Help us come up with our new look

Beach Metro Community News is getting a facelift, and we want you to be part of the process.

We are looking to our talented readers for ideas for a re-design of our logo and masthead.

From the first issue in 1972 as Ward 9 Community News, to the present logo, at bottom, a timeline of Beach Metro News visual identity.

The current logo was designed and implemented in March 2003. It has served our paper well, but it is time for a fresh look.

We are looking for a design that is Beach themed and reflects the culture and lifestyles of its residents.

Design elements that MUST be present:

  1. Our name: BEACH METRO COMMUNITY NEWS
  2. Tagline: A non-profit community resource since 1972
  3. Coverage area: Serving the Beach, Upper Beach, Beach Hill, Crescent Town, East Danforth, Gerrard India Bazaar, Birch Cliff, and Cliffside

Specifications:

  1. Colour: keep it simple, two or three solid colours work best
  2. Fonts: no more than two fonts should be used. Indicate fonts used
  3. Masthead size: 10 6/16” x 2 ¼” (10.375” x 2.25”)
  4. Resolution: Line art is preferred, as it needs to be sized for larger applications (newspaper boxes, storefront sign, etc.)

You may also use our current logo and create a variation of it with the same elements and/or font, keeping continuity in the design.

Everyone is welcome to submit ideas including students and art classes.

Submit your designs to logodesign@beachmetro.com in PDF format.

DEADLINE: June 18, 2015 at midnight.
