Competition Time!! SWB Logo!!

Post by TLS-Moose » Jul 18th, '18, 21:56

It has been suggested that a decent logo would be good for the forum pages, and help provide a group identity. "The Management" agree. Sooooo ......

A competition is formally announced to design a logo that gives, or represents, and identity to the group.

The rules are very simple -
1. It must contain the forum URL (but you may drop the WWW. bit)
2. It mustn't be rude or offensive
3. Keep the colours few and the design simple
4. It must be sensibly sized so that it can be reduced/adjusted as required to fit the top banner
5. We will accept a maximum of two entries per person

The aspiration is to be able to turn the new logo into a sticker too, and simple designs with few colours make this easier to produce.

Entries can only be submitted, in BMP or JPEG format, via the site e-mail address "southwestbikers@hotmail.co.uk" and must be received by 21.00hrs on Friday 11th August 2018. Once all entries are collated, they will be listed in a post for voting, with a provisional closing date of a week after posting.

Prizes. Obviously the winner gets the privilege of seeing their design spread across the top of the site for all to see, and hopefully turned into site stickers too. On top of this, along with the kudos and worship from all other site members, we will wait until Simon has felt the need for some medication and pinch the keys to the merchandise locker and see what can be pilfered before he comes round. Don't get your hopes up though - he has two well trained guard hounds on duty for just such occasions!! In reality it is likely to be a years free subscription.

I think that's all, but reserve the right to amend as I feel the need if I remember something else I was supposed to mention or hadn't thought of ...... Get scribbling!

It's actually quite difficult to do this unless you already happen to be a graphic designer, or are you just looking for inspiration (pencil scribbles) and these can later be turned into proper graphics?

just looking for ideas. trying to get an idea from the people who use the forum, it could then be tweaked to be made into a usable finished design.

It is just ideas, we don't need finalised high def graphics. A sketch on a beer mat could be the winning idea 😀😀
