What do I need to provide?
Your new Web Designer Forum (WDF) logo in .EPS, .AI, or .PSD file format. The logo must contain a graphic element - not just text! You must have created the logo entirely by yourself. The logo should follow a community/web design theme, and should be styled to suit the forum - so should look good on a dark grey background.
The colours and hex codes we use on the site are attached. They're there as a starting point - you don't have to use them.
When is the deadline?
The deadline for entries is 31st January, 2018. The winner will be announced in a thread in the Design Competitions section of the forum. Who can enter? Anyone who is a member of the WDF, except those employed by our sponsors.
How do I submit my entry?
Please send all your entries to myself (Jo 90) via private message.
Who decides the winner?
A committee of forum admins, moderators and 20i representatives will decide the winner and the runners up. Prizes will be given be in the form digital vouchers via email/PM shortly following the announcement of the winners.
The 'small print'
When you submit a logo you are also agreeing that, should it win, WDF will own all rights to the logo. You will be credited for your work via a thread on the forum. WDF has the right to modify or use the logo anywhere we see appropriate, even before applying the logo to the forum.
Any questions? Questions should be posted publicly in this thread, or contact me in a private message.
Thanks for reading, and good luck to all...
For those eagle-eyed amongst you, there has been some slight tweaks to the original prize winning logo entry. Firstly we felt the hands looked like a crosshair, so they have been given a more obvious curve and put at a different angle + There's also been a more solid font change & small gradients added to the inner part of the main logo image.
We're excited to see the new logo in place (Finally) & that we now have an official identity
