Awesome!!!

I may enter this one! But omg...I'm sooo not creative...a whole individual logo just for AHS...using no Ayu symbols...

I expect to see a few ideas reoccur among the entries lol

I can't wait for all the entries though. Good luck everyone :D

This sounds fun~~~!!!! But it will be sooooo hard without using anything related to Ayu (^_^);;;

I have a question, though: must the logo be made with Photoshop and stuff, or can it be hand drawn, for example?

Lanz16 24th April 2010 12:01 PM

This sounds fun but hard since it challenges us not to use Ayu related things especially the "A". :)

Cherry Dynamite 24th April 2010 02:42 PM

Oh this will be hard but I'll try anyway xD

stardusties 24th April 2010 03:57 PM

I know using pictures of Ayu and her singers/dancers/dogs would be plagiaristic,

however, if we could draw Ayu without using any picture/video not shot by us as reference, that is accepted, correct?

You can make it any way you want. :) You could take photos of stuff and collage them, draw, paint...it doesn't need to be done with Photoshop. :) I'd be very excited to see entries that don't use traditional Photoshop. :yes

Hm, I'm not too sure on that. It'd really be up to Cafepress. I don't think it'd be a problem, but you/we'd really have to check with their rules. I'm not sure how picky they are. :shrug

LOL. Yes? Is that not good enough? :laugh I mean, people are going to be owning stuff with your logo on it, and everyone all over the forum's going to know of it. This of it like designing a new layout. If you won a layout challenge the prize is that we'd use it. :shrug

No, we don't have one. We've had the splash pages, but they're not really logos.

Minerva 24th April 2010 11:00 PM

yes so excited for this!

gallowsCalibrator 24th April 2010 11:27 PM

@sugarbasil: Oh, I see! Thanks! I'm excited to do this~!

AngelSenshi 25th April 2010 12:23 AM

I can't even draw stick people, so I won't be taking part, but I can't wait to see what participants hand in :)

pommy48 25th April 2010 05:49 AM

sugarbasil 25th April 2010 06:18 AM

It is like being a ghost writer!! except even they get paid!!!take my work, and all i get is a thank you? I'm sorry but I cannot take this disrespect!! i hope some poor soul is DESPERATE enough for the tiny bit of attention they will receve from this contest!!You don't eevn offer me a coffee mug with MY logo on it??

I'm sorry but I am very angry!! this is pathetic!! using your members to do free work for a shop that YOU will earn money off of!!It's a shop!! yuo will earn hundrds of dollar!!a layout contest is completely different!! you do not make money off of a layout!!................You cannot even give me this enough respect to pay back my hard work,something that it would cost a professional atlest 300$!!SO use your members.
