This is getting fun

  Check today’s rants and raves.  Gotta love the big guys that hide behind computer screens and keyboards.

Participant: Hey, buddy, how come no one has heard **** about your company. You suck and you are never going to sell a single snowboard. And by the way, if you are sooooooo good at making logos, why don’t you make your own instead of being a cheap ****ing ****head and giving people a t-shirt and a couple stickers. Oh and it might be about time you leave your moms house and get a girlfriend, you ****ing loser. I wouldn’t be talking, your logo is an es with two ****ing points on the e, who gives a ****. Seriously, get the **** out of your ***.

ps. i made you a picture and attached it to this email.
        i would have attached the sweet little pic he did up, but it wasn’t worth the effort of downloading it, uploading it to photobucket, and posting it up here.

Have a good one.

        PS – my apologies to the contestant that submitted the logo this little bastard is bashing – don’t worry, your logo is far better than the crap he sent in, and is just pissed that someone called him on the crap he’s passing off as an attempt at design.  Little bastard couldn’t even spell our name correctly.

What’s wrong with kids these days?

               I don’t really want to do this, but check out this correspondence with a Logo Design Contest participant – good times, enjoy.  I may have gone overboard a little with my last reply, but for someone trying to enter into a contest for free gear, I think he deserved it.  His submissions were for another company, apparently previously done, and feature the name listed as his sig. Nothing to do with Eternal. Our contest is for a logo for us, that’d we’d use, not just any random logo for some other company. Anyway, without further ado:

PARTICIPANT: Hello, my name is ****  *******. I am 15 years old and I live in Port Elgin, Ontario, Canada. I have some rough copies of a snowboard logo I made a couple weeks ago. It could be made better if I bought the right design and editing software, but it is not available to me at the moment. I’ve attached all the rough drafts to a word document on this email. Reply if you have a problem viewing them. I hope you like it.

Thanks.

               ETERNAL: Thanks for your contributions.  We’re actually looking for a new logo for Eternal.  Let us know if you come up with a logo for Eternal, along the lines of what we’re currently using.

Thanks,

Eternal

PARTICIPANT: Why would you want one around the lines of that, why not a completely new one, the E i sent you could stand for Enternal anyway, who gives a **** about your other logo, its **** anyway.

             ETERNAL: Wow.  Thanks for the thumbs up.  Unfortunately we will not be able to place you in the contest.

But in all honesty, if you think our current logos are ****, and your “E” is better, look into some design classes.  Really.  A “block” sans-serif “E” with the name inside?  You’re playing around with TTFs, fonts rather than designs.  Does that make sense?

But thank you for your contributions, and good luck in life, I’m sure you’ll go far with your current attitude.

Eternal    <– note it’s Eternal, not ENternal

So the moral of the story is, if you’d like your entries to be submitted into the contest have some respect.
