Hometown League Vote! April 30, 2013 Posted by clinker casey Comments 42 thoughts on “Hometown League Vote!” Hey guys, looks like my original submission (the blue bomber hat) is up instead of my re-do. Looks like that plagiarized frog got in at DI and I also thought it was decided that GH was too similar to some other hockey logo. Some really great entries here! Wish we choose enough for a real league (like 20 or so)! Eh… I’d cut Casey some slack. There’s some 170-odd entries here, for which maybe a quarter to a third were submitted a second time with edits. That’s a lot of work to manage the posting process, and organize the voting, especially for a project that doesn’t affect the bottom line. The Clink Room seems to be a labor of love, and while it’s usually the first site I check in the morning, both Casey and Jason provide it out of their generosity. We get access to them and their design process here that is second to none. Besides, I think it has been established that the winners of the popular vote aren’t guaranteed to win either. I’m assuming that those that do win will be vetted for originality and sell-ability to an extent greater than is given on original submission. How in the hell am I going to whittle this down to 5??? Each new league gets tougher to vote on than the one before it. If some of these shouldn’t be included, for whatever reason, then do not vote for them… Good luck to everyone! Holy cow. I’m right there with Kevin, this is gonna be tougher than DESIGNING an entry, haha! I just noticed my Fightin’ Sagueros entry didn’t make the ballot. Glad everyone is catching my mistakes. I’ll fix everything when I get into the office. This is a tough vote, there are a lot of quality entries. For the record, these are the ones i voted for: 1. DS 2. DZ 3. BD 4. FA 5. AH 1 vote for DS I would like to vote for BU. I also asked 9,567 of my friends in Indonesia who don’t have internet access and they all like BU also…Sooo…9,568 votes for BU. Hey Clinkers, I removed the plagiarized frog entry, added Jordan’s Saguaros (Even though we did an unreleased design a few months before this context started that looks a lot like that entry. Not sure if it’ll be released, but we didn’t copy you Jordan!), I also added the ghost bombers revision in there but I think the original might be better so lets see how they both do. Just a reminder, the vote is to survey interest in the designs. Ballot stuffing, which is fine but useless, has always been a part of these contests. The winners will be chosen by Jason and me. If there are other mistakes, try to ferret them out before the end of the day. Jason and I will be traveling for the rest of the week starting tomorrow and I can’t change this complicated post on the road. This is my first Clink league – how many of these usually get printed? Great work everyone! going to be tough to choose my top 5….. CA, CB, CI, FY, FZ No worries on the cap, Casey! If it’s a good idea, it matters THAT it gets made, not WHO makes it. Thanks for adding it! my pre-revised entry is the one up for voting montebello feos Lalosoda, fixed! There is some really great stuff here. It will be hard to pick 5. Good luck to all who entered! I gotta admit that these look good en masse. Pingback: The Hometown League | Foogos I will need to make brackets to whittle this down. So many great designs. It’s difficult to choose just 5, but I think I have my picks Vote DM and GD! voted for AP EI EJ DZ CQ Wow! So may outstanding designs. That said, I’m voting… CW CY EJ EO GC AH, BJ, GN, FA, FW Did you guys get my TC resubmission DJ It took me quite some time to narrow it down to 5 but it was fun looking back at all these entries. Good Luck everybody! Righto, voting time.. I like what I see, but dare I say, maybe not as many stand out insta-hits as previous leagues.. I didnt have time to do re-subs on mine, which Im pretty disappointed in, I prefer my CK over my CN, which needed the most re-working. Anyway, my favourites that I will be picking a top 5 from are FA – Platypus EX – Seal EJ – Fish EB – Mountain face DE – Bird BT – Snowflake BU – Rooster S Congrats to all involved, some really inspiring ideas.. Can I vote 5 times for EJ? My top 5 are: EJ – far and away my favorite. DC DE AC AU Looks like the first group of hats got put on there twice by accident Anyways.. AG BA CT EI FU Any chance of somehow getting a logo of one NOT chosen? Tough, tough decisions to narrow these down to my top five. I’ll echo what Efra said: it was difficult to chose a final five, but a good time to review them all, and give many a second consideration. I’d love for one of mine to be chosen, but I’m voting for these: AU CF DZ EA EO Excellent work, everyone! top 5 GB GH EA EO AU I’ve never voted here before, there are so so many good ones to pick! AH BQ CY CZ GC BB, AN, FN, AQ! AI is the best CY DZ EJ EQ Iconic, well executed, sport branding specificity are all exemplified in these. Great entries all. These are the cream nevertheless. My 5 best designs : 1: EO Nerdyppotamus 2: EJ 3: AH 4: AZ 5: FA I know I’m late to the party, but whoa! what a Ballot! That thing is beautiful! Well done Casey & Jason and to all the Clinkers who submitted an entry! Cheers for the votes guys!!! Warefare Chris, Adam C & @alf_e Oh and you too! @Francis Cheers for the vote.
