Music mogul Jermaine Dupri launches logo design contest via social media
- 15 Comment
Want to add “I designed the Global14 social logo” to your creative portfolio? Well, now you can.
Jermaine Dupri (JD) (@LTLline) and I launched the search for the next great social logo designer through a contest hosted on Global14. Announced tonight through JD’s Twitter feed, we are ready for entries.
What are the logo criteria? It should be a social media-ready logo to be used for all smart phone apps and other online collateral (keep social media avatar and app logo sizes in mind). Encompassing the Global14 brand, this logo will be THE visual representation of the online community started by JD.
Submissions are being accepted now through Friday, November 26 at 5:00 PM ET in the “Global14 Social App Logo Design Contest” group. JD’s favorite entries will be shared via social media and Global14 allowing his social community a chance to share their voice.
The winner will be announced on Tuesday, November 30 at 9 AM ET.
What do you get if you win? Full attribution of the artwork and a post about you and your skills on Global14.com and a chance to chat with JD via Skype or FaceTime (if you’re a Mac user). Plus we’ll let all of our online friends know about the great work you do.
Anyone can submit designs or multiple designs. All designs must be ORIGINAL IDEAS.
Questions? Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPDATE: This contest is for Global14 members. The logo is not for JD’s record label, but to promote the growing (and talented) members of the community. The contest serves as a way to boost your visibility not only in the community, but to create a visual identity for the Global14 experience.
Global14 began as a place where JD could share his own news and offer a look into his life through social media. It has evolved into a fan-based community and forum where members can share their thoughts, ideas and creativity on many topics ranging from music to fashion to life lessons.
