With the launch of the new NHLNumbers blog and the continued development of the site's resources and functions, we figured it's time to update the graphics around here. Specifically, we're looking for a new logo for the site.
Now, we could have gone to some pro graphic designer and spent thousands of dollars only to be slightly disappointed by the outcome, but instead we're opening up the project to the Nation readers instead.
Here's what we need
- A logo that can be used on the site, on facebook and as an avatar on twitter. That means it needs to be more square than rectangular in shape.
- Something that works with the existing format and color scheme of NHLnumbers.com.
- A logo that doesn't violate current copyrights or trademarks. So no integrating or "borrowing" the NHL's official logo, for instance.
For Alberta residents, we can offer gift certificates to the Pint in Edmonton, or Hudson's Taphouse in Edmonton and Calgary. For folks outside of Alberta, we can offer a modest cash prize of $100.
Of course, the primary prize will be the affection of the writers and contributors at NHLNumbers as well as the exposure of having your work seen by over 1 million unique visitors every year.
Send your entries to either Kent (Kent.firstname.lastname@example.org) or Derek (email@example.com). The contest will be open until Sunday, May 27th at which point we'll post our favorites and solicit reader opinions. We'll decide the winner based on our own preferences as well as overall impressions.
Thanks and good luck everyone. We're looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
