Deep Ellum Branding Contest

Deep Ellum Sign by Terry ShuckWe love our little home here in Deep Ellum. It's a neighborhood that's definitely seen its ups and downs. Currently, it's in an upswing, and because of that, the Deep Ellum Community Association (DECA)--in partnership with the Deep Ellum Foundation (DEF)--is having a “‘Deep Ellum Texas’ Branding Contest." Create the winning logo and you'll be awarded $1500. Not too shabby, eh? More info:

The winning logo for Deep Ellum Texas will be featured on [marketing materials] plus other traditional and non-traditional medias. Judging will be by a panel composed of creative design professionals along with representatives of DECA and DEF.
