Winner Of The Logo Redesign Contest For Smashing Apps

As most of you guys already know that couple of week ago we had a logo redesign contest for Smashing Apps where we invited our community to take part and work around to design an upcoming logo. We have got a great response and criticism as well but still thanks to our community who understand the vision for this event. This was absolutely for bringing new talent in the front of millions of people and give chance to those who could never show their work to the world. Anyways, now let us tell you how the overall contest went for us. Collectively we have got 300+  proposed logo designs at Cullogo. Few of them are truly professional and made it hard for us to make selection because there were some very outstanding submissions. We also received some down the quality logo designs that are not worth sharing here but we will be proud to share shortlisted logos including winner of the contest.

Well, now back to the shortlisted nominations. There are around 15 logo design ideas that can be considered on different priorities but few of these are rocking and really gave us hard time to calculate multiple factors to pick out the one as the winner and no luck for others.  This doesn’t mean that those who could not win the contest didn’t design a professional logo but unfortunately we have to choose one as the winner otherwise we could have 5 or more winners who designed fine logo concepts for Smashing Apps. As our commitment, we are listing below the personal information of those designers as well who were shortlisted best nominations. You can find their name, country, twitter/facebook profile and website address where available. This is the best what we can give them in return to these guys who worked specially for us and anyone from our readers may want to get in touch with them to offer them any project. Yes, we hope it will work.

You Might be Interested to Checkout These!

Many thanks to all the participants who submitted their concepts and congratulations to those who are  featured here as shortlisted nominations.

Ok, so who is the winner?  Hakan Balkan

Yes! we really like his concept showing below as our upcoming logo. Our selection may not satisfy all our readers but believe us we put our thoughts in multiple directions and considered color schemes, simplicity, uniqueness, and experimented with our new design that is under development to empower our brand identity.  We tried our best and we hope we are successful to satisfy our valued readers.
