Official Entries to the OFW Slogan & Logo Design Competition

by reyna21 on October 19, 2007


After a worldwide search of someone who can design the best OFW Logo and come up with the best OFW Slogan, spanning several continents and countries, I am now very excited to present to you, where somebody will win for up to Php10,000!  – the official entries to our OFW Slogan ang Logo Design Competition!

The winning Slogan gets Php5,000 and the winning Logo gets Php5,000! If you win both the Slogan and the Logo, you get to keep a whopping Php10,000 glittering and twinkling pesoses!

But before anything else, I really appreciate the efforts done by the participants to join this very first contest here. If it’s not for all of you, this would have been a big flop, given the so many scandals that sidelined this contest and the fact that I kinda lost focus with the contest as well. But! There are people who believed in the contest and so, please accept my sincerest thanks. Hopefully, there’d be more participants next time.

I also would like to thank [email protected] who simply prefers to be called as such for contributing Php5,000 to this contest. He is based in Dubai. I also would like to thank Kengkay who is based in Germany, who wanted to contribute truckloads of Euro, but I have to decline until next time na lang! hahah! as well as Bea, who is based in Manila, who’d be helping me choose and decide which one is the fairest of them all.

And so, let me just tell you that the number of entries that we received is unbelievable! It’s actually mind-boggling!

Because there were only 13 (thirteen) entries from only 8 (eight) people.

All entries were received before the Oct 14 deadline (except for the last five entries which I received before midnight EST). Since I don’t expect anyone to send anymore entries, this Contest is considered closed. Now, Please click the links to their posts explaining the meaning of their Logo and Slogan. At the very bottom of this blog entry, I’d appreciate if you would kindly help us decide which would be the winning entry or entries by responding to two (2) of our questions.

1 – Which Slogan do you think best describes an OFW?

2 – Which Logo do you think catches the OFW Spirit?

Entry # 10 – Pinoy World Class


What does the logo and slogan means? Read it here: Pinoy World Class

Entry # 11 – OFW, Nagsasakripisyo para umasenso


What the Logo and the Slogan means:

Nagsasakripisyo Para Umasenso
I chose our kalabaw to symbolize the OFW. Dahil nakita ko ang maraming parallels sa buhay ng isang kalabaw at ng OFW. They both work hard to make the life of those around them  better. They sacrifice a lot, to improve their quality of life.  I tried to make the design as simple yet as strong as possible. I wanted to make this design easy to remember. Like many successful logo designs, the icon can stand by itself but it looks better with the tagline. Although I did not use the elements of our flag completely, I tried to incorporate them in the most subtle but very strong way.

Entry # 12 – OFW, Bagong Bayani nang Lahing Pilipino


What the Logo and the Slogan means:

Bagong Bayani ng Lahing Pilipino
This is a variation of the design using the same kalabaw to symbolize the OFW treated in a different way.  Still used the elements of the Philippine flag to compose the design, all rolled into the symbolism of Kalabaw for the OFW.

Entry # 13 – OFW, Kayod nang kayod para pamilya maitaguyod


What the Logo and Slogan means:

Kayod ng Kayod, Para Pamilya Maitaguyod
This design tried to capture the essence of an OFW in a highly stylized way. With passport in one hand and towing a suitcase on the other hand, I thought these elements best represent the OFW. Without the passport and the suitcase, the OFW can’t go anywhere.  And to represent the face, I used one of the stars from The Philippine flag because to me, wherever the OFW goes, the OFW is the star.



I apologize to Bulakenyo who entered Entries numbers 11, 12 and 13. I received the entry in the nick of the time. I did not want to edit the original POLLS since there are votes inside the polls already and I don’t want to mess up the voting. So, I created a new set of polls just for his entries. Be mindful though that this will have no bearing on being chosen as the winner. This will just assist and/or help us decide. We hope Bulakenyo will understand.

(Note: Final decision will come from the judges: Bea, Kengkay & Reynz. This poll is simply to assist us what you feel about the slogan).


First question: Slogan

Second question: Logo

Meron akong 3 entries na ready ko nang ipadala. Tapos nakita ko sarado na ang contest pala. Di ba Oct. 18 ang last day? Kung di na pwede ito, it’s ok but kung ipwede pang ihabol, they’re ready to be sent.


kutz October 19, 2007 at 3:02 am

Great job Reynz, feel ko yung number 3 as far as the message.
Pero mas maaliwalas sa aking tantalizing eyes ang logo ng number 6 ha…

Sa slogan, wagi ang number 3 as it instills pride sa pagiging OFW nga, saka yung number 7, ang galing ng murat, HAHAHAHA, captured niya ang makabagong wikang Pilipino, andaling ma recall nung phrase! Okay Fine Whatever, Whenever, Wherever!!!


reynz October 19, 2007 at 3:24 am

Logo is “sacred.” It should represent something. Every element, every image, must mean something. Logo should be VERSATILE. For example you resize it to 1×1 inch, the image details must still be recognizable. It should be versatile enough that if you turn it to black and white, it will still have the same impact. Some of the high-impact logos have 2 to 3 symbols.

Microsoft: it’s just a 2-word combination meaning small (micro) and software (soft). Generally, affordable software…software for the masses. Bill Gates aimed to put a computer in every home.

Windows: it’s just plain image of a window…meaning, a window to the world…a window to new opportunities…a window of etc., etc…

Coca-Cola: “Thinking that “the two Cs would look well in advertising,” Dr. Pemberton’s partner and bookkeeper, Frank M. Robinson, suggested the name and penned the now famous trademark “Coca-Cola” in his unique script.”

It’s not just the meaning but how the slogan is presented in an easily-remembered play of words.

see other examples…

With these criteria, I vote for slogan and logo #1.


Ambo October 21, 2007 at 4:50 am
