Design Considerations

The official Delaware APA logo is shown below. The color is Pantone #634 (web #00667F).

The Logo should remain legible when reduced to letterhead size (see logos from previous conferences below) as well as when viewed from a distance such as for posters.

The Logo should be easily adaptable to horizontal or vertical display. Horizontal typically used for web pages, letterhead, etc. Vertical used for conference program (Sample attached). Alternatively, both horizontal and vertical design variations can be submitted.

The B+W image is for potential use in silk-screening carry bags, etc

Logo should relate to conference theme.

Logo does not have to convey all details – it is usually accompanied by text giving other information about the conference.

Design should not depend on color for legibility – B&W version should be equally as legible as color.

Higher quality artwork for the images shown below as well as other related materials are available. Contact the conference manager using the email link above for more information.

Address questions, comments, suggestions etc. to the above email address.

Judging and prizes

Design evaluation by Conference Committee will be based on originality, suitability for intended uses, and relation to conference theme and location.

The winner receives identification in conference program and bragging rights as well as one free 2-day conference registration.
