Winners of the Logo Contest

Smashing Magazine Logo Winner

It took us five days in a row to find five best designs for our Smashing Magazine Logo Contest. It was hard and it was a neck-and-neck race for 5 competitors. You can find selected designs in the article Logo Contest - Sketches and Designs.

And now we have the winner.

It was a tough decision to choose 5 best logos from over 190 sketches. Our choice might not look reasonable for all of you, but you have to keep in mind that the logo should fit perfectly to our color scheme and our site layout. We had to create many screenshots with different logo variation and check, whether the look we get is optimal. Not every beautiful logo we liked first passed this test, so only "bulletproof" logos remained.

Logo Contest: Sketches and Designs

Smashing Magazine Logo Content

It was a tough decision to make. Three weeks ago we've announced the Smashing Magazine Logo Contest for the most creative, clean and fresh logo for our site. We've received over 190 Logos from 105 participants, living all around the world. We had a big choice and it wasn't easy to select the winner. After all, the logo shouldn't be just creative or gorgeous - it should fit to our web-site perfectly.

In our decision we've considered many aspects such as typographic clarity, used color schemes, ideas, simplicity and, of course, design. We've taken our time and selected the best works five days in a row. In the end it was a neck-and-neck race for 5 competitors.

We'd like to thank every participant of our contest. We really appreciate your creativity, your work and your time.

We'll announce the winner tomorrow. Today, however, we'd like to present most original and interesting works we've received. Not every sketch is gorgeous, so not every design will be presented.

Thanks, guys. Your participation means a hell of a lot to us.

Smashing Magazine Logo Contest

Few days ago we've re-aligned the Smashing Magazine web-site, changed the theme and - most importantly - re-designed the navigation menu. So far so good. However, in the end we've found ourselves in a dilemma - Smashing Magazine doesn't have a proper logo, which would mark our identity and relate to the subjects we cover on our pages.

In fact, we need a unique, fresh and stylish logo. And since you determine the content of Smashing Magazine, we'd like you to help us in creating it. So, basically, this is what this post is about.
