two recent contests that I saw produce good designs include
1) To create an international symbol for the Indian currency (Rupee)
similar to the Dollar Mark $:
This was run in India and saw the creation of a new design, which has
attracted strong opinions, both for and against, from everyone here.
2) Artwork by an 11 year old in India for a Google4Doodle competition
I believe that this got more attention mainly because of the artist's
But it did get strong publicity in India, a very large market for Google.
the logo for the product/brand should come from professional artists after
a detailed discussion and analysis.
Once the logo is in place, and branding and marketing communications begin,
TDF could use a logo competition for publicity and marketing.
This competition could happen in the summer of 2011, when school is out.

of a logo competition, and I also had responses in a couple of
off-list messages, so I guess one could say that I've been answered.
To summarize: "No - in any case, certainly not at this time. Maybe a

within an in-project design team, possibly giving rise to a few
variants to be chosen from."

Anyway, I'll be looking forward to seeing what this all produces. :-)
