Design a logo for Glass Community Association!

Glass is looking for a logo to use on this website, letterhead and publicity material – maybe even t-shirts, hats and badges! We are asking members of our community to come up with their own design which will be entered into a competition. All entries will be judged by an independent panel and the winning design will be selected and used to promote the area.

There will be three age groups: 10s and under, under 16s and 17s and over. There will be a winner from each age group, each receiving a prize of £10 and an overall winner will be selected, receiving a £30 book token.

We have decided not to cross paths with Glass School so Glass Bridge should not be used in your design.

Things to remember when designing your logo:

  • Make it memorable
  • It should be effective without colour
  • Your logo should reduce successfully to about 2.5cm minimum and it should work large (think as big as a flag)
  • It should be relevant to Glass


  • Shape and form come first – colour is secondary
  • Leave colour to the end of your design process
  • If the logo doesn’t work in black only, colour won’t save it!
  • Avoid tones of colour – ie shading
  • Flat colour and line work best
  • Use a maximum of 2 or 3 colours

Ideas to get you thinking:

  • Think of logos you like… why do you like them?.. are they typographic (ie words only, like Coca Cola)?
  • Are they a mixture of words and an icon? (I love New York)
  • Are they simply a mark? – as used by Nike for example

How to present your Desgin:

  • If your design is made electronically – please provide a pdf or jpeg version if you can. These types of files are compatible with most other computers
  • If your design is on paper – use an A4 or similar sheet of paper with plenty of white space around it
  • Do not put your name on the same page as your design as we want the Judges to be impartial
  • By entering this competition you will be deemed to have agreed to be bound by the rules shown below
