Hatchwise featured in article about logo design in April issue of Inc Magazine

There was much excitement around the office today when upon checking the mail, we got our copy of the April issue of Inc Magazine, and found out that Hatchwise had been included in an article about logo design.

The article chronicles small business owner Steve Whitesell’s journey to develop a new brand for his company, and in the process he tries out a number of different design services, including Hatchwise. Guess which one was his favorite?

In Steve’s words:

“From Hatchwise, I received the most entries — 219. They were also the highest caliber. By the fifth day, I found four or five designers I really liked and started working intensely with them. When I posted a comment for one designer, all the others could see it, and it felt like they were learning about my preferences as a group. I also liked that Hatchwise let me rank the logos as I went along.”

Steve ran the logo design contest to come up with a new logo for his company, Radian. You can check out the archived contest here.

Most of the credit for the success of Steve’s contest (as well as every other successful contest hosted on Hatchwise) obviously needs to go to our talented, inspired community of designers, without all of you, there obviously is no Hatchwise. Thank you for your participation.

You can read the web version of the article on Inc.com (sadly, sans logos). Below are a few snapshots of the actual magazine article, pretty blurry but they get the idea across:
