GooseFeet Logo Contest on 06/28/2010 17:23:08 MDT Print View

In celebration of selling my 100th pair of down socks, I am setting up a contest for a new logo for my company.

You may send me a logo that you design, and once the contest ends, if I choose your design, you will receive 1 free pair of socks. If your design is not chosen, and I deem your entry to be a serious effort, you will receive 10% off any order through my website.

Please email designs to: goosefeet@hotmail.com

If your design is chosen, the design is my property and you will have no rights to the design.

All submissions must be your own original work.

For example, one design I have thought of is: the word GooseFeet inside an oval with two goose footprints as the e's in feet. Feel free to come up with your own design, though.

There is no limit to the number of submissions, and the contest will end on Monday, July 12th at 11:59:59 EST.

Congratulations!

If I was a little more skilled at PS, I'd give a shot at the logo.

And if I didn't already have FF down booties, you'd be getting an order from me.

Be sure to post the winning logo when your done.

Congrats on the 100th, Ben. I just used mine and they kept my feet warm at 10,000' in the Cascades in a 35 degree bag (WM Highlight) camping on deep snow.

That is a great idea to have a logo contest here.

Ben, I think you already have the perfect logo: the goose wearing Goose Feet on your website! You could photoshop it a little more so the ends of the original webbed feet don't show, and there is software (I don't have it but I've seen it) that will turn it into the equivalent of a black-and-white sketch if that's what you want.

IMHO, it's impossible to improve on what you already have!

I received notice yesterday that my Goose Feet have shipped; I can hardly wait! Of course right now temps here in the Portland, OR area are in the 90's, so I won't be testing them for a while. I'm going to Wyoming's Wind Rivers in August, which will probably provide a really good workout for them!

Mary,

I need a good logo that I can make a sticker, tag, etc. out of that's not too complicated. Thanks to Roger C. for hastily making the first "logo".

BTW, only 2 more days until the contest ends if anyone wants to try their hand at a logo.

Nicely done. Congrats on your acquisition as well.

Mr. Smith... can you please post the other designs that were considered. I'm sure their work deserves some recognition. Actually, I just want to see them. Haha! :D

Here's my submission:
Goose Feet

It pales in comparison to the winning entry, but I had fun playing around with it!

question on 07/14/2010 05:29:04 MDT Print View

When will the stickers be ready? Will one be included when a purchase is made? What about if you have already made a purchase for the booties?

By the way, I really like mine. All my backpacking friends were very invious of mine this past winter. Great warmth to weight ratio. Plus I really like how small they pack up.

Re: question on 07/14/2010 07:09:14 MDT Print View

Robert,

I will try to get some stickers made when I get back from my trips to MT and DC in early August. I will probably include one with every order from then on, but won't be able to send any to previous purchasers without maybe a $1 fee to cover sticker, postage, and handling. With more than 120 orders filled, I don't have them time or the resources to send one to all those guys.
