We put together this Design Brief (borrowing from the SotM) that outlines what we are looking for in a logo. Entrants could be an individual or a team of people, even a design company. By submitting a logo you will be assigning your copyright to OSMBDF so that it can be used across different mediums. Participants are requested to submit their logos through a certain link that has been indicated in this page. No entries will be considered as eligible after the submission date and time.
