Contest Brief

You are designing not a logo, but a symbol.

Here are the requirements:
It must feature the object (see the attachment) either in full or partial form, i.e. the symbol can feature part of the object or the whole object. The symbol can be abstract or straightforward. The symbol can also feature additional objects or elements or none. It should not feature any text however. It can be complicated or simple. Old school or contemporary. You decide, be creative.

It must be black and white.

P.S. 1) you cannot just copy and paste the image of 03.jpg.

2) it must 2 colors max. i.e. you can either use black & white (black background and white symbol) or other variations, if you really feel the need. for example, red & white (red background, white symbol), gray & yellow (gray background and yellow symbol)

3) it should look good on everything... on a wall, or on a box, or on a flag, or even on the roof of a car.

4) use this test: can you make a graffiti stencil out of it?

    Very strange competition. I feel some deception.., as if the customer asked to draw a circle and eventually won a square... Yes, the winning logo well done, but why the customer not explained in the brief that he need a very abstract image of a BIRD???? And for whom was a picture-sample posted? Winner- logo doesn't looks like any part of picture- sample. Customer forced many designers to waste their time cause he can't explain well what he need, so stupid...
