An Awesome & Timeless Logo for Those Who Served Our Nation and are starting or already have their own business - this is their new trade association. We are looking for a logo ASAP. We will close the contest early and award an additional $50 bonus if we have a winning design by midnight on Friday, 7/2/10.
We are a non-profit trade association. We help to promote and assist veteran and military business owners. The association will provide many resources including connecting these business owners with business in both the private and government sectors, certification of the vet owned or military owned status and promote it as such. We will be the voice of these business owners. we work to pass favorable legislation, as well as offering them benefits afforded associations. We will have conferences, mentoring and classes, including webinars. Our goal is to grow this association into tens of thousands or more members and bring veteran and military business owners together in a positive and collaborative association. We want starting their own business (part of the American dream) to be a viable option for returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan who have sacrificed a great deal to serve. We want to provide them the skills and resources to be successful and happy.
Our target will be veterans and active duty military and reservists/national guard who own businesses or are beginning a new business. This includes service disabled veterans.
The name VAMBOA and logo with either Veterans and Military Business Owners Association spelled out underneath or to the right of logo. Perhaps some type of a seal (of approval) with VAMBOA around the outside of the seal and Vet Owned inside the seal. Elegant and clean is nice as well. Too much small detail could be lost if logo is smaller /reduced on business cards.
We are open to your ideas and creativity. Please go for it and we will consider every entry carefully and appreciate your efforts.
We do not like dark or black backgrounds- Think red, white, blue and gold on a white or light background.
Please no eagles - they always look too evil
Please no cartoon characters of military or veterans.
We will be using this logo on everything including our web site. This logo will be the face of this organization, VAMBOA.
We will also award a $50 bonus to the winner in addition to the monies won.
For some examples, you can refer to the following websites:
