Logo Design Contest
« on: April 19, 2007, 12:21:42 PM »
The Wild Survive Logo Design Contest


The Goal of this contest is coax forum members to design a distinctive Logo to be used for the Wild Survive Website and Forum. This Logo can also be used to customize a wide variety of merchandise that could be sold to forum members for a huge profit. A carefully thought-out, well-designed Logo also projects an important image and is valuable form of advertising for the Website. So, let your graphic talents and keen imagination run wild in the wilderness of creativity, and come up with Logo that just SCREAMS.....WILD SURVIVE!!.

The Logo must be in full color and incorporate the following components:
- Text: The words "WILD SURVIVE". (.COM ?) are the focus of the Logo.

- Graphics: Your Logo should depict both "Wild" and "Survive" in the graphic theme.

- Use some of that nasty camouflage pattern currently used as a background for the "WILD SURVIVE" title banner at the top of the page. It should be incorporated, however sparsely you feel necessary, and placed as discretely as possible somewhere in the logo.

- Your Logo should be a versatile and viable design capable of being formatted in any dimension and shape, and it must be applicable to any type of material......Tee-shirts, bumper stickers, window decals, baseball hats, wool crew hats, fleece, paper print, electronic print, canoe paddles etc.

All contest submission(s) should include:
- Your original design of the new Logo in pencil, pen, paint, photo, CGI, or a composite of media. (Posted photos will suffice)
- A description of EXACTLY what is seen in your Logo, and what inspired you to create this design.

Please do not use in your Logo any copywriten material taken from any source.... print, electronic or otherwise. In short, "You'd be wise not to plagiarize". Your submission should represent YOUR work.

Contest entries will be judged by a panel of highly trained, experienced judges who's unbiased conduct is beyond reproach and any form of bribery is shunned....... somewhat. Judging criteria will include: a) Is it good? b) "How good?" The winning entry will be "Damn Good".

PLEASE NOTE: The entry that wins this contest will not necessarily be chosen as our logo. The lucky and talented member who produced the winning entry will, however, receive...... something...... "postage due" if that person doesn't mind? We're a bit broke.

The contest ends promptly and no submissions or alterations will be accepted after, 11:59:59pm EST on May 31, 2007, or as long as it takes to get a really good entry. Please post your submissions on this thread. The winner will be announced when we feel like it.

And, the contest begins.......

Camo patterns used by the military are unique to a country, do we know if the camo used here came from anyone in particular?
8 drops of clorox bleach per gallon of water, and a few drops of de-chlorination (available at pet stores - fish tanks) and you have perfectly safe drinking water. Strain out large particles before processing the water. If you don't have de-chlorination tablets/drops, let the bleached water sit for 24 hours, and, it also settles particles giving you clean looking water!

Looks like the urban camo that came from the woodland US pattern.

I haven't the time to sit and work on anything but to keep the creative juices flowing... How about Having a bootprint in the mud, where the tread spells SURVIVE and the squished out mud spells WILD... then reflected in the puddling of water can be the cheesey camo pattern? Just something to get the ol'thinker smokin'.

I tried to find a boot print that I could use and didn't come up with much.

The idea of having the wild survive name imprinted by the boot print is awesome idea!

I really think we should put in a footprint from an animal under the boot print so that it reflects that we are following the animal or vice versa, the wolf print on top of our boot print. Something to represent that we are talking about nature...

The camo pattern I am not sure how to incorporate that yet.

8 drops of clorox bleach per gallon of water, and a few drops of de-chlorination (available at pet stores - fish tanks) and you have perfectly safe drinking water. Strain out large particles before processing the water. If you don't have de-chlorination tablets/drops, let the bleached water sit for 24 hours, and, it also settles particles giving you clean looking water!

Perhaps we could show a boot lifting from the track (from a perspective behind the boot showing the heel lift) That way you can incorporate the camo on the boot itself. Just do a google image search on bootprint to great some cool ideas.
