CAM 2018 LOGO CONTEST
 
It's time for the CAM 2018 Logo contest! We're starting extra early this year in order to get the 2018 coin designed and in production as soon as possible. Please understand that not all designs translate well for use on a geocoin, so the winning design may not be used exactly as submitted, but will serve as a starting point for our professional designer to build upon. Once the coins design is completed, it will be adapted for use on merchandise available for purchase on our Red Hat Promos storefront.

Please post your designs as replies to this thread by July 24th, 2017. On July 25th, a poll will be created for members to vote on their favorite CAM 2018 Logo design. The winning design will be announced on August 1st, 2017.

A few suggestions:
  • If you need a little inspiration, some of the CAM Logos from previous years can be viewed here
  • Excessive details are difficult to incorporate into designs suitable for coins and merchandise.
  • You may use the Maryland flag, but remember: Black high in the sky!
  • Refrain from using corporate logos or trademarked images
  • Trademarked geocaching symbols (e.g. Wherigo and EarthCache icons) can be used providing we are granted permission from Groundspeak

Disclaimer: If I draw a stick man, you won't really be sure what I was trying to draw.

I like this one. Only thing is that the bottom made me think sting ray. I assume it's a crab, right? I have no idea how to adjust it (see disclaimer above)!

Thank you for the criticism. I was indeed trying to portray a crab head on the bottom of my design without including too much detail, as suggested in the topic. I will try to take a look at it this week to see if I can adjust it to look more crab-like.

Hi all,

I thought that I'd throw my hat in the ring. My logo has several unique features:
This will be the 15th year that MGS has sponsored CAM. That, in of itself, is noteworthy.
Maryland has long been referred to as "America in Miniature".
And our state extends from the Allegany Mountains in the West to the Atlantic Ocean in the East.
And let us not forget both the Ravens and the Orioles.
Maybe it's too much detail, but I'm sure that the professional designers can make it work. I also have the logo in a layered .PSD format if that helps.

Hope you enjoy the logo suggestion.

Al W. (AKA: the FatBaldOldMan)

Maybe make the head a little smaller and add a claw on either side.

This is my first time submitting logo ideas. Here goes, I have 3 different ones. Showing my Maryland pride with the Maryland flag being a big element of my designs.

I received a CAM2015 coin and I loved the rectangular design, so I created designs that will work with a rectangular coin.

I have only completed 2 CAMs since i started geocaching, but I thoroughly enjoy exploring Maryland searching for smileys. I love learning new things about my state.

Thank you for considering my designs.
