Added May 26: More information regarding Leafaholic since there have been some questions:

Leafaholic will be a network of websites which will include College Being among other similar sites. All the websites will feature regularly-released (hopefully helpful) articles and videos on different categories for a wide-range of audiences. We will want the sites to be helpful but fun much like College Being. The logo can reflect this.

27 Thoughts on “Win a Free Version of Adobe CS 5.5 (Normally $2,599)”

  1. Just wondering what is Leafaholic? What does this company do? and who is your target audience? I think this information would help us have a better idea on what you’re looking for.

  2. @Cookie:

    Leafaholic will feature a lot of different categories and audiences. The uniting factor is that all the websites will have a fun atmosphere! But the logo should still look professional/corporate if it can. We are really open to anything and that’s why we haven’t said too much.

    Feel free to add a comment along with your entry to convince us why your logo is the best!

  3. Adobe creative suite 5.5 is the latest version of software.But i think it is too costly and so there should be less price version
