Uninspired by the 21st Century Fox logo? DesignCrowd invites designers to create a better logo in new contest

Global design marketplace, DesignCrowd.com, has launched an unofficial $500 logo design contest to design a new 21st Century Fox logo, after the mixed response to the new logo from the international design community.

The New Logo

Earlier this month, owner Rupert Murdoch unveiled a new logo for 21st Century Fox, the (new) parent company that owns the Fox broadcast and entertainment brands.

Some in the design  community described the logo, created by Pentagram, as mimicking an ’80s telecom’  logo. Under Consideration said it was ‘underwhelming‘ and Design Taxi remarked “the new company logo is much like a minimalistic version of production studio 20th Century Fox’s logo.”

Former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd Crowdsources Election T-Shirt Design

Yesterday Kevin Rudd, former Prime Minister of Australia and Minister of Parliament announced the winner of a t-shirt design contest he launched in October.

The winner is Studio71, a graphic design studio started by Shane Marchewka who discovered the contest on crowdsourcing site DesignCrowd and submitted six designs to the website’s $1,000 t-shirt design contest.

“I registered with DesignCrowd earlier in the year as a way to boost my exposure as a freelance designer. I am stoked enough to say I have a former Prime Minister as a client however the $1,000 prize money is like a cherry on top of a very sweet cake!” he said.

Mr Rudd tweeted about the contest yesterday and said, “Shane is a great guy who is putting in the effort to start his own small business. He had a range of great ideas and really embraced the spirit of the competition. I wish Shane and Studio71 all the best for taking his business to the next step. I was overwhelmed by the quantity and quality of entries, so thanks a million to DesignCrowd and Australia’s talented graphic design community.”

It’s not everyday designers acquire former Prime Ministers as clients.

Here is the winning design:
