Our target audience for this logo is for middle and high school teenagers in grades 8-12 (ages 13-18).

Color Preferences

RGB colors:

Orange 151 (253/160/0)

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

We're looking to update our existing logo. Our current logo is featured on www.flickr.com, and is available under YES! Safe Choices for Kids. Our YES! program runs a middle and high school peer leadership group. YES! educates a group of 500 middle and high school students, who in turn go out into their community and talk to elementary students about the importance of making good choices and avoiding drugs and alcohol. This group has previously been known as ADSIP (Alcohol and Drug Student Information Program). However, we have a new name so that it can be associated better with YES! Safe Choices for Kids. The new name for the program is YES! LEADS. We'd like our YES! Safe Choices for Kids logo to now incorporate our YES! LEADS program.

WE WANT OUR NEW LOGO FOR THE YES! LEADERS PROGRAM TO BE WORKED INTO OUR EXISTING LOGO WHICH CAN BE FOUND AT WWW.FLICKR.COM!!!!!!

Our existing logo for our agency can be found here on flickr.com (http://www.flickr.com/photos/41239456@N06/). We want to include our new YES! LEADS program within this existing logo somehow.

can you supply us with the vector version of the existing logo this would help design a lot with implementing your change request....you can either email each deisnger but that is cumbersome or you can upload to a fee file sharing site such as

yousendit.com

yousendit has 2 types of accounts free and paid service.

then all you need to do is post the link here

We'd like to see some entries that eliminate the "Safe Choices for Kids", so we have something to compare to.

Are there any ideas as to how we can make "from Senator Libous and Lourdes Hospital" stand out a little more in Entry #62? We'd like for it to be a little more prominent in the logo. Thanks.

Hello ams614 can I ask you for something??? when the contest ends whatever your last decision will be, could you take a little time to rank all entries??? each trophy or medal give us designers points, points that are important to us for the general clasification, I´m sure abu, Rays me and all designers that take a time to participate in your contest will be happy to take points of his work.

thanks for the great feedbacks.

Dear CH

How to Rank and Thank Designers: When it comes time for final rankings, designers appreciate when you choose the top three CONCEPTS (as opposed to variations of the same design) for the gold, silver and bronze awards. If you want to rank two different concepts by the same designer in the top three, that's fine.
Also, rank as many entries as possible, because designers get points added to their overall site standing for each blue ribbon they get.

This is how points are distributed:

1st place - 50 points
2nd place - 20 points
3rd place - 10 points
4-6th place - 5 points
7-10 place - 3 points

After that, each ranked entry gets one point for the designer. Nobody will be insulted by being ranked last, the points are still good! So if you pull some entries out of the "Not Interested" group and give them a rank, the designer gets some benefit from entering your contest.

Hope that's helpful, lots of contest holders don't realize this and most are glad to know. It's a good way to thank designers who don't win the contest prize, but who worked very hard to offer you lots of options to choose from for a great logo.

Thanks for understanding

Not a problem. I will take the time to rank the final designs when the contest is over. Thanks!

Entry #141 - The star is interesting. Could you do something to underline "Senator Libous" that goes into the bigger start image? Shooting stars perhaps?

Its funny to see how creative a "designer" could be... many (not all) of the entries come today has anything to do, copying concepts, even kinds of fonts, boys (some, not all) :D you have more than a week to work and today by magic you came here with others ideas, good for you.

I have no problem if anyone come, at last CH has to have his perfect logo, but all we think different, each head is a world, and each head has different thoughts, why not each head think different concepts???
