These Are Our Favorite Fstoppers Logos From The Contest

The Fstoppers Logo contest has ended and after over 1500 submissions I can say that I believe all possible avenues have been explored. Both Patrick and I went through every single logo one by one separately and we narrowed them down to our favorite 17. Check out the full post to see our best options and vote on your favorites.

Try to look at each of the logos before with fresh eyes. If you truly believe that number 18 (our current logo) is the best, I want to know, but please don't vote for it just because you recognize it. I have my list of favorites already but I don't want to reveal them at this point. I want to hear what you guys think.

So far number 1 is ahead. I love to hear from you guys why you like this one so much and for those of you who don't like, I'd also like to hear why.

I like this logo because its clean and simple. You aren't a graphic design firm to have a complex logo. Simplicity sometimes is better.

Why I don't like it? Makes fstoppers look like an Adobe product.

Think 1 is my fav probably, but can def see the Adobe comparison

I don't dislike this logo, although I do find it hard to read the "f" as an "f" if I wasn't aware of the site to begin with.

I think the logo lettering needs to match the text of the site name spelled out below, which makes me lean away from this one. I think the logo is really cool and clean looking, but the site name following seems dissonant from the logo and doesn't appear to belong.

#1 is hard to look at for me. The little blur in the middle messes with my eyes. Makes me want to try to focus, but just want to look away.

I like this one, but I don't see the point in the light grey area in the middle of the "S"

Definitely one of the best, but the light grey area looks like a blur and needs to go..

#2 I really like this logo but I think the grey
box on the s may make the logo hard to manipulate.

When i look at one, i think of an image that has been blown up to see the pixels. that one sqaure of gray just makes the entire logo and what FStoppers is about. MY VOTE

Favorite one. By far I think. As of this comment, number 3 is leading and it wasn't even in my top 3. Number 1 is clean, simple, modern and easy to read. Complex enough to be clever, yet simple in design. I could go with or without the grey square in the S. I see why the designer did it though in order to create separation for the F. Wonder if a space for seperation would be more well received.

Number 1 is very difficult to extract but in the long run, if we keep staring at it for more than 1 minute (though a symbol must be directly recognized) I found that it might represent the inner box of a digital cam...maybe...? but it took me too long.

#11 showed some potential but the S sticks out too much which defeats the purpose of highlighting the F more.

#10 is not bad but can't really tell if the f is first or last in the design

Most of teh other s I ahve seen before...some looks close to airline designs while some are really not cutting it. #18 is a def no...it's nice to see something that would speak more about what you do while still showing a branding effect of your business. I would have tried my hand at this but it seems the contest is over.

Reads as SF to me, somewhat confusing imo.

#2 Simply looks like a tennis shoe logo to me. After checking out your website...you guys really show so much quality, I think that should reflect in your logo. Simple is good in it's place...not here.

This one is the best by far....But then again I love sleek lines and things that make you take double look/ think

where did you find this one?

the mighty google

I can see the similarity in shape but it is not the same. There is only so much you can do with the letter's S & F. I googled this image you posted as well and it is not even a real logo. Art in any of its form will ALWAYS look and sound similar to another, no matter how unique you believe it is.

I believe this is the best design out of the logos you have posted. It is a clean, modern, and read's well. I absolutely love the white/gray on the black background with the sleek lines. The font accents the symbol really well and gives it some class with the spaced out kerning. I can definitely see this working as the FSTOPPERS logo. Great job!

Reminds me of the Enron logo or the old Silicon Graphics logo, hard to tell it's FS.

First thing I thought of was Enron. Never good to see a logo and think of another brand.

#3 Kinda looks like a big E and I have to try to make it out. I don't want to have to try...lol Just doesn't do anything for me.

#1 This one might be my favorite. It seems to be the strongest overall design. I like the emblem and the font choice he chose to go with it. A lot of the logos I feel like the emblem is good but what were they thinking when they chose the font to go with it?
