Logo competition

Hi people, I know that a bunch of you guys are pretty talented when it comes to artwork/creativity, so I figured I’d share this challenge with you guys.

The University of Hawaii medical school is starting up an online work system similar to Blackboard (another online work system, an example of which is http://learn.usc.edu, and a temp system is that which is based off of Tufts University’s model–> http://jbows.jabsom.hawaii.edu). However, we do not have a logo for it, and it would be nice to have something similar to the elephant used in the Tufts model.

The UH mascot is the rainbow warrior, so something that fits that would be kinda cool.

There IS a prize for this, but it’s a $25 gift certificate to the medical bookstore :tup: . Some of you may be turned off by that, but I figure I’ll get a few people who would like to test their artistic mettle with this little project. Besides, I’ll make sure the winner gets his/her props in, and you can freely go around saying, “I designed the logo to the University of Hawaii School of Medicine’s online work station.” :party:

Here are the posted guidelines:

  1. The design competition requires the submission of two logo sizes, large and small. The designs submitted must conform to the following specifications:

    For the large icon: 
    a.  Image Size: 350 x 90 (W x H) in pixels 
    b.  File Size: not to exceed 10 KB 
    c.  File Format:  GIF 
    For the small icon: 
    a.  Image Size: 66 x 50 (W x H) in pixels 
    b.  File Size: not to exceed 5 KB 
    c.  File Format:  GIF 
  2. The design must be received in electronic form no later than 12:00 noon August 31, 2005

For details regarding the color scheme and tentative layout for the intranet pages, please go to http://www2.hawaii.edu/~yijia/jbows/logo_design.htm. Although the logo does not have to be the same color as the rest of the graphics/text on the Intranet, it may be useful to think about how well your design will fit in with the overall look and feel of J-BOWS.

Entries will be judged on artistic merit, appropriateness for representing J-BOWS, and adherence to the required design specifications and must be received by the deadline noted above in order to be considered for this competition.

Good luck and we look forward to seeing just how creative medical school students can be!
