Well if its judged by effort I think ITDude has put the most into it.

@Daniel: it really depends on what your looking for i.e. slightly cartoony if so #171 is great, something more professional then #141 is cool, something inbetween would be more like #124-127

Here is my top ten:

1. #141 regoesfaster - This one for me brings a professional look and as someone said exellent favicon
2. #127 itdude
3. #126 itdude
4. #206 itdude
5. #171 Rekollekt
6. #205 itdude
7. #93 vicafo
8. #138 redgoesfaster - with a change of font though!
9. #142 redgoesfaster
10. The green one in #143 - well had to get mine in somewhere!!

Reckon its a straight fight between redgoesfaster and itdude - may the best logo win!!!!!!

I think it might be better removing stuff we can all agree on we don't like.

Couldnt there be some kind of poll or voting system put on the forum if you want us all to vote. That way its clear to you what the community likes.

If you want me to set something simple up I can do it on one of my sites Im sure. Especially if you give me a top 20 for folk to vote on. Just let me know via PM.

I like Alberts too, very nice work dude O0

You'd think the site that hosts the contest would have a polling system

There are a lot of good designs put up so far. I don't know if it'd be best to "remove" the least appreciated ones as that could come across as a slight to those who'd made those designs. Might be better to have some sort of "runoff", to narrow down favourites among everyone here. Would be nice if the place did have a built in polling system, but that could get abused too, I suppose. Anyway.....I wonder if maybe any of us interested in this matter could just post say our 10 or so most favourite designs, either in this thread, or start a separate one once the ending for submissions has come about, as then there are no extras showing up at that point. We can narrow down from there. Clearly Daniel has the final say and we need to respect that, but it is nice if we can have some input and maybe explain why we like what we do.

At this point, I've made a list of 12 (a few variants on a few of those as well) that I feel are among the best so far. There were 232 as of this posting, so any after that may change my list. But here goes (in numerical order, not in order of preference):


13
Though I'm not sure about this one being really practical, I love the use of the tag on this one. Probably the best "tag" formatted design so far. Even if OC doesn't use this one, it's a great idea for someone, somewhere, someday.

47
Not the most exciting design, but it does have simplicity and cleanliness to it. The colours could be adjusted to something else maybe more appealing.

79
Like with 13 above, not sure about this for here and now, but a good use of the "bag" format. Quite nice, and possibly useful for someone somewhere. The only drawback is the letters on the bag end up being kinda small overall. But, definitely a worthy design here.

97
Abstract and different, but clean and nice. The one big drawback on this is the letters, etc. are kind of thin and not solid enough. This approach in a bolder mode might be awesome.

123 / 152
What I like in these two is the OC element. That has a *logo* feel to it, and brings a symbol to identify OC with to the table in a nice way. In 123 the type used for OpenCart is not the best, and in 152 I'm not overly fond of it below as much as beside the symbol. But this approach is nice, and well worth a variation that does take it straight to the top.

135
I'm trying to think of what this reminds me of, but that's not important. It's simple and elegant. Maybe a bit too simple, but still, it's effective. Even if not overly *exciting* per se.


141
Honourable mention to 142 beside it, but 141 is better in my opinion. Still, neither is perfect. What I love is the use of the O and C into a unique symbol format, and then the OpenCart name beneath it. The symbol is what rocks here, but the colour format isn't ideal to me. I always try to view potential logos in B/W or at least greyscale, and if it doesn't cut it, then I am not as keen on it. So, if this were adjusted to be a more B/W/Greyscale friendly design, it'd be all the better. Definitely a good approach, just needs a bit more refining to be prime time excellent.

164
Though I like LukeConcept's (see next entry) direction on this theme better, I liked the results on this one, along with the colour scheme, better. Basically, if the symbol were mirrored so the cart is pointing toward the OC words, and the lower point pointing to the bottom of the OC words as well (more like LukeConcept's!), this would be much better than it is. So, a 15 second adjustment on this design would move it way up the scale considerably. But it's simple, plain, effective, and yet elegant. With that one change, this would be a top notch design.

167 / 208
I like 167 of these two better, but 208 is a nicer colour and a bit bolder. But 167's mirror effect adds a really nice elegance to the feel of things. I like the direction of the cart symbol on this better than Seamar's above, but like a lot of what LC has done here too. I think if the best of these two designs were combined, we'd have a strikingly simple, but powerful design.

195
This isn't my favourite, but there are some nice elements to it. What boggles me, though, is the way the O is angled so that the depth gives an appearance of a C, but backwards. In otherwords, if the O were "rotated" in the opposite direction, you'd get the O with the C inner effect more properly, which would make it nicer. Along with the remaining lettering, it's nice. Not sure how well this would be in B/W, though, but in colour it's decent. Just that rotation matter that seems to distract on this one.

203 / 202 / 205
itdude's got some nice variations here! Of these, I like 203 the best, but I somewhat like the larger cart and it being in front as in 202.....but not enough to like it better in the end. 205 with the cart above allows for splitting the elements when needed, but the cart seems *too* large here as well. What rocks about this design is the simplicity of things, along with the elegance, and the clear, yet somewhat abstract cart. I love the use of the two shades for the word colours, and then the cart alongside it. The R or TM symbol would be up to Daniel and what's feasible in that respect, but other than that this is an excellent design, and probably the one I'd pick at the moment if I had to choose one right now.

212
The curly C in the O is a nice, catchy element to this. The opencart letters below it are nicely differentiated, but should maybe be a bit bolder, so they aren't lost against the background as easily. The curly O/C could maybe use a tiny bit more thickness (bolder) to it too. This would look great on a T-shirt! Nice design overall.

So, at the moment, there are a lot of good designs here. A few need a little bit of work or adjustments to make them perfect, but are well worth doing so if it's decided to use them. I realize those are just my opinions at the moment, and if there are more good designs posted after 232, I may adjust this somewhat. But for now, that's what I like, and why. :)

Or extend the timeframe for a couple of days so a few more of us have a chance to do some design work :D

Just adding to my post above with an update to include the post-232 designs, as a few are well worthy additions to consider.

279 & 280 are in the same vein as 47 I mentioned above (same person doing all those), but I like the blue/black colour combination *much* better on these. However, not overly fond of the new "basket" images with them. Maybe taking the best of the old basket, but using the new colours would bring out the best in this approach.

238 - Don't care for the type on this, but the bar code is a very nice touch.

249 - Nice! Very plain really, but pleasant, and love the colour combination on this as well. Not overly exciting, but rather elegant in its simplicity.

250-277 - can't really mention any one here without including the whole slew of them. The abstract cart element in some of these is great, the colours are good, and the type (bolder ones) used in some is also good. The only thing that I'm not overly liking on this is that in the end the cart size and type just don't coordinate well enough....one is too heavy or too light or too large or too small alongside the other. If a good balance were found, this would be one awesome design. Very good ideas and style here, but it would need something more to really be perfect for me.

I'll have to go over all these again to see what I think, but there were some great designs in the whole lot here, and all the work everyone did should be commended. Only one can end up being the "winner" and it's always exciting to see what others do with a logo idea. And whatever Daniel decides I'm sure will be good. Hats off to everyone who contributed!
