Thanks, I actually wasn't going for a picture of a dead dog. But I can find one if it would make it more powerful.

Thanks Sushi,,, I found some Pictures of dead dogs but i just thought these pictures were a little too gory. The dog I used is not totally dead but u can clearly see how he is suffering (bleeding) leading him to death.

DirectorSpence thanx for the design. I like it but another picture would certainly give more impact. There is no need to use a dead dog picture, the impact should be the design not the photography. A dog with a sad look is enough.

Also if you guys want to try some other cases of animal testing protest that will be really cool

Thanx again.

Guys, first of all let me tell you that I am impressed with the comitment that I see on the designs. I am really glad to see that the information is there and somebody is reading it. Thanx to all of you.

Now to the designs:

Nyxxie, WOW, the collage is really impressive !!! The dark atmosphere shows exactly what I feel when I read the information about this subject. I love the perspective you use, first person involves the reader, excelent idea. All I will ask you to change is the colour of the fonts and maybe the typography used. Something to enhance the reading more. I know you wanted to make the text be a part of the texture but if you could enhance it more it will provide an extra impact to the astounding image you have created.

Character, love to see design in action. The use of the photography is excelent and I really love the way you placed the text. Great use of the space and the colours. Again I love some of the fonts used and some not. The army font for "stop" is perfect but the text "animal testing" is too shy to be the closure of the message maybe because it's lower case. If you want to keep the serif I will go for the army condensed to the "animal testing" text in capital letters and the army expanded to the "you can" so it's not lost.

Flair, I always welcome drawing, since it's a direct expresion of the creator. I like the concept of the cosmetic implications of the animal testing factor. If it is ok with you I would like to enhance more the concept of the lipstick since it's a little lost behind the animals. Maybe with a little of 3d in the shape of the lipstic will be enough. Also I would add something to the message in order to inform a little more. Maybe "Did you know the price of beauty ?" or something else :D I will leave that to you.

DirectorSpence, one thing I forgot to tell you is that the fonts look too pixeled and the message get lost somehow. If you could give me the background idea of your creation I could guide you a little more to the completion of the design.

Again Thanx to all.
Will

ASchizoJekyl in order to post an image you will need a hosting to redirect the url. Once you have an address you simply place the url between the "img" tags or by using the image macro from the advanced reply section. There are a lot of sites that provide space for image upload an linking but you will need to have it online. I hope I can see your idea soon. :D

Wow guys, the cool entries keep coming in and I really love them. Let start with our new member,

X3Design: Man I love the concept is really great, don't have much to change, good job.

Nyxxie: You know how much I love your idea but still the text isn't visible enough. What do you think if you use the brightest colours of your collage to enhance the text, this way you keep the integrity of the colours yet make the typos more visible. Some of it can come from the white of the injection or the next bright colour. Thanx a lot for trying it again.

DirectorSpence: I love the message, is pretty good and have it's own poetry but I am still not convinced by the fonts and the bar code. I read your explanaitions about the concept (remember that when you become a design team member all the communication through pm or email with the contest holder will be punished with suspension) and I like it but somehow I see the desing too charged. First problem the bar code has too many slim bars that when you try to focus the eye loses the dog inside and the concept outside of it. Try to use a code with bolder bars and maybe a picture of an animal that outlines well the shape of that animal. Maybe you can use only the zone of the face of the animal, or the eyes to express the meaning. The second issue is the typography use. Your message have a lot of words so when you decide to overlap the fonts remember that you cannot change the typography too much or you will make the reader to get lost in the middle. Keep the integrity of the message by enhancing 1 or 2 words and leave the rest with the same font, that way the reader will be guided through the reading to the spot message. Another thing is check if you really need to add the picture to the numbers of the code or if the message will be more enhanced leaving those numbers with a plain colour. Again thanx a lot for staying and doing the great things you do.

ASchizoJekyl, no I didn't forget you, but almost... :D

I like the simplicity of your concept and the power of the message but there are a few things that need to be changed for the sake of the whole design. First the pixeled heads make the design lose quality, plz try to fix them, the same goes to the injection. Second the fonts... something isn't right there but I cannot figure out what it is. I would like the "STOP ANIMAL TESTING" more enhanced, maybe changing the text to capital letters will do it. I see the colours definitely show the concept of laboratory so I won't touch them. Just try to clean the lines and if it is posible see if you can place a frame around the card/poster so it can hold the white space within the design. Thanx a lot for the entry.

Thanx DirectorSpence. On 03-12-2005 I extended the deadline to friday, this week since more users wanted to participate and I didn't know if they would reach the deadline. But no more extensions will be made. Thanx to all for the great entries.
