VOTE: Logolympiad Event #1

Recommended Posts

Below are the entries for the first event. Seems to be a common theme among them... heh.

As a refresher, the requirements were:

Use any consumer product introduced after 1995, and create a logo and an ad for the product, fitting of the World War II era (1939-1945).

Your ad can be for a magazine, newspaper or billboard. Bonus points for de-evolving the product into something more relevant to the time period.

List your 3 favorites, ranked 1,2,3.

Polls close Sunday at 8 PM EDT.

EDIT: Remember, if you submitted an entry, you can't vote for yourself.

Geez, you folks all have one thing on your minds... :rolleyes:

Great looks all around. Though without further ado..

1st- 4 (Great overall design, and the text itself fits right in with the mores of the period, as well as the "V for Victory" in the logo)

2nd- 9 (eBay as a Pawn shop? I heartily approve!)

3rd- 1 (Ted Williams reference is good, especially his military service, which was not just in World War II, but in Korea also.)

Honourable Mention goes to 7, but the text there wouldn't pass muster then. Way too racy for the times.

1. #4 -- Captures the theme of the period, and the artwork is the most accurate of all of the Viagara ads presented here.

2. #10 -- Seems like an authentic magazine article of the time, both in theme and in style.

3. #6 -- The wit of it and the artwork would be perfect in a 30's issue of the New Yorker. It has that high-brow humor going for it.

On one I didn't know what the product was, a couple submissions took a logo from today and used it, and another didn't have a logo at all.

Anyways, here are my Top Three:

1. Entry 4

(Logo was the best of the submissions. Real classy approach. Lots of text, which was common for wartime ads.)

2. Entry 9

(The eBay script made it feel like classic times. A nice throwback. Great idea, well done.)

3. Entry 1

(Good idea using a celebrity endorsement. I liked the simple and traditional logo, and the sepia colour.)
