After launching your logo design contest at 48hourslogo, your project will go through the following 3 stages before arriving at your final design.
1) Qualifying stage
During this stage, your contest is open to all registered designers. Based on your logo brief, designers will submit multiple logo concepts for you to choose from. Only contest owner can view the designs submitted during qualifying stage in order to provide feedback. Designers are not allowed to see each other’s submission in order to prevent design copying and also maximizing design creativity. The duration of the qualifying stage is between 1 to 7 days which can be set when creating the contest.
2) Design revisions stage
At the end of qualifying stage, you will be prompted to select up to 3 finalist designers to enter the “design revision stage”. During this stage, only your finalist designers are allowed to upload new designs. Also, designers are now able to see each other’s designs and continue make design improvements based on your feedback. You will have ONE week to work on the logo revisions before selecting a contest winner.
3) Finalizing stage
After selection your contest winner, you will work with your winning designer on finalizing your design. You can still request small changes and tweaks to your winning logo. When the design is finalized, your designer will upload a logo package file containing multiple file formats for your final design. Once you download and confirm the file, we will release the contest prize to the winning designer.
