Announcing the Bimmerfest 2007 Event Logo Design Competition...

Any graphic designers in the house?

Looking for someone to create a design that incorporates/integrates the thematic
elements of Bimmerfest, BMW cars, and Cinco De May (if that's possible!)...

Winner will get a prize.

The design will need to be very high-resolution.

I made this one myself (obviously, it sucks)...

Not that I have any room to laugh, but your design is very classic. It reminds me of the 5 for $5 t-shirts that seem to be sold in every Mexican tourist-trap town.

I don't understand the need to include "Cinco de Mayo" in the logo at all. Kind of dilutes the brand if you ask me.

It is great that the event is being held on that day, and that there might be some theming as it relates to the venue, but I wouldn't mess with the logo.

I kind of agree with you, but if the logo is specific to the 2007 event only, then having a Cinco de Mayo influence in the logo makes some sense.

...Just a separate logo for the 2007 event only, not a complete brand or image overhaul.

Santa Barbara has a huge Hispanic heritage; perhaps befitting to include this element for this year?
(The "Old Spanish Days Fiesta" is what Santa Barbara is most famous for)

Hey Jon,

Nice to see you, Bud!

We can't use the actual roundel per se, but certain elements hinting at it should be acceptable...



After all, this whole thing exists solely to celebrate THE BRAND...

Any new mods to your award-winning car for this year?

yes!!!
I think a basic 2 color version (maybe use the Patron green, orange, or yellow colors for the base color of the bottle, and then the black label) would look pretty cool on a shirt

Jon -
What is the deadline for design submissions?

How many colors max can be used?

No BMW logo, any other limitations?

There are no limitations or restrictions.

Time limit? How about March 31st?

The winning designs may be used to create an official Bimmerfest 2007 poster,
or perhaps a t-shirt design?

Im not sure incorporating BMW cars with tequila is a good idea. But it is a pretty funny pic! Last years Polizei shirts were shweet!!! Since maybe you cant use the roundel, you could use the grills or something like that that really captures bimmers?

another idea

Just another idea for the mix. I know it's pushing the "per se" limit, but it's just an idea.

Looks like we have a contender...



May need to tone down the Roundel a bit, but you are definitely on the right track!

I like the right picture in Dave 330i's signature. That one gets my vote.
