EDAWARDS 2012 Europe’s best publicized Design Awards – Deadline 29 February!

 

The European Design Awards is the comprehensive annual awards organization celebrating the best of graphic design, illustration and digital design in Europe. A joint effort by 15 communication design magazines from across the continent, the ED-Awards is a brilliant way to publicise your work on an international level.

On deciding to enter any design competition you should ask yourself two very important questions:

How certain can you be on the quality of the results?
The ED-Awards boast the most qualified jury around, composed of representatives from the leading European design magazines. They are specialised design editors and critics, whose daily work is precisely to recognise and promote the best of communication design internationally. Further more, an observer appointed by the International Council of Graphic Design Associations, the world body for professional communication design, is always present in order to ensure that all rules are followed to the letter.

What will you get out of it?
The ED-Awards receive the widest publicity in the design awards field. Agencies and designers who excel here, receive the best coverage available. The reason is simple: the ED-Awards are based on a network of design media, i.e. the means of communication themselves.

How to enter

Deadline 29 February!

Note that this year, all samples should be sent to:

Oxford Business Group logo inspires Choueiri Group

Original: Oxford Business Group

Less original: Choueiri Group

Bothe the above examples have the same core idea with difference in color scheme.

A logo (Greek λογότυπος = logotypos) is a graphical element, (ideogram, symbol, emblem, icon, sign) that, together with its logotype (a uniquely set and arranged typeface) form a trademark or commercial brand. Typically, a logo’s design is for immediate recognition, inspiring trust, admiration, loyalty and an implied superiority. [1] The logo is one aspect of a company’s commercial brand, or economic entity, and its shapes, colors, fonts, and images usually are different from others in a similar market. Logos are also used to identify organizations and other non-commercial entities.

Lateral Thinking: When a low probability line of thought leads to an effective idea, there is a “Eureka” moment and at once the low-probability approach acquires the highest probability. – Edward De Bono. Excerpt from a book by John Townsend & Jacques Favier titled The Creative Manager’s Pocketbook. Page: 2. ISBN: 1-870471-69-5.

A copycat is a person that mimics or repeats the behavior of another. The term is often derogatory, suggesting a lack of originality. The expression may derive from kittens that learned by imitating the behaviors of their mothers. – Wikipedia.

Plagiarism: The abuse of another’s original work by copying it and passing it off as one’s own. As defined in Alastair Campbell book titled The Designer’s Lexicon. Page: 293 ISBN: 0-304-35505-4.

Imitation is the sincerest form of thievery” excerpt from a book by Capsule titled Design Matters. Page: 84. ISBN -13:978-1-59253-341-1.
