It wasn’t too long ago that I asked the Corn Heads to suggest areas of COTJ that they think could improve. Something that many readers brought up was COTJ’s header/logo. While many folks love seeing yours truly in the middle of a corn field, quite a few felt that a better logo and header design could be created. For a while, I contemplated making a change to the header design, and brain battled often. Well, that battle is over, and I can now finally introduce you to the new Logo and Mascot of COTJ.
As you can tell, this logo/header isn’t up yet officially. I wanted to announce it, and let it sink in a bit before officially posting. While I love this new logo, what I love most about it is that it gives COTJ a new face, and a chance for all of you to be involved.
The COTJ Mascot Naming Contest!
Our Corn on the Cob character needs a name, and I want you to help me pick one! To enter the contest, simply enter ONE comment with your suggestion for his name. On Tuesday of next week, I’ll pick the 3, 5, or 7 that I like best, and put them into a poll on COTJ on Tuesday or Wednesday. Voting will run until Sunday, September 19. The person who suggested the winning name will be awarded a $50 prize. The winner, and winning name will be announced on Monday, September 20.
Oh, and the $50 prize will be in the form of a gift card. Just tell me where you’d like me to go and I’ll make it happen. I strongly suggest Best Buy, or Starbucks, orrrrr something.
So, get started sending in your submissions, and please let me know what you think of the new logo, header, and mascot of Corn on the Job!
