Brand New Logo, New Font!

Today we are excited to announce our new logo and our very first video animation competition! To celebrate the launch of our channel and bring a new dimension to creative production on Steemit, we’ll be hosting an open competition for Steemians to submit intro/outros that we’ll be using throughout February’s DTube videos. The video above goes through the announcement and all the needed details as found below.

Every Steemian is invited to submit an intro/outro animation! The top submissions will receive big Sndbox upvotes and the winner will be featured for each week of February’s Sndbox videos!

Here’s a look at our OLD intro/outro animation!


… now here’s our NEW logo!

We need your help to animate it and re-imagine it in a creative way. Take a look below for the competition outline...

This is a link to my entry for the sndbox dtube competition

I tried using dtube a lot but it kept giving me problems of error while submitting to the blockchain.

I tried it severally with different ways but to no avail so I had to use youtube. I hope this still qualifies as a valid entry .cheers

No worries, and thank you for your submission! We've upvoted this comment instead.

Thanks for this!!! Does it mean it doesnt qualify as an entry?

Minimal Intro Opener

The velocity can be speeded up to 4 sec, no problem with that & the sound I think can be changed too.


You know, the big iron!

Hello. Here is my entry, I hope you like it:

I really liked it too! Good job @wilmarnm

Thanks! Yours is also very good ;)

I hope you are right ;)

Good Job ;)

Here is my silly entry!

Here is the gif version too (

For the Sndbox DTube Competition Entry. I was inspired or perhaps motivated to rip-off the MGM logo!
This of course cannot be used for sndbox unless they want to receive a cease and desist letter for MGM for the use of the lion.
Regardless, the lion symbolises the power of the sndbox! A Steemit Incubator for Creatives, Communities and large African feline beasts of the Panthera leo genus.

Please not that I also broke the rule of a 2-4 second video, this beast needs more time.


Really cool contest, Here is my entry called "Big Bang"

This is my video submission guys. I hope you like it.


Good concept...! :)

Thanks! Yours is also very good

Here is my entry

Hello, this is my entry, i hope someone likes it because i do :)

Here is my entry. The animation is 4 seconds.
The sndbox team supports original and creative works.
So I want to express technology and creativity in this animation.
Please check out the post for my concept.

This is my video


Oooooo this is exciting! I can't wait for the entries coming. I'm loving the new logo btw @sndbox. It looks really modern.

And my Entry:

@sndbox that's good first congrats for your new channel and now I'm going to create animation video for @sndbox for a new logo hope I'll be in top position by the way great @dtube channel to interact with more people

Coool! Let's animate...!

OMG I saw urs!! I love it!

Flyyyy new logo!

I've been in printing for 17 years and there's something about your color palette that I've never seen before. Great color combinations. I like the new and the old logo equally to be honest.

That old animation looked sweet, looking forward to seeing the new one.

Hello this is my entry ! More power to you guys! :)

This a great design and animation.

This one is awesome!

My entry ;


Here is my entry:


Love the new logo congrats on all of your success! Keep it coming! :D

My animation---- Lo--Fi entry

Here is a little footer gif too

Don't mean to be such a balloon pricker but I actually really liked the old logo and prefer it to the new one. It had a really nice colour to it and I like the lower case for design, generally. But then again, this is all entirely personal. I am a bit sad to see that old logo go. It was the thing that really brought me to sndbox.

The loss of the Echer pattern was a mistake. I think that the logo is good but it is less than it was.

Yeah I liked the penrose-ish element it had going on too.

I will say the logo is really litty :)

Sndbox DTube Competition Entry

Thank you for this opportunity and Congratulations to @sndbox for launching their Dtube channel.This is my submission for an intro/outro animation competition by @sndbox.
I have made this intro in Adobe After Effects. I have made 3 samples of your youtube channel but as just one entry is valid, though, i have uploaded this intro. Hope you like this intro.

If you want remaining 2 intros, you can contact me.
Thanks for the competition.

I know it is not my deal, but i guess old one was better:
at first, optically it feels like "O" now is smaller than other letters, unsure if it's good in this case.
Second: now it all looks much more monumental, and old logo with lowercase feels much more democratic which is in my opinion more relevant to sndbox meaning. In other words i see redesign for redesign. Sorry for this share of criticism, anyway sndbox is great

Thanks for the opportunity. Here's my entry.

Good logo.
congratulations on the new logo that has been completed.
May you always succeed.

wow, this is so cool @sndbox, a very good work. Hopefully you will succeed with this work of yours. thank you...


Thanks for the competition @sndbox
I do animations in Adobe After effects.
I have made many logos too.
Would you like to take view of couple of my intros made for my channel.
