Project description

long course triathlon event held in the sea side town of warrnambool the swim will be in a river under an old historic bridge, the ride will be on a coast road with many hills hence the "suffer" component and its more than likely going to be windy (its always windy in warrnambool) and then the run is on a board walk beside the ocean and river undulating in between the sand dunes. the distances will be 2km swim / 80km bike / 20kn run we want the race to logo to convey epic yet tempting / sharp contempory feel to it and ability to insert a naming rights sponsor at a later point - we anticipate the race will eventually be know as sufferfest 2013 - sufferfest 2014 etc

  • CH, Good morning, I have just submitted the entry #8 I would like to know your opinion. Thanks Lorenzo
  • to ch about #4. This is the cool logo i came up with for your company
  • Dear CH, here are my design artworks: #35,#36,#37,#38,#39.I hope you like them. If any changes(color etc.) required,please tell me. Regards. Reni
  • Hi Ch, #69 #71 #70 that my new designs... thanks............
  • Hi CH, Cool. Many thanks! You deserve the best design. Your input is very much appreciated and makes me learn how to interpret briefs more effectively. :-)
  • thanks Conrad for the design.....its a really strong submission. Probably works better for an off road type event but it has captured a hard core element and funky design.......your design is a close second as it sits, really appreciate the effort. Shame we only need one logo
  • Dear CH Thank you for the rating. Please let me know if you want to see more. :-) Conrad
  • Dear CH, I appreciated the 49 points you awarded #52 and was working on revising it to make it better. It takes time to recreate concepts and improve complex illustrations like mine. I did not want to waste my effort and so would still like to submit #65, #66, #67 and #68 (so you can see the variations in different color formats and backgrounds of the same design), since I was already almost done when I saw that my points for #52 were taken away and my entry eliminated. I am new to Design Contest and new to this design competition format and as you can see, I have not gained too many points as of yet. So those 49 that were taken away when you eliminated me were precious. This is a learning experience for me, and though it seems you have already made up your mind (and I don’t blame you, I like your choice as well), I would still like to ask you the favor of considering my two new submissions and rating them, and maybe, even commenting, if you have the time. Thank you very much in advance. Conrad
  • we really like this design - think we will go with it...could you change the 2012 to 2013 and show us how the image would look like when we put it on a white background (image revesed out) similar to how contestant #45 shows the variations......once we have this we can approve
