Enter the Exciting and Lucrative Field of Logo Design
The New York-Penn League wants YOU to help redesign their logo. The league’s current mark has announced its retirement following the end of the season (how a “mark” announces its retirement is beyond me, but I’m just going by what the press release says), and the 14-team circuit is now accepting new logo submissions from all comers.
From the press release:
“All serious artists are invited to submit their logo designs to firstname.lastname@example.org. Designs are due no later than June 1, 2008 and must be done in Vector format using Adobe Illustrator of Macromedia Freehand. The winner will be voted on at a New York-Penn League general manager’s meeting at a later date.”
Now, I’m a very intuitive person, and I know what you’re asking yourself at this point: “What’s in it for me?”
Well, Mr. Greedy, let me refer you once again to the press release:
“The logo winner will receive a prize packet from the New York-Penn League consisting of a lifetime NYPL pass, merchandise, promotional items, the opportunity to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at any site in the league, promotion on each team’s website and much more.”
Not bad, huh? So let’s get going, artists. The NYPL needs a new mark!
Promotion of the Day — It’s a light day for Promos, so I’m going to lift this straight from my Promotion Preview column:
Altoona Curve — Pack Your Bags For Myrtle Beach/As the Curve Turns
The Curve and the Myrtle Beach Pelicans are part of the same ownership
group, which leads to interesting promotions like this one. This afternoon, 20 lucky Altoonians (Altoonites?) will win a bus
trip and hotel accommodations for two in Myrtle Beach from April 23-26.
Once these fans have arrived in Myrtle Beach, they will be able to take
in a Pelicans game at beautiful BB&T Coastal Field. Sounds pretty
sweet, right? Shockingly, Myrtle Beach does not seem to be running a
corresponding “Win a Trip to Altoona” promotion.
Also taking place in Altoona on Wednesday: “As the Curve Turns,” a game-long salute to the soap opera.
