When you’re looking for the perfect logo

Posted by on April 27, 2010 | 1 comment

How did we come up with the SpikySnail Logo?

Well, actually, we didn’t – We used one of the best Logo design services available online.

It’s really Worth it

Long time ago, I came across a great website named Worth1000. Back then, I used to visit it from time to time to check out their awesome contests. They had a nice concept that graphic artists from around the world could participate in a themed creative competitions (announced frequently by the website owners). The results were simply fantastic!

Tons of creative minds from around the world, all in one arena, showing off their talent.

After a while, they had started adding more concepts and auctions to their website. One of the new concepts was Corporate Logo Contests. The concept here was that anyone who wants a brand new logo for his company or product, can pay a relatively small price and have 40-50 creative designers compete on the option to pitch their own unique logo idea. All you have to do is choose.

An easy process – not too expensive

The process is very simple. you get a list of questions: What’s your company main business? What will the logo be used for? What should your logo represent? How many colors should this logo be? and so on.

Another question you should answer is ‘how much do I put as a winning prize?’ – you decide how much the winner will get. The recommended winning prize by the site’s owners is about $200. This price should bring about 40 designers to your bid. But of course, if you go higher, more contestants will participate.

To that you should add $200 to list and you got yourself a design competition, where 40-50 art designers are offering great logos to your company for a very reasonable price. A really great deal in my opinion.

And the winner is…

Another great thing about the competition is that when it’s done, anyone who logs in, can vote on his favorite logo. This gives you yet another opinion to what people like.

We didn’t choose the concept voted as winner by the site’s voters. We chose another artist who, we think, captured best what we were looking for. Not too serious, not too childish, simple and different.

What also ‘sealed the deal’ was the SpikySnail T-shirt he had submitted along with the logo. The logo contest was held right before GDC 2010, so we started picturing ourselves walking in San-Fransisco in a SpikySnail T-shirt.

Well, at the end, we didn’t wear anything special to the conference – but we did vote for this logo as our favorite.

I invite you to check out the other SpikySnail contest entries from the Worth1000 contest. You’ll find some great designs there. Really professional and inspiring.

And if you ever need a logo – I really recommend you check out Worth1000’s logo design service as your first option.

Announcing: Confetti Carnival

Posted by on March 29, 2010 | 0 comments

We couldn’t wait…

Well, with a new website for SpikySnail, there’s nothing better than to announce our new upcoming game – Confetti Carnival – and to show you a sneak peak from one of the levels.

So, what do we see here?

Obviously it involves some red liquid-like stuff and confetti (duh!) you can also see some sort of a combo multiplier on the right hand side.

However, apart from getting that 750 points from the splash in the middle you can’t really tell what this game is about (and we’re hoping that you’re already a bit curious to find out).

Anyway, a lot more of those are waiting in line and we’ll periodically update our site with more and more clues, screenshots and videos – right until we reveal our original story line and gameplay.

Stay tuned and stay happy!

P.s. If you click on the screenshot and look closely, you might see a faded image of a hand just above the splash. This is a very small clue for what’s to come.
