character and feelings. - I want you to come up with a creative design that focuses on the icon-logo. - Its not necessary that the logo has any airplane image in it, smooth sleek curves representing airflow may be enough - The colors and style are left to your discretion, it should be creative enough like our company. - I'll need vector formats, .ai, photoshop, gimp and svg. For the print, it should have pantone colors. - Some logos that I like, even though they are not by related companies:- One of the coolest logos of an engineering company is that of Dassault Systemes. - MSC-Software logo is also cool. - Although we are not in that league nor are we going that way, but I like the corporate logo of Boeing.
- No rehashed Web2.0 icons. - I don't like logos of any of the current aircraft manufacturers except, Boeing's. Examples of airplane companies and logos styles to absolutely AVOID are:- This one is perhaps the best of the lot and could be called pretty, except its in black, and too thick. - I fail to see how this relates to planes. - Columbia went bust and was picked up by cessna, this is their old logo. I don't quite like it. - The tecnam logo: www.tecnam.com - Eclipse has their logo, which is difficult for me to understand. - Epic planes are very pretty, but the logo does not cut it. - Diamond Logo has ways to go.
