July/August Graphic Design Challenge

Postby pawprints » Sun Jul 09, 2017 8:13 pm

Last summer everyone seemed to enjoy my logo challenge, so I decided to run it again this year with a whole new batch of logos. It's fun and simple for the busy days of summer. And this time there will be opportunities for bonus entries depending on the logo you choose, so stay tuned for that.

My challenge for you this month is to choose one of these logos and use those colors for your layout. Your layout must only contain the colors in the logo you choose, except that you may add black, white, gray, and/or cream. Other than that you must only use the colors in your chosen logo. Please let us know which logo you chose.

             
                                            

*BONUS*
Most of the logos have an item in them, and if you use that item in your layout you will get an extra entry. Here are the logos that contain a bonus item:
7 Eleven - use the number 7 in your layout for a bonus entry
Burger King - use a burger in your layout for a bonus entry
Macy's - use a star in your layout for a bonus entry
Amy Tangerine - use a slice of a citrus fruit in your layout for a bonus entry
Sprite - use a lemon and/or lime in your layout for a bonus entry
Dove - use a bird in your layout for a bonus entry
Blue's Clues - use a paw print in your layout for a bonus entry
BP - use a starburst in your layout for a bonus entry
Justice - use a heart in your layout for a bonus entry
MLB - use a baseball and/or bat and/or baseball player in your layout for a bonus entry
Queen & Co. - use a crown in your layout for a bonus entry
Snapple - use a sun in your layout for a bonus entry
Sunkist - use a sun and/or leaf in your layout for a bonus entry
Master Card - use a circle or circles in your layout for a bonus entry

For the logos that don't contain an item, here are the requirements for a bonus entry:
Dairy Queen - use ice cream in your layout for a bonus entry
Lego - use lego bricks in your layout for a bonus entry
M&M's - use M&M candies in your layout for a bonus entry
Nick Jr. - use any character from a Nick Jr. show in your layout for a bonus entry
Unleashed - use a pet in your layout for a bonus entry
Bounty - use something that is used for cleaning in your layout for a bonus entry

Remember YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE THESE ITEMS for the challenge. You will get a bonus entry if you do, but you don't need too. Please let me know if you used an item on your layout for a bonus entry.

Open to paper, digi, hybrid, cards, crafts, or whatever this inspires you to create.

This month I am not limiting the number of submissions since there are so many different logos to choose from, so go for it!

You may combine with one other challenge that allows combining.

Post your submission to this thread by the end of the day August 31st. A random winner of all participants will receive a $5 ACOT GC from me!

I hope you all have fun with this!

I choose the colors of the Amy Tangerine logo for my layout. I love how the orange, yellow, and red look together! I am hoping to do more pages this month using some of the other logos I posted. If I do any more I will add them in.

I did enjoy it so much last summer, was it that long ago?? - so great you are bringing it up! 

If we open the M&M's, can we use the colors in the bag?  (Just teasing  )

I was thinking the same thing...has it been that long ago? I loved this challenge last summer and the bonus that has been added this year looks very interesting. Awesome example. What a bright choice of colors. I can't wait to get started on this challenge (challenges). My mind is spinning with ideas. Thank you for bringing it back again.

I'm going to start off with the MLB logo (no bonus).  I was frantically fussy cutting stars last night at 11pm, hoping to make the midnight deadline for the 7/3 MMC challenge #1 but ran out of time.  Wasn't sure this would fit any other challenge, then I saw this new challenge this morning!  So I'm throwing it in here :)  Also decided to put it in Rewind (What's on TV) challenge.

What a great two pager and I love how you used the red, white and blue of the MLB logo against the cream background!

Great job using the red, white, and blues of the MLB logo! I love that cute banner of BBQ items!

I also loved this challenge from last year!  Such bold fun colors.  LOVE your page example---great colors together, ones I would not think to combine!
Be in this world to live out loud.

I love the stars and scatters and music embellies, and the Bounty logo colors go so well with your cute pics!

Here is another--I used the Dove color scheme, mostly navy blue, with gold lettering and arrow.  I also threw in a little gray to match the silver tones, and punched a little grey bird for the bonus.
Combined with the Cherry Lift challenge.

I love how you used the Dove logo colors! The little bird is perfect and I love all the scattered stars and the gold title!
