LOGOLYMPIAD - Event 8


pollux

Recommended Posts

For the last event, you need to design a new word mark for one of the current or past teams from the Major League Baseball (MLB).

  • Use the colors that are already part of the color scheme; do NOT add more colors (other than white).
  • 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 29th, 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.

Question: Is this wordmark intended to be one that you would place on a jersey, or a wordmark intended for promotion or other uses? For example, the Pirates use this on their jerseys:

but have used this elsewhere:

Which are we supposed to create?

Two questions:

1. Do we have to create both City/State and Team Name? (For NBA Brooklyn Nets or just Nets)

2. Do we have to create a totally 100% new wordmark or can we retouch their current wordmark to make it "perfect" or use the letter on the baseball caps only and create rest of the name since baseball teams rarely go through a rebrand.

1. Only one word mark, but you get to choose if it's city/state or team name.

2. You can use the letter on the baseball cap and create the rest of the word mark, but don't retouch the existing word mark. Create something new.

I have already received several entries, but one of them is missing the current primary logo in its submission. While I have written that it should be included, I will not make it mandatory, therefore the entry I have received without the primary logo is VALID.

Any other participant can decide whether to include or not the current primary logo.

Can we put two wordmarks (with different colors or one with city name and another with the team name) ?

And sorry if my English not good...

You only need to put one wordmark, and you get to choose if you want to do the city or the team name.

Can it be a modification of a wordmark that the team uses for promotional materials but not for uniforms, or does it have to be entirely from scratch?

Create something new, as stated previously. Don't simply modify an existing mark, whether from promotional materials or uniforms.

Once again, I received an entry containing 2 word marks. Since I have already mentioned it twice in the thread, the submission should contain only one word mark of your choice (city or team name, not both). That participant may resubmit if he wishes, but will be disqualified if he doesn't resubmit.

Create this wordmark on a baseball jersey template or the wordmark only. Also can you have a home and away wordmark or just one wordmark altogether.

Only the word mark, not on a baseball jersey template.

As stated three times already, only one word mark, so you choose between home or away, but not both.
