July/August Graphic Design Challenge

Post by pawprints » Sat Jul 11, 2020 5:53 pm

It's that time of year again Cherries! This is my 5th annual Summer Graphic Design Logos Challenge! It's fun and it's simple for the busy days of summer. The challenge 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.

Here are this year's logo choices:

As an added bonus if you use any aspect of the logo itself besides the colors, I will enter your submission twice. Some examples would be if your chosen logo has a circle shape and you use circles, or if your chosen logo has scallops and you use scallops, or if your chosen logo has wavy lines and you use wavy lines, or if there is an image in your logo like a  heart or paw prints and you use that item… you get the idea. Keep in mind that in order to get the bonus submission you must use something from the same logo that you chose for your colors! No mixing of logos!

This seems to be a summer favorite so I hope you all have fun with this. I like to keep it simple in the summer.

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

There are so many logos to choose from so there is no limit to the amount of submissions, as long as each submission uses a different logo

Bonus entry if you use some aspect of the logo itself as long as it is from the same logo AND you let us know what aspect of it inspired you.

You may combine with one other challenge that allows combining.

This will run through the end of August. Post your submission to this thread by midnight (whenever midnight is for you) August 31st. A random winner of all participants will receive a $5 ACOT GC from me!

Most of all have fun!

Here is my layout and I hope to do more of them! For this one I chose the Yoplait Logo. I love the red and yellowish orange color mixed with the black. I used flowers too as there is a flower in the logo.

If I do any more of them, which I really hope to as I really love some of these color combos, I will add them here.

Hope you all have fun with this!

Hey Barb! I have a question about the Sargento logo, which is the one I chose to make a layout.  I'm looking at it on a different device now and I'm wondering if I was wrong...is that gold with the black?  On my laptop it looked brown to me and I made a black & kraft color schemed layout.  On my ipad now I'm wondering if it is gold?  Thanks  :-D

It is a golden, mustard like color. Don't worry about it. If that is how you saw it it's no biggie and not a problem : )

Thanks for your help with the Sargento ad Barb  :-D  Here's the page I made, I used black & kraft with some added white & gray neutrals.  I was inspired by the ad to make a fun top and bottom border on my page.  I went with angles instead of swirls, but the colors and the borders are what popped out to me when I looked through the ads.  Fun challenge, thanks!

You're welcome! And the colors pretty much match! I'm glad you got so much inspiration from it!

I picked the Polaroid logo. Since the logo has this horizontal strip along the bottom, I included lots of horizontal strips in my layout.

Hubby's birthday - July 2020 I've been working on baby books so long, it was fun to work on something current :)
Used the black and gold from the Sargento Logo.

I used the Stampedous colors. Originally I had the design from the company's name in the middle but when I was done the layout I didn't like it. I found this old Cosmo Cricket chipboard that I liked. So I torn my whole layout apart and started over again.
