I've just done some work to update the blue stylesheet version of this site - you can switch between the site stylesheets at any time by using the red
squares at the bottom of the righthand column (or use the hyperlinks I've just written out). Anyway, that's not my point. While I was doing the work I got to thinking that it's about time I updated the lazylaces logo...
The original, and still in use, logo was created when I took an image from the results of a google image search for "laces" and then had some kind of artistic accident with it in Paint Shop which I still don't fully understand. Anyway it's meant to show some shoes tied in a lazy fashion - I have no idea if it succeeds - I stopped thinking about it about 3 years ago. What I'd like to do is replace it now, and if someone with more artistic ability than me can help, all the better, so in that vein I propose a lazylaces logo competition... here are the details (which I am not
making up as I go along - honest):
The creator of the best entry will receive a token to the value of $30 for Amazon.com (or the nearest GBP equivalent for Amazon.co.uk). I'm afraid my budget won't stretch any further. In addition if I love the entry enough it will become the new logo for the site. All other reasonable, and probably all awful, entries will be featured on the site with a credit.
The logo should either be, or be able to fit within, a banner 630 x 80.
In GIF or JPG format, with as small a file size as possible.
It would be nice, but not essential, if the words "lazy" and "laces" were somehow represented.
The Closing Date is 28th Dec 2005 at 09:00GMT.
Artwork may be altered by me for use on this site.
All submitted artwork may be distributed and used by lazylaces.com free of charge.
Graeme's decision is final.
Ok. That's it I think. Hopefully someone comes up with something cool, otherwise the new year will see me having a painful session with Paint Shop. I'm sure I'll do an update before the closing date so look out for that [idea from a comment by Oxyacetylene
Sorry, but comments are now closed for "Lazylaces Logo Competition".
