The Spreadshirt Open Logo project has entered its voting stage. After about 2800 submissions the contest has been narrowed down to just 13 entries though Spreadshirt has threatened to add more (see SpreadBlog). But first there were two finalists for week 7. Its not clear if these two are finalists or GRAND finalists. We will probably know tomorrow.
Now, onto the Grand Finalists. There are some logos from the a corporate feel to very indie. It really will say a lot about the company and what direction they plan on going based on which one they choose. Check em out below…
Bubble label theme or message isn’t clear enough for me. it looks like some strange circle sunflower and it is impossible to read the text “Your own label”. The concept is good and might work for a marketing campaign but not as a logo.
Your Own Logo – is original but loses its shining power around the rest of the submissions. I know Spreadshirt wanted a logo that could be modified and changed and it doesn’t seem like this one really has that edge.
Play with forms – I discussed it before and it is still one of my favorites. Not so much the logo used as the example but the way Spreadshirt can play with all sorts of forms as part of their logo. Spreadshirt is about bringing ideas and people together and this definitely meets that message.
Universal language – We discussed this before and basically it would be great for an indie clothing company.
Pop your Collar – Another one of my favorites because its very brandable and suprisingly I have never seen anything like it for a t-shirt company.
Spreadshirt Tm is ok but for some reason always reminds me of the old Microsoft windows logo. I like the idea of the blank inside because it has the message of “your label” on the shirt. Because the “Label” part of the logo really should be more about the t-shirt than a price or hanging tag interpretation of a label.
Think Spreadshirt_update – I do like this one and has a nice retro feel to it with the brandable t-shirt thought box.
Lovetab – Again, the label concept should be more focused on a shirt rather than a price tag/hanging label. It is a great logo though and wouldn’t mind seeing it win. It would be really easy to change the label with different text making it a fun logo to have in different places.
Labelheads – Just an all around fun (but brandable) design and would be really easy to mix up for different holidays, occasions or promotions. I like the idea of components of a logo changing for different occasions and thats why I would like to see this one go all the way.
LabelSpread – Again I am not sold on the use of a label as a price tag and a flat t-shirt that got run over by a truck isn’t really exciting for me. It really doesn’t say much about the company and isn’t really a strong brand icon.
Label Cut Hole – Umm, not sure whats going on with this or why it made it to the grand finals. Let’s just leave it at that.
Tag Your Brand - This one with the label works for me. It is clean, clear and gets the point across. It’s more clear that “Your Label” is your “brand” rather that a price tag label.
LabelRange is a nice design but again, too much label and not enough shirt. I like the use of color but its not at the top of my list.
Congratulations to all the finalists and good luck in the final days that are dedicated to voting. It wasn’t an easy road to be 13 our of 2800+ designs.
