Challenge Summary

Welcome to FUSE Logo Design Challenge

We need your imagination and creativity to design a brand new and fresh logo for an application from a company. The app is called “FUSE” and we are looking forward to seeing modern and fresh logos that represent the company brand and also add originality to the FUSE concept.

Best of luck!

Round 1

Round One (1)
For your R1 deliverables please submit following items for client review:
1) FUSE Standalone Logo
2) FUSE Logo Variation
3) Icon for iPhone 6 with mockup (120x120)

Please provide us a graphic note with the meaning/purpose that will help us understanding your logo.

Round 2

Final design will contain all following items plus any updates from client feedback:
1) FUSE Standalone Logo
2) FUSE Logo Variation

The primary goal of this challenge is to design a unique and enticing logo for a branch app from the company client. It will be used for desktop application, iPhone, and iPad applications. This logo must convey professionalism, innovation, with a focus on technology.

The FUSE application allows the customer to manage their investment professionals who manage investments throughout the entire lifecycle, from prospecting to investment approval to ongoing monitoring after the company invests. This application will help the customer support their mobile, global investment teams.

Branding Guidelines
- Follow the attached branding document for colors and fonts usage.
- Logo.svg file is attached for a specific use, see more below (#2 in logo requirements section).
- Branding fonts cannot be provided during the competition phase. Find some similar approaches. You’ll be asked to replace them as final fixes. Also, we’d like to use Trade Gothic as much as possible, not limited to that though.

Concepts Goals
Our vision of the visual feeling of the logo is tied to modern, professional, sleek, innovative, with a focus on technology.

Some trends to consider are negative space, letterstacking, flatness.

Consider the meaning of the app as key factors for your design process. FUSE stands for:
- F: funnel management (prospecting funnel).
- U: updates on prospects and portfolio companies.
- S: survey how all the portfolio companies are doing.
- E: explore, evaluate, educate oneself with materials and scheduling.

- Financial Services 
- Innovative 
- Professional 
- Collaborative 
- Forward-thinking Technology
