The Contest Brief

Contest Holder Name:  tomrford

Company Name: Grand Forks County

Company Slogan: Heart of the Red River Valley

Description and What We Do: The County of Grand Forks, ND is a government body within the state of North Dakota. The County currently uses its County Seal as its "logo." The County is looking for a logo that can be used throughout all departments within the organization on publications, advertisements, job applications, etc. The County of Grand Forks has two major Rivers, which run through it, creating a river fork within the county seat of Grand Forks. The county also has many bridges due to the rivers. We are a heavily agricultural county, within an agricultural state. However, the state of ND is leading the way in the development of the Unmanned Aircraft Systems industry, the majority of that activity is happening here in Grand Forks County. We also have a major Air Force base in GF County. We would like a logo to capture the spirit of those descriptors.

Industry Type: General

Top Three Things To Communicate Through Our Logo Design:

#1 We value our agricultural community

#2 Home of Grand Forks Air Force Base

#3 the County is the Hear of the Red River Valley

Welcome and Thank You for Choosing!

Here are some helpful hints to make sure you get the most out of our site, and your contest.


1. Please rank your submissions or post general comments a minimum of 1 time per day while your contest is running. This is required should you want to request an extension to your contest and will produce the best results from our designers.

2. Once your contest receives 40 design concepts, your prize amount will become "Guaranteed".

3. Please make the most out of our messaging and comment systems.

a) Place general comments on this main contest page to give all of the designers your preferences and what you would like to see or not see.

b) Clicking on any designers submssion will bring up a page of all submissions by that designer with an option to post private comments pertaining only to his work. (Only the contest Holder and that designer can view and post to this page)

c) Clicking on the designer username under a submission will allow you to send a completely private message to that specific designer.

4. Please "Eliminate" only those logo designs that you feel have no chance of winning your contest. (Be aware that eliminating everything may discourage participation from the designers.)

5. Please rank the designs 1 to 10 and there are also options to rank Elements you like, Colors you like, and Fonts you like. This will help guide the designers toward the design that you are looking for. For the best variety of designs, try not to keep the same design ranked #1 for an extended time as this may result in copying of that design.

6. We require that you do not ask one Designer to use elements or concepts from another Designer. The general rule is that, if a Designer was the first to use and submit the idea in one of their designs, they essentially own that concept or idea for the remainder of the contest. We will remove any deisgns that use copied concepts. Requests or ideas you have put in your Contest Brief or posted as contest attachments are fair game and open to everyone. Concepts that are considered obvious will also be fair game, for example: a dog & cat for a pet hospital, shopping bag for an e-commerce company, a tooth for a dentist, initials for a lawyer, etc.

7. Once your contest ends and is in judging mode, any designer that is ranked #1 #2 #3 #4 or #5 will be able to upload any revisions you request. Simply rank a designers entry to allow revisions to be uploaded.


Discussion Guidelines:

1. Designers and Contest Holders please always be respectful of each other, we all have the same goal.

2. Please do not criticize any design publicly, these discussions should only be held in private.

3. Designers may not post any external links to any designs.

4. Please do not ask a contest holder to view your designs or discuss any other designs.

5. Designers can not discuss copied designs on the contest pages and may submit a Logo Dispute to the Admin only.


Our team at as well as our designers will make sure you are 100% satisfied and want you to leave here with a design that you love!
