OLP Library Logo Contest
The OLP Library is asking for submissions for a logo! The winning logo will be used throughout the library and on its promotional materials. Your design could be a very important part of the OLP Library’s image! All current OLP students are welcome to submit up to 3 entries.
How to Enter:
- All entries must be submitted in digital format to firstname.lastname@example.org along with an attached entry form (see form on the right-hand column of this page).
- Files must be a PDF or JPG file.
- Name your file: LastnameFirstnameGraduationYear (for example: DoeJane2017.jpg). If submitting more than one entry, add a number 1-3 to the end of your filename (for example: DoeJane20171.jpg)
1. Your design must incorporate the words OLP Library.
2. Judging will be based on originality, design quality and visual impact.
3. Flexibility is a key requirement! Your logo must have the ability to:
-> be resized easily
-> be readable in black & white as well as color settings
-> vary the size from small to large
4. Though the art is an important part of the logo, judging is based on the idea/concept conveyed.
5. Use of copyrighted work (clipart, cartoons, etc.) will automatically disqualify the entry.
6. Each individual student can submit up to 3 entries.
7. The deadline for entries is October 1st, 2015.
The panel of judges will consist of Ms. DeVore (Librarian), Ms. Alfaro (Library Assistant) and selected faculty (TBD). The OLP Library reserves the right to not select a winner if in its sole discretion no suitable entries were received.
The winner will see her logo proudly displayed as a representation of the OLP Library. Any flyers, handouts, web pages, bookmarks, signage that promotes the OLP library's programs, resources and services will have the logo displayed. Aside from this great honor, the winner will also be awarded an In & Out giftcard and an AMC giftcard.
Helpful Tips- What Makes a Good Logo?
Know your audience! In this case, the audience is other OLP students. Create a logo that will appeal to them.
When creating a design, think about what the library means to you and your fellow pilots. Try to include this in your logo.
Your logo can have some elaborate features but it should be simple enough to make a quick statement.
Keep in mind that the logo will be used on print and online materials.
- While common symbols may be used (i.e. books), don’t be afraid to think outside the box!
