The second annual Rising Star international graphic design contest is over and we have a winner who is about to fly to London and join Techstars!
With so many entries from all around the world, public voting saw 20 competitors go into the 2nd round. The "adrenalin round" contestants had only one week to submit on time and on brief. Their work is below but the winner is...
Probably the best understanding of the brief combined with excellent visual delivery. Very catchy and funny logo, great work with colors. The brand definitely works as a whole system as Ondřej shows on provided touchpoints. Extra points for the video presentation!
All of the competitors did amazing work – and we’re truly delighted with the results. The Judging team would also like to recognize 3 works that they agreed stand out for different reasons. In no particular order here are 3 standouts followed by all the contestants.
Interesting graphic, unexpected, creepy in a good way. Very good understanding of the brief.
Probably the only person to offer something completely different and unexpected, with a strong concept. Very good understanding of the brief, however the Judges did not consider that the meerkat would work on it's own. Still a great job, James!
We loved the colors and the icon. The very thorough process was highly marked!
