As you can see, we are now aggressively eliminating designs to let you know which way we are headed with our brand. Our board of investors has made their expectations clear to us and we see potential win all of your work. Just not 100% targeted as of today. Keep up the great work everyone.

Time to submit your updated or new design to set it apart from the others. Great designs submitted but all have their own merit. Looking for one that clearly dominates the selections. We are sincerely impressed with all of your work so far. Keep up the good work.

Ending soon. A lot of really nice designs to go over and discuss with my partner. Thank you all for the nice work. Depending on last minute entries, we may extend the project to allow you design and/or redesign without a deadline. We will see. Thanks again.

We will start to dwindle down the designs to help all of you see where we want to go with this. Please do not take it personally when we delete and it does mean that you should not improve your previous designs or submit new versions. It simply helps us make an easier decision. Thank you all so far for the great designs!

who we are:
I am Miguel and I have a serious passion for Tequila. So much so that I have started up my own brand of Tequila. I am super excited to get going with production and the logo is the first detail needing attention. Thank you for taking the time to look over my project and provide creative input for something I have always dreamed of doing!

industry / business type:
Food and Beverage Manufacturing

what we need:
I need a logo and text that depicts not only our brand but what tequila represents in the Mexican culture. Obviously named after the town of Tequila in the state of Jalisco, Tequila is very unique and known world wide. Our Brand "Vaca Negra" translates to "Black Cow" for those of you who do not speak Spanish. The logo needs to be representative of that image but not necessarily too literal. The inclusion of the image can be subtle, abstract or even implied. I would like the logo to be timeless and able to remain attractive for future generations. Tequila being a large part of Mexican culture, the logo should incorporate the feel of Mexican history and the text/fonts should also be easily recognizable as Mexican in flavor. I plan on using the logo for bottle labeling, print, apparel and web sites. Regarding the bottles, the logo will ultimately be back-lit at bars and restaurants so it needs to be adaptable to UV glass etching which sort of gives it a "see-thru" appearance. I will need to retain services after the design phase is completed and a design is selected due to the ever changing market, different product lines and specific need for the label. IN some cases just "Vaca Negra Tequila" will be used and in other instances, "100% De Agave Azul" and "Extra Anejo" need to be present in the design. That being said, I think the original design should include these terms in order to become a product bottle label right off the bat. I will need the ability to add and remove text from the logo as the product logo/name is used in different arenas. For example, all of the terms need to be on the bottle label, but maybe only the logo and brand name need to be on the apparel, etc.... However, the primary use is for a bottle so size the logo/text accordingly. Because we have not finalized our actual glass bottle shape yet, the logo must also be adaptable to many shapes of bottles or at least able to be modified to fit whatever we decide upon.
