First off, I want to say THANK YOU to everyone! Since last Tuesday, I have received many entries for the InsideRedbox Logo contest. Because of these entries, I have been able to narrow down and better clarify what I am looking for in the new design for this site. Below you will find details on the revised contest…
This last week as been great for Redbox Codes – with the addition of multiple new codes in the last 7 days. These codes are listed below…
And, last Tuesday I was contacted by Fox News and they requested to do an interview with me in regards to this website. Read more about this interview in the full update below…
LOGO CONTEST 2.0
Thanks to YOU, I have really been able to figure out what I want the new logo and new InsideRedbox.com website to look like. I appreciate all of the entries and comments. I hope that the new direction from me will help everyone better understand what I am looking for and better focus your entries.
I have broken this up into 2 parts: “The Logo” and “The Name”. You are also welcome to put in an entry for just “The Logo”, just “The Name”, or both.
The Logo: For the logo, what I am really looking for is a graphic (most likely a vector graphic) that shows the visitor upon first look what this website is about. Perhaps something with a dvd, a “red” box, a tv, etc… It should NOT contain a photo. It should NOT contain the site name or any text.
The Name: This should be an artistic (likely vector) representation of the name of the site: “Inside Redbox”. The .com part is not necessary. I want to be able to reuse the “Inside” part of this graphic on other sites I am working on currently, and the “Redbox” portion of the graphic will be unique to this site. You can combine the words in an artistic fashion, but note that I will need to be able to combine the “Inside” part of the graphic in the same way in the other sites.
You are welcome to use a simple graphic to replace a letter in “The Name” if you feel in contributes to the overall theme. Please note that the “Inside” part is very important, as it will serve as an identity for at least 3 other sites, possibly more.
But, after all this has been said, feel free to use your creativity how you know best. I am certainly not an artist – I just wanted to give stricter guidelines for you to follow. So, please take this info as guidelines, and nothing more.
Thanks again to everyone who has submitted something so far. Each entry has helped shape what I want the final graphics to look like.
As before, go ahead and send your entries via email to “contest [at] insideredbox [dot] com”. If at all possible, use a standard graphic format such as PNG, GIF, or PSD. If you are working in Illustrator, please don’t send an AI file, but a PNG instead.
PRIZE UPDATE: Remember, the winner of this contest will get to work with me on some future (paid) projects, my other “Inside” sites, and get a link to their website from InsideRedbox.com. Also, if I use a part of your graphic, but you are not the overall winner, you will get “6 months FREE rentals at the Redbox” courtesy of InsideRedbox.com
As always, feel free to ask questions and leave comments below.
These last few weeks have been great for new codes, and these last 7 days have been the best of all.
The latest codes are:
So, keep using and reporting on codes – and keep getting free movies!
