Dirt Days

Absolutely awesome experience with DesignContest! I had several colleagues reference using this site for logo/branding work and everyone talked about how flawless and easy the process was. They were right! We had nearly 60 different designs submitted for our festival logo from all over the world. Being able to communicate with designers was fantastic and we ended up with a logo we'll use for a very long time. We'll be back on here for the next time we need a logo, without a doubt!

Project description

Dirt Days is an ATV/UTV(Side-By-Side)/Dirtbike Festival that will be held in Williamson, West Virginia on April 26th, 27th, and 28th 2019.  The festival's goal is to attract folks to come ride the Hatfield-McCoy Trail System that is connected to the city of Williamson. The festival will feature a parade, numerous vendors pertaining to the off-road industry, concerts, a mud pit, and other outdoor entertainment items. This is the 1st year of what we hope will become an annual event. 

Williamson is nestled in the heart of the Appalachain Mountains so we feel this logo/design should definitely encapsulate mountains that are somewhat accurate to our area (meaning, we don't have snowy peaks here or massive mountains like the Rockies). Williamson is also home to a large rail road yard and has numerous ties to the Coal Industry (including the world famous "Coal House". Williamson is considered to be "The Heart of the Billion Dollar Coalfield"......something coal/railroad related may be considered a design element too! 

Additionally, the city of Williamson is known for its large floodwall that protects the downtown area. We will attach a photo below of this....we may want to see it incorporated into a design somehow to have a "geographical identifier" in the logo. The digital version of the wall would NOT have to be the same or exact color the wall actually is (we know that brown is not very attractive). 

We are open to any color suggestions for the overall design. 

Lastly, we would likely prefer to leave any date(s) off the logo
so that we could use this futuristically. We would like to have the city/state names included. 

*Update 1/14/19- would like to see various color schemes. Getting a lot of the same thing, which isn’t necessarily bad but we’d like to see variety*

    Also, because the festival included ATV’s
