Welcome to the first Coursetro Design Challenge! In this challenge, you're tasked with designing a logo for an AI company called "Flabbi"
This artificial company has created a chat bot that gives users nutritional information on demand, through chat applications such as Facebook Messenger, Slack, Skype, etc..
A user might say, "How many calories are in a donut?" and it will let them know within seconds. Simple enough, right?
Here are the design requirements:
And that's it! Good luck.
1 winner will receive:
This logo design is a combination of heart ( Representing health ) And also two circles representing the idea that it is a bot.
The colour scheme I have chosen was to keep it in different shades of green to give it a more fresh & healthy look.
I hope you like it :D
I tried to combine food and bot together in one design. I also made green background (Gradient) because it reminds me of health and natural food. I had a great time making this logo, I still think it could be improved but I hope you will like it!!
Hope I submitted this correctly. I tried to keep it extremely simple. Abstract look achieved using only stroke effects. I did not want to go for any shading. The font type was chosen to be a little more friendly and representative of the character it is naming. Oh and I made the robot fat because.... well because his name is Flabbi, as in flab... as in fat..... so, you know...
Too much happening here with all of the various shapes, along with the glossiness of the colors you added. Also, I'd remove that shape light blue shape beneath the chat icon, what is that?! Simplify this, and I would work on a lot better typeface.
I think showing the logo on a 100% white background would give it more justice. The medium gray doesn't work well. Aside from that, I do like that it is quite unique and more abstract. The size of the symbol is a bit too big in relation to the wordmark. Thanks.
**Updated** Thanks for the initial critique. I can see what could have been done better now (and for future designs). I think I was focusing too much on the design of just the symbol that I lost sight of the overall presentation. I updated my design, although I'm not sure if I'm allowed to resubmit. I'm looking forward to doing more challenges.
Hi. Too complex here. The circuitry, interlocking with a brain, the brain folds, the message icon, the antenna -- *way* too much. Simplify, simplify, simplify. All of the colors with the gray stroke, green, dark blue, yellow, and green -- too complex here as well.
***UPDATED*** Hopefully this simplifies my idea and no explanation is needed. :)
Hi. It's a big no-no combining shapes with varying colors like you did. The gray circle overlapping the green-stroked orange wordmark container --- too complex and does not flow well. The gray with the green and orange also doesn't really fit together well. I'd simplify things here a lot.
I went for a fun, friendly design, while still including all the necessary components - bots, messaging and health.
Also, the color palette resembles a watermelon, which is in the whole theme.
Not a terrible entry. I think you tried to do too much though with the color via the gradients, glows, etc.. It's also too complex with all that's happening in the main symbol, as well as the secondary "chat" symbol separated from it. The flabbi typeface doesn't really fit well with the aesthetics of the symbol you designed. Thanks for your entry.
