The Case of the Changing Logo!

Posted in Uncategorized by Rohan Shravan on October 15, 2010

Dear All,

[We will not have Week-End special this time. Working on something special for the next week and it will take a bit of time :)]

We have got 26,888 votes on the color option! Thanks for your support!

There is one more area where we can work together. I have gone through some 100s of different logos, but havent find one which can really bring excitement. Logo of a company is like the company itself and saves the history of its nature when a new one replaces the older one. Every company you know, have done at least one change in its identity.

But before changing one, you need to opt for one. And that is far more complicated process, because, one it has to represent the soul of the company and two, has to satisfy tons of people working at the managerial (or other) level of the firm. Below you will find some of the logos I personally have gone through and still feel something is still missing:

I like some of these though, but I am sure I am not totally excited about any one of them in particular.

Here is what I propose.

If you are a designer, design one logo which you think is your best art. It’s an open content, so anyone can take a part. Send it to us at relations at notionink dot com. We will select the best 10 and post it over here. Lets have a poll again and then decide who is the winner! (It’s quite possible that we again don’t like any, in that case the contest will continue) Winner gets $1,000 and first Adam as well! Deadlines are short though. We have 7 days, contest ends on 22nd  Oct, poll goes live on the same day and results finalized on 25th Oct.


To take part send in your logo to relations at notionink dot com with Subject as “Logo Contest”

“Why the Name?

We all have a dream (idea or Notion), and the first thing we all will do to realize it, is to write it somewhere. To write your idea on a paper is the most difficult task, cos then you know it’s there! That piece of paper will now challenge you everyday that you are still missing something. It will live with you throughout your life telling you have always missed accomplishing me! Notion Ink is exactly that Ink which forces you to write your ideas on a piece of paper! The first enabler you will ever need to dare to dream!


Let me know what you think.

Warm Regards

    I think 3rd is awesome, but lets wait for Contest propositions.

      Agreed. Out of the ones shown right now that is my favourite. Really looking forward to seeing what the community comes up with though!

      The third one is just the name in a widely available free font. Seems like poor design work imo. It conveys no sense of clean lines and recognizability that surrounds all well known and respected brands.
