Contest Brief

I need a logo that is humorously ambiguous for a podcast + blog I'm creating. The name of it is "Not Dot Com, Dot Net" and the website is [login to view URL]

The email address I'll be using is atatat@[login to view URL]

It's a dumb joke to launch a lot of dumb ideas, but the crux of it is it's pretty terrible when you say it out loud. "You're listening to not dot com, dot net. You can find us online at not dot com dot net dot com." I'd like the logo to be similarly infuriating and useless. I'd like a square logo as well as a typographic text-based one, if at all possible.

    Wow. Thanks, everyone for educating me on overused logos. I'm rejecting all that fit with https://overusedlogodesigns.wordpress.com and will make my final decision very shortly.

    Thanks for all the entries so far, y'all!

    Some good things I'm seeing: unique visual elements, playfulness with the way someone would read the logo.

    Some things I'm not loving: generic logos just put alongside text, text that doesn't align well with the visual elements, text that goes after other text elements which make it hard to read what the logo is trying to say.

    Things I'd be interested in seeing tried: playing with negation operators from programming (! for not, or \ which escapes / invalidates a single character). For instance:
    - \.
    - !(dotcom).net

      Hi Faisal, would you mind elaborating? I would happily defer to an expert opinion if you think my judgement is off! The reasons I like the 5-star ones in particular are they work well with or without the text (the "DOT NET" part looks solid as a logo on its own), the whole thing reads correctly from left to right and top to bottom with the text, and it works well both in a two-color and monochromatic scheme.

      I think the person who wrote that mesagge delete the post. But let me clarify this for you, there's a list of generic designs that looks like MANY brands done by irresponsable designers (a brand should never look like other ones because attends to different needs, reflects different concepts, etc.), and the one you rate 4 stars is in it: https://overusedlogodesigns.wordpress.com/

    In the interest of keeping the front page clear and easy to read, I'm going to temporarily "reject" multiples of the same image -- that doesn't mean I don't like them or appreciate them. I'm just getting more submissions than expected and I want it to be easy for people to see a variety of submissions rather than just the top few in different display schemes.

    Entries that are blatant ripoffs of existing designs will be rejected without consideration. If I want an iteration on someone's original design, I'll encourage them to resubmit.

      I want to clarify: I'm ok with a clearly different take on something. I was just seeing a handful that were not more much than a recolor of existing designs!
