And the winner is...
We’re delighted to announce that Barton Damer has won first prize! He receives a £2000 donation for Malaria No More, a charity committed to ending suffering and death caused by malaria. He also wins a double-page Computer Arts feature, his design displayed at high-profile sites in London and Berlin as well as 2000 Veer Credits to use for his latest creative projects.
Here was my thought process behind the concept: At first glance I want it to look like the continent of Africa. Next I want you to notice a beautiful African Queen. Then I want you to notice that there are a lot of disturbing things about this “Africa” - malaria being a big one. So you have this tension of a beautiful African queen, but on further observation you notice some of the disturbing elements that make up the artwork.
Thanks to everyone who took part. Our judging panel, all experts in the design world, were bowled over by the talent and originality on display. So congratulations to everyone for their efforts, and come back and visit Veer for millions of incredible images and thousands of extraordinary fonts. Happy designing!
