    NEW CONTEST (not like the weekly ones)

    Hi Everyone!

    My dealership is desperate for a new logo!

    The contest is to draw a logo to represent:

    EASTSIDE Chevrolet / Corvette

    It should be able to be recreated using just 1 color (so no actual photographs should be used)

    The name Eastside should be incorporated somehow, even if it's simply next to the logo itself.

    It should be able to be resized, small enough to fit on a Business card without losing legibility.


    The current logo is this:




    Please submit ALL entries in THIS THREAD.
    I'm taking entries now! This will end when we find a suitable logo.

    Will there still be the regular weekly contests going on in between this, or will this be in place of them untill this one ends? Just wondering seeing as you said this will go on untill you find a sutible logo.

    The weekly contests will go on as usual. This is a supplemental (or bonus) contest, purely for my own selfish reasons.

    How would this work? Do you want the logo designed in a certain format ...EPS, AI, etc or will a pencil sketch work

    Also not to be a jerk but I have to ask what mygraphix asked. If this is a company would there be anything for the winner?

    For the moment, type of file doesn't matter (JPG, BMP, EPS, etc...) are all allowed.
    If we were to use the design, I would assume that EPS is the most standard for printing, etc...

    It can be B+W or 1 color. We want to keep it inexpensive to reprint.

    I like that last one. Suggestion: Make the bowtie extend past the tip of the circle (in other words bigger). Then make a 2nd bowtie in the 1st bowtie (basically a border).
    Remove the Corvette script, and then you're done.

    Wow, we don't get prizes for the weekly contests! Thats awesome! I'm in.
    I like it better with the vette on it. How about a smaller bowtie- inside the original- going around the vette.

    I was just told by my manager, that we can't write anything other than "Chevrolet" on the bowtie logo itself, otherwise, it's some kind of copyright infringement or something, and it wouldn't be allowed from GM.
