ORIGINAL ARTWORK ONLY!
Keep the following elements in mind as inspiration for your logo and art:
Artwork will need to be easily reproduced for online digital promotion and for printing and branding.
Design your logo element in an way that it can be branded easily.
Upload your entry is a format for easy previewing. If your design wins we will request the open editable files.

The brief is a guide but open to your interpretation
The brief is purposely open - but to help a little we are looking for a visual design that can sum up Freedom and Creativity. A saying or word, a logo, a design that will inspire others when they see it. Creativity is limitless and open to possibility, let your creativity flow.
It will be used to excite the creatives out there to leap their boundaries, stretch their limits to explore, create, design and discover what it means to truly be creative.
Well done everyone!

Freedom of expression is very important.
I have a free voice. I have a free mind. I have freedom of expression.
Freedom is the only law which genius knows.
Freedom has never been free.
This world is but a canvas to our imagination.
Creativity is not talent but attitude.
The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
Technology, like art, is a soaring exercise of the human imagination.
Art is to be free. Design is to fix.
I like to learn. That's an art and a science.
Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.
Life without liberty is like a body without spirit.
Art is a lie that makes us realise truth
Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better
Creativity flows when curiosity is stoked.
The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves.
Freedom is living without chains.
Freedom is from within.
I'll tell you what freedom is to me: no fear. I mean really, no fear!
People unfit for freedom — who cannot do much with it — are hungry for power. The desire for freedom says, ‘leave me alone and I shall grow, learn, and realise my capacities.’
