MCBP Logo Contest!

The official flag of Detroit pictured above includes two mottos: Speramus Meliora (We hope for better* things) and Resurget Cineribus (It will rise from the ashes.**)

Now it's time to create a logo for Motor City Burning Press. While staff members can come up with their own designs, we'd also like to make this a contest for anyone else interested in participating.

What to do: Create a logo that fits our Detroit-themed premise and name. Email digital image to by 7:30 p.m. Detroit time, June 21, 2009.

If we pick your logo and you give us the rights to adopt it, we will send you $50 (or its equivalent in non-US funds for international contestants). We will make our decision between June 21 and July 4, 2009 and post the results on this blog.

Staff members are encouraged to design a logo, but are ineligible for winning the $50 prize.

*Or "sweeter things," like honey. **Or "resurrecting from the ashes," or embers.


  1. you should be inundated, considering the talent floating around the blog-o-sphere...

  2. Cool, although my artistic talent is zero so I'll watch for more talented folks to raise the bar.

  3. Hmmm. I may enter this if I can brainstorm a good idea.
