Wow, what a week. We thought we were flooded in, and we were totally chuffed with the 166 submissions from week 1. You absolutely smashed it with 271 this week!!!!!!!!
That in itself is great news, but even better was the added difficulty we had in picking the shortlist this week. There was a noticeable rise in the overall standard, and relevance to brief (which we’re currently tweaking, the new English version is up with other languages to come in the next few days).
So after long discussion, and internal voting amongst the core OLP, Marketing, Graphics and Brand & Communications teams we’ve settled on these 10:
(from left to right)
Label 02 Update by Whyme - We really liked this last week, whyme made a slight update. We prefer this version and with the additional usage images we have a much clearer idea that this can work, and that its totally awesome! So its back to the shortlist again for the second time running…
Spreadlove by Kimlarsen (again!) - Two in a week, congrats Kimlarsen! Innovative combination of a shirt and a heart. Really emphasizes the enjoyment people get from their creations, making something you love.
Pen Shirt by Theoze - Actually although popular, this didn’t get the kind of glowing response internal as you guys gave it. We still have some concerns that it works better as an icon, than a logo. But this got the big community vote, and support from a number of employees so we’re happy it made the list.
Spreadshirt TM by Family - Unusual and distinctive. Our first circular logo to make the shortlists. Memorable design, nice use of TM in the shirt.
Tagshirt V3 by Dazzler - Another we wanted to see more of last week. This new version is clean, crisp, we love the tag added to the P and in general we’re rocked by how simple yet memorable and brief ticking this design is.
And those that came close to making the shortlist this week:
The Butterfly Label by Nieke - Original and striking. But perhaps overcomplicated and the butterfly symbol not quite relevant enough. So congrats to Nieke the creator of our Grand Finalist design Label Range, this one is getting there but isn’t quite there yet.
Drop by Japasa - Great design, but the common response along the lines of “Drop could have been my favourite but in my mind I just cannot connect the image of a paint can with t-shirt printing.” - Lets see what week 3 holds for this design.
Congrats everyone who made it, keep trying those that didn’t. Its been a great week, thanks for all your entries and comments!
