Design Contest

{this may not be much of a "contest" if no one is interested, but i thought i'd give it a shot anyway}

Ok, so the American Heart Association's Heart Walk is fast approaching (hard to believe!). Last year, Sarah's talented friend Judy created there logo and t-shirt design. BUT...she just had a new baby and she's a wee bit swamped with the whole new-baby-craziness and I doubt she'd want to complicate life even more by taking on a design project.

So... anyone interested in putting their design skills to work for a great cause? My friend/co-captain Sarah and I thought we'd put feelers out to everyone "artsy" we know, get a pool of designs to choose from, and {walah!}--a beautiful logo to print on shirts for the walk!

And what do YOU get out of it (besides fabulous karma)?? A prime real estate spot on the back of our shirts! Yeah, that may not be much, but a picture's worth a thousand words right? Tons of people are bound to see your business logo at the walk. I mean, we've already got nearly 20 people on our team who will be wearing the shirts, plus ALL the people who attend the walk (like 40,000 or something?!). (And if that's still not enough, if you're local and want a fantastic golf eval, let me know--I'll throw that in courtesy of R--hey, it's a $175-value!)So if this sounds like something you'd want to help us out with, here are the deets:
  • Team name: Big Steps for Baby Strokes

  • T-shirt color: Purple with yellow lettering (to match the wristbands)

  • Dimensions: Doesn't really matter; but we just need one main logo/design that would go on the front of the shirt (logos of local businesses who support us will go on the back)

  • Special note: We will also need a different, yet similar design for the pediatric stroke survivors (last year the shirts said, "I AM a pediatric stroke survivor.")

Thanks in advance to anyone (anyone??? Bueller??) who wants to donate their talents for a great cause!

{if you want pics of last year's shirts for inspiration, just let me know}
