Design our new Hub logo and win £100 of Amazon vouchers!

Hub@QMU is Queen Margaret University’s new virtual learning environment, which is based on the Blackboard Learn 9.1 platform.

We are looking for a vibrant, modern logo for Hub@QMU as the branding for the new VLE. The logo should try and reflect:
  •  The idea of the virtual learning environment as a hub
  •  QMU as a 21st century institution
The logo will be used as a banner within the Hub, on the Hub log-in screen and any related materials. As it will need to be scaled to various sizes the design should be simple and not contain too much small detail. Also the image should be limited to the QMU’s corporate colour palette of QMU blue, silver and white

Please submit your entries as either .jpg, .gif or .png files to

Size: 850 x 120 pixels

The Hub logo competition is open to matriculated QMU undergraduate and postgraduate students only

The closing date for entries is Friday 2nd November 2012 at 12pm.


All submissions will be reviewed by a panel and the winner will be announced on Friday 9th November.
