1 if I was forced to choose. Maybe do like the LA Chargers and tell us these aren't the final designs.
Lol, I haven't seen any of these logos or slogans until right now.
Not a fan of any, so you don't have much to worry about.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Although I don't like any of them , I would like to point out that the actual words Dansdeals on the 3rd option has some uniquness. But it's not as clear as the other ones.

Maybe Dan can run a contest who can come up with the best logo, I'm sure there a handful of graphic designers on here.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.

Also, people in it, have a much better feeling of what a logo should look like then some random graphics artist.

All three designs are very typical double letter concepts.

I'm sure that you're aware of the fiverr concept as well.

I'll echo what others wrote:
1. All three are - no offense - fugly, even the existing (DD back to back) is better than those.
2. There should be a none-of-the-above option in the poll. 1 and 3 definitely resemble beatz
3. There should be a contest with DDMS voting, a prize would be nice (you can exclude DDF mods if you'd like, I don't have an eye for design anyway :D)
4. Is DDMS getting a facelift as well? Very exciting!
5. What's the full scoop on the legality of the apostrophe?

I'm sure that you're aware of the fiverr concept as well.

https://www.fiverr.com/

I've used http://www.zilliondesigns.com/ and was very satisfied. From the looks of it with fiverr you choose the designer who then designs for you. With zilliondesigns a bunch of designers submit their designs for you to choose from.

Zillion sounds like a better concept. Fiverr is like you said you pick your designer beforehand.

The designer should definitely be paid for his/her work.

So far 2 takes the cake, but a contest would be nice

Since when do you have a say in this? ;)

I do have to agree that both options 1 and 3 are quite similar to the beats logo. A contest would probably yield the most creativity being that it is from a group rather than an individual. Maybe a contest for a slogan would work too?
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

We already had a contest (or discussion?) about a new slogan, IIRC there was weed involved.
