Logo design contest

Logo design contest image

Everything around us is evolving, this means we can't stay behind. As our platform is beginning to grow and functionalities are added on almost a weekly base we have started to think about our designs.

The contest has been closed at 00:00 on Monday June 29th 2015. Winners will be announced on the 1st of August 2015.

One of the most important things in design is our logo. It identifies who we are and what we do. We believe that our logo, despite it really pops out because of the colors used, does not really fit our goals on what we want to achieve. Yes, it has an house displayed on it, but the PiDome platform is outgrowing this. It is starting not to be only to control your home, but it is starting to become a whole ecosystem. In this era of the Internet of Things, possibilities are becoming almost endless.

We are very clear in the fact that we are not User Interface and/or logo designers, we are more passionate in coding and make things work. So what we did is looking around for sponsors because we wanted to write out a small logo design contest. We have found our logo design contest partner who is willing to help us out with this, so we gratefully are thanking Dome Logics. This is our very first contest, so we had to keep the price small, but can give the designer of the winning logo a lot of exposure like conferences or even sometimes meetings with interesting parties. If you are willing to spare some of your free time, read on:

The contest

Create a name logo where there is a logo we can use as application icons and the name PiDome in a re-usable font. As mentioned earlier, PiDome is growing into being more then only letting users control devices, it has a rule system, proximity system and security, climate control, the IoT cloud interactions which will be added and there is a lot more coming! Create something that is future proof. The entries will be viewed by John, Marcel and Sandra.
