PIXARTPRINTING LOGO CONTEST

THRILL US!

Opening date: 3 pm (GMT+1) on 27 June 2016

Closing date: 3 pm (GMT+1) on 1st september 2016

NB: the graphic projects uploaded will only be visible to Pixartprinting. All logo concepts that will not be awarded a prize will remain the property of their authors.

THE BACKGROUND

Pixartprinting is the printing technology partner for thousands of customers through its web-to-print shop, and has been so for sixteen years. Every day, more than 8,000 graphic projects are uploaded on our platform, to be printed on assorted media and then delivered throughout Europe, and now the USA too.
Pixartprinting has never stopped growing, improving and evolving to stay on the cutting edge. It is in this spirit that we have set up the contest: for the first time, we are turning to the huge network of graphic designers and creatives who have been choosing Pixartprinting for years.

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

We are looking for a concept on which to build a new logo: a contemporary one, capable of expressing the distinctive traits of Pixartprinting and its constant evolution. Above all, something evocative. You don't need to present a finalised project, what we are looking for is a logo concept..
You may even submit a draft, and of course you can attach all the graphic material that can help us understand your idea's creative potential. The route you took to devise your submission and/or a few examples of how it can be featured and the concepts you drew inspiration from are more interesting for us than the logo's vector image.
The winning concept will be the basis from which we will create Pixartprinting's new brand logo.

OUR VALUES

Our values are innovation, quality, competitiveness and cutting-edge technology.

TARGET

Printing, on any media or size, is necessary whenever a project needs to be promoted. It is something both individuals and businesses need.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

You can upload your logo concept in jpg, tiff or pdf format. You may attach any other graphic or textual material you consider useful for a better understanding of your project's creative potential.
Only original and unpublished projects may be uploaded.
If you wish to integrate your concept by submitting example images, e.g. drafts for press campaigns or suggestions on how to use the logo, you may use stock photo material (watermarked). They will only be used internally, to allow us to evaluate your project and fully understand your proposal.
Files uploaded on to Zooppa must not contain any indication liable to identify their author. Any file bearing details of the author's identity will not be transmitted to Pixartprinting by Zooppa.
The winner may be asked to collaborate with Pixartprinting to finalise the project (a specific budget may be agreed on with the author).
Uploading instructions: a thumbnail image file for the project (in jpg, png or gif format) must be uploaded in the first step. The second step will allow additional material (presentations, images, applications, etc.) to be uploaded in .zip format.
NB: your concept will be viewed by Pixartprinting only, and will not be shared with third parties at any time.

MATERIALS AVAILABLE

IMPLEMENTING YOUR CREATIVITY

The winning logo concept will be developed either by Pixartprinting's internal creative team or by directly involving the author (with a specific budget to be agreed on with the author).
The graphic projects uploaded will only be visible to Pixartprinting. All logo concepts that will not be awarded a prize will remain the property of their authors.
