Voting in the SGL logo contest

Have you enjoyed the submissions to the SGL logo redesign contest?

We can’t say a big enough thank you to all of the talented designers for sharing their artwork with us and sharing our vision for the Lansing community.

Now, at long last, the time has come to pick a winner.

Voting will take place at SoupGrant – as always, the 3rd Thursday of the month – at Grace Lutheran ELCA at 6.30.

A little info on SoupGrant for the uninitiated…

The night of SoupGrant, two – three people present their community-based ideas to us while we enjoy a delicious soup dinner; after the presentations are through, we vote on our favorite.

We’ve had diverse presentations since we began in the summer of 2013: We’ve raised money for “Little Free Libraries” (which will be coming to fruition this spring), the Bath Township Farmers’ Market, vitamins and supplements for low-income Lansing residents, and, last month, we raised $157 for Mid-Mitten Homemade.

SoupGrant is powered by your donations. Your $5 donation at the door secures you a vote for the community-based project of your choice.

Together, our donations create a micro-grant which is awarded at the end of the night to the project with the most votes!

The money we award will help bring their project one step closer to reality.

Voting on a winner for the #SGL logo makeover

This month we’ll not only vote on a community project, we’ll also vote on our new logo!

If you forget your favorite entry or still haven’t made up your mind, that’s no problem. All 10 will be on display the night of the contest.

Voting will occur over two rounds. In the first round, all 10 of our contestants will compete. Then, our top three entries will go into a deciding round. Whichever comes out with the higher score after the second round will be our winner and take home the $100 prize!

On top of the $100 prize, we’re also adding $50 to the pot for any modifications we might need to request now or in the future, bringing the grand total to $150.

No matter who wins the contest, we know that we’re getting a great design!

Where’s the prize money coming from?

At the same time as we’ve been collecting submissions for our logo makeover, we’ve also had a fundraising campaign going on Indiegogo. We raised $330 to fund the prize money as well as sustain SGL through 2014 as need dictates – printing posters, gas money for volunteers, supplies to make soup, etc. Indiegogo keeps about 10 percent of the money, meaning we ended up with a little under $300.

If you’re on Facebook, please RSVP so that we have a better idea of how many people to expect!

See you on the 20th!

Moriah Joelle

Happy Monday, everyone! No, not so happy? Well, we’d like to brighten your day a little with our first entry in our SGL logo redesign contest!

This submission comes from Moriah Joelle in Metro Detroit.

About the designer: My name is Moriah Joelle and I am a local Graphic Designer with an associates from The Art Institute of Michigan, Novi. With over 5 years experience and multiple clients as well as creating handmade books, puzzles, holiday cards, etc., I am certainly a jack of all trades in the design world.

About the submission: For my logo creation, I wanted to capture the essence of SoupGrant Lansing. Something simple, that has a clear message to help explain the great cause that SoupGrant Lansing is all about. For the poster creation, I wanted to still have the personal touch of the original. Handwritten with graphics to grab the attention of the viewers, so I went with a series of 3 images and nice eye catching fonts.
