    The Winners!

    Here comes the results as choosed by Bates, for the sketches with the best lettering structure:

    1st Place: Tenz
    Bates' Comments: This one the winner because it has that Nyc flavour,good foundation of letter structure (that are moving),with the basic n classic elements of bits,drips and arrows,really fresh connections.. good ol' classic flavour, never goes out of fashion! I like the 3d aswell,the top of the "S" could have a stronger ending,but thats just me....

    2nd Place: Vectr
    Bates' Comments: This one is moving up and down,and has many small and good details,swirls and one arrow around the "E", really like the 3 bits on the "d" and "s",nice shadow effect,the bending on the s is fresh! Very clean outline,would probally take the small straightletters and 2008 away, looks better without!

    3rd Place: Die59
    Bates' Comments: Probally the one who put the most work into the outline, small "d" with the star as the hole, nice paper folds, organic splash, look through detail on the "E", funky crown, nice sharp letter combo's,w ould like to see some more arrows...

    Special mentions:
    - etips
    - lumos
    - mewt
    - mistix
    - rekal
    - mime
    - dyal

    i like vectr better the winner just looks too plain (i guess for lack of color)

    not that i could ever reproduce anything on any level of these guys or most of you guys ....

    just my plain opinion.
