Logo Contest!

The Design Initiative

Blue Moose Pediatrics needs a new logo and we want your help! Obviously, you can’t have a yellow goldfish trying to be a Blue Moose – laws of nature and such. We thought it would be a great idea to ask our patients, their families, and our community for help. We are certain that the creative spark we are after is in you! 

The winner of the logo design contest gets $250, paid in a VISA gift card. Keep the creative fire going and enter as often as you want!

We’ve thrown out a few examples of other Blue Moose to kick off the idea festival. Remember, though, that we need something new and unique – just for us!

What’s in a logo? We want image and text that will represent our clinic for the future. The number one goal is to make kids feel comfortable with coming to see us. Without being too much of a cartoon, we want the logo to signify caring, fun, trust, and well-being. Over time, the logo will be recognized by the community as the place to go for the best pediatric care.

All ages are welcome! Let your kids or siblings enter, too. Crayons and colored pencils are just as powerful as a graphics program. We just might see a drawing we like and have it “professionalized.”

A good test of your design is whether you’d feel happy to wear on your shirt at school. The winner will also get some logo shirts to wear around town!
