Maker Faire Lake County Logo Contest

What image springs to mind when you hear “Lake County”? Do you think of rollercoasters, farm fields or the College of Lake County?  As Maker Faire Lake County approaches, we are looking for a logo that captures the spirit of our county.

Start with a 3 inch circle and select your favorite red and blue media. It could be crayons, colored pencils or graphic design software, your choice! Make sure to include the words “Maker Faire Lake County” somewhere in your design.
