Newsom fans choose new logo

Gavin fans have spoken: Gavin Newsom’s name, in front of a rising yellow sun, on a white background.

Give it a few months and that winning logo may well be plastered everywhere you look.

The logo beat out its inverse – a white name over a yellow rising sun on a blue background – and four other multihued logos in a contest to choose the mayor’s emblem for his 2010 run for governor.

Some 8,129 people voted in the contest, according to a blog posted by Theo Yedinsky, the Newsom Campaign’s New Media Director. The favorite received 2,437 votes since Wednesday, when the online logo contest began, though the logo that will be plastered on signs, billboards, TV ads and newsletters across the state in coming months was “never more than a couple of hundred votes in the lead,” he said.

Don’t like it? Don’t’ worry, it sounds like you’ll have a chance to vote on future Newsom campaign decisions. Yedinsky said the contest provided the campaign with “a lot of new ideas and suggestions for design contests. And, now we have an email list of graphic designers who want to help the campaign.”
