The announcement that our community has been waiting for since The Kleek’s ‘Skin Our Headies‘ contest ended has arrived! Yes folks, with an amazing field of 115 designs submitted, the selection of just 3 winners was a really tough one, but the judges have spoken and there choice of winners is….drumroll, please, maestro…
In first place, with a design that got all the judges raving is a submission by one of our longest-standing Springleap community members, Kharmazero, with his beautiful nighttime cityscape titled ‘Spring Rain’. Here’s a design with an inner-city urban feel and a really great color treatment that all adds up to a fantastic image on the side of the headies. Well done to Kharmazero, who takes $2,500 AND a Samsung GALAXY S4 home!
In second is a design that was a sure winner from the get-go: new Springleaper ProLV, with his awesomely simple yet wildly effective design, ‘Feel The Vibes’.
This is a great example of why it’s really important to read a brief thoroughly and keep in mind the critical elements that should be reflected in design submissions – the colours of The Kleek brand are prominent, and ProLV’s incorporated these into a graphic equaliser graphic treatment that speaks directly to the core offer of The Kleek brand: music. No surprise that ProLV walks off happily with a sweet $600 AND a Samsung GALAXY Note II – well done!
In last but certainly not least third place is another long-time Springleaper whose talent has seen her scoop wins in the past, on account of her super-slick vector illustration skills.
Yep, it’s the one & only Danae Botha, with her design ‘Black Betty Jr’! Now this again was a clear favourite for both the client brand and design fans from the start. With really creative use of the brand colours and a super-cute character pulling it all together on the cans, this is the kind of wearable art that many music fans will be very happy to wear around town. Congrats to Danae, who rocks out with a Samsung GALAXY Note II and $400!
