LOGOLYMPIAD - Event 5 - Alternate Logo

Recommended Posts

You have to create an alternate logo for one of the current active teams of La Liga (Liga Nacional de Fútbol Profesional).

  • Use existing colors only.
  • Include the team name and current primary logo in your submission as a reference. The primary logo should not take more than 150 px by 150 px on the template, as it is not the focus of the work here.

DEADLINE: Monday, October 8th, 11:59 AM Eastern Time

Reminder

Failure to follow the guidelines could result in your entry being inadvertently (or intentionally) excluded from judging.

Entries must be emailed to logolympiad (@) gmail (dot) com prior to the set deadline. Subject line should be the event number (Ex: Event 1). Once you submit your entry, it is considered final.

Entries must be submitted as .jpg, .gif or .png formats. The file name format of the submission is: event#_yourusername.extension (Ex: event1_pollux.png). The file must be attached to your email.

All final entries must be 800x600 pixels with at least 70 pixels of white space at the bottom of the image. This means that your presentation has to fit in a 800x530 pixels window (800 pixels wide by 530 pixels high). I will NOT re-size entries that are not properly done, so make sure it's right.

The background of the entries should be solid white, unless otherwise specified. You must not use gradients, shadows, patterns, lines, etc. on your background.

Do not include your name or any other personal identifiers on your submission. Also, do not watermark your work. I will add a watermark to each entry before they get posted for judging. I will also provide each entry with a number. You are expected to keep the identity of your entry anonymous until the end of the event. If you think you know the identity of another designer, keep it to yourself. Anyone who exposes the identity of themselves or anyone else will be DQ'd.

I will NOT contact you if your entry is wrong, therefore make sure that you comply to these guidelines before submitting your entry.

So you want us to basically take the current logo and add a creative word mark to accompany it?

You can do so if you want, but the point of an Alternate Logo is to create a logo that completes the one the team is currently using.

I am aware alternate logos are somewhat rare in soccer, but I specifically chose this to get you out of your comfort zone.

What list are you using for current active teams? The Mothership listing is not accurate for the current (2012-2013) season, as it does not account for 2012 promotion/relegation. (It also lists 21 teams when there are only 20 active.) Should we pick from that list anyway, or from the official La Liga site? (http://www.lfp.es/Es...casEquipos.aspx)

(Current teams also listed on the Wikipedia entry at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012%E2%80%9313_La_Liga)

Good catch. The current active teams should be for the 2012-2013 season, which means one of the following teams:

  • Athletic Bilbao
  • Atlético Madrid
  • Barcelona
  • Betis
  • Celta Vigo
  • Deportivo La Coruña
  • Espanyol
  • Getafe
  • Granada
  • Levante
  • Malaga
  • Mallorca
  • Osasuna
  • Rayo Vallecano
  • Real Madrid
  • Real Sociedad
  • Sevilla
  • Valencia
  • Valladolid
  • Zaragoza

  • Include the team name and current primary logo in your submission as a reference.

So you want the 150x150 primary and to type out the team name?

Yes, because some of the primaries do not show which team it is.
