I'm launching a Bitcoin web portal called "Bittiraha.fi" which is marketed to Finnish people. Bittiraha is a Finnish word which consists of two words bitti and raha and it loosely means "bitmoney". I've noticed that people tend to often call Bitcoin "bittiraha" in Finland, so it makes sense.

The site is not focused on Finland or the Finnish flag, it's focused on Bitcoin. Keep this in mind when choosing themes for your logo submissions.

Rules of the competition:

1) The logo must have the word "Bittiraha.fi" in it. Preferably spelled like that but it can also be all caps or something special if you can make it look good.

2) I am allowed to ask for small changes afterwards which are included in the 15 BTC reward.

3) I require a vector file of that logo because I need the logo for many different purposes and in many different sizes.

4) I get full rights to use and modify the logo that I have chosen.

5) I am not forced to choose any logo. This is not a competition of who is best, if none of the applicants are what I need, no one gets the bounty.

The competition is finished. No new submissions, please.

Winner has been chosen and it was announced in this post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=64159.msg782872#msg782872

I hope you visit the site when it's up. It's going to change the Bitcoin landscape in Finland. By the way I didn't mean that Finnish Bitcoin-enthusiasts call Bitcoin "bittiraha", they don't. You're right about that. From a marketing perspective the point of the site is to appeal to a larger audience than that, which is why I chose that name. Outside the Finnish Bitcoin community many consider Bitcoin "bittiraha". These are the people that I want. Smiley

Nice to see a Finnish Bitcoin site in development. Smiley

So, what will the site be like? Kind of like Weusecoins.com but for us Finns?

I'm pretty sucky when it comes to vector drawing, but the least I can do is try, no? Tongue

Thanks. Me and my partners are doing our best to create a quality Bitcoin portal. Not that there is much competition, but still. Weusecoins.com is a good comparison but think bigger. The site will be not just about information, it will have community features and many essential services. It's directed at people new to Bitcoin, people who already know about Bitcoin and it'll also have services for companies that want to use Bitcoin. So the idea is to build an everything-you-need Bitcoin portal, although not all services are necessarily there at launch time. There is a lot of work to do.

If you want to take a shot at the logo, be my guest. We don't necessarily need anything too fancy. It can be simple as long as it's elegant and looks neat. The reason I would prefer a vector logo is that we are planning to create large banners with the logo that could be used at certain events. That's why we need a logo that is workable as a small website logo and also in large prints.

Just a heads up. No submissions yet, which means that 15 bitcoins is still up for grabs. I want to remind everyone that the competition can end much earlier than the deadline. Once I find what I'm looking for, it's over.

Also I want to remind you guys that if there is a tough choice between multiple participants, the losers will receive a bonus prize for their effort. So no one who puts real effort into this will go unrewarded.

I tried (I emphasize the word 'tried')

I'll probably try finetuning this a bit.

Hello,

I also tried my hand at designing a logo and figured I'd post what I got so far. Unfortunately, the style is probably not quite fitting for the theme but I figured I'd let others decide that. So, here it is.

It's not that bad! I have a few suggestions if you'd like to tweak it.

The beginning of the logo is great (except that the first letter I is not fully visible) but the "Raha" part is first of all totally wrong color and it's not good that the letter R comes out of the background.

Second of all there is simply too many colors for such a simple logo. It would be better if the whole "ittiraha" part were the same color. Whatever you do with it, reduce the amount of different colors.

Third, it needs overall finetuning. The look needs to be perhaps a bit more glossy, more modern. Other than that it's really not that bad. Good job so far. Smiley

I think your design also has potential. It's very different but that's not necessarily bad. It requires a total color overhaul, background color is no good. The letter B needs to be of a different color as well, black makes it look too much like a Japanese letter or something. Third, the word Bittiraha.fi needs to start from higher up so it's easier to read.

Good work, with some redesign that logo could be also be workable. It's great that we have logos of different styles in this competition. Smiley

I did some recoloring and rearranging. The logo looks quite different now Smiley (I forgot to even think about the colors before I posted the first one).
