Boulder City, NV

Library Logo Contest

2013 marks the 70th year of Library Service in Boulder City, Nevada.  To celebrate, we are inviting our public to help us design not 1 but 2 logos for the library.  We are asking for submissions which reflect our service to the Youth of Boulder City and to the entire community.   The winning logos will be used throughout the library, on promotional materials, the website, on library cards, and many other ways.  Your design could be a very important part of our Library’s image.  Entrants of all ages may submit up to 3 Entries for the Contest.

The winning logos will reflect the Boulder City Library’s Mission:

The Boulder City Library strives to strengthen our community through access to information, entertainment and ideas, with a special mission to inspire a love of reading and learning.

For more information, please contact Lynn Schofield-Dahl, Library Director, via email:  lynn@bclibrary.org

The purpose of the contest is to design logos for the Boulder City Library.  The logos will be used on stationery, online, in print, on the website, on displays, and more.  The Boulder City Library is seeking designs for logos which appeal to both young library users and older library users.  All Entrants may submit either General Designs, Youth Designs, or designs for both categories.   We encourage Entrants of all ages.

  •  The logo will need to resize easily, and will look good in black and white as well as in color.
  • The logo needs to look good at relatively small sizes as well as larger sizes.
  • Entrants should take care to ensure that their Entries are not in any way similar to existing logos or other copyrighted images.
  • The logo should not contain any text.
  • Entries must be submitted in JPG format.  Due to the requirements of high quality printing, an additional copy in EPS format is encouraged.
  • Up to 3 colors may be used, but the final logo must also look good in black and white.  Colors should be CMYK or RGB if possible.   Please identify CMYK or RGP numbers.
  • Because the final version of the logo will need to be suitable for high quality printing, the Boulder City Library reserves the right to make necessary adjustments in color, size, file format, etc..
