A face to launch a thousand Seeds — which one do you like?

[bra_dropcaps style=’dropcap2′]W[/bra_dropcaps]e’ve been searching for a face to call our own,  and so we ran a Community Design Lab to find Seed a new logo.  And you people sure showed us! Check out the talent pool below. There are five people with a range of submissions, and we’re keen to hear your thoughts on which one you see representing Seed — now and into the future.  [bra_border_divider top=’20’ bottom=’20’]

Design inspiration

This logo is about love, Interconnectedness, nature and harmony. The love element is based on a true love story which started at last years Burning Seed event!

It’s a symbol which aims to create a balance between female and male energy. Its open and playful and inspires people to be creative and thrive. I was also inspired by the original design and felt it was important to keep a relationship to this.

Due to the last-minute awareness of this project I was only able to generate a logo.. If you decide to continue working on this design I would love the opportunity to spend more time on the typography and further finalise the logo and colours.

Design inspiration

I have taken a symbolic rather than literal approach to the seed logo, as Burning Seed is means different things to different people, and as such the logo should be abstract and interpretable. Taking an organic approach, inspired by aboriginal style of painting, the logo has the seed at centre surrounded by rings representing the constant cycle of destruction (fire) and growth (seed), as well as paying homage to the natural landscape of our Australian earth.[bra_border_divider top=’20’ bottom=’20’]

Design inspiration

My inspiration was the fire of Australian bush that is needed to turn seeds into life. I thought the seed was the simplest icon to use for a solid icon, which fits nicely with the two yin-yang style sides, producing the shape of a flame and the shape of a gum leaf. The split in the seed symbolises the catalyst of one’s soul being burnt by the experience of the burningman experience, which causes it to grow into new life – like the Australian bush does after a bush fire. The split also forms the shape of an “S” for Seed, which is also handy!

Design inspiration

Whilst trying to encapsulate the 10 principles, focus fell on the playa, the people and the purpose of the event. I also wanted to highlight what day vs night offers, and how the event is more than 24 hours a day – it’s 365 days per year.

Design inspiration

Red Earth. I wanted to represent Australia as fire in both form and colour – a continent on fire! The flame shapes also denote the different states / territories (not literally) burning together as one, with Tasmania a simple flame linking the words with the illustration. And I also wanted a link to the existing logo as I felt continuity was important – this is achieved through colour, flame and a simple lowercase typeface.
