this is my idea to send to the finalists . . .
i don't think anyone would go for it unless there's some sort of angle for them. after all they're students, and probably can't see/justify the difference between typing their logo out in Word and paying for it.
if you're not ok with taking a risk on getting paid, no worries though. i'm sure it could easily turn into a giant pain in the ass. basically i think i'm asking if i can join their team. like a design mercenary.
