A lot of new entries! Nice job everyone. I have some comments:

jojkaart: Take the right side reverse B off. It doesn't work. Then merge the "Bittiraha.fi" section with the left circle in a way that it comes out from the center of the circle (currently it's slightly too high). Then change the font of the Bittiraha.fi text, I decided I don't like it. Third, for the B you could try a color that is a little more orange and I also think that the whole B circle could be a bit smaller. This logo has potential so don't give up. Smiley

FastAndViral: This is a good start but it needs work. The background area is too big and the text is not sharp enough. Also the coloring doesn't work at all, here it's important to remind that it's two Finnish words "Bitti" and "raha" so coloring it that way doesn't work. Also the white/gray is not a very clear color, readability is key. It has potential with some tweaking though.

foggyb: Nice submission! My favorites are the 2nd one, 4th one and the last one. Those might require some tweaking but overall your submission is the most polished so far. I don't have any further comments for now, I need to let others in my team review these submissions as well.

bbulker: Your entry is clean and simple, which is good. But I wonder if it's too simple, I have to think about that. It's a solid entry anyways, thanks a lot.

bitcoinhero: Cheesy I don't know if you're serious with the entry, but the colors don't match anyway.

Matoking: Yes, it could be that you've met your match in this competition. Thanks for trying! Smiley

OK, that's a nice game. I'll play it!  Grin

Here's my contribution to your quest.

So what's been going on in my head to get to this?
Well, I've started with your national flag which is white with a blue cross in it. The logo is to be used purely for a Finnish site so a bit of Finnish nationality was in order here. I went on splitting the "Bit" part and the "tiraha" part to emphasize the Bitcoin meaning somewhat more from the Finnish word for money. And I wanted to emphasize the internet and you provided the missing link yourself, the .fi part.

So roughly something like this. But then blue. And the vertical text 90 degrees rotated...You get the point.  Roll Eyes
   B
   I
Bittiraha.fi
   i
   r
   a
   h
   a
   .
   f
   i

So what I've ended up with
But just crossing two times the words in blue was a bit too simple. And Bitcoiners are smart people. And that should be emphasized too.  Cool So my conclusion was to ditch everything and only leave the two lowercase T's in the middle to indicate that something special was going on there.

See it as data compression. Data can be omitted because a smart algorithm knows what should go in there. Something like that.

But I' m going off topic here.

The line on top and at the bottom of those lowercase T's are the i's from The Bit and the tiraha words emphasizing the Finnish cross between Bit(coins) and money somewhat more. That left me with the top left logo.

Nice but still missing something. The name then, to help the newbies a little maybe? So that went into the top i. That's middle right.

OK, let's play a little with different styles of this concept. So skewing it a bit. Top right. Laying it out somewhat flat making it fly a little more. Nice. Could be Bitcoins flying around in Finland. That's middle left B.T.W. Doing a light shadow and a slightly different position giving it more depth. Always good to tell your visitors that you site has many facets. Worthy of a in-depth look hm? That's bottom right.

And the odd one out, the corporate banking look. Original logo with a border system.

So here it is. Have fun!

tahoda: your submission as it is now makes little sense and I wonder if the reason could be that "tiraha" doesn't mean anything in Finnish. It's two words "bitti" and "raha" and the first one means bit (as in megabit) and the second one means money. I will add this information to the first post because this is now the second time there is confusion about this.

I'm sorry that this wasn't made clear at first. I didn't realize it could be a problem, probably because Finnish is my first language.

foggyb: I have some new feedback for you. I decided that I actually like the first logo a lot in some ways but it has issues with the B box. In fact all the B boxes look weird, the 3D of the box is wrong way around somehow. I would like to see two new versions of the first logo, one with the B box changed to basic 2D and another one where the box is turned other way around with the extra B removed from the side of the box, it's unnecessary. The .fi box in the logo looks fabulous and font/colors are good so no problems there.

I think that with some tweaks your submission has a good chance in this competition, at least judging from the participants so far. The only thing I'm worried about is that your sub looks very similar to the Facebook logo in terms of colors and font but I'm not sure if that matters.

For others: Competition is still on, the logo hasn't been chosen yet. Also, with the number of contestants so far I will at least give a bonus price to the 2nd best. Good luck guys.

ow... Roll Eyes

Thanks for the update. That almost destroys my concept. Cool

No matter. I've already started to make repairs.

Let's see, I wanted to keep the web-bit in the .fi and the flag thing. Ah yes, and the drop shadow for the depth. Let's take that as a start en build from there...

Great job everyone!

Competition is still very much on. So far foggyb and FastAndViral hold the top 2 spots so they are the ones to beat. We haven't found what we're looking for just yet so there is time. We are definitely getting closer though. Next I have some comments regarding new submissions.

tahoda: I'm still not really into your concept, it needs a lot of work. It's a bit too complex. Thanks for trying though. Smiley

N.Olmos: Forget the flag concept entirely if you want to try again. That logo is not what we're looking for. Thank you for the submission anyway!

foggyb: Good work! If you're up to it, I would still like to a see a couple of different versions with the following instructions. Merge the third and fourth logos in a way that it's exactly the same as the third logo except that it uses the B box from the fourth logo. The symmetry of the fourth logo is great but then again I love the .fi box from the third, but in that one the B box doesn't work well. My second wish is that I'd see some of your logos in a totally different coloring, I'd suggest Bitcoin-orange or something close to that.

FastAndViral: You're in top 2 with your newest submission. More specifically the third logo looks really neat. You could try moving the text tiny bit higher because it doesn't look symmetric enough to me. Also a version with the underline removed from the text would be interesting to see for comparison. One in our team liked the first logo as well, that one could work with different coloring (perhaps orange) but not as it is now. Second one is non-workable.

To everyone:

Please refrain from submitting anything that is focused on a Finnish theme. This is not about nationality, it's about Bitcoin and Bitcoin is very much international. I can accept using white and blue but the flag goes way too far.

In conclusion: We have enough submissions with blue as the main color.

I need you guys to come up with a few more using totally different colors such as orange, which is often associated with Bitcoin.


Good luck everyone!

I still haven't seen any submissions that have a theme based on anything that makes Bitcoin what it is. Except some that simply use the Bitcoin logo. Technology, computers, cryptography, p2p, money, freedom. There are a lot of concepts that make 100 times more sense than a Finnish theme, so step it up guys. It's a Finnish site but it's not about Finland, it's about Bitcoin. Smiley

I've made a simple one just to test the colors:



What do you think? I designed the Bitcoin logo myself. It's very similar to the original.

EDIT: I forgot the ".fi" in the first one.

I guess I better give it a shot since everything here so far looks like it was done in paintbrush. (No offense)

Good job guys, once again.

FastAndViral: Really nice submissions. My favorite is the one with the blue background, the second version without bold/shadows. It's really easy to read and looks neat. The ones where you had your own Bitcoin logo would need some work, they are not as clear to read as some of the other ones. The logo seems like it is slightly transparent which doesn't look good compared to the ones used in the blue-background logos, where the orange is stronger.

tahoda: That's more like it! I think the symmetry of the whole logo needs some work though. The text does not align well with the graphics, it looks a bit off. Also the color of the blue streak is perhaps a bit too strong/bright blue, strikes out too much. Nothing else for now, that is a very promising submission. Thanks.

Matthew: I hope you give it a shot. The quality of the submissions so far has a lot of variety but they are not all bad. I really like some of them. So do your best if you participate. Smiley

I don't have access to adobe fireworks on this computer so I used paint. I know its rough but it is only one of my ideas and isn't finished. I just thought I would post something for now.
I will finish this later today and throw in my other ideas. The others don't use the finish flag.


If I may make a suggestion for software if you don't have Fireworks, try Inkscape (Google for it). It's open source, it's vector based and has much support for vector file formats.

Oh yes, someone told me that the flag was definitely out. See the above messages... Smiley

Yep, it was a very quick sketch. Just to see if this was the correct path to follow. Good that we are, at last, synchronized on design strategy. Smiley

edit: ok, couldn't resist some quick changes...

http://i.imgur.com/eC0j3.png

- slight re-alignment of the bitcoin blocks;
- made text somewhat smaller in length and positioned it a bit neater with the bitcoin blocks;
- made the blue stock exchange graph [or the path which connects the bitcoiners - you may choose] a bit more soft colored by adding a gradient.

Keep it up guys. My team is planning to start reviewing the best submissions internally later this week, hopefully all who wish to participate have participated by then. The deadline in the first post is the latest date that doesn't kill our schedule but we would prefer to have the logo earlier than that.

tahoda: There is still an issue with positioning/symmetry. I can't quite pinpoint what I'd like done with it, but it still requires tweaking. The blue streak is also not much better now, it has too strong of a gradient which makes it look too light. Something between the first version and the later version could work as far as the streak is concerned but the symmetry of the whole logo is a bigger issue that you should concentrate on if you wish to have a competitive entry.

I do know what was wrong. The blocks weren't completely symmetrical yet. Fixed that and...made some variations. Both on blocks and texts.
