    It's time for a fresh, new, clean start. Don't you all think? And what better way to do it than to celebrate with a member-contributed contest. That's right! We want you to come up with the best possible logo design you can to represent the new & improved Barefoot Runners Society and submit your designs to be entered into a contest that your fellow BRS members will then vote on.

    We need those designs soon, since International Barefoot Running Day is fast approaching, so please get busy and send them in!

    (We'll set a contest expiration date shortly, but we wanted to get you all thinking about this and get you all fired up about it!)

    CONTEST DEADLINE WAS MARCH 15, 2012, but since some of you are still finalizing your ideas, we have extended it another week. Get those ideas and submissions in!

    So what format does it have to be in? I only have colored pencils, paper, and a scanner with which to submit.

    Digital (.jpg, .png, .bmp). Do you have an idea? Do the best you can, scan it in, and we'll see if maybe Zap can work on it with you. I can't make promises on her behalf though, and right now she's traveling.

    We can take the colors from the winning artwork. That's fine with me.

    Hopefully just two colors (not a whole array of colors), as it then starts to get costly in printing multiple colors on tee shirts and business materials, etc.

    I'm not much of an artist per se but I'm pretty good at turning scanned material into digital artwork. I worked in pre-press for a few years. So, I guess I'm offering my technical services ...

    fwiw, gif and png both support transparency but the final format would be a vector pdf.

    Definitely TWO color and hard, clean lines. And a little more humor/personality than the last one.

    I like it. I was asked about this whole ordeal today and after some slight explanation they responded by saying "people suck..what can ya do?" my response "start a new site and take everyone with you". New site, new logo works for me. I doubt I'll design anything because I'm too busy trying to figure out the new site but I'm sure someone will come up with something nice!

    That would be great! Thanks. So the next question is...I am not positive I can get to a scanner in a reasonable amount of time, so would I be able to email you a photo instead? It's a pretty simple drawing with very little detail, so you could have lots of fun with it.

    This is the gist of my "logo" except, I can't figure out where to put "Barefoot Runner's Society" -so many places to choose from. I think it should go in the upper left hand in a semi-circle, one word under the other. Thoughts? logo10.jpg

    Thanks, Jen. We'll add it to the possibilities.
