Morrisville, PA (PRWEB) January 5, 2011
Do you like the new Big Ten logo? Think you can design a better one? Here is your chance!
MycroBurst.com is proud to sponsor an unofficial logo design contest to redesign the Big Ten Conference logo. Anyone can enter the contest and compete to win a $500 prize and a little publicity. “You can’t mess with the honored tradition of the Big Ten. As a Penn State grad and fan of the Big 10, we want to prove that there are better designs out there,” said Joe Witte, Vice President of MycroBurst.com.
The Big Ten Conference just rolled out their new logo to reflect the 2011 addition of a 12th school, the University of Nebraska, to their roster. While this is big news, the new logo they unveiled to reflect the change has not been admired and praised in the press. Descriptions of the new logo include the phrases “looks like it took 25 seconds to make” (Michael Hurley, NESN.com), and “looks as if it were designed using Microsoft Paint by the most boring fourth-grader” (Andy Staples, SI.com).
The Big Ten Conference deserves better than this. We know you can make us proud.
The MycroBurst.com Big Ten contest idea came out of a conversation between MycroBurst.com staff members who felt the new logo lacked the creativity, strength, and stature of the conference. “We hope to attract professional and amateur logo designers, and really anybody who has a great idea and wants to share it,” said Zaheer Dodhia, CEO of MycroBurst.com, referring to the unique design contest format used for all MycroBurst.com projects. Clients submit details about what they need designed, choose their own prize amount, and select the winner when the contest is over. The 10,000+ members of the MycroBurst.com design community have won over half a million dollars in prizes so far.
