Hello Linguist List Subscribers and Friends (and Graphic Designers!),
This month we started a brand new contest: Design a New LINGUIST List Logo! We are looking for a new logo for our website—one that is modern, cool, and captures the essences of LINGUIST List. LINGUIST List is operated by and used by linguists, so why not have a linguist design our new logo?
To see the history of LINGUIST List’s logos, please refer to our previous blog post: http://blog.linguistlist.org/uncategorized/ethos-pathos-logos/
It’s time for a change. We are calling all of our graphic design savvy subscribers out to help us with this task! If you are interested in design and looking to get your name out there, and want to help us out, please read our terms and conditions and enter the contest! We have more than 25,000 mailing list subscribers, more than 27,000 social media followers in the world, and more than 1.5 million unique visitors on the website per year. That’s a lot of people viewing your art work!
Please send any logos you’ve designed to email@example.com in svg format.
Please check out a few of the submission we’ve already received by some very talented linguists:
How cool are these new logo ideas? We are going to go to a vote soon, but before we do, we want to put out ONE FINAL CALL for submissions! Please send your logo submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Remember, as always, LINGUIST List is a free and openly available resource dedicated to providing the best service possible for all fields of linguistics. Please support the LINGUIST List Fund Drive 2015 with a contribution:
