Résumé de concours

HAVANZA is going to be a Business Directory and Marketing Agency.

Two words combined HAVANA (the city) + AVANZA (Spanish for "move/go forward") = HAVANZA. Both letters, H and Z, make the difference.
Visually I need it to say HAVANA and the Z should be introduced subtly. I prefer small caps, however I'm open to suggestions.

Should be minimalist, negative space, vintage or hand written. Simple and easy to read.
No backgrounds, store fronts, buildings or real estate themes.

Two, maximum three color design.
Respect spacing, I'm very detail oriented.

DON'T submit the same design in different colors or with fancy backgrounds. I'm not looking for quantity, but quality.

For your inspiration, think of Cuban iconic things such as:
Sun, Beaches, Palms, Tropic, Rum, Cigars, Music, Classic Cars, Baseball, Fruits, Capitol, Colonial Buildings, Pirates & Sail Ships, Mojito, Alligators, Hummingbirds, Parrots, Tourism.

As a Business Directory, Pins, Maps, Location, Geography, Routes, Signs, Compasses, etc could be helpful, but not necessary objects to use.

Cuba is a Sleeping Country wanting to move forward, but progress is constantly avoiding it for political and economical reasons.

The logo can represent it's steadiness in a sarcastical way. I have no problems with it as long as it looks professional.

I'm not sealing the contest but that doen't mean I want you to copy from each other.

Attached there's an image with a few designs for ideas. DON'T COPY.

Be original, Be a designer!

Now if you consider yourself one, submit your proposal.

Commentaire de l'employeur

“I started a contest and had to extend it because of the poor quality of the entries. Where have you been before? I had to review 1000+ entries, but it was worth the waiting. Right before the contest ended I got this cool logo. Completely different, clean and outside the box. That's what a designer does, he/she listens, acknowledges and explores... Then he/she turns your world upside down with a pitch you didn't expect. Thank you so much!”

    Hello, It's been a tough contest. The quality was not as expected and now I have to make a decision because I can't keep extending this. Thanks to those who dedicated so many hours and submitted their of entries. Unfortunatelly, I can't award dedication.

    How so nobody has tried HAVANA? I've been screaming for it and nobody is using that information. It's easier to copy and paste. What about negative space? None of the designers here are aware of that technique? Using a pin between N and A, because it's a freaking Business Directory. A speech bubble between those 2 letters. For god sakes, STOP playing and start working. I attached an image with suggestions for you to use.

    #857 This entry is among my favorites. But thanks to one of the contestants I found it was copied from shutterstock. My question would be: Is it fair if I award the "author" the contest prize? Not for me, not for those who are trying to be original.

      nope. i am saying when you see such logos, you should do a good google search and if you find it copied you should reject it.

    TOP rated is not a choice. I'm not to blame for your lack of imagination. If I have to give away the contest money, which I will, I better get something great in return. You guys keep copying each other and 800 entries are about 50 original, the rest are clones and color variations of the same.

    Can anyone try for once what I described? Write HAVANA and introduce the Z subtly. I want to see entries saying HAVANA at first sight, not the obvious havanZa.
