Contest #1 - Guild Logo/Buttons + Featured On Award

Posted 17 October 2001 - 08:26 PM

Alrighty, for the next 4 weeks, I will be accepting submissions for to the first official dream.in.code contest.
The dream.in.code developers guild needs buttons and a logo. Basically we need small buttons for members to place on their sites, portfolios/resumes, and other things like that. We also need a good logo to put on the certificates, this is what I'll do, the first 2 weeks will be for the logo, then after that another 2 weeks for the buttons and such.

No real requirements, try to use the orange and grey as it needs to "brand" the site and make sure dream.in.code is spelled with the dots, you can use either dream.in.code or </dream.in.code> The guild is called:  "dream.in.code developers guild" Try to use the entire thing in your logo and buttons

The person who submits the winning logo will get one year free in the guild, and the person(s) who submit the best buttons will recieve 1 free year in the guild. Let's see what you've got! The contest will officially begin This friday, so start making buttons and either email them to me or post them here (preferably post them here)

Ya'll are developers, think of what you would want to put on your site, don't make it more than about 10KB.

Dimensions, again, use your discretion... this is what makes this kinda challenging... what do you want to see on your site? As a member of the guild would you want the choice of more than 1 button, etc. etc.

I'm leaving it very open ended, I can give away a few free memberships so if there are several buttons I like, then that's what I'll use :)

Bottom line, it's up to you
Make the logo big so I can use it in print (meaning 200dpi) and a few inches by a few inches

Thanks Jered, I had almost forgot.  I'm gonna get cracking on this.  Everyone should as well. Remember, if you get stuck, post up in the design lounge and even though it's a contest, we should all help each other!  Shibby,

Yuppers, I'll feature this in the newsletter when I send it out this week, hmmmm maybe tonight? Maybe tomorrow? I'm already a day late, why not wait some more right... heh

I'll extend the contest too... when I find something I like I'll start giving free memberships... don't worry just cause I haven't said anything and you have submitted something... doesn't mean you lost or something...

Email me or post your submissions here
