Simplified Standards logo contest

14th June 2005

Coming very soon to your browser wil be Simplified Standards, a collaborative site from several well-known bloggers eager to bring some clarity and simplicity to the minefield of web standards and accessibility. I won’t say any more about the aims and objectives right now, but I can confirm that we need a logo. If you’re interested in submitting a design, read on.

Rather than design a logo “in-house”, I thought it’d be interesting to invite submissions from you lot. The winning design will be used on the site and all associated publicity, and a permanent credit will appear in the footer of the website. The winner will also receive a CollyLogic goody-bag which will include some cool stuff.


I’m not setting any colour, font, or look and feel specifics, but the logo must respect the following:

  1. Must echo the project’s name - Simplified Standards
  2. Must be delivered as a 300dpi print-quality file and also a 250px width gif
  3. Ideally, the format will be landscape, so 250px width by up to 120px height
  4. Must be legible - simplicity is the buzzword here
The other details

Colly’s decision is final, so basically I’ll choose the one I like the best. The best three will be featured on this site too. The closing date is 25th June, so get your skates on. Good luck, and thanks.

Please email all entries to simon(dot)collison(at)agenzia(dot)co(dot)uk including your full contact details and a brief explanation of your thinking behind your design.
