Tweet me a brief and I will design a logotype for free

July 3rd, 2009

(this post is sticky so scroll down for latest)

This summer I will design one logotype per day and film my process. The project will start the 10th of July and end the 10th of August. But for this to work I need willing clients, so here is how you apply:

• The brief must be submitted in one single tweet.
• The tweet must start with the word Brief: and include the hash-tag #logotypse (so I can find them)
• The brief must contain a reference to a character in a film or tv-series that personifies your brand.

After you tweet I will select one brief per day, design a logo and publish the result on the logotyp.se website. The file containing the logotype will be publicly available for download free of charge. You can use it or change it however you like, and that’s it. What you will see is what you will get.

Why am I doing this?

I like the craft of designing logotypes, however the value today is not in the logo creation but in the strategy around the whole brand. So I rarely design logotypes anymore as a part of my design studio. If you want to know more about me just google Tomas Seo or follow me on twitter.

    a person I know submitted i brief. And now that person feels inclined to perhaps complement the brief, given the comments Tomas has made on briefs (e.g. no disney characters, too many blog logos, etc.). At the same time the person feels that would kill the short brief idea.
    Any advice?

    p.s. It would be nice with a “recent comment” widget in the sidebar here at logotyp.se. d.s.


  9. Tomas Seo says:

    @Don: It’s totally ok to resubmit, and there is a lot of briefs of those submitted that I will do. It’s not first come first served, it’s more like; does this feel repetitive to do for me or for the audience to watch? I choose to not have a recent comment widget of lazy reasons, that required a whole different wordpress design. I prioritized to have the films larger. I have time to do wider page design all together with two sidebar columns otherwise it would be too much scrolling to get down to the posts.
