Idea for a new forum
Posted 22 June 2004 - 06:29 PM
1) New designers would get feedback on their strengths and weaknesses
2) We would be developing a community portfolio of designers entering the same contest without having to worry about copyrighted works...the way I see this going is that we could also do some kind of "find a designer that suits you" where it shows random anonymous entries from each of the designers grouped by these informal contests and they click through several and then the system tells them which designer they best matched with, at which point they could contact the designer to hire them or contact them to ask them to enter the competition
3) It would be fun
4) It would generate many more examples of what the members of this site are capable of.
I think it would be great, but what do you all think?

Design battles would be fun though.

Someone gives a name and a field of activity for a given company and we all design something according to the specifications. Only one.
Then mods or anyone else named for it makes a complete critique of all logos received. But still everyone can critique. Its just to make a little more formal.
And it ends just there. If you want to rework on it than its up to you. But there is no need for a follow-up on every single update. You have to be able to go by yourself.
These "contest" could be a week or a month long. No contest, no winner, just some fun.

And at the end of the year, there could be a "Round of Champions" where all the monthly winners would compete for a price or something, maybe just for pride !
I think this would be fun

And maybe we could make it somehow like American Idol. There are the judges that are giving feedback, the the members are voting for the winners. I don't know if there would be enough participation but anyway ... its an other idea

I have now decided to move the battles here, so I will probably start this up shortly. Anyways, read through the rules and such to get an idea of what it would be about.

To make my long winded statement short, don't limit the contests to one area of design, if people really want to learn and improve their skills, more choice is needed.
