Participation YC logo and competition  

5 members have voted

  1. 1. Do you want to participate?



Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

At the moment the Young Composers website does not have a logo, nor a favicon. So, Chopin and I came on the idea to hold a logo AND a favicon design for the website. This competition is meant to everybody who is a YC member and you do not have to be a professional designer to join. Be as creative as you want!

All submitted designs will be showed in the first Young Composers Magazine. After the publishing of this, all YC members can vote which one they like the most. Finally, Chopin can adjust minor things if needed.

 

To avoid any ambiguities:

  • Logo: will be placed somewhere between the header. The header would be considered anything above the navigation tabs. So that little bit of area between the tabs and the top of the page.
     
  • Favicon: the icon that is shown to the left of the address bar in any of the browsers.
    For instance: http://www.shopalot.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/example-favicon.jpg

     
  • A square form is preferred, because Chopin can then easily resize both images if the are too big to fit the header and / or the favicon.
  • The name Young Composers needs to be included.
     

Deadline

  • Offical deadline is the 1st of October. Eventual latecomers can be rejected.
     

How to participate

  • Answer the poll with yes. If you do not want to participate, do not answer the poll.
     

Submit your designs

  • After you have finished both designs, make sure that you send a PRIVATE MESSAGE to @chopin and me. This is to avoid any cheating regarding creativity.
  • All posts including images with designs by logos publically posted will be deleted.
  • Your submission needs to contain a brief motivation why you have made the designs as they are.
     

Voting via the magazine

  • All submitted designs will be showed in the first Young Composers Magazine. After the publishing of this, all YC members can vote via a new topic in this forum which one they like the most.
     

Reward

  • Eternal fame. People visiting the forum will see the beautiful logo and icon designed by you.

 

When there are any questions, just ask them here and Chopin or I will answer them.

The best of luck!

 

Kind regards,

Chopin & Maarten Bauer

"When the answer is no, you do not have to answer with no in this poll."
what's the point of the no vote then? :grin:

(P.S. I voted yes, just caught my attention)

It is impossible to make a poll question with just one answer. Otherwise, I would of course only create the answer yes.

Great to hear!

Hi Maarten,

Two questions:

1. Can we just include the initials YC? Or should we spell out the full name "Young Composers"?

2. Do we have to create a separate logo and favicon, or will the same design work for both?

Or maybe make the second answer "Maybe"!

1. @Chopin I think you can include YC as initials. 

2. Logo and favicon can be the same, but remember that the favicon is much smaller so details will be hard to see.

I have finished my logo/favicon. However, if I send it now and then come up with a better one before the deadline, can I change it or submit multiple entries?

Not a problem at all! Chopin and I will look at all designs that are sent before the deadline. We can thus also choose an older version of your design if we like that one more. 

I am very curious!

Wow, this is so cool!!! Just one question...

Should I try to create a logo that fits with the color scheme and design of this forum, or can I create a modern logo or something?

You can create any design you want! It does not have to fit the website theme.

I am glad you are enthousiastic!
