2014 Logo Contest Now Open!

We are pleased to announce that the Mysterium 2014 logo contest is now open for submissions! Next year marks the 15th anniversary of our little convention, and our Age theme will be Riven (since 15 is divisible by 5, and Spokane is high desert country, you see ;)). While it isn’t a requirement, we would absolutely love to see designs that both incorporate Riven and commemorate our anniversary.

Submissions must be received by November 30th, 2013. You can submit either a front design, a back design, or both. More information about the design requirements, as well as where to send you entries, can be found on the contest details page.

We look forward to seeing your artwork!

The Falling Man Logo – .jpg, .eps, .tif, and .svg – http://www.mysterium.net/logo/


The shirt front logo should be a simple, easily recognized design. It must incorporate the falling man. It will be used on the front of the Mysterium t-shirt and on other convention memorabilia.

Grayscale – keep in mind that this will be black pigment on a white background, and thus we cannot guarantee the accuracy of halftone reproduction.
Must use Falling Man logo
May contain Location and Date
May contain word “Mysterium”
Print size should be no less than 8” x 8”

The FRONT LOGO may alternately be substituted with a maximum 3” x 3” POCKET LOGO with the same requirements listed above.


The shirt back logo is more detailed than the front logo, and often visually represents the location Mysterium is being held.

Up to four colors – these may contain halftones/shading, but no color blending/gradients
May use Falling Man logo
May contain Location and Date
May contain word “Mysterium”
Print size no less than 9” x 12”

Please direct all submissions, concerns or questions to logo@mysterium.net and the committee will respond promptly.
