    Well, I’m probably gonna lose. If the Red Flames Rising billboard doesn’t take the top spot, I’ll be shocked.

    I’m so excited to see the final results of this contest. I honestly wasn’t planning on designing any billboards. Then I realized how cool a rock n’ roll billboard would look on the front page of figment for a month, which was my main motivation. I had first designed one for Stonekrank’s Unstoppable album and didn’t think I would do any more. But then, I decided last minute to design one for Theory of Red. I even got one in for Daisy May’s Thrash Punk Superstar, but the Theory of Red billboard turned out best. It’s essentially a widescreen version of the same cover with a slightly modified design, which looks great with the full wingspan of their eagle. Btw, thanks frizbee for the kind words. I dig all the other finalists’ billboards (especially Muffin’s).

    I am blown away by the other submissions! Best of luck to everyone, and may the best billboard win…

    Good luck guys. I will probably lose this one since I was super sick when I put mine together and forgot that it was to promote an album not just the band. The image is from “Some like it in the pot 9 days old” though so ummmm yeah. I totally meant to do that >.>
