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
