Logo Design Guidelines

  1. Please include the name of the organization, “Huntley Hills Neighborhood Association”, in the design.
  2. We would like the logo to be a reflection of our mission statement: The Huntley Hills Neighborhood Association fosters community engagement, beautification and safety in the vibrant Chamblee neighborhood of Huntley Hills.
  3. We would like the design to be able to be reproduced in a single-color or two-color version, which we could use for more cost-effective printed items.
  4. Identifying marks: Designs will be displayed anonymously throughout the competition. Do not include any identifying marks (name, website, etc.) on your design itself.
  5. Artist agreement: You must submit a signed, completed artist agreement when you submit your design. The artist agreement contains your contact information; if we can’t contact you, your design may not be approved for the contest.
  6. File size: Submit your design as a JPEG file, not larger than 500 KB in size and measuring not larger than 3 inches by 3 inches (216 pixels by 216 pixels). If your design is selected as a finalist, you will be asked to submit a scalable vector graphic in EPS format.
  7. File name: Save your design file with your full name or your company name as the file name. If you submit more than one design, number them accordingly (i.e. Jane Doe 1, Jane Doe 2). Designs will be displayed anonymously during online voting and judging panel review.
  8. Email your design to logo@huntleyhills.net. You’ll receive an email from us when your design has been approved to be part of the contest. If you do not receive an email within three business days of submitting your design, please contact us directly via email.
