Figment Challenge #2 Met!

October 18th, 2011

So thanks to the players who accepted Figment Challenge #2.  We had four submissions and they were all good.  I love seeing what you guys can do w/ an image, especially when you’re all working from with the same one!  It was tough to pick a winner, but we thought this design not only showed it’s creator’s sense of humor, but also had some great design touches.

So the winner of Figment Challenge #2 is:

So congratulations to poppinfresh for not only accepting and meeting our Figment Challenge #2, but exceeding it as well with his great design for Let’s Not and Say We Did’s “That Dog Won’t Hunt” cover!  We’ll be depositing 2,000 pieces of Lucre in his account and he’ll be allowed to release his album on Figment, so congrats poppinfresh!  We loved those chalk drawings!

The next best design in our opinion was from FuriousGrace for her cover of Malaika’s “Me and My Shadow”.  She’ll be receiving 1,500 pieces of Lucre for her design.  We loved the use of color and the font choice – and flipping the image gave it some more impact.

3rd place went to thehoseman for his design for The Beggars “Cheddar Blast”.  Again, nice flip and use of only the shadow as the main image.  We liked the font choice also.

The fourth submission was from Tyman for his band Decrease Magnum’s album “Messed Up World”, and we’ve decided that for accepting the challenge we’re going to award him 250 pieces of Lucre.

Thanks to everyone who accepted our latest challenge, and be on the lookout for the next one because we’ll be issuing it real soon!

    Nice work poppinfresh, FuriousGrace & Tyman!
    I completely agree with the Figment folks. Poppinfresh, your design concept & execution was outstanding…the sidewalk chalk was perfect.
    FuriousGrace, your design ties nicely to Malaika’s image, “brand” & past cover designs. I love the continuity.
    Nice to see Tyman meet the challenge as well.

    Would have liked to see a bunch more entries, but I think we got some pretty creative stuff for this one.

    Great entries, everyone! I wish I could have taken part in this challenge, as I had intended to, but I misread the due date. Lame. I look forward to the next challenge!

    Many thanks to Eric and the gang at Figment for posing this challenge and choosing “That Dog Won’t Hunt.” The other submissions are incredible! It’s really interesting to see the different directions we all went in. I can’t wait to see what people come up with in Challenge No. 3!
