What text should be included in the main part of the logo?
Magic on the Track
What type of product or service do you offer?
This annual event is hosted by the Florida Sunshine Chapter of the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA). It is a competition among garbage truck drivers from across the state. The winners move on to a national competition. The main part of the event is an extensive obstacle course - drivers maneuver garbage trucks through a track with real life challenges (backing up, going through tight spaces, etc).
How long have you been in business?
The Florida chapter was started in 1978.
What do you hope to accomplish with your new identity?
The association decided on the theme "Magic on the Track" because the event will be held in Kissimmee, Florida, right around the corner from Disney World. Two of the elements they would like to see incorporated into the logo are a garbage truck and an element of magic (ie. stars). One idea was a truck driving down the road with stars coming from under the tires. With that said, the competitors are mostly men, so the logo needs to be masculine.
What are your long term goals?
The logo will be used on the association website and in emails to help promote and get people excited about the event. It will also be printed on signs, banners, t-shirts and in the event program.
When is the deadline for final entries before choosing a designer?
Wednesday, December 28

State a single-minded word or phrase that will appropriately describe your company:
For this specific event, the participants can only be described as "competitive" ... it's a big deal for them!
Garbage trucks in competition include rear loader, front loader and side loader. There are others, but these are the most popular and recognizable. If you're not familiar with the trucks, the sites below may help. With that said, the illustration does not have to be detailed/technical. You can use your local garbage truck for inspiration.
