Key Objective-The one Key message to be communicated. If only one thought came through in the communication, what would it be?

Rugged. Cool. Motorcycle lifestyle. Professional. SIMPLE & CLEAN. The Harley Davidson logo SHOULD NOT be included in any versions of the logo. Only the Name, The Motorcycle Company with a cool mark, bug should be the goal. Cool clean type face, maybe use some negative space. Or even create a mark that includes the companies inititals (TMC)

Harley feel and tone.
Muscular and Confidant.
Bad Ass.

Target Audience

the logo will be used as the corporate brand identity for the parent company that owns 8 of the largest Harley Dealerships in the world. The Owners of the company are 2 young 30 year old brothers that reflect the new motorcycle lifestyle to a t (they are NOT long haired, bearded leather wearing biker gangs) they are clean cut professionals that you will find Heli skiing in Canada one week, and the Kentucky Derby the next. They are more X Games than Hells Angels so the logo should reflect that attitude.

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.

I agree N8.
If you value your time it should give fair
warning as to which contests to avoid in future

All – I apologize for our delay in choosing a winner for this contest.. your hard work and great designs have not been a waste. The owners of TMC have been out of the country and have just returned and will choose a winner shortly. Unfortunately we did not see the notifications of the 14 day window to choose a winner – but we will very shortly. Again my sincere apologies for the delay. stay tuned.

Good News …

Folks, be patient – we try to get clients to award a winner within 14 days – but this is not always possible. So we auto forfeit the competition at that point. This typically gets a reaction and we get action. Experienced Logosauce Designers should know this.

Typically we can eventually get clients to make a choice and the award is made. Occasionally a winner is not awarded but that is rare.

@Aadi Amount Guaranteed refers to the fact that the client pays in advance and that we don’t refund the prize-money.

I apologize for my comment, It said forfeited, so I was upset that I wasted time. I am hopeful that my logo will not go unnoticed now! Glad it is back, and thanks for explaining.
