Listen up all you graphic designers and artists out there!
We’re working on a logo for UNICON XV to take with us (on business cards, and for our website and t-shirts etc) to Denmark this year, and we decided to run a little competition to see who could come up with the best logo.
I had a pretty good design going, until my computer decided to fry itself so i’m back to square one.
I’ll leave it open to your interpretation, but it must follow these guidelines:
Feature a unicycle somewhere (duh)
Feature a kiwi icon, so a map of nz or a kiwi on a unicycle or a fern etc
Must feature the words UNICON XV, Wellington 2010, New Zealand
You’ve got until the 18th of May to come up with something amazing, so get cracking.
The winner gets free entry to UNICON XV, a free t shirt and the knowledge that your logo is going to be seen worldwide and used in a world championship event.
You can e-mail your tries to me, or PM me a .jpg.
Please try make your entries as high resolution as possible
Sorry to hear about that. When you buy your new hardware, don’t forget to add an external backup drive. They’re super cheap now, and your data’s worth it!
I don’t think I’ll be able to get a design together for you, but if you want to include the old IUF logos (there are two versions) I can supply high-res versions of those, which I did design.
Recommendation for T-shirts and other promotional materials: Don’t forget to use the word “unicycle,” in its entirety, somewhere. It needn’t be in the logo but this mistake is made surprisingly often when promoting unicycling events. Unicon, NAUCC, Nats, etc. don’t mean much to people outside the sport!
Im keen to meet this challenge. I began a design last night but I have afew questions.
Firstly, can we send you more then one design? also, can we send afew versions of those designs that you would then have the opportunity to choose from?
Oop, sorry, forgot to mention, the pictures I swiped are from Petite Pete’s website and I just used them for illustrative purposes only.
If you guys like the idea then they can be changed to something else.
Also, don’t forget the NZ national symbol is The Silver Fern, and our national Icon is the Kiwi (the bird, not the fruit). You can incorporate those into the logo also. It doesn’t all have to be the country.
The tourism NZ sites are a good place to start:
Don’t make it too complicated/detailed, as it needs to be printed on T-shirts, on the website, and also on medals/trophies etc.
Also have a look at Unicon logos from previous Unicons for ideas:
