LimeGreen’s Second Annual Branding Brawl Contest Pairs Aspiring Creatives With Entrepreneurs

  • July 29, 2013

CHICAGO, July 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Calling all aspiring graphic designers!  Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to give entrepreneurs a voice to stand out in a cluttered marketplace.

LimeGreen, a marketing and advertising firm based in Chicago, is now accepting submissions for their annual Branding Brawl contest. This contest was created to connect up-and-coming creative talent with worthwhile start-up companies that can benefit most from their services.

Each year, LimeGreen chooses a start-up company to feature in its signature design contest. Global Adrenaline, a premier travel company that caters to the luxury group travel set, is this year’s showcased start-up company.

Participants in the contest will be charged with creating a fresh take on Global Adrenaline’s current marketing and sales materials. Global Adrenaline caters to six unique client types with distinct personalities. Entrants are tasked with designing specialized but streamlined marketing materials for each client type by highlighting destinations and services that would most appeal to them.

“By connecting young creative talent with aggressive entrepreneurs, you produce a creative energy that is addictive and fruitful for everyone involved,” said Michon Ellis, CEO of LimeGreen and the brainchild behind Branding Brawl. “It is also a way for LimeGreen to reach talented creative rock stars of tomorrow while simultaneously bolstering the entrepreneur community.”

Submissions will be uploaded to LimeGreen’s social media networks for voting of favorites from the public. The top three will be chosen by the number of likes that each entry receives. After the top three are chosen, a panel of elite judges from the design and professional community will decide who receives the first, second and third place prizes.

The first place winner receives $1,000. The second place finisher will receive $500 and third place will receive $250. The deadline for submissions is August 16, 2013. For more information and contest rules, email brandingbrawl@limegreen.net or visit www.limegreen.net.
