Job Description

Hi!

You know what? I need a new logo for a fresh mobile development company.

The company is focused on developing disruptive mobile apps *and* games.

The name of the company is "Powerful Code". 'Cause I've got the POWER! o/

I have some ideas for this logo, but I need a designer to help me on elaborating the idea -- by making the right questions, probably.

I also need it done in Illustrator (or similar), since I need the vectorials. I need help with the colors too. So that's it, I need a logo designer! :-)

The logo will be use mainly on the web, and / or apps. That is, in the digital world. I may print it someday, but that would be rare.

Another thing to keep in mind: this logo needs to be used as a Splash Screen. What is a Splash Screen? (That's you asking).

Well, "A splash screen is an image that appears while a game or program is loading." Long explanation here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Splash_screen

Note: I'm not looking for animation. It does not need to be dynamic. Just keep in mind that the logo will be using during an app or game loading on the iPhone / iPad or a 42" TV, ok? :-)

So basically I'm imagining a logo that references game development:

Or maybe something really minimalistic that references technology / coding:

Another minimalist logo that I love to see (from Level 5, one of the best game companies -- look at the top-left):

Or maybe something classy, in black / white / gray, that references quality / trust:

Or even something totally out-of-the-box! Like this:

Yeah, why not?

Here's a list of the classic game companie logos, for your reference:

Let's have fun with it, shall we?

Creative designers, I summon you! :D

Please let me see your portfolio. Those with productions similar to the ones above will have a special place on top of my list. And this is important: you HAVE to have a portfolio so I can check your previous works. By looking at it, I'll be able to tell if you are my designer.

The budget is fixed at $400. And you will have more than 4 weeks to make it. :-)

Thanks!
