Nebraska Beer Logo contest

I think that since we have been doing this blog for a year, and we have some dedicated readers, it is about time we take this thing to another level. I think it is time for a logo. I don't want just any logo, I want a logo that all of us would love to see on stickers, T-shirts, hats, blog headline, etc. I want something cool and representative of what this blog means to you, the brewers, and Nebraska.

Since I have very little logo talent I put the call out to the readers. Please submit me your logos for our site. As of right now we have no income so I have no way to pay you anything but if your logo wins and we start selling shirts and things I imagine we can work something out. I think we can take this blog to another level if we have some income stream and I think logo wear is a good start and a good advertising opportunity.

So give me your thoughts and your logos. Let's blow this thing up. If you would like to contribute to this blog at anytime please contact me as well and I will set you up. A blog is only successful if there is content and while this has been a great week sometimes it can be pretty slow based on my time to dedicate to it. Thanks readers!!

I would say if you want a logo for free and don't have income, be willing to barter.

Thanks

Not sure what you are getting at here. I personally think this is SPAM but willing to hear it out. I have some people working on designs now that appreciate great beer and that was all I was trying to do.

Anonymous' links aren't spam. Your logo request is technically a request for SPEC work.

It's a common misconception, but something that the professional design community is working hard to eliminate.

No, Anonymous links aren't always spam, but they can be.

I hear what you are saying and I am bartering so I don't see the problem.

I have been contacted by professional designers willing to help so it must not be that large of a concern.

I am not trying to be unsavory here, just trying to improve this place for everyone by getting everyone involved.

I understand people have to make a living but if I don't get a logo I am not going to pay for one so really no one is missing out on anything. I will gladly pimp whomever comes up with one if they want they will get merchandise if/when we make some. Seems like a good deal to me.

Sorry for stepping on toes.
