A week before I left for New Zealand I received an email requesting a logo. Before you start to think that I'm a big deal for getting unsolicited commissions, I'll tell you that the email was sent out to many design students. The email was very brief and did not give much info. Despite its vagueness I was interested, so I replied with a statement and a PDF of recent logo designs that I have done.
About a week later I got another email with more info (More but not much more). Essentially, The Green Bakery is a business that bakes organic gluten-free vegan bread products and they are holding a contest for best logos. There will be First, second, and third place winners with $350, $100, and $50 prizes listed respectively.
I am currently sketching up designs but I would like to speak with the business directly before I design anything concrete. I'll keep you updated with my process!
