Weekly Glance of Awesomeness #9 admin | September 26th, 2008

Greetings from crowdSPRING land! Apologies for delivering the “Weekly Glance of Awesomeness” a day late, but you know, pressing matters such as posting pictures of Jerome’s head on Dolly Parton’s body got in the way. Now, let’s get back to business, and check out some pretty great projects that are on our site….

Glance #1: Take “Awesome” To A New Level for IFA
The Award: $300
End Date: September 30th
The Breakdown: What does “IFA” stand for? Frankly, it’s a website called “It’s F$%#ing Awesome.” How could I not include it in our “Weekly Glance of Awesomeness”? So, this snarky site wants you to “share your awesomeness with the world” because you can never have enough bizarre images or video clips on the internet. They need an equally fun yet simple logo, and they’ve turned to our creatives since IFA knows that crowdSPRING encompasses awesomeness. I think I’ve reached my quota on how many times I can use the “A” word in a paragraph, so I won’t repeat myself any longer.

Glance #2: Kids Santa Letters Logo
The Award: $400
End Date: October 1st
The Breakdown: What a really cute concept! Santa Claus House is a service that receives letters from children to Santa Claus and sends back responses, keeping the Christmas spirit alive. I found out Ol’ Saint Nick wasn’t real when I was 5, and it was heartbreaking (it was my own darn fault for being too curious)! But these people help keep the fun alive for little children, all the way from North Pole, Alaska. Santa Claus House are launching a site called KidsSantaLetters.com, where they will post various letters children have written. They need a logo for their website, so help spread the holiday cheer, even if it is only September!

Glance #3: German Student Improv Theater Needs Logo
The Award: $150
End Date: October 7th
The Breakdown: This project comes from the recommendation of crowdSPRING creative fredK. Thanks for the heads up, Fred! HeilixSpassle is a student improv theater that needs a vibrant, fun, and cool logo that will be featured on their website along with their newsletter and ads. Although I have no clue what “Heilix Spassle” means in German (I seriously tried to translate it, which was a total failure), it’d be cool to help a student troupe out!

Glance #4: HearYe.Com Website Design
The Award: $1300
End Date: October 7th
The Breakdown: New classified site HearYe.Com is looking for a simple and clean site design that portrays its listing results in an effective manner. Unlike other listing / classified sites, HearYe’s results aren’t tied to a specific geographical location. And even better, if you dig deep into their creative brief, you’ll see there are not only one, but TWO listings on their functioning site for trilobite fossils. I’m going to be really disappointed if this isn’t real, because I am totally looking for more artifacts to add to my fossil collection. Totally.

There you have it for this week, folks. Tune in next week for more Glances of Awesomeness, and feel free to send me any leads!

From many minds, the perfect design. Post your project today and let the crowd wow you!
