Climber 5 Label Contest - Winner Selected!

Recommended Posts

 

I really like the colours on xredmenacex label!  :thumbsup:  Kinda reminds me of something... cant quite figure out what though ..  hmmm

 

 

This is probably my favorite label so far, I'm not sure about the colors but the whole label really captures the classic era of 1890's-1910's baseball. Tinker to Evans to Chance, anyone? ;)

Hello,

I just sent my entry in. It is my second contest, and man are the entries getting better from everybody!

I didn't look at the other entries to not influence my design. There is a lot of talent here, I wouldn't want to be the guy picking. I really like Dave Dries', Dvorak's, Bowman's and Strum's entries. Good luck to all, epecially the guy(s) that picks.

This contests are fun.

Feo.

Yes, you made it in time. I have about six more labels to post later this evening (morning?). :)

I finally figured it out! Albert is a computer. That 'stand in' you see at shows is just an actor. No human could do all the work Albert does. :)

If he is, he is powered by a 386. :P

 

You know I am kidding. ;)

I have no idea what this means, but thanks!!

 

 

 

Haha, I don't expect too many people outside of Chicago Cubs fanatics to know the roster of the last Cubs team to win the World Series in 1908 :) :!:

 

Tinker, Evans, and Chance, were the shortstop, 2nd baseman, and 1st baseman on that team, and they were experts at turning the double play. So for almost a hundred years people have been muttering 'Tinker to Evans to Chance' as an example of a smooth fielding play.

 

A little baseball history that seemed appropriate for this contest :D

That would explain why I haven't gotten the last round of labels up yet. I'll be working on that in a few, but I'm only running at 25Mhz, so it's going to take a while..

Congrats Jason, nice job! Your version does do a nice job of conveying the action of the game, which I think some of the entries (including mine) failed to do. I also really like how you used the traditional "silver" frame but didn't limit your illustration to the inside of it. Instead you "broke out" of it by adding the girders & drop shadows. Nice touch.

 

Now that the contest's over the pressure is off and I feel I can safely delurk. ;)

 

Thanks everyone for the kind words about my design. It was a fun contest and I was genuinely impressed by the quality and variety of the entries. Some of the other versions that really stood out for me:

 

Like Jason's, I think Nathan's versions did a good job of converying the action in the game.

 

I love the pen&ink, watercolor illustration style of Matt Reed's label. Nice work.

 

Happy Dude's "construction" label: I really like the warning sign concept of this one. It doesn't adequately convey the theme of the game but the minimal/graphic idea of this is really cool.

 

Props to everyone who was able to fit in both the construction site and baseball diamond into their illustrations. It can be difficult to fit that much information into a composition of that size. But including both of those elements goes a long way towards telling the whole story.

 

And last, but not least, there's something I really like about Paul Jeffery's submission. As he said, it's "simple retro styling & screenshot" but it's also very reminiscent of what a 3rd party game label would've looked like back in the 2600's heyday. I could easily see that label format used as a template for a whole line of games from the same manufacturer. Although use of the Atari logo probably woudn't have been allowed anyway.

 

Nice work everyone! :D
