Design a Logo Competition £20 PRIZE - Daphon Gaming
Hi guys,

It's been a while since I've been on here so I'd just like to start with some background information on DG.

We were formed back in 2010 and last year we played in the 1.6 Balkan League competition. After a few problems I decided to put the whole thing on hold until this year to see how CS GO went. Now here I am, ready to re-launch DG into the CS GO world. We are run from the UK but our 5 man GO team is a full Finnish lineup.

Now as for this competition, we are looking for somebody to design us 2 versions of the same logo, a main logo that we would use as our profile picture on Facebook, Twitter, Steam ect and a banner, one that could stretch across the top of our website (still under construction).

Our old logo was this, sorry for the small size!
http://media.steampowered.com/steamcommunity/publi..

Please send any files, messages or enquiries to tomdaphon@yahoo.co.uk.
Prize for this competition is £20.

Cheers,
Tom'b

2013-04-24 22:27:02
You judge purely whether you have heard of the players or not? That's kind of narrow minded. ^^

And yes prebz I hate u

2013-04-24 22:35:39

2013-04-24 22:32:33
Real life? What's that? Do you gain experience points in real life?
2013-04-26 23:08:18

2013-04-25 02:21:09
At last someone legit for the job appeared !
2013-04-25 06:00:16
would you like to send me your skype? you can send it private.
2013-04-25 12:34:24
Wow, nice :D
2013-04-25 12:48:31
I dont think you'll get a decent logo with that money, if you dont luckily find a decent hobbyist.
2013-04-25 07:51:54
You can get me, I do work like this for beer money.
2013-04-25 11:53:52
That LondonLynx project of yours looks so good! Holy hell..
2013-04-25 12:03:55
Funny enough it started as just a portfolio piece to demonstrate my ability to clients, but I got approached by a couple of guys i've know for a while and now we have set it up as an actual organisation.

Which sent a UK team to LAN not so long ago, players which are now currently playing for dignitas and stuff so I am quite proud :)
2013-04-25 14:37:17
You invest into pricy ass software called photoshop to get underpaid ? :|
2013-04-25 12:13:26
"Invest" in software.

I charge little next to nothing to build my portfolio and help myself get better at handling clientele.

It helps for when I go looking for a job in the industry to show I have experience working freelance and making money of it.

So it's a win - win situation for me.

2013-04-25 14:34:31

2013-04-26 21:17:09

https://www.dropbox.com/s/trokn399une5tut/daphonv2.. I made the across the top of the website type of a logo.. since the text is designed like it is, I looked at it and decided to do it like that instead of side by side..
2013-04-26 22:39:18
forgiven, look pm please!!
