Hugo Create announced the launch of the 16th round of its designer competition, started back in February 2008. The new phase, Motion of Sound, will be running up to August 31, with the winners to be named on October 1. Participants of the contest are as usual invited to create their unconventional graphics, featuring the Hugo Man Bottle, for a chance to become one of the 9 winners and receive $500 or to be selected as the grand winner, which will also get the same amount of money plus will have his or her work published in i-D magazine.
This round’s theme is music, and the participants are expected to render the impressive visions or feelings, which emerge during listening to their favourite melodies, with the help of graphics editing programs. The entrants’ designs should become a mirror of their deep emotions evoked by sounds—the previous theme, Pop Art & The City, seems to be a real piece of cake in comparison with the new task.
Designers are invited to download the HUGO Man Bottle and Logo as Photoshop PSD and Illustrator file, which will be later used for creating a JPG graphics file of 500Kb/0.5 Mb or less. The finished works should be uploaded on the contest’s page.
