Help Me Choose a Logo: Round Three

| April 23, 2014 | 4 Comments

It’s been a month of a half on trying to get a logo for this site. Many of you voted on the first batch of candidates earlier in April.

The only thing conclusive in the poll was that there was no clear winner.

Additionally, most of the top candidates weren’t distinctive and some of them turned out to be stolen / repurposed from other logos.

I got a refund and kicked off another design contest. I took what I learned from the last time, including being more specific in the design brief, giving feedback even on designs I didn’t like, and rating each design as quickly as I could.

I also wanted to play off two of the most well-known guard dogs in all of mythology: the three-headed dog Cerberus and his two-headed brother Orthrus. I also asked the artists to avoid hyper-aggressive dogs, and strive for calm and watchful designs.

This round of the logo contest received almost 90 different designs, and I’ve narrowed it down to 8.

Please vote on the 8 remaining designs

I need to close the poll by midnight CDT, Friday April 25, 2014.

Thanks again for your help!

    By the way, your “#81 by Logominator” looks really familiar to me. The center especially, like I have seen the center dog used elsewhere, often.

    Other than that, I like the idea of a Cerberus.

      Hrm, thanks for mentioning that, I already busted a few stolen designs and it would be a shame if this was another one. I will do a reverse image search.

      I did a reverse lookup via and couldn’t find any matches to the center dog. Any ideas where you may have seen it?

    Ah, darn it. Gave feedback for every logo and only then noticed the passed deadline. Hope you got my thoughts.
