Contest Brief

This is a contest for a logo for one of the largest festivals of Argentine Tango in the U.S., the Albuquerque Tango Festival. You can find us online. The logo should include the words "Albuquerque Tango Festival" and our website, [login to view URL]

The logo should in some way incorporate some aspect of Argentine Tango such as the close embrace that we use when we dance. I have uploaded a number of photos of people dancing Argentine Tango, so you can see what it actually looks like.

What I am going to say no is VERY IMPORTANT! In popular culture there are a number of images, or icons, associated with tango that come from show tango, or ballroom dance. I have included several of these images with the "no" or "banned" symbol. Do not use anything like this or I will quickly reject the submission! These images are cliched and they have absolutely nothing to do with the way we dance authentic Argentine tango at festivals such as ours. Save yourself time. DO NOT submit images of couples doing lounges or dips or similar!

If you want to familiarize yourself with what some of the very top dancers of Argentine tango look like, I would suggest going to YouTube and watching performance by Carlitos Espinoza and Noelia Hurtado. That would be a good way to see what the line, embrace, and posture of this dnce look like.

Ideally the winning logo would be used on our web site and in printed material such as programs. It would read both in color and black and white.

Things to avoid: Red and black color concept. It is very cliched and unoriginal. Men in fedora hats. It is cliched and not original. People dancing ballroom or other dances beside close embrace Argentine Tango. It shows you have not fully read or understood the description.

    There are 16 more hours to go before the end of this contest and unfortunately, while many entries show a high degree of skill from the designer, there are none so far that I would likely actually use. Many are corporate and could be for anything. Tango is a very emotional undertaking and few of the logos reflect this. Many of the entries are very literal, with figures of people dancing. Most of these look silly or cartoon like. I would love to see an elegant, yet minimal, design that is simple yet clearly is about tango.

    Please make sure you read and understand the description. I have received many entries for "Argentine Tango Festival". This is not the name of the event. The correct name is, "Albuquerque Tango Festival". If the logo has the wrong event name I will have to reject it.

      Hi! You have been very clear about the elements that must be on the logo, but im still unsure about the style that you like (minimalist, detailed, elegant, cool, funny, illustration etc etc) Please, send me some references about logos that you like, to match your requierements. Thanks!

    Please read and understand contest description! No show tango poses. No red and black. No men with suits and fedoras. These are all tango cliches that I want to avoid at all costs.
