More Logos

In an ever expanding search for more opportunities to make dear hubs, Secret Agent Man, has found a website called "Worth 1000" for me. As in "a picture is worth a 1000 words..." This site is great for people who want to brush up on their Photoshop and Illustrator skills. There are photography contests, photo manipulation contests, illustration, and my personal favorite - corporate logo contests. There are even contests for writers! (Hey, Otin, you should check it out!) Some of those are really fun to read.

The majority of the contests award points, which you can use to "buy" credits so you can enter more contests. I haven't looked into them closely enough, so I don't know if you actually win money or just credits. The contests vary from beginner to expert.

The logo contests are sponsored by companies who are looking for logos because they either don't have one or they are re-doing their websites or images. The companies pick a winner and there is a cash "prize" for the logo, which they then own the rights to. The entries are also voted on by members, which may or may not have any bearing on what the company chooses.

It's worth checking out if you are interested in such things. There are literally hundreds of contests all the time.

I have been entering the logo contests, because I love logo design, and because they pay actual money. I haven't won anything yet, but it's good practice at the very least.

So far I have entered for a real estate company called "The Home Spot":

and a science laboratory product called "Titan":

I just entered one for a legal search firm called "Moses Legal Search" but I can't post those until the contest is over. So you'll just have to wait.

Still working on jewelry, too, but you's been a hectic couple of weeks, what with work, Christmas, the in-laws coming, the cat having to go to the "v-e-t", my car breaking down, and...well, you get the picture.


I hope you all are doing well and set to have a Merry Christmas. And here's hoping for a better New Year!

Hugs to all!


  1. You are an amazing artist and should be winning these things!!! Thanks for the website. I'll check it out in my spare time. LOL

    O.K. I have no spare time so maybe I'll just check it out instead of working. That's more like the truth.

  4. I like the real estate logo, especially! I honestly am on my way to look at this site!! Thanks! Merry Christmas, by the way!

  5. I do love your art work and designs. . . you are a talented artist. I'm the lucky one for having one of your pieces hanging in my home. And it will for always because my heart is in that picture!

  6. Your logos are great! Keep working on them.

  7. Ho Ho Ho!! Merry Christmas!! From me and my buddy Otin
