SlugCents Logo Contest

Student Business Services’ new financial literacy program, SlugCents, needs a logo. This logo will be used in branding for the financial literacy program on all web and print media. We are inviting all UCSC students to enter into our logo design contest. Awards will be given to the top three designs.

The logo should be representative of UCSC and it’s values. Incorporating images such as the banana slug or financial elements is suggested but not required. We encourage creativity! Below are some examples of financial wellness logos and UCSC logos for inspiration.
