Creative Brief

Contest title: Bluewater Publishing Logo Design
Sub title: Strong logo for our military customers
Category: Logo Design
Brand Name: Bluewater Publishing

Logo for our publishing company. We publish books for the US NAVY and want something that reflects strength, patriotism and blue-water.


Our primary customer is the US Military and the US NAVY in particular. We are thinking something like a wave that crests in the shape of an eagles head with text below. We publish books that are records of their overseas deployments similar to a yearbook and distributed to individual Sailors and Marines. The logo needs to have a strong look but not too heavy and we will need it available in one color, B&W and as a CMYK with midtones, etc.

Our website is if you want to get a better idea of what we do. Our current logo is just a stock clipart and is fairly weak.

What I want:

Prefer the logo to be created with blue tones. It needs to be fairly compact, more in the shape of a square or rectangle. Text should be stacked in two lines.

What I don't Want:

No long drawn out text lines. Nothing dainty or thin.

I like the general idea on #4 & % but the eagle looks more like a seagull.

Dear Sir, as it is just a suggestion that please hide all published designs to make sure that everybody is using their creativity not copying or enhancing the published designs so then u can get variety.
