Check out nathan.freeman's Logo design contest…
OpenNTF is an open source community for the IBM Notes/Domino platform. It was founded in 2001 and has been in continuous operation since then. It is a community by software developers for software developers who build collaborative business solutions. The IBM Domino platform has recently gone through a resurgence in capabilities, incorporating new social features, mobile & tablet interfaces and extended integration with platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Google and LinkedIn. OpenNTF is a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to furthering the IBM platform by providing both production-ready and learning example projects, as well as development tools, to organizations using the Domino platform. Our primary audience is IT professionals, most of whom are corporate software developers or systems administrators. You can find the OpenNTF website at http://www.openntf.org
Logo types to explore
One of the worst problems with our current logo (besides the fact that it's in Impact... yuck!) is that it feels very compressed and tight. OpenNTF is an OPEN source community, and so one of the most important themes in our new design should be openness. *** ADDITIONAL NOTES FOR FINALISTS *** While all of you submitted stellar designs for this contest, some of the submissions raised the bar for the rest of you by providing versions against both white and black backgrounds, in both long formats and tall formats, as well as square "app icon"-style renditions (good for reduction to 64x64 or smaller renderings) So we're going to ask all of you to provide complete versions of your finalist designs for final judging. So we need your design(s) against a white background, a black background, in a "long" format that might be used in a web page footer as well as a "tall" format that might be used for letterhead or business cards. Finally we need a square icon version that would be suitable for iOS home pages, favicons, etc. For each of your submissions, I have eliminated all designs that are less than your best version just to avoid any confusion. For some of you, that does mean there's more than one remaining design, and you're welcome to evolve any idea remaining or submit something entirely new. But I've left only the designs in the running that I consider to be the best examples of your contributions thus far.I want to congratulate all of you on really fantastic work. This is my first time using 99designs, and I'm blown away by the quality and variety of the designs that have been submitted. Whatever is the final design that we select, this is among the best money that openntf.org has ever spent. Thank you so much for your effort thus far.
