***Word Nerd Home Logo Contest***

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest


We are opening a contest to choose an official logo for the Word Nerd Home for all our members to participate, woohoo!!! The logos should be submitted by PM to Monica (lovincook) and have to follow the following guidelines. Do not post your entries in this thread which will be used only to clear your doubts and questions.

Logo Contest Guidelines

1) Members are allowed to submit a maximum of 2 entries.

2) Logos should be submitted in jpg or png format with a 200 dpi quality and not smaller than 800 px in width.

3) They have to include the words: "Word Nerd Home" or "Home of the Word Nerds" and may or may not be accompanied by a graphic and the phrase "David Cook Fans United". The logos submitted cannot involve an image of David.

4) Designs should be able to work both in colors and in greyscale

5) Deadline: June 14th, 2009 Sunday, June 21st

Disclaimer: By submitting an entry you agree to give up all rights of your designed logo to Word Nerd Home. It will be further used in the forum, the WNH site and for any other purpose the founders of the WNH deem appropriate.


The Moderators of the forum will judge the submitted logos and choose the winning one. This will be done anonymously, that is, we won't know who submitted each entry. Monica (lovincook) will not be included in the judging since she will be aware of the creator of each entry. The winning logo will be published in this thread crediting the creator who will be awarded a very special prize as yet to be determined. :acookie: (no, we won't be able to set up a date with David for you LOL Face )

So, put your thinking and designing caps on and make us proud Very Happy

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Further definitions:

Logo = "A logo is a graphical element (ideogram, symbol, emblem, icon, sign) that, together with its logotype (a uniquely set and arranged typeface) form a trademark or commercial brand. Typically, a logo's design is for immediate recognition."

dpi = dots per inch (printing and screen definition unit)

Here's my first. Mods, let me know if I need to change or correct something. (This was done out of pure bordem, might I add). Smile
Oh, what does DPI mean? Sorry, lol.

I know we have a lot of talented Word Nerds here, so I'm hoping to see lots of entries...

Please don't post your entries here, though. We Mods will be voting - except for Monica who is collecting them - and we don't want to know who did what before we vote. PM your entries to Monica... lovincook.

CJeann - I'm going to remove your first entry from the post above and PM it to Monica for you. Smile And "dpi" is dots per inch. A higher dpi means the picture is clearer and more detailed.

I'm a little confused, is it a Logo we need to submit or a banner? isn't What CJeann posted a banner?

We are looking for a logo not a banner.

"A logo is a graphical element (ideogram, symbol, emblem, icon, sign) that, together with its logotype (a uniquely set and arranged typeface) form a trademark or commercial brand. Typically, a logo's design is for immediate recognition."


Examples of well known car company logos are:





Also, designers cannot use images of David. I'll be adding these definitions to the Logo Contest Guidelines OP for better reference.

Uhm, I have a HUGE favor....
Is it possible to extend the deadline a little bit longer?
Please!

I want to participate, but I'm not sure if I can make it on time.. Very Sad
My creative juices do not continuously flow especially with the awareness of time constraints.

If not, then it's totally fine. Smile

I've received 2 beautiful logos... and I'm eagerly awaiting more!

So just to clarify - the logo will be replacing the top banner which currently says "Home of the Wordnerds, David Cook Fans United" right?

ETA: OK, I sent mine in. I know there are a lot more people here that are more proficient at Photoshop than I am (and have more artistic ability) - but I thought I'd try my hand, it's worth a shot.

If I have some time I might try to make a second one to send in Very Happy

Are we supposed to uhh...draw??


Hi rachelkhoo! Welcome to the Home, woohoo! Well, yes, you are supposed to draw, either by hand and scan your work at a 200/300 dpi resolution or use any software out there to do it. Very Happy

Give it a try if you know how to go about either of those options! Very Happy

Like garpods here who's going to draw! Good for you, Ashley!!!

Sorry... We somehow missed this question! It seems Made hasn't been in this thread in a while. I'll send her in here to answer these last couple of questions. I do not know enough about graphic design, unfortunately!

The scanner software has a function where you can set it to scan at a 200 or 300 dpi.

@molly4DC wrote:

800 px both in height and width if it's a square and 800 px width for landscape oriented ones and 800 px for portrait oriented ones.

Please PM me if you have further doubts or questions. Very Happy

I will expect bumper stickers and tatoo art and t-shirts from the winning logo.
Do we get to see at least the top 10?

lol - WNH tats? Now that would be awesome.

I think we were only planning on unveiling the winner. If we show the top 10 it will just cause people to question our decision. Laughing 'Cause everyone would like a different one.

Ashley, I received your logo, and i think you are being too hard on yourself. You're very talented!

I've received a lot of logos so far, and I can say that this is going to be a VERY DIFFICULT decision for the mods to make. I'm positive we will have a fantastic logo, no matter which one is chosen. Great

If you haven't heard back from Made, you can try sending her another PM. We receive so many PMs, that it is possible it got lost in the shuffle.
