The Brief

Med North Health Center is a local health care provider targeting residents & local employers seeking quality health care options. With a strong community focus, the facility will provide a broad spectrum of medical care and is also a teaching facility.

Our services include Preventative Care, Quality of Care, Pre-Natal Clinic, Dental Services, Immunizations, Pediatrics, Sick & Well Child Clinic Hours, OB/GYN, Geriatric Care, Sports Physicals, and On Site Pharmacy." We are looking for a logo that is distinctive, clean, crisp and creative; a design that works well on all corporate collateral materials; and is visually identifiable as a health care entity.

The facility is located in Wilmington, NC, which is a beach community in New Hanover County and the facility is blocks away from the Cape Fear River. The facility does provide services to the surrounding counties.

Note: Please be aware that there is a competitive provider in the area, that utilizes a traditional health care cross in their logo. (See competitor’s logo: http://www.wilmingtonhealth.com/). If you choose to incorporate the cross in your design, it needs to be substantially different than the image link provided to avoid copyright infringement.)

Target Audience

Anyone in need of health care services. Primary demo Adults 25-54. We hope to be viewed as a health care provider for the entire family as well as local businesses seeking health care options for their employees.

Logo Requirements

Logosauce Standard Final Art Requirements: Vector artwork in Pantone SPOT, CMYK, RGB and BW versions. Files should be saved in Adobe Illustrator .ai or .eps file formats with all strokes converted to objects and fonts pathed/outlined. Other file formats may be acceptable in exceptional circumstances.

@colonial You should consider shortlisting some designs you like so designers can see what styles you’re leaning toward.

@colonial – don’t forget to give feedback by commenting on your competition page, individual logos and by shortlisting your favourites.

The decision will be made by the board members serving on the marketing committee which consist of 9 members, so it would be misleading for me to create a short list. The entire committee will see each submission.

Please remember that the traditional health care cross is not a requirement of the design competition.

A little additional info, each board member has been requested to submit their top 3 favorites. As I get that information, I will start short listing those designs.

Short list has been updated with the responses I’ve received, but many more are pending. Will continue to short list as the information comes in and hope to have a final decision soon. Thank you all for a group of amazing submissions.

I wonder if “Guaranteed Prizemoney” on the top of this page has any meaning at all

@Cwilk – is that just pure conjecture or did you find some actual evidence online of this happening. If so would appreciate you pointing out where you saw this evidence.

The rules are clear.

The client pays in advance and we hold in trust. The client has 14 days to select a winner.( We can extend this period in the right circumstances.) We send continual reminders to the client to select a winner.

If no winner is selected the competition is forfeited and funds go into the general pool to help fund the site.

If anyone has information about the competition you feel we should be aware of – please email me.

I propose a solution to this. Why don’t we have a ranking system as opposed to a shortlist. That way the prizemoney could default to the 1st rank in case the client doesn’t pick a winner. I’ve seen this system on many websites. That way the prizemoney atleast ends up with the designer.

Sorry you guys. The board meets tomorrow afternoon, May 14th at 4pm, to select a winner. I’ll notify you as soon as I have their decision.

Too bad it is too late and the prizemoney is with logosauce now. If you select a winner or not, the prizemoney will not go to the designer…
Too bad, a lot of great designs were submitted to this competition. You should know that a lot of time goes into designing a logo.

Vector’s solution seems the simplest and fairest way to arbitrate these frequently recurring events.It’s fair reward for s designer’s time and talent.

I’ll do everything I can to get it reinstated. A series of calamaties occurred as is common when more than one person is involved in a decision.

Colonial, we understand completely. The two weeks selection time on this site is sometimes too short. In this case it’s extra sour because of the large prizemoney (designers put in extra time and effort in those cases).

It is a new client, however they are currently in existence and are implementing a name change. I have emailed support to see if I can salvage the competition.

Digger:

Hi all. OK the client has contacted us overnight to explain the situation and we’ll happily reopen and extend the selection date so the client can select a winner.

We’ve done this many times before for tardy clients.

Two weeks by the way is we believe long enough. We’ve thought long and hard about what is appropriate and in almost every case it is long enough. For cases where it’s not – we will consider extension.

It means in most cases a more timely outcome for all involved. Previously we had no time limit and that led to far more forfeits.

Secondly we’ve discussed these situations in the past (together as a community, with individual designers and internally here at Logosauce) and looked at ways of paying the designers fairly in the case of a forfeit. We looked at ranking, community vote, arbitrary decision by Logosauce staff, micro payments or points to everyone who participated. Our conclusion and decision in the end was to NOT award in those instances.

Any unpaid comp prize-money goes into the development pool for the website which my company e-see.com otherwise funds. And we sorely need funds to keep the site going and to give everybody here a venue for their work.

@Cwilk – thanks for the explanation. Obviously jumping to conclusions should be avoided.

@Vector – the problem with Ranking is that often the client doesn’t understand the importance of ranking or shortlisting. A client who fails to pick a winner is unlikely to comment, shortlist or rank.

Digger:

BTW @Colonial is a repeat client and has previously run 6 competitions with good outcomes. Hence we have no hesitation in extending the selection date.
