Make ShortList Your Own


This week's ShortList is our 297th issue. Those of you with a flair for basic maths will have deduced from this that we are just three weeks away from our 300th issue, which hits the streets on 14 November.

As part of this, we’re asking some of the planet’s finest creatives to re-design our logo, and the good news is that we want your submissions, too.

Simply reinterpret the ShortList logo you see here in any way you see fit – change the font, illustrate it, make it out of a certain material, create it out of those party balloons, whatever your muse tells you – and send the resulting PDF to shortlist300@shortlist.com by 1 November at the latest. Get going.
