Logo Design Contest

My husband is a Web developer and programmer by trade, and has designed many company sites and logos. I think he is talented and I can't wait to tell him about this neat logo design contest.

Ford Blue Oval Scholars program is sponsored by the Ford Motor Company Fund. It allows Ford Motor Company scholarship winners to share information with each other and learn about internships and job opportunities within the company. Their goal is to make this program as unique as possible and they are starting off with this national logo design contest. Participants 16 years old and up are invited to participate by creating a logo that will be used to represent the scholars program. You don't have to be a professional to enter, so all you amateurs come on down and enter! Your design will become the official logo, and will be used on the Web site, as well as in any promotional materials used by the program. A panel of Ford Motor Company employees and design experts will choose the top ten designs and then Ford Blue Oval Scholars will vote online to determine the grand prize winner. The grand prize winner will receive Adobe Creative Suite 3 Design Premium, which retails for $1700! Second and third place will receive money toward purchasing the design software of their choice, while fourth through tenth place will receive a $50 music download card! Sweet!

So what are you waiting for? Get over there and sign up for this contest! This is your opportunity to showcase your creativity!

What a fantastic, simple and very effective idea. The clean design helps to add a creative appeal to the university and the educational aspect. I can see the comparison with the Wilson’s logo especially when the logo is on its own. However, I think with the campaign using ‘us’ prevents that comparison from sticking.business logo design
