How HighStranger started their logo design journey

Company name

HighStranger

Overview

HighStranger.com was TechCrunched at the end of August and now there are thousands of people waiting for us to launch.

Our first order of business is to dump the hideous website and logo you see now http://highstranger.com and replace it with something sweet, starting with the logo, which is what this contest is for.

While this contest is for the HighStranger™ logo only, we hope that it will quickly (ideally immediately) lead to one or more follow-on projects working directly with one or more people we meet through this contest. Additional information about those follow-on projects is available in the design brief.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

HighStranger™ helps people find and connect with each other across cultures, time, and space. We help you save time, find, filter, locate, and connect, especially when you're on the go and/or want to meet or connect with people from or in other places, scenes, cultures, and sub-cultures.

If you're in the cannabis culture or you know about it, you know what we're talking about. It's about new friendships and experiences, opening our eyes and minds. Maybe Timothy Leary said it best: "Turn on, tune in, drop out" (that quote, BTW, is not about drugs):

"Turn on" means go within to activate your neural and genetic equipment. Become sensitive to the many and various levels of consciousness and the specific triggers that engage them. Drugs were one way to accomplish this end. "Tune in" means interact harmoniously with the world around you - externalize, materialize, express your new internal perspectives. "Drop out" suggests an elective, selective, graceful process of detachment from involuntary or unconscious commitments. "Drop Out" means self-reliance, a discovery of one's singularity, a commitment to mobility, choice, and change. —Timothy Leary.

Maybe that sounds "hippie" to some people, and maybe they're right, because we do indeed question authority, seek truth, and seek to free ourselves from societal restrictions, fears, and divisive beliefs.

Requirements

This contest is to create the HighStranger™ logo, which should, ideally, consist of the written brand name plus an associated icon (for example, Twitter + its bird icon). The icon is not required (but it would be nice).

A PDF design brief, including images, is here:
http://highstranger.com/designbrief

What we're looking to do with this contest is establish a direct connection with one or more designers for additional design work, starting as soon as possible (basically immediately, depending on your availability).

Even if you don't participate in this contest, maybe you can pass it along to your friends and colleagues who might be interested. You can do that directly or, even better, through Facebook or Twitter. If you want a chance to win a free HighStranger t-shirt, see here: http://highstranger.com/contest

/BEGIN UPDATE/

The contest has been guaranteed AND extended for three days and ends on Saturday, November 13th.

General comments:

1) High and Stranger should be on one line unless there is a reason for them to be on two, such as you can see in one highly rated submission.

3) No ALLCAPS.

3) If you incorporate a bong into your design, please make sure it looks like a bong and remember there are lots of different styles of bongs, not just the one that seems to keep cropping up over and over again here. In case anyone else is planning to use a bong in their design, here is some inspiration: http://goo.gl/JjWPM

4) No need to put a registered trademark or TM symbol in the design, those kinds of details the winning designer will add later, as part of the polishing process we'll do with the contest winner after awarding the win to him or her.

5) You can put variations with and without some sort of ".com" in the design if you want. That's totally optional. Can either be a URL or just a .com, such as what Fossa22 did here (link to portfolio): http://99designs.com/users/436376/f…ns/5971539

6) Nice to see versions for light and dark backgrounds, such as specified in the design brief and shown in some of the higher-rated contest entries so far. That's optional for the contest entry, but is a required deliverable as per the design brief.

7) Remember, you are doing this in Adobe Illustrator or another VECTOR program, the layered output of which we can and will work with in Adobe Illustrator.
