ROUND 4 WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON

more people expressed interest in this round than actually participated...stubborn.gif


Ricky:



congrats on taking first place ricky. the judges really liked what you did. although yours was simple, it was the smaller details that won the judges over. it was very clean. everyone liked the coloring. your shape reads as a car easily. i think the best part of your design was your use of differing font sizes to create the curves and shape needed. this refined it in general. the biggest complain was the grungy effect on the edges of the letters.


Zachy:


yours was a close second place. the judges really liked this one too. i really like the font, so much that i want to see more of it. the letters are so overlapped that the nice shape of the font kinda of disappears. i just wish it was less text and more readable. also there are some alignment issues, especially on the left side of the bottle that i would have liked to see straightened up more. however, we think you did pretty good overall with the shape of the bottle. it's hard to work with a curved shape like that. the judges weren't a huge fan of the black text shadow and didn't think it read well as a shadow. everyone really liked the coloring and lighting. you did a really nice job incorporating the lighting into it. i think it really helps it look less flat.


Joseph:


i duno about this man. when i saw it, i really liked it. then i looked closer and realized it wasn't really what i thought it was. where everyone else had to work with aligning their letters to form shapes, you just cut the letters off for the sake of having clean edges. typography is all about alignment and what not, and this kinda just undermines the whole thing. i don't think i can honestly say i think this is typography. if you look at typography like this, it's really about forming the shapes with the letters, not cutting the letters off to form the shape. it's more like you just made a clipping mask. that's the reason this is in 3rd place. that being said, i do think it's nice over all. i think you did pick nice silhouette shapes. the lines are clean. i like the music notes.

Even though it's a bit messy, I quite like Zachy's; it actually looks like the words are wrapping around, creating some kind of depth in the bottle and shot glass.

Go Ricky (again) xD

The only thing that bugs me about his is the 'Crystal' and the 'Jade' next to each other. Cause there's this restaurant that I like to laugh at. It's called Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao xD

I was actually thinking fragrances. I want to see the more professional / utilitarian side of design that I'm sure the people of cB can bring.
