Pampling’s Gamer Crest

Gamer Crest by CoryFreemanDesign makes a big impression because while I’ve seen a lot of gaming themed crests before, I’ve not seen one done with this level of sophistication. Crisp little daggers of shading give the art a woodcut feel, while scrolls and a darker color palette help to impart a feeling of tradition. The design’s smartest move, though, might be in its choice of what gaming implements to include. It’s an extremely broad collection of objects, ranging from the classic (playing cards, puzzle piece) to the modern (computer mouse, gamepad directional button). And even better, it covers just about every kind of gaming imaginable so that no matter what kind of play you prefer, it probably shows up somewhere in the art. Really solid work.

Pampling has two options for winners of their contest. XPress winners earn 1 euro per shirt sold, with a minimum of 100 euros guaranteed. If the design sells well, designers may have the option of earning 500 euros to give Pampling the exclusive printing rights for one year. The second option is Classic winners, who earn 680 euros cash and 120 euros in t-shirts (or 720 euros cash) for the first 400 units and exclusive rights for 3 years. If the design is reprinted, the artist earns 850 euros cash and 150 euros in Pampling products (or 900 euros cash).
