Final winning version will need to be in eps, gif, jpg and png formats and availible to be registered with the US Trademark office under our name. For the competition we would like to see no more the 4 colors used in a Icon and Name format. brokeboard.com should be lowercase. The colors used should be easily gray scaled for black white print. A Horizontal format usually works better in web applications but feel free to play with other configuations as long as the "block" of space is nicely utilized. A Icon that easily becomes of Cartoon is a plus. Have Fun and please don't be affraid to submit original thought. Please think of "broke" =out of money and "board" as a chalk, stylized, announcement, pin type board.
