Weekly Glance of Awesomeness #10 admin | October 3rd, 2008

Well, well. Here we are. And by here, I mean the Weekly Glance of Awesomeness for all my friends in crowdSPRING’s creative microcosm. So, here are some specific projects I’ve had my eye on for you all to look at as well!

Glance #1: Logo for Photography Site Dizzysaw
The Award: $175
End Date: October 6th
The Breakdown: As a photography enthusiast, my overly excitable mind went into overdrive when I saw the description “Digital Photography Deathmatch.” Although Dizzysaw is neither as bloody nor gory as it may sound, the website’s concept is still pretty cool. The mission? “Build a community where photographers compete amongst each other for a variety of lighthearted honors and badges, while gaining insight and constructive criticism from more seasoned photographers.” They’re looking to crowdSPRING’s fantastic creatives for a logo design. They say “iconic” and “minimalist.” I say, it’s done!

Glance #2: Pinky Toes Logo
The Award: $250
End Date: October 6th
The Breakdown: I picked this project solely (check out the slight pun) because I think this is an interesting design challenge: Design a high end logo for a product that wards away corns, bunions and blisters on women’s pinky toes. It’s no easy feat (pun #2!) to visually communicate the purpose of the product while remaining high-end, but I know our creatives are up for the challenge. I’m sorry for the complete corniness (oh no, I did it again!) of this project description. I blame the cold medicine.

Glance #3: Plummelo Website
The Award: $700
End Date: October 12th
The Breakdown: Plummelo came to us to find the right logo for their new recipe-oriented website. This online recipe box is trying to generate more traffic, and they loved you all so much that they’ve returned to crowdSPRING to do a web design redesign of their site! Check out the giant grapefruit, and help them create a site that visually leaves people with that refreshing citrus feeling that makes them want to return!

Glance #4: Australian Climate Change Non-Profit Logo
The Award: $300
End Date: October 13th
The Breakdown: The crowdSPRING crew is all about supporting non-profit organizations. If you haven’t checked out our Forums recently, please take the time to read this thread regarding a non-profit initiative we are discussing. In the meantime, a new non-profit organization seeking to raise awareness about climate change in Australia needs a logo that is strong and a bit “in yo’ face.” Their main goal is to reduce emissions in Australia 90% by 2050. Go team green!
