The VCCA held an internal competition (between association members) to design their 25th anniversary logo to be used on their celebration materials throughout the year.
My submission was chosen as the winning entry and appeared on the VCCA’s promotional materials throughout the year.
There was a prize for winning, but I honestly cannot remember what it was ($50 or $100 sounds about right). While I normal oppose logo design contest as I feel they dilute the industry and cheapen services of qualified professionals, this contest was different in that it was only open to a handful of members.
I still enjoy how the “25th” sits playfully on top of the former VCCA logo. It is balanced and well positioned. If I could re-tool the logo, I would remove the banner from the bottom and re-style the “anniversary” text.
