The Brief

We are European-run but Dubai,UAE based startup website offering access to job vacancies within the UAE – a standard job portal with a modern twist and specialism.

Employment laws are tricky here and the best jobs are based in the freezones – where the majority of the international firms are located.

We need a corporate logo that displays professionalism and a strong corporate image, but is attractive to internationally based clients and candidates. The logo for my previous company – Themis recruitment – is a good example.

The main issue for us is that we would like the design to be stronger than the colour scheme – there are 34 freezones in the UAE and each serve a different market specialism; i.e Dubai International Financial Centre or DIFC is where all the investment banks, PE firms and Law firms are regulated – hence a corporate blue would be useful.

Jebel Ali Freezone is the home for all the logistics and shipping companies therefore a yellow may work.

Therefore – the winning entry will need to look good in a variety of colors.

We need a logo that is simple and cross cultural – no Words really as the language will be an issue. Maybe letters like FZ jobs or FZJ or a play on that, or something different. No Arabic or Islamic references either.

Target Audience

Dubai, UAE has no employment restrictions like other countries, hence if you have the skills and the payrate is correct, you are free to come. There are 1.2m people in Dubai and 98% are ExPatriate. Most of the blue collar workforce come from India, Pakistan, Srilanka and the Philippines, with most of the white collar workforce coming from other Arab countries, Europe, or Australia.

The UK makes up the biggest slice of the professional workforce market with over 140,000 Brits here. English is the primary language for all business, with Arabic and Hindi being second.

Also many people seem to be entering blue and yellow logos – can I have some variety as this looks a little ‘retail’ too me

With five days to go my concern is that alot of these really great entries apply to the candidates not the employers. In order to secure the clients’ buy-in the logos need to be more “corporate” looking in more muted colours.

thanks for all your efforts – we’re really looking forward to selected a short list
