Liedergarten is german and consists of two words: "Lieder" (songs) and "Garten" (garden); it's like a garden where songs are growing.
We like organic fonts, but we are open minded. Very important: the font must match the style of the symbol or logo.
We got a lot of variations, but are missing versions with a retro style. We like organic styles, but were also surprised by a non-organic, very clean and simple version of a submission (unfortunately it was withdrawn by the designer)… so improve your existing submissions or try new things.
Liedergarten. There exists a huge amount of symbols or icons around the topic „song“ or „garden“ (just do a google image search to get some inspiration). It could also show parts of an instrument (favorites are guitar and saxophone). Try something different. Be creative. Until now we don’t like trees, plantpots, people, big animals/creatures in the logo. The symbol should also be related to a positive feeling and be full of the joys of spring.
If you create an non-obvious logo/style/symbol, please explain it to us (maybe we overlook something or just want to know the intention behind you design).
In general, less is more (actually it depends on the color schema). In the first round it’s important to be able to get an idea and the possibility to print it even in grayscale.
We don’t want to discuss with designers about who copied which symbol as long as it’s obvious related to „song“, „music“ or „garden“. On the other side we don’t support copying unique styles and non-obvious ideas from others.
At the end we decide to go with a designer who understand our needs and is able to match our expectations in terms of design, creativity and communication.
