ADVAnet needs a new logo! I'm giving everyone else who might be interested in seeing a new logo for our group a chance to take a stab and submit their own design idea. We just need something we can use here on Meetup, on our own future site, on our other social media presences, and on business cards or other printable media.
There are no real parameters you need to follow, no pre-set color palette or anything. You're free to go hog-wild with your imagination. Of course, good logo design will always be usable in multiple applications, so we would want a good vector design that can scale up and down. And it'd be good if the logo can work equally well in a wide banner format (like at the top of our Meetup page) and a square one (like avatars).
If you use a particular font, I'd prefer it to be one that is available freely, or that you have a license for that would allow us to use it in other applications.
Take a crack at it over the next nine days and see what you come up with. You can email submissions to me in advance at [masked], or just bring them with you on a flash drive or make them accessible online. We'll pick a handful that we like best, and then make them available on our group for everyone to peruse. We'll hold a vote and see which one wins. Right now we don't have a tangible prize or reward for the winner, but I'll see if I can get something out of our sponsors. And obviously you retain the rights and ownership to your own design.
