The Brief

Objective:
• To promote and solidify my brand on my website and in print material
• Appeal to my target audience – those who have left (or are about to leave) the career phase of their lives and want to make this new phase happy and fulfilling
• Make my target audience believe I am an expert who can help them get what they want

Image:
• I help you create transformation – guide you in making positive change happen
• Knowledgeable and experienced
• Caring and compassionate
• Elegant but not stuffy

Details:
Retire and Be Happy provides information and guidance for moving through the transitions that occur in the third act of your life. Moving away from your career creates change in every aspect of your life. Although your financial security is important, your happiness and well-being come from the non-financial side life. We focus on helping you live a fulfilling and meaningful life. You gain the knowledge and insights you need through our workshops, seminars, speaking engagements, and individually tailored guidance.

I am looking for a logo that creates the image described above. We are refining my website but it will still have the same feel as the current one. http://retireandbehappy.com

I like the colors of the current site but am open to recommendations.

Target Audience

Men and women who have left (or are about to leave) the career phase of their lives and want to make this new phase happy and fulfilling

I came up with the first logo you shortlisted and then I was promptly copied. Same font. Same sun idea. It’s wrong. 2017-11-13 15:19:40 UTC

Marianne:

I agree — that is not right. This is the first time I have done this. I will investigate and certainly respect your point of view.

Sorry, I didn’t mean to come off as a jerk – it’s been a long time since I participated here and to be plagiarized on one of my first submissions back was upsetting (and surprising); I hope it’s not common nowadays. It’s not your fault, Marianne, but I hope you take it into consideration when you choose your winner.

Marianne:

You came across as one upset lady — and for good reason. You are very talented so I hope this won’t discourage you. I most definitely will take it into consideration!

Dear marcee,
I apologize.
I withdraw my design, hope you are the winner in this contest.

Update: I’ve removed several comments from this page. Comments here should only relate to asking questions of the client or from the client answering competition related questions.

If you have a beef with another designer please do it on the offending entry’s page(they all have a page you know!)

Have also forced the withdrawal or Tawon’s design which was far too close to Marcee’s original design.

Also want to specifically mention that adding some clip art to an essentially similar design is not good enough, is lazy and not terribly creative. You know who you are. So up your game please.
