Zoophemism Theme Design – Enter Now!

Hey Burners - it's that time again! With Burning Seed on the horizon, we are now launching the Burning Seed 2019 Event Theme Design. Whether you are a professional or amateur graphic designer, an artist or a cat-person - if you have a design in mind, we'd love to see it!


What is the Theme Design process all about?

Every year we select a unique theme to inspire the art, costumes and events you experience at Burning Seed, and with the theme in 2019 being Zoophemism - it should be an interesting one!

We then call out to YOU the community to show us your design skills and create the face of the design.


What does this actually mean?

We want you to interpret the theme of Zoophemism and design a poster based on this interpretation. After entries close, the winning theme design will be voted on by Burning Seed Facilitators and Team Leads.

The winning design will then be magically transformed (not actual magic) into all of our event collateral including our WWW Guide, Survival Guide, wristbands, tickets, stickers (returning for 2019!), website banners, Facebook images, promotional materials/posters and more!

Wait, so I have to design all of those things?

 

Nup! We only need you to design the poster. If yours is the winning design, our Design Team Lead will apply your design to all of the things, and work with you to ensure the design is able to be adjusted as necessary.


Me, me, me! How about the rules?

There are no rules! Apart from the specs of the submission, the rest is completely up to you. You are free to interpret the theme in whichever way you wish so let your imagination run wild. We have had some amazing submissions in the past and we really want to see what Zoophemism means to you!

The Theme Design & Submission Process

The theme design is now open and you have just over 5 weeks to submit your design - but don't leave it to the last minute and miss out! We will be giving you a couple of reminders along the way. You can also submit more than one design if you wish - just use a separate application for each.

Here are the key dates you need to know:

  1. 31st January (thats today!) - Theme Design Opens
  2. 15th March - Theme Design Closes
  3. 22nd March - Winning Theme Design Announced 

What’s next?

Head on over to the Event Theme page of the Burning Seed website. There you will find some general info on the theme as well as design specs, FAQ's and instructions for the theme design submissions process.

We can’t wait to see what you come up with. Burn Bright!

The theme for Burning Seed 2019 is…

After almost 100 theme submissions and over 300 votes, the Burning Seed Theme for 2018 is..... Zoophemism submitted by Jesseca

Here's is how Zoophemism became the Burning Seed Theme for 2019 (and probably the most unusual theme we have ever had).

  • We opened our event submissions and received almost 100 - we were surprised that there were no alpaca related themes!
  • We then opened voting on all 100, and received just over 300 votes - once plenty of spam votes had been removed.
  • The top 5 themes were taken to the annual Burning Seed summit held last weekend and voted on by the Facilitators, Team Leads and Town Council.

So there you have itHow will you interpret Zoophemism for Burning Seed 2019? You could follow the description submitted by Jesseca: "Imagine a world where all euphemisms are animal related and puns are considered currency" or you can come up with your own interpretation. One thing is for sure, this Burning Seed theme is bound to lead to some very creative costumes and art pieces. 

What happens next?: Early next year we will open the Theme Design process for Zoophemism. This is where we ask the talented designers in our community to submit their design ideas which will then be used on our website, Facebook pages, Survival Guide, WWW Guide and a whole bunch of other stuff. More info on this will be coming later.
