Sweetsoles Logo Contest
Are you good with pencil, pen, brush, mouse or fingerpaint? Are you creative? Are you a fan of this blog? This is your opportunity to become famous!
What do you need to do?
Design a logo for Sweetsoles. Now you don’t need to be a professional designer for a chance to win. I’m looking for concepts more than fully developed logo designs. If you have a good idea, put it on paper and send it to me.
The current logo is really just the name inside a diamond shape without a thought behind its design. But the blog deserves a more iconic logo. Something instantly recognizable. It should be able to stand on its own just as well as next to (or above, below) the blog name. Keep it simple. It should work as a one-color logo too. And last but not least, it should be legible at small sizes (think Tumblr avatars at 24×24 pixels).
Don’t copy existing logos. A shoe box is already done. Laces are already done. A silhouette of a single brand or model is too limiting. It may not contain brand elements of any existing (shoe) brand. Think of what’s relevant to the blog. When people see the logo without the name, it should be clear to them this blog is about sneakers.
What’s in it for you?
Fame and honour. Your name and/or blogname with a link to your site shall be known to all my followers (I have a lot, and I mean A LOT) through a shout-out post that I will publish once the winner is picked. Furthermore, the winner will receive the highly desired Nike Air Max 1 ‘Parra x Patta’ shoes - yes, that’s right; the Nike AM1 Parra’s, just for you! You have seen them before, but this time they will be printed on a sticker sheet (haha got you there!) so you can spread your love for the shoe throughout your city or bedroom. The sticker sheet will also include stickers with your winning logo, yay!
How to submit
Create an image file of your design (jpg, png, gif, bmp, tiff) and send it to me:
- email the image or link to firstname.lastname@example.org
- submit the image via /submit
- send me a link to the image via /ask or fanmail
Make sure I have a way to contact you back (no anonymous asks) in case you are chosen the winner.
You are allowed to submit multiple entries.
Things to note
Submissions will not be published. There is no voting. There is no judge. Winner will be picked by me only, but it’s not guaranteed a winner will be picked. If no submissions are good enough in my opinion, the old logo stays.
The winner agrees to transfer all intellectual rights of the design to me at no cost. I have the freedom to alter the winning design in any way. The winner may object to having his/her name or link published. Submissions that are not chosen as winner will be deleted. Personal information (emailaddresses, names) will not be sold or used for any other purpose than contacting the winner.
By submitting an entry for this contest you automatically agree with above rules and conditions. If you don’t agree, don’t submit anything.

Waiting for more entries. Any idea, any rough sketch is fine. C’mon people, your logo could be on Tumblr’s best sneaker blog to be admired by thousands of eyeballs!
Only one more week left!
Please remember: no shoe silhouettes, no laces, no shoeboxes, nothing literally related to ‘sweet’.
I like modern and urban/street fonts, not script/calligraphic style fonts. But don’t focus too much on the letters, unless they’re part of your logo idea. I like the logo to be simple, clean, clear, clever. Legible at small sizes so it’s recognizable in Tumblr avatars.
If you want direct feedback on your design, make sure to submit it by email and I will give you my thoughts and tips so you can alter it before deadline.
No, you can not win a pair of shoes. But still, I think you should give it a try. Don’t wait till the last moment, fill my inbox right now
