UPDATE 2: I added a new sketch to brief again, hopefully this helps to clarify what we are looking for in terms of stock candlesticks inside teh logo and "behind" the text, taking up most of the background. if not please ask!
UPDATE: I see a lot of people still copying the very first iteration, a logo with an Orange A Flame - I've chosen the ones I like with that format, please stop iterating it. I went ahead and posted some ideas since everyone is fixated on the A flame
I see a lot of very talented designers working on this contest, so I am very thankful for everyone's work and effort. THANK YOU
Idea 0: A standalone logo that doesnt include a letter, instead it has an emphasis on candlesticks
Idea 1: Posted in Brief (with a background (stock pattern and/or with a flame)
Idea 2: Forget A, there are a lot of letters that have candlestick/chart potential B L A Z E
Idea 3: text that is not just a flat line
Idea 4: text background that is subtle with a stock pattern (the background of text vs a solid colour) lots of patterns/etc can be done with a gradient, contrast, etc.
Idea 5: Colours. more colours, please
Idea 6: Marijuana/Cannabis can be included but please make it subtle, we are rebranding for a reason
Idea 7: Focus on BLAZE, capital is not the attention
Idea 8: Candlesticks, more candlesticks
Idea 9: Trailblazing theme
Idea 10: BC
Idea 11: Yours.
A stock market trading group that had a focus on the cannabis/marijuana sector (formerly 42o Capital and the contest was run on 99designs) - and is now broadening our focus to the wider market - hence the rebrand. the current website is https://42o.capital
Still would like to focus on cannabis but have the logo not "scream weed", subtle is ideal
Most people find me via youtube and then come join us on Slack (subscription service for stock advice)
I like the play on the word Blaze because:
- IDEA: one of our taglines is - we add fuel to a fire that is already burning, we "average up" because the trade is going with us. when people "average down" its like starting to start a fire in the pouring rain, it won't matter how much wood or gasoline you have, it won't light just as a trade that is going against you, will often do the same.
- IDEA: I also like the "trailblazing" aspect of us using our educational material to education/guide people to "blaze the trail to financial freedom" and different courses are like different trails that we "blaze"
- IDEA: I also like that it still has a play on the Marijuana/Cannabis space
- IDEA: use one of the above "Themes" and play off one of the letters
Any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out!
