** About Gap **
Gap offers iconic American style to customers of all ages.

Since 1969, customers have looked to Gap for updated, casual clothing and accessories that help them express their own personal sense of style. Today, Gap continues to be the best destination for wardrobe essentials such as T-shirts, hoodies, great-fitting pants and denim. What began as one brand has grown to include Gap, GapKids, babyGap, GapMaternity and gapbody.

Gap has become a cultural icon by offering clothing and accessories rooted in cool, confident and casual style to customers around the world. The company has over 3400 gap stores worldwide and is a publicly traded and well respected business globally.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

When Gap was founded in 1969, its targeted customers were the younger generation. Hip young customers who appreciated the high quality jeans they produced. As the business idea became successful, Gap expanded its offerings and now targets men, women and children with its wide range of products. See: http://www.gap.com

Requirements

The goal of this project is to design a far more suitable and recognizable logo based on the target market and the companies iconic products. The recently released logo (newlogo.jpg) is extremely bland and has had a horrible backlash from the worlds design community. We feel that our design community can produce a far better logo!

You are free to use your imagination when designing this logo. The only requirement is that your design reflect some aspect of the brands history or target market. A copy of the companies iconic original logo is also included (oldlogo.jpg) - Feel free to use this as inspiration.

Every logo submitted should be:
1. Legible, easy to decipher the letters and the name of the company. Flipped or mirrored lettering goes against this.
2. Effective without color, looks good in black & white
3. Scalable. Works at 1 inch and 100 feet.
4. Versatile & multi-purpose. Has to reproduce well on business cards, pens, letterhead, mugs, tradeshow booths, etc.
5. Simple & memorable. Don't get too complicated.

Come on designers - let’s show them how it’s done!
