Notion Ink holds logo design contest: winner gets $1000 and Adam tablet

The maker of everyone’s favorite Android vaporware, the Adam, is holding a logo contest. Notion Ink would like you to design their company logo (you know, stuff that usually costs tens of thousands of dollars) for a chance to win $1,000 and “the first” Adam tablet, whenever it comes.

Participants should send their entries in to an email address, specified in Notion Ink’s blog, by October 22nd. After that, the top 10 will be chosen by the company and put into a public poll everyone will have a chance to vote in.

Here are some examples shown on the blog that are good but have “something missing:”

I know professional designers are not too fond of spec work, so I imagine most submissions will be by up-and-comers and amateurs that are fans of the company’s mythical tablet. But with so many design tools made more accessible than ever, the top 10 are bound to be high-quality works.

As for the tablet itself, we’re still eagerly waiting for some more recent hands-on impressions and real-world demonstrations to show up, and are cautiously optimistic until that happens.
