Contest Brief

I will announce the winner of the contest over the next few days.


UPDATE 4 April 2017:

Sealed this contest given many requests.



UPDATE 2 April 2017:

Please read this description carefully.

We are a social club of 'guardians' looking for a superb and high quality graphic element (used for logo, letter head, etc) symbolising a 'guardian'.

Requirements:
a) SILHOUETTE/SKETCH of a medieval knight in full armour (with or without horse), OR a roman warlord (with or without chariot), OR the Egyptian god Anubis or possibly other mystical creatures representing a GUARDIAN
b) carefully BALANCE elegance with dynamism and power, conservatism with modernism, simplicity with detail. Embed a touch of mystery.
c) MAXIMALLY 2-3 colours, 2 dimensional (i.e. no gradient and such 3D effects), adequate for both white or black backgrounds
d) NO text elements, typeface or names
e) should not look tacky!
f) professional QUALITY, and in vectorized format (e.g. can scale without loss of quality)
g) NO religious symbols of any kind
h) NO copyright infringement or copy/paste from elsewhere
i) LESS IS MORE. ALWAYS.
j) SIMPLICITY reveals true creativity - it also helps the logo to become memorable and timeless

    As promised, some context why this specific design won:

      1. All the requirements outlined in the contest description have been met and carefully adhered to
      2. The design exquisitely balances the conditions under b). The horse is foaming and all its details express the dynamism and power, from the curled mane to the tail, the eye’s expression and the angle of the bent of knees. This is all captured in only simple black and white, which is remarkable. The rider is taming the horse to align the ‘combined battle strength’ (expressed with the alignment of the eyes of both knight and horse), but is doing so only with effort (given his posture bent forward and the angle of the spear). The shield is simply illustrated with a white line, and the spear is a simple black line at the perfectly balanced angle, and as such the weapons are not distracting from the knight and the horse. To make this design look so well, I assume a lot of work, experience and taste had to be put in.

      3. More from a macro perspective, the design is compact and well balanced, the minimalist nature allows it to withstand time as well.
      4. From a very practical perspective, the design can stand alone without text, even without the grey shadow. I can easily invert and print it in any other color or surface.

    Some contestants claim the winning design is not original. Although skepticism is important in such a contest, I urge people to keep it professional and do so only with tangible evidence and proof, here in the public clarification board for us all to see. Thanks!

      Personal insults are totally inappropriate, unprofessional and unnecessary.

    I will however start to reject submissions which don't follow the original requirements (e.g. have text, or feature religious symbols, or use existing designs) or which fall very much behind the leading submissions. Apologies if I can't provide an explicit comment but reading the original requirements should make it clear.
