Hello Designers and thank you for checking out my project!
NOTE: I NEED 2 DIFFERENT ICONS side-by-side as one logo.
Here is the overall summary of this contest description summed up in a couples sentences:
In sum, I’m looking for two different icons that represent custom homes, but each of them have a different twist and color scheme. They will be side-by-side in one image.
1.) The Precision-Crafted design should be on the left, colors should be blue and white, and should represent wood-framed, highly detailed, complex, very precise, extremely accurate, angles, high quality. And
2.) ICF-Crafted design should be on the right, colors should be green and gray, and should represent thick/sturdy/durable walls and concrete walls, kind of like a fortress. It's important to show thicker walls here compared to Precision-Crafted, and ideally it can show the gray concrete inside of the walls.
More detailed information and inspiration is below:
We offer two types of custom homes that are very unique and both use building technology that is much more advanced than anyone else in the USA. The two types of custom homes that will have their own logo/design are:
I need to show that these are the most cutting edge types of homes available. Note: These are custom homes, so the less generic the design, the better.
TARGET AUDIENCE: People looking to have a new custom home built, that want the best and highest quality home possible.
Both of these logos should be very modern and should have no hint of classic/old/traditional design. These two icons will be used side-by-side a lot. They should have different color schemes and designs, but the same style.
Each icon should have something in it that represents a home in some way.
**PLEASE DO NOT USE ANY STOCK OR TEMPLATE DESIGNS** If it is possible to see the design or major components of the design anywhere else, it should not be submitted. Please do not use any hammers, nails, or hardhats in the design, as it is too stereotypical. These designs need to be 100% original.
----- ABOUT EACH TYPE OF HOME -----
These homes are wood-framed homes. These homes are the most precise, accurate, and high quality homes available. They are essentially built perfectly with tons of the most advanced angles cut so that everything not only fits together perfectly, but it also interlocks.
DESIGN DIRECTION: I would like for this home type to have blue as the primary color, and white as the secondary color. Here are some characteristics of these homes that could be represented in the design:
a.) Very detailed
---This could be done by showing angles and shading.
b.) Extremely accurate and precise construction (homes built within a millimeter of architectural plans/blueprints). Literally zero missed nails and screws.
---This could be shown by using lines and dimensions, just like blueprints of homes do. Or some sort of 3D to show that it is highly detailed. Could also show how the lumber is cut to interlock.
c.) The highest quality materials
d.) Very clean-cut design
---Possibly use a shine or reflection to show perfect and clean design and construction
Some design ideas for direction of needed: Design could show many angles and shading , could have some sort of shine or reflection to it to show the high quality of it, could use dimensions and measurements like blueprints to show accuracy, could use blue vertical stripes on home to show wood studs and framing, could show how the lumber interlocks perfectly. Most likely, all of these things together in one design will be way too much, but I hope it helps you generate ideas!
These are homes made of concrete walls. They are built with Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs), which are white Styrofoam blocks filled with 6 inches of concrete. In a way, they are like a fortress because of how strong and durable they are.
These homes are the most durable, noise-resistant, wind-resistant, and energy efficient homes that can be built. The very thick concrete walls make these homes the sturdiest homes possible, kind of like a fortress.
DESIGN DIRECTION: I would like for this home type to have green as the primary color, and gray as the secondary color. The gray should look like concrete or represent concrete. I would like the design to show the concrete (possibly with the Styrofoam on each side), and also show the thickness and sturdiness of it. Although these homes have thick concrete walls, it should still appear that these homes are beautiful and elite instead of an old concrete look. Here are some characteristics of these homes that could be represented in the design:
a.) Very thick, sturdy, and durable walls
-This could be done by showing thick and wide concrete walls on the home, with a layer of white on each side (like the ICF walls when they are filled with concrete). Could possibly show the texture of concrete if it fits the rest of the design. *** It's important to show thicker walls here compared to Precision-Crafted, and ideally it can show the gray concrete inside of the walls. ***
***** Please place both designs/Icons in one image in your submission since they will be used side-by-side. Please place the Precision-Crafted design on the left, and the ICF-Crafted design on the right. *****
I’m happy to answer any questions if needed.
