Logo Contest Entry – Emily Lloyd

Emily creates the witty and insightful Shelf Check strip if you don’t read it regularly you should! Emily writes

No illustrations, because I imagine the icons and shapes transliteracies take (touchscreen, digital video, book, etc) will change, and quickly, but the basic concept, rendered in text, will remain.

Logo Contest Entry – Ruth

Ruth, who tweets at UtopianLibrary, created these logos Ruth writes

i worked with “transliteracy” as defined here on L&T, the macbook dictionary definition of “logo,” and the following guidelines to come up with this logo. the guidelines are from my own experience. a few are lessons i learned from my father when i entered a safety poster contest in 5th grade. those lessons stuck.

- a logo should speak its message without a whole lot of detail or explanation
– a logo should withstand time, at least until someone decides the image needs an overhaul
– logo art should be camera ready and easily/cleanly reproducible in various formats and sizes (print, digital, t-shirt, button, sidewalk chalk, skywriting)
– a logo’s color should be user’s choice and flexible

and for this specific logo…

-libraries have the tools and potential to reach globally and touch locally
-there are no symbols for the usable platforms, tools, or media that haven’t been discovered yet

and that’s pretty much it.

Logo Contest Entry – Justin Hoenke

Justin writes

I just saw your contest and thought “you know what, I love graphic design and the killer job most people do with it. But I can’t do that. All I can create are little cartoons.”

So my thinking behind this was just to be Justin and try something that I can do.
