Weekly Glance of Awesomeness #13 admin | October 23rd, 2008
I’m still reeling from the excitement that is Ross getting a MacBook Pro, but I’ve managed to calm down, click the “Browse” section on our site, and find interesting projects for your Weekly Glance of Awesomeness!
Glance #1: Southern’s Fine Dining Logo
The Award: $400
End Date: October 27th
The Breakdown: Chef Steve is an Austin, Texas-based Executive Chef who owns a full-service catering company. Though I wish crowdSPRING could have a company chef a la Google, I guess we’ll just have to stick with ordering from Burger Baron every now and then and having chefs post projects on crowdSPRING. Well, Chef Steve is looking for a stellar logo design that will appeal to the bridges, corporate suits, and military folks whose events he’ll be catering. He’s into Celtic Trinity knots, cowboy boots, + tartan. Let’s see what you can whip up!
Glance #2: Marketing Materials for Meetup.com
The Award: $500
End Date: October 27th
The Breakdown: I mentioned Meetup in my How To Leverage Social Media: Where to Start? blog post the other week, and what do you know – they post a project on crowdSPRING! Meetup is a cool site with the tagline, “Use the internet to get off the internet!” The website is a place where people can post offline meetups to connect with others in their area who share similar interests. The company is looking to attract sponsors and need fun, entertaining marketing materials, including a PowerPoint template + a one sheet to attract potential clients. If anyone can do “fun” and “entertaining,” it must be our creatives!
Glance #3: “Poop On ___” Diapers
The Award: $200
End Date: October 28th
The Breakdown: How could you possibly ignore a project named, “Poop!”? Although extremely juvenile, there’s just something about the word “poop” that makes most people giggle. So, Deuce Diapers has decided to capitalize on that phenomenon by making “Poop On ____” diapers, where the blank will be filled in with your most despised sports team. Hate the Ohio State Buckeyes? Slap one of these diapers on your child’s rear end, and maybe you will get some ounce of strange satisfaction. They need crowdSPRING’s creatives to come up with the “Poop On” design. Quite the amusing project!
Glance #4: FundRaz Logo
The Award: $175
End Date: October 29th
The Breakdown: FundRaz is a new site looking to help youth organizations, ranging from sports, clubs, bands, etc., raise money. They will be providing the technology to allow and empower these youth-based organizations to market and manage their fundraising initiatives. They are pretty open as to what they want in a logo, as long as it is easily conveyable yet outside of the box. Creative freedom! Go figure!
There you have it for this week, folks. Tune in next week for more Glances of Awesomeness, and feel free to send me any leads!
