I don’t know why I am such a sucker for design competitions, usually I’m completely against them, as are a lot of other web designers. However, lately there have been a couple logo design competitions running that I felt I had to enter. Why? Besides the fact that I enjoy designing things, I don’t usually get a chance to design many logos, usually it’s websites, so I thought I would give it a go. Yes I’m a geek.
Muti Logo Design Competition
Muti is a social bookmarking site inspired by Reddit and Digg but dedicated to content of interest to Africans or those interested in Africa.
Muti’s founder, Neville Newey has asked the public for a new logo design for his site. There have been numerous great submissions, and it is now up to you to vote for the one you like. Voting closes this Sunday at midnight. Visit Muti, register as a user (Very painless! Only a username and a password is required), cast your vote on the home page, and then have a look around the site.
Below is my logo design contribution.
SA Blog Awards Logo Design Competition
This year’s revamped blog awards site has some great new widget functionality. Unfortunately, it’s design has taken a bit of flack though, and numerous bloggers/blog readers have complained about it. Personally, I don’t think it is that bad, in fact my first impression was I quite liked it, except for the powerpoint-looking logo text.
Quirk quickly responded to the comments by challenging the SA blogosphere to come up with a better logo design. Again, numerous logos have been entered, including an attempt by me.
I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on the prize for this competition, an Apple TV. This competition is not open to voting from the public, a panel of judges have been appointed. Do have your say though on which logo you like, either on my site or on Quirk’s.
