Logo contest reminder!

Are you good at logo design? Midori and Laura Antoniou are looking for someone to design a simple, neat logo for our new weekend intensive, Passionate Bonds.

This special, limited registration class is intended to allow people involved or interested in D/S relationships to discover and create for themselves the optimal way of expressing and getting what they truly want. The themes of the classes and workshops include personal discovery, values, power dynamics and protocol.

Some advice and ideas:

It needs to include the words Passionate Bonds.
Don't make it too complex. See the Wikipedia article on logos for some information on what makes a good logo.
Stay away from well known BDSM symbolism - no leather pride flag, no little zen thingie, no handcuffs.
Ditto, no gothic visuals, cartoons, or cheap clip art.
Although color can be used, the logo should not depend on it; it must be acceptable in black and white.

The entries must be submitted as a scalable vector graphic in EPS format, and also as a JPG. All submitted work must be original and not based on any pre-existing design. Files may be sent to Laura@Lantoniou.com

The winning artist will get a handsome selection of autographed books from both presenters, including at least two first edition books (hand numbered) from the Marketplace series. Plus, you will get bragging rights and mitzvah points. And, if you intend to attend one of these events in the future, you will be fast-tracked past any waiting lists.

This contest ends at 11:30 PM, EST, July 31. These instructions may be announced, e-mailed, cross-posted and otherwise distributed at will.
