Thanks to everyone who voted for me. You guys are awesome!
Guys.. My Steemit life is so busy right now, I have a to do list up to my arm pits, and I just wish I had more time to devote to all the things I feel passionate about like this coin, I knew this when I submitted my first entry, and knew this more when I saw the other entries.
I have to be honest and say if it wasn't for Discord I wouldn't have known I won or that the design needs a rework - which I actually wholeheartedly agree with.
Here is my original winning entry.
For me Steemit is all about Community. Whether it's the Steemit community as a whole or the many groups/communities that are forming within Steemit, or what Steemit can do for the World Wide community - When I think of Steemit I think of Community in all those terms and more.
I wanted to represent "community" with the fish swimming together and community written in Latin, French, English and Tagalog (Filipino).
I collaborated with @phelimint last week and added a few more elements to the design as per his awesome suggestions and came up with this revised design.
The problem is I am not happy with that whale and another problem, again, is time - which was non existent last weekend, but I woke up early this morning to see if I can change the whale and wouldn't you know..
In this design you can see the growth progression from Minnow to Dolphin to Whale. I also like how the small fish are swimming with the big fish. It's a bit more of an accurate representation of the Steemit Eco-System.
I heard sea/marine life references in Steemit will eventually disappear, I'm not sure if that is true, but I felt if it was (or even if it wasn't), it's important to mark this moment in our Steemit history where we refer to ourselves as Minnows, Dolphins and Whales.
I hope you guys like this last version as much as I do.
