thank you all for all your information. We've found what we're looking for...for now.
We need a good, unique, animated 3d logo (rotating or other) to use as the beginning of a branding campaign and cornerstone of a new website. The logo needs to be non-business specific (could be used anywhere), useable on a white background, and be in simple colors (so it can be used on shirts, stationery, etc). A stationary version will be needed and needs to look just as good.
We will be looking for the best design for the money, until we find what we need. A hosting/reselling account may be available as well. We will also have future logo/design requirements for other clients. Please post price and links to logos or portfolio. Logos without pricing won't be considered.
I've seen some of the quality work that comes out of this place on occasion, so I know we'll find something.
We'd like to keep the logo totally abstract, so the company name would be irrelevant. We have no set limit, but obviously paying above the going rates would require it to be an exceptional piece. A simple piece that looks good and works well won't need to be that expensive and we'd be apt to buy it quicker.
I'm not saying that there is an open limit to this work, I just don't want to see poor designs. The static version needs to be easily transferred to print and embroidered logo, so it can't be complicated anyway.
