The Absolute Plantagon T-Shirt contest is closed.
We would like to congratulate the Winner:
The winning contribution:
OK, we will steal a good idea (from Absolute Vodka, another Swedish brand - and don't you miss the chance to make some money for yourself here at the same time as doing good):
We ask you - famous artists and creative people all over the world - to create t-shirt-art inspired by the Plantagon logotype.
The logo is named "Evolution" and the meaning is as follows (you will not get the full story here though...):
The ring symbolizes eternity, all life, everything.
The left "arrow" is all human actions until today (human history); obviously it does NOT connect to eternity as we do know if we are part of it (most probably not).
The right "arrow" represents the upcoming human activities, let's call it the future.
Inbetween history and the future is a space - that is the moment of responsibility we are always in; looking back at the history, learning from it and making the right decision for the future; good decisions made based upon understanding of the past and the true consideration of future generations.
If you look really, really carefully you can also see that there is a "smiley" (it was designed in 1994 when there were NO smilies around) in the logo as the "arrows" are not really centered: It is a good warrior fighting to make good at the same time as she/he is prooving to be and idealist - fighting really, really hard.
Now: You make t-shirt-art of this logo, we publish and sell your t-shirt with your signature on it and you keep 20% of the profit.
Deal? Send us your entry at firstname.lastname@example.org before September 15th.
