Competition Winners. Find out who won???

.
Following weeks of deliberation and hundreds of hours sifting through piles of entries – the results are finally in for the first uksignboards.com design competition.

OK - so it didn’t really take weeks or even hundreds of hours – but we did have a lots of entries and, more importantly, WE HAVE A WINNER!!!

Well I know you’re all frantic to know who it was – so without any further ado…[fanfare]…

The winner of the UKSB 2003 logo design award sponsored by MACtac is:
Lee & Jenny Attewell of “Graffic Jam from Western Australia!

Unfortunately, Jenny and Lee can’t be with us tonight – so we sent our roving reporter out to see them and snap a piccie of the happy couple. Both proudly sporting their winners UKSB t-shirts - Jenny proudly holds the personalised brass engraved winners plaque and Lee – well, Lee just seems happy to see Jenny! (or is that a roll of vinyl he’s holding!)…
(Leeroy & Jenny recieved 100 metres of MACtac 9800 vinyl from our competition sponsors)

Image

Leeroy sent this message for all the folks on the UKSignBoards:
“It came as quite a bit of a surprise to find out we had won...Jenny and I would like to thank everyone involved with this competition. Taking part in this was great fun. It was difficult not being given a brief by the customer and having to do it ‘on spec’. A great idea!..."

The judges were unanimous in the opinion that Jenny and Lee's design stood out amongst the dozens of others and was a deserved winner - and here it is:

Image


mike comments: “…this design above all others has all the qualities of a classic logo. It is deceptively simple yet elegant in its styling. Consisting of just two colours over a white base, and employing simple geometric shapes to great effect, it has the ability to convey its message quickly and easily, even at a distance. As a company logo – its regular proportions and simple construction means not only can it be easily adapted to fit different shaped vehicle and sign panels but also various disciplines and materials such as cut vinyl, digital, signwriting, embroidery and printing, a quality that many entries overlooked…”




We would also like to commend three other designs in particular. These ‘runners-up’ each possessed qualities that the judges felt merited a placing… Each runner receives a uksignboards.com t-shirt.
They are as follows:

FIRST RUNNER-UP…Adrian Howard of Signrite

Image

Adrians design was found to most distinctive by virtue of its unusual profile and colour conbination. This is something that was remarked upon throughout the judging and was the deciding factor in awarding it ‘first runner-up’. Unique shapes and colour combinations are highly prized in logo design. Even at great distances, such logos become instantly recognisable and therefore of great value to the company using them.




SECOND RUNNER-UP…Andie Lines of Andie lines graphic arts

Andies design was professional, well executed and was noted for its use of typestyle and semi-abstract, modernistic styling.

Image




AND THE THIRD RUNNER-UP…Phill Fenton of The Right Signs

In the last eighteen months many signmakers, some new to the trade and some more experienced, have found their way to the UKSignBoards and have become an integral part of this on-line community. Signmakers like Tim Gittoes from Wales, Eddie Cotter from Ireland and Martin Pearson from Cowdenbeath, to name a few, have all gone from strength to strength during the time we've known them here on the site. We’ve decided to take this opportunity to make, what we know will be, a popular decision in awarding the position of third runner-up to another well-known signmaker, namely Phill Fenton of The Right Signs. Most of you will know Phill as a long standing member and contributor to not only the UKSignBoards but to the on-line fraternity in general. Phill, together with his wife Alison, has been in the trade for several years and is another who has continued to develop his design and composition skills - both learning from and sharing with everyone else here. To this end we would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge his ongoing contribution and personal achievements in signwork.

Image





I personally would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took part, and for their hours of work in making this both an enjoyable and rewarding competition.
I would also like to thank Beverly Ridings Marketing Manager, MACtac U.K. Ltd for sponsoring the contest & for arranging the shipping of 100 metres of MACcal 9800 PRO vinyl via their Singapore subsidiary out to Leeroy & Jenny in Australia.

On behalf of MACtac I would like to congratulate Lee and Jenny on their
worthy win! We were very impressed with the entries published and obviously
a lot of thought had gone into the creation of a logo to portray the image
of the transport company effectively - well done everybody! For Australian
site members and visitors: If you are needing advice on access to MACtac
products in Australia or want information on our products, please contact
MYLIN TAN at our Singapore Office email: mylin@mactac.com.sg.

Just for the record boys and girls. Jenny's the good looking one and the talented one. Congrats to the other guys as well for some great looking designs.

I've actually used the new vinyl yesterday, and I'm really impressed with it so far. 100 Metres will really come in handy.

First impressions Rob are all positive. I've not used it for a major job yet but it cut and weeded really well.

I made up the Sam Green logo into a small sign. It felt a bit more substantial to Calon ( of which I use most), which I liked. Right off the top of my head I thought "rubbery" was the feel...really flexible. I'm going to put quite a bit of it on Jens car (when we can make up our minds what we want). I feel pretty confident that the vinyl's going to be really good to fit.

The gloss looked even throughout which doesn't seem to be the case with the other vinyls I've used. There always seem to be areas of lesser gloss through a roll.

Ahhh something i have found myself when using other vinyl’s but thought it my imagination because of my commitment to the vinyl’s I use.
I have found this with Avery vinyl’s but can't comment on which type as I have never took note of type/grade when fitting.

mactac is a good chice if you can get your hands on it there... trust me mate! :wink:

Having been absent at the time I hadn't seen this thread before, looks like they got an award as well as the T Shirts. I didn't actually think Robert gave awards for anything so this came as quite a surprise :lol1: :wink:

Count yourself lucky Martin..

Rob has a wicked sense of humour.. the T shirt I won, even though it said "XXL" on the label.. was far too tight :-?
