Sentinelrv got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Logo Needed for Peercoin, a Revolutionary Cryptocurrency Designed to Rival Bitcoin!
Check out Sentinelrv's Logo design contest…
Accounting & Financial
The logo to be designed is for a cryptocurrency called Peercoin, also known as ppcoin, ppc and Peer to Peer Coin. Cryptocurrencies are a form of digital currency that provide people with the ability to send coins to anyone anywhere in the world at any time without having to worry about large transaction fees. Unlike dollars or paper money, cryptocurrencies cannot be printed out of thin air. This revolutionary feature helps to prevent inflation and devaluation of the currency, helping to maintain its value. Cryptocurrencies also provide anonymity in transactions, take banking out of the equation, as well as many other benefits. Bitcoin is currently the most popular cryptocurrency, although we plan to change that over time. The problem with Bitcoin is that the security of its network is maintained through a process called mining using a proof of work system where many computers work together to protect the network through computation. There are literally rooms full of electronic equipment dedicated to mining Bitcoin. This leads to a problem where a massive amount of energy is being expended in order to guarantee the security of the network. This problem can only get worse as it becomes more accepted as a mainstream currency, making Bitcoin fundamentally unsustainable in the long-term. Peercoin attempts to solve this energy problem by combining the proof of work system with proof of stake, which provides the security of the network through a different process and reduces energy expenditure significantly, also allowing for interest to be generated on your accumulated coins. Peercoin is therefore the world's first energy efficient environmentally friendly cryptocurrency.
Logo types to explore
This design contest was paid for by the community behind Peercoin. Because of this, it would be unfair of me to guide the graphic designers to a final design all by myself. Everyone that contributed money to this contest has a different opinion, therefore I'm going to link here to a thread on our forum where everyone can voice their opinions and give suggestions. Please check in on this thread and listen to their concerns. Our community will help guide you to a final design... Link: http://www.ppcointalk.org/index.php?topic=315.0 ------------------------------------------------- Rules: 1. All designs need to be face down shots of the coin. Angle shots are ok as long as they are in addition to the face down shots. 2. All designs must include the double P symbol, which is displayed on all the uploaded concept art. There are two versions of this symbol displayed in the concept art, a wider version with more space in between the two P's and a thinner version. Please use the thinner version in your designs. 3. Please don't put any text on the coin. The only exception is the double P symbol mentioned above. The reason for this is because Peercoin is a global currency not associated with any specific language. 4. Gold + eco-friendly. That sums up what we're looking for. The design needs to convey somehow that Peercoin is environmentally friendly. The primary color also needs to be gold. Silver and bronze coin designs will not be accepted. Other colors can be mixed into the design, but the coin must primarily be gold. So to be clear, either the coin needs to be all gold, or primarily gold with some other colors mixed in and it also needs to convey eco-friendliness. 5. Before setting up this contest, we designed several versions of the logo ourselves. You will notice in the downloads below that many of the concepts incorporate a specific leaf design. You can do one of two things. Either you can take that same leaf design and use it to make an improved coin, or you can start over from scratch. The choice is up to you. Remember, you're designing a logo for a coin which could possibly be one of the top digital currencies in the world in the future. That is a huge responsibility. Please keep that in mind as you design your logo. Good luck! ------------------------------------------------ Frequently Asked Questions: What is wrong with the downloadable concept art? I've been asked this question via PM. We setup this contest to see if people could either improve the design we already have or if they could come up with something better. The concept art below is also outdated. Some versions contain text, some are bronze looking or yellowish in color and not gold. The only gold concept is small and at an angle shot and not face down. So really, nothing is wrong with the design of the concept art except that many of them don't follow the rules we've setup listed above. Try improving on it if you want. Look below to design suggestion #1. ------------------------------------------------ Design Suggestions: 1. In the downloads below you will find a concept called ppcoinsimplegold. Can somebody take that concept and make a larger face down version of it using the same exact leaf design? ppcoinsimplegold itself uses the wider version of the PP symbol. Please instead use the thinner version. You can see what that version looks like by downloading the other concept art.
