Okay, smart guy. You're TIRED of seeing a daily sample from the extensive Zimmerman Font Collection and can't WAIT for 2005 to end... but THEN what?
It's time for you to start crafting the LOGOS OF THE FUTURE - TODAY!
We'll accept digital submissions (any file size or type we can read and you can email/make available via FTP) OR you can put your chicken scratches on a postcard and mail it to us - our scanner can take care of the rest.
The only ground rule is we'd really like for it to say "The W" somewhere in it. This rule can always be waived for extreme awesomeness, of course. Any logos incorporating our previous styles (parody, "guess the W," ...umm, maybe those were all our styles) are welcome - logos incorporating a completely NEW style are also welcome!
Of course, you will want to consider the size restraints - we have about 750-800 pixels of width to work with but would prefer you don't make them more than 150-200 pixels tall. Also consider that to keep load times down for the non-high-speed-bandwidth-enabled among us, your submission may be downsampled to the point of unintelligibility if you start out with a filesize in the megabytes.
Since I'm not expecting a LOT of submissions, we'll probably go back to updating the logo once a week. If you have a tagline you'd like to have, feel free to suggest it - we'll probably give you any free plug you wish along with the "thanks to" credit as well.
Just remember...if YOU don't do it....well, we have a few THOUSAND more fonts. Nuff said.

It would help me (and maybe some other people too!) to remember if maybe you made a "CALL FOR BOARD LOGOS 2006" an announcement so that I see it and think about it after I click Mark Forum Read in a moment.
