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

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?

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

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.

I know, it's a heck of a challenge! Cafepress is so strict. But I'm super confident in everyone.

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.

LOL. Yes? Is that not good enough? 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.

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

You are correct!!!!!this is not good enogh! I see your plan!!!You are not so smart.I am going to SLAVEover my computer for hours in photoshop, putting my life on hold, and pouring out my life and SOUL to make perfect entryin a contest (which has 1/100 chance to win!!) and the prize is for YOU to take my hard earned work & use it for ur own advantage for FREE??All I get is a thank U& the feeling of accomplishment???what disrespect!!This is more like stealing!!slavery! 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. Wow, I cannot believe this.............
