DESIGN BIDDULPH MUSEUM A LOGO

Biddulph Museum would like a new logo. Can you design a logo for the museum? We would like it to include the image of a wolf and the words Biddulph Museum. It needs to be simple rather than complex and suitable for reproduction in various sizes in order to transfer the design onto stationery and souvenirs. If you think you have the perfect solution to our problem then please send us your design by post or e-mail. robertworrall@aol.com Along with the following: Name: ................................................................................................. Age: ....................... Contact Info: ............................................ The winning design will be used on all our stationery, souvenirs, posters and our website. It will also be proudly displayed in our museum art collection along with the artist’s details, so your original artwork would be needed as well. Please note the image of the wolf is to go with our understanding of the name Biddulph (see article). Closing Date: 1st March, 2012.
