robbalvey Posted January 5, 2010 Share Posted January 5, 2010 Hey everyone! As we always value our members input with everything we do, we have decided to have a photoshop contest that will allow our members to help design our Club TPR Logo and Membership Card. This contest will be a little bit different from Photoshop Contests in the past so let me first put forth a few rules: 1. While we will have a poll and everyone can vote, the ultimate winner will be chosen by Robb & Elissa. 2. Just because you may be the winner of this contest it does not mean we will use your logo or membership card style in the final product. In fact, it is possible that we may end up choosing multiple ideas to create one logo and/or card. 3. One of goals of this contest, in addition to input with the logo, is to find graphic artists that exist on TPR and may be interested in helping with other TPR projects. So think of this as a "test" along with a contest! 4. The final winner, chosen by Robb & Elissa, will receive a free 1 year membership to Club TPR, and of course, a giant bag-o-crap! 5. You may submit multiple versions and revisions of your logo/membership card however your final version *MUST* say "Final Submission" and you may only submit ONE logo and membership card per person. While you can post your logo and membership card as two images, the logo you design must be displayed on the membership card, and that version will be your "final submission." The membership card and logo MUST be uploaded as a 300 DPI layered PSD image in .zip file along with your .jpg submissions for display in the forum. (Or a similar type of high resolution layered file) 6. Robb & Elissa will be giving critical feedback on submissions prior to the contest closing date, and you can either decide to or not to revise your image based on their feedback. If you are not open to constructive criticism on your artwork, we suggest not participating in this contest. 7. The logo and membership card must follow some guidelines which are as follows: - The membership card MUST look clear when printed out as a 3.370 × 2.125 inch image (the size of your typical credit card). I would suggest printing it out at home first before posting it. Your image should be created at a MUCH higher resolution, but it should look good printed out at this size. - The membership card must display: Club TPR Logo, Member Name, Member Screen Name, Member Number (5 digits - 00000), Join Date, Expiry Date, Member Type "Single" "Family", the website URL www.themeparkreview.com. - The logo should look good displayed as big as 1000x500 and as small as 150x75 pixels - The membership card and logo MUST be uploaded as a 300 DPI layered PSD image in .zip file along with your .jpg submissions for display in the forum. - Any fonts used must be free of any licensing fees - You must use gadzoox.tff (attached below) for the TPR Logo and the colors must match the same style of the site. - The membership card and logo must look "professional" and "fun". It cannot be something that looks thrown together in 5 minutes in MS Paint (so basically NOT like the example below!) - You may use the example below as an "idea" or come up with something completely on your own. The example is purely that, an "example." DEADLINE FOR CONTEST SUBMISSIONS IS MONDAY JANUARY 18th, 2010! Good luck to everyone and we look forward to seeing your images! Thank you! --Robb Ps. HEREis an update to what is happening with Club TPR and more information about what we are proposing. Here is an example of the actual size of the membership card. If you print this image out, and then place a normal sized credit card over it, it should be exactly the same size. Your image should be created at a MUCH higher resolution, but it should look good printed out at this size. 3.370 × 2.125 inch Here is a larger version of a credit card template. NOTE! THIS ONE IS ONLY FOR REFERENCE! The membership card and logo MUST be uploaded as a 300 DPI layered PSD image in .zip file along with your .jpg submissions for display in the forum. (Or a similar type of high resolution layered file) gadzoox_999.zip TPR Gadzoox Font The logo must look good as a small image for the front page of TPR and it must also fit well on the Membership card. Here is a crappy Club TPR logo. Just to give you some ideas to start off with. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
