The logos that got me suspended from @99designs 😳
I just want to show you guys this, so everybody can learn with my mistakes too... mistakes which I'm actually still trying to fully figure out, cause I know these may not the most exciting or updated logos, but I can't see what is so bad about them to get me suspended from participating on any contest... to have my account on hold.
In their email they said I've been suspended cause "At this time, the quality of your work does not fit our site standards". The "funny" part is that, it was my first contest ever on their website, and there were other logos (even on the same contest) as much dated or not exciting as mine.
It was a contest to design an icon for $190, but the part saying it was an icon only (not the whole logo) was only in a comment on the bottom of the page, which I didn't see at first, so I designed the whole logo first and posted it. After 2 logos posted (the ones on the top of the image), I realized it was just a icon, not the whole logo lol.. so I got the current company's logo and just did a simple icon (the two at the bottom of the image) using what I already used on the other logos (it's $190 so I didn't want to go much deep on it too). Well, the client afterwards said he didn't want an icon with a person on it, but at the same time I got the "you've been suspended" email from @99designs :/ I emailed them asking some explanation, I asked them to tell me exactly what I did wrong (So I can improve)... hope they will answer me.
This experience wasn't that cool, it's very sad when someone tells you that the quality of your design is not good (it may be.. depends on the client opinion right?)... but I'm sure I'm gonna take something good from it ^^ Let me know your thoughts about these logos, you can be sincere, I know they aren't the best, I just don't think they are the worst on the world to suspend me from @99designs!
Logo que me fez ser suspensa do 99designs :/ estou postando pois é com erros que aprendemos (mesmo eu não achando o logo "ruim"o suficiente para suspensão, mas no final das contas é questão de opinião ^^).
