CONTEST: Inside Music Needs A Logo!

Hey there, everyone. We hope by now you have noticed the return of our podcast, INSIDE MUSIC, following its unexpected three week absence. We are thrilled to have the show back, and we could not be happier with the response we have received from all of you about the recent episodes. After just over twenty-four hours of material I think the show has found its groove, but in order to take things to the next level WE NEED YOUR HELP.

You probably noticed this already, but INSIDE MUSIC does not have a logo. Our iTunes listing features the Haulix logo, which is nice, but we cannot help feeling that marketing the show and generally getting more attention for our content requires us to have a proper logo. You know, something with our name, and probably an image that references music in one way or another. We thought about hiring someone to do this for us, but thought it might be more fun for everyone if we opened the floor to submissions from the public.


In addition to having your artwork used for every future episode of INSIDE MUSIC, along with being credited for the design here on the Haulix Blog, the winning artist will also receive a vinyl care package courtesy of Antique Records. This package will include three full-length 12″ albums, 2 7″ EPs, and at least three cassettes. More information on Antique Records and their awesome roster of talent can be found here.


All submissions must measure AT LEAST 1000×1000 pixels. The logo for INSIDE MUSIC can be designed however you desire, but we must ask that everyone include the name of the show, as well as the phrase ‘presented by HAULIX.’ Also, no copyrighted images may be used.

All entries should be sent to:

When submitting your art, please use the subject ‘INSIDE MUSIC CONTEST.’


All entries must be received by Friday, April 10 at 11:59 PM (EST). There is no limit to the number of submissions that an individual can enter, but we do ask that you keep the amount of individual emails to minimum.
