So last week I held a design contest to see who could come up with a kick-ass logo as well as a catch phrase/slogan that would inspire fear, intimidation, hope, joy, envy, and pretty much every emotion simultaneously at once. In case you missed it, you can check it out HERE. As a quick recap, I want to make up some shirts with logos that are almost as awesome as this:
First off, I want to thank everyone who responded with a suggestion for a slogan, as well as those who submitted a design idea and also those who shared the post with all their social circles. It’s pretty awesome to see how many people got involved in this one, so I am beyond extatic and know that the design and slogan chosen will be the best representation of the readers of this site and their thoughts and beliefs, rather than simply me putting stuff together and hoping it all work out.
So after receiving about 2 dozen entries in the design contest, I narrowed the field down to the two I felt were the absolute best, and wanted to share them with you to get your input.
The first comes from Dylan Coleman with this stunning rendition of the Vetruvian Man.
The second comes from Teiko Reindorf, whose style you might recognize as he is the main illustrator for the Mighty Trainer.
SO HERE’S WHAT I NEED YOU TO DO….
Drop a comment below with the design you would prefer to see. The winner will be the one with the most COMMENTS RECEIVED by Thursday evening at 11:59pm est.
Next comes the slogan contest. I have to admit I was blown away with the response to this one, especially considering the number of likes given to some of the entries. At the end of the day, there were two that really stood out as the far and away favorites, but the numbers were so close I didn’t want to completely abandon one or the other, so I need some more help here, but we’ll get to that in a second.
The first entry comes all the way from the Mediterranean via Fotis Chatznicolaou with his tag line:
BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN NINJAS AND BARBELLS
The next heavily favour contender comes from Melinda Lee with the tag line:
POWERFUL GOALS TO LIFT UP YOUR SPIRITS
So here’s my conundrum. Both were only separated by a mere 7 likes, which is fantastic, but I want to make sure this is as inclusive as possible. So I need you to help me make a decision.
- Fotis’ had the greatest number of likes, so should he get the championship of the world?
- Melinda still had a huge number of likes, so should there be two different slogans?
- Would it be better to have Fotis’ for the guys shirts and Melinda’s for the girls?
- Which one do YOU like better?
If you could drop me a comment below to let me know your thoughts it will help making the decision a lot easier, and also show more of a crowd-think mentality to help get the most popular decision possible.
Lastly, there was the social share contest. This contest was shared over 100 times through various social media outlets, which I’ll be honest was somewhat lower than I thought it would be given how easy the contest was to enter, but I digress.
After putting every share’s name into a Starter Cap and shaking the hell out of it, I pulled out the following two names at random for people who managed to share the contest to all their friends:
Congratulations you two!! Shoot me an email HERE to let me know if you would prefer iTunes or Amazon.com gift cards and I’ll get on it.
For everyone else, please please pretty pretty PLEASE drop a comment below to let me know which design you like the best, and what slogan option you think would be the best choice. I’ll make a final decision on the slogan as of Thursday evening, and will hopefully have a fantastic design finalized by each and every one of you by Friday morning.
