A logo is required for the branch to use to celebrate its 50th anniversary! The logo will be used in place of the normal SDR logo on all publicity and printed materials throughout 2019.
Several people around the railway have put their thinking caps on to see what they can come up with as a design, and as so many people are now interested, we thought it would be a good idea to open it to everyone!
This is a really very rare opportunity to make your mark on a significant heritage railway anniversary year – a year which, from the suggestions received so far into what a celebration gala should contain, looks like it will be one of the biggest SDR events ever!
Designs submitted can make use of the SDR splasher logo or the SDR shirtbutton roundel if desired. The logo should ideally make the ’50’ or ‘fiftieth’ prominent.
Other symbols etc representing the branch or the SDR are also welcome.
The logo needs to be clear, easy-to-recognise, and present a positive image of the SDR.
Expensive clever computer software is not required, as the chosen logo will be sent to a design company to be professionally made up in any case. Submissions of design concepts are welcome, or paper hand-drawn designs, or computer designs too.
There is no limit to the number of designs a person may submit, and this is open to everyone, both internally and externally to the SDR.
If you would like to submit one or more designs, please send these to Danny Scroggins by the end of March. The logo design chosen will be announced later in the year.
Small print: Please note that, by submitting a design, you are donating that design, including copyright, to the SDRT. The SDR may use it in any way, without limitation on use or time. The author of the logo will be acknowledged when the chosen design is announced, but not credited on each specific use of it.
