Only one week to the LAICDG logo competition deadline (04 December, 12am). We’ve already received 4 great submissions, but we want to see dozens more! 🙂
The logos will be scrutinised and the best one will be selected in Kennedy’s Bar on Tuesday 04th December from 6:00pm onwards. [check directions]
The prize for the best entry is a bundle of gorgeous art books, kindly donated from the duplicates heap of a very generous library.
This is a great opportunity to celebrate the recent establishment of the LAICDG, to meet new and old faces and to share ideas on our directions from 2013 on!
We’re looking forward to see you all on the night and …keep those logos flowing to our email address laicareerdevelopment(at)gmail(dot)com !
And….as we were asked about it, you don’t need to be a LAI member to take part in the competition. We wouldn’t want to exclude all those creatives, designers, cartoonists and artists out there! 😉
[Big thanks to @mishdalton and @ArchEteq for organising this]
We need a logo and therefore we need you!
As we have no money to hire a creative designer to whip up a stylish logo for us, we thought ‘how about the creative brains of all those info pros out there?’
So, the competition is now open to design a nice logo for the LAICDG! There will be a prize for the best one (though we don’t know what it will be yet!) in addition to the eternal glory of being the designer of the LAICDG logo, obviously.
The logos will be scrutinised by our specially selected jury and the winner will be announced at our Christmas networking event at beginning of December (date and venue tbc).
There are only two rules to this:
1. Logo has to be born digital – no pencil and paper please.
2. Deadline for submission: 04 December 2012
(3.) Oh…and nothing that would require a PG rating please! 🙂
Send your logo idea(s) to our email laicareerdevelopment(at)gmail(dot)com and GOOD LUCK!
We’re pleased to annouce to the world that the Library Association of Ireland has its very own dedicated Career Development Group!
We come from a year of proposals and meetings, and finally on the 23rd of October 2012 the LAI hosted an inaugural meeting of the brand new (and shiny) LAICDG.
A strong committee of seven was elected on the day, and since then we’ve been very busy with the set up of the group…lots of documents, emails and more documents. But we’re getting there 🙂
There will be more details about the group soon on the LAI website and we incourage all of you to tick the box next to LAICDG next time you renew your LAI membership.
We’re planning to have great events, formal and informal, and our very first Librarycamp in Ireland – see all about the UK Library Camp if you’re not sure what we’re talking about.
For now, we’re on Twitter @LAICDGroup (soon on facebook too)…and rumors have it that there’s going to be a Logo Competition too!
So stay tuned 🙂
