We’d like to thank once again all participants of our “makeover” contest. With considering the votes of our blog visitors the jury came to the following decision:
1st place: Chris Connolly, Ireland
Entry without attached comment.
According to our specifications this is a design with modern lettering, with the jury liked most because of its dynamic impact.
2nd place: Roberto Ottaviano, Italy
Again an entry without attached comment.
Even if we didn’t ask for a makeover of the logo itself, it was the idea and overall impression which could convince the jury.
3rd place: Mario Bukowski, Marios Designzimmer, Deutschland
Comment attached: “I didn’t want to change the main features of the logo (value of brand recognition), therefore I only chose a different, more modern font (Audimat), which lets the lettering appear mor zeitgeisty than the Minion. Apart from that I renounced the stylized “coffee cup vapor billow”, as this is inappropriate to represent a printing company. Given this the outcome was a new logo, which however didn’t allow to be captured.” (editor’s note: well, actually this isn’t meant to be a “coffee billow”, but the heat which rises from a business card which is coming out of the printing-press )
Also in this case the jury awarded the overall idea business cards.
Many thanks to all participants and congratulations to the winners!
