OptimizedGentleman got their new logo & brand guide by running a design contest:
'The Optimized Gentleman' Masculine Site Logo & Brand Kit
Check out OptimizedGentleman's Logo & brand guide contest…
The Optimized Gentleman is and will blossom into a site which provides authority content and information on all things modern masculine men (16-45) need to up their life experience, including: - Health, Wellness & Fitness / Movement - Nutrition & Supplementation - Strength Training, Sleep & Breathwork / Meditation ... This is the first "Health" category. Later on, the site will be serving content and offering information on Relationships & Wealth/Business. These topics will come in later on, but I still want them to be encapsulated to the brand logo/guide. Words to describe the brand would be: sophisticated, strong, masculine, capable, classy, intelligent. You can use inspiration from the likes of GQ, Robb Report, Clientele Luxury Global... you get the gist. I've attached some examples from these magazines and brands.
COLORS: Please prioritize the dark neutrals (blacks, grays) and the yellows/golds. The blues I chose, is an idea which may or may not be discarded - those two first color categories are most important. LOGO / BRAND: The logo should incorporate a few elements that are important, such as strength training, mental development, nutrition/supp, meditation, etc... Logo Icons like barbells/brains/beards/muscles/books are welcome - please keep it subtle. I know it can be hard to cram all of that in there, but I'd like to represent the transformation to a distinguished, capable gentleman on all fronts. I like the cross type logos attached (Order of Man / VG), which offer some different icons in each slot (for example)! Thank you and looking forward to submissions!
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Logo & brand guide starts at €389.
