Puget Computers Logo Contest
Ends October 1, 2004


Puget Custom Computers has decided to hold a Logo Design Contest. We need an extreme makeover, and we're turning to you! This is literally a no-holds-barred contest, allowing participants to showcase their creative and designer talents. Design a logo, create a font, and submit it before October 1, 2004, for a chance to win a 64-bit Mini computer system, valued near $1500.00.

Submission Package:

We're looking for a design that's flexible enough to be used in all shapes and sizes. To represent this, we're looking for 3 things in each submission:

1) One 64 x 64 image, featuring your newly designed Logo for Puget Custom Computers
2) One TEXT ONLY image, sampling your new design for our name, using "Puget", "Puget Computers" or "Puget Custom Computers".
3) One 550 x 100 banner, combining both the Logo, and the Text, showcasing how the two work together for a truly synergetic banner.





All images to be formatted in .jpg, .gif, or .png. No animations please.

In order to claim the prize, we will ask for the original, unflattened image files, so that we may have them for any future alterations of our new logo. At the same time, we'll ask for the source of any images used in the creation of our logo, to which the designer must have intellectual ownership. (No copyrighted material!). This means, keep those original files!

Submit all entries via email to logocontest@pugetsystems.com . You should receive an entry confirmation within 24 hours.
