This contest honestly had fairly low participation compared to my previous design contests, however we now have enough superior entries to proceed. I was happy to see some new faces, and am looking forward to handing out prizes to some different Steemian artists (entry time is now closed).
Here are the top four entries I have selected to advance, for consideration to place for a prize. I have not quite decided how many places there will be, but it will be at least two, if not more. Community, please voice your opinions in the comments as to which design you like the best and why, especially if you are a member of @EarthTribe.
@gade4rt's ET Design
This most recent entry made the deadline just in the nick of time. @gade4rt uses petroglyphs to form the letters of Earth Tribe in the design.
"The petroglyphs are figures found in stone made during prehistory in the Neolithic period and are part of many of the natural heritages of the world, many were made with plant pigments, blood or natural paint, often considered these figures as a means of communication and art of the caverns." - @gade4rt
Basing the letters on petroglyphs is a great idea, since out tribe definitely portrays elements of ancient man in our philosophies. I am impressed with the amount of forethought put into this design, and especially with the page separator that was created. The background colors are also based on all the colors of nature.
@crittercrats' ET Design
This entry is fantastic. I love the way the trees are incorporated into an esoteric mask, that has nature spirits and the tribal essence of ancient man written all over it. This is one of the most unique design submission I have seen in any of my design contests. I am also pleased with the amount of effort put into the banners and page separators in addition to the logo itself. Outstanding job @crittercrats!!
@erune's ET Design
I love the overall appeal of this logo, and also how it was originally drawn by hand, which was then morphed into a digital image. The focus of this logo seems to be making the Earth and @EarthTribe one in the same in a combined visual image. What a fantastic concept that has a brilliant and relatable appeal.
@thewalker's ET Design
This entry depicts the Earth as a blossoming flower, which is appropriate for EarthTribe, as our tribe is a blossoming project that is becoming more beautiful by the day. This one is simple yet professional, and can most definitely be used in situations that require a more professional appeal. Thank you for a wonderful entry @thewalker, your banner and page separators are looking good as well.
@edxserverus' ET Design
This is the final design that I would have included in, what would have ended up being a top five, however out of respect to the other contestants that posted their entries in the entry article correctly, I cannot include this as an official entry. I did however want to promote @edxserverus' design talents here however, as his impressive skills have already earned him a first place prize in my @tribesteemup design contest, and a second place prize in my #anarchapulco contest. If you ever need design assistance, he is one of the greats that I would highly recommend.
Thank you for taking the time to view these creative designs for our community. Please feel free to leave a review of what you see above, in the comments below.
