Weekly Glance of Awesomeness #14 admin | October 30th, 2008
It’s time for the Weekly Glance of Awesomeness! Check out these fun projects that you might like participate in (or just admire from afar):
Glance #1: Texas Divorce Bootcamp Logo
The Award: $250
End Date: November 3rd
The Breakdown: Although going through a divorce is neither easy nor enjoyable, the idea of a “divorce bootcamp” piqued my curiosity. Texas Divorce Bootcamp is apparently a legal seminar that advises people (their target audience are males) in preparations for their divorce. The interesting part of the project is that they are looking for a military-esque yet professional logo design. I guess it explains the phrase, “Don’t mess with Texas” a little more!
Glance #2: Logo for Talkshow24/7
The Award: $450
End Date: November 3rd
The Breakdown: Marc Horowitz is a hoot. As a self-described “maximalist,” Horowitz has done everything to bring attention to himself by living in a Toyota Camry and traveling across the United States (which landed him some commercial spots + a billboard in New York City’s Times Square), to garnering over 1 million views of him putting on his underwear. Seriously. Now, he’s hosting an online talk show that will air 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and he’s inviting you (yes, you!) to come in and broadcast whatever you want from his sunny Los Angeles living room. He’s looking for a lo-fi, bright logo to match the show’s style, and he’s on a tight deadline!
Glance #3: Artistdata Logo Revision
The Award: $175
End Date: November 4th
The Breakdown: Artistdata is a neat website for musicians that allows an artist or band to enter in data on their site and have it posted to several social networking outlets such as Myspace, Purevolume, Last.fm, Eventful, + more. They will soon branch into other sites and offer simultaneous updates for blogs and other good promotional content. The concept is pretty great, and saves a bunch of time updating various sites with the same information. Currently, Artistdata is looking for a logo refresh that still stays in line with their existing brand. Help them out!
Glance #4: Batterymouth Logo
The Award: $275
End Date: November 6th
The Breakdown: Batterymouth is a Chicago-based 3 person improv group looking for a new logo that reflects their audience’s cool and edgy style. For inspiration, they are seeking a presence that is more akin to an indie rock band versus just a comedic improv group. So, if you spend your time checking out Pitchfork and attending Flatstock exhibits while listening to Band of Horses and The National, then this project may be the one for you.
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!
