The Logo Contest – Results!
Last week I invited any creative Mustachians to submit new logos for this site. Although I like making things myself, I thought it would be fun to have graphics from the readers as well, since a site like this really lives or dies based by its readership. I was not disappointed, as I received at least 25 submissions. Check ‘em out below, shown roughly in the order of submission.
Kudy at Monetary Musings sent these three:
Joel, a regular guy (i.e. non-blogger) with a side web/graphic design business called Tallsprout sent these:
I enjoyed this oldschool one from Jake, who resourcefully harvested the picture from the old Meet Mr. Money Mustache article (circa April 2011, the first post ever on this blog):
The always-spunky Aussie named Mortgage Mutilator went a little crazy and produced seven designs for us:
Sarah from DotDashLabs created this one:
Famous Fancy illustrator Dave Joly sent us this animated one (you may have to open it in a separate window to see the animation)
After cautioned him I him that Mr. Mustache is very serious and not cute at all (note that he had already attempted co cute-ify MMM with this February 2012 sticker design), his competitive instincts were triggered and he sent four more:
A reader named Alexia created this neat giant Yosemite Sam Mustache with gold in its nook from scratch:
Vince (with website kingsalomon.net) sent the following wild entry:
(in case you are concerned about that young lad’s rather adult-looking biceps – apparently Vince Photoshopped his own arms onto his son).
Jeremy Doolin, a guy you might hear about in an MMM article someday, is a guy who recently ended up as an accidental radio guest host, discussing Mustachianism on a station in Virginia called WKKX (last Friday of every month at 11amEST):
Apparently the muscle/mustache dude in the picture is Eugen Sandow. Pioneer body builder and 19th century badass.
Those were all the submissions that showed up before the deadline. But if you ever want to create a new one some day in the future, don’t be shy – send it along and I’d be happy to add it to the collection. My plan is to swap these things out in a random fashion for many months to come, and create more as inspiration strikes.
And as you might have guessed from what is live on the site at the time of publishing, my personal favorite right now is: the “Coin and Planks” logo. It just looks really classy and badass to me, and as an added bonus the dude on that antique Russian coin happens to look pretty similar to me in profile.
Many thanks to everyone and happy weekend.
