55DSL emailed me about this a while back and I have been getting some emails from other readers about it as well. I thought I would post it since it might be a nice little way for someone talented out there to pocket a little cash for the holidays and get your work in front of some pretty savvy people:
With the imminence of 55DSL’s 15th anniversary in 2009, 55DSL is ready to celebrate the unique mix of attitude and aesthetics it has made all its own. To do so, 55DSL has turned to the input of design company Cut&Paste’s own culturally diverse, design-savvy, and urban-centric global audience through the 55DSL Logo Remix contest.
THE CHALLENGE: to revamp the iconic 55DSL Shield logo, spinning it into a visual remix that reflects 55DSL’s culture and spirit.
Contestant’s designs submitted to logoremix.55DSL.com will be evaluated by a distinguished panel of 8 international judges, ranging from acclaimed graffiti artist Emit to 55DSL’s very own creative director Andrea Ross, who will select the top 5 submissions. The Grand Prize winner will receive a receive 1,055 Euros award and see his/her logo design produced by 55DSL on a T-shirt for the 2010 Spring/Summer collection.
There will also be a People’s Choice Price for the contestant whose design receives the most votes via the online gallery who will win a special 55DSL goodie bag filled with items from 55DSL’s limited edition collections.
All entries must be submitted no later than 11:59pm PST on December 5, 2008 and online voting will remain open through December 12, 2008.
