Greetings Tumblrers! Today’s post comes to you in two rather large parts, so lets get right to it.
Part 1: The Logo Design Contest goes global.
Right there, you can see a map of the vast variety of places where people voted from. I am quite genuinely shocked at our vast geographical spread. I knew Nerdfighteria reached all across the globe, but this is quite something. Add to that the fact that in some cases, most notably the Dominican Republic and Australia, one pin does not mean one vote. The surveying website can only be so accurate, and we got one pin representing seventeen votes in the Australian city of Perth, and there were more voters from the Dominican Republic than there were from the UK!
To give you some perspective on the numbers, here’s the low down on where people are voting from, and how many of them there are. We had votes from, in alphabetical list form…
Argentina (1 vote), Australia (31 votes), Austria (1 vote), Barbados (1 vote), Belgium (1 vote), Brazil (1 vote), Brunei Darussalam (1 vote), Bulgaria (1 vote), Canada, Chile (1 vote), Colombia (1 vote), Croatia (1 vote), Czech Republic (1 vote), Dominican Republic (24 votes), Ecuador (1 vote), Finland (1 vote), France (4 votes), Germany (1 vote), Greece (1 vote), Iceland (1 vote), India (5 votes), Indonesia (1 vote), Italy (3 votes), Macedonia (1 vote), Malaysia (1 vote), Mexico (3 votes), New Zealand (2 votes), Panama (1 vote), the Philippines (5 votes), Poland (3 votes), Portugal, Singapore (2 votes), Slovakia (1 vote), Spain (5 votes), Sweden (1 vote), Switzerland (1 vote), the US (100 votes) and the UK (21 votes)
So thank you every one! I’m really pleased that this project has gone so far around the world!
But now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for.
Part 2: The Logo Design Contest Winners
Before we announce the winners, with the French Llama of last year overseeing the final results, I will say that every single design got at least one vote, so no one is going home with nothing. So let’s reveal the scores.
7th place - 3 votes - Design 3
6th place - 4 votes - Design 4
5th place - 10 votes - Design 2
4th place - 19 votes - Design 6
And so now, we come to the top three…
An excellent piece of design! Thoroughly liked by the community, winning over 50% of the total vote, more than deserving to win! Well done! I shall be contacting Mr Pennington about designing us a front cover over the next few days.
Thank you all for taking part, whether you voted, designed, or if you told any fellow nerdfighters what was going on. After the initial drought of entries, I was very worried nothing would happen, but I think this has been a splendid year’s worth of work, with an excellent final outcome.
I hope you all like the final logo! You’ll be seeing lots more of it from now on! Specifically, as this Tumblr’s new avatar, and on the tickets which will be available soon!
God Bless, Best Wishes, and DFTBA
