Contest Brief

This is the second round for an animated logo introduction.

The first round produced the attached video, a prototype that represents the core concept. The arrows are a pseudo-realistic representation, showing the back-and-forth flow of internet communication. Additional details about the first contest are attached as a reference.

The goal of this contest is to give the message flows a digital feel. Some digital ideas are shown in the attached pdf. No specific preference, this is a free-form contest, show how you would give the video a digital feel.

You many use the attached AE project file 'as-is', you're responsible for handling missing assets, fonts, scripts, and/or plug-ins.

Criteria:

1. Keep the original concept
2. Give the video a digital feel
3. Make the video loop-able, seamless

Duration: 10~20 seconds
Format: HD (16:9)

Deliverables:

1. HD (16:9) video
2. AE Project Files

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Background:

This project is a logo intro concept that I thought would be kinda cool, it's based on how the logo mark was created. There isn't target audience, I will probably just use it at the end of keynote presentations.

I don't have a budget, no timeline. But it's something that might interest freelancers that need experience, interested in the challenge, want to refine their skills, and/or get better at interacting with clients. Plus, make a little coffee money on the side.

The plan is to run a series of contests. Each one, building on the previous. The prize amount is low, based on an arbitrary estimate of the complexity my request. Sorry! But I don't have to post the contest at all, having an logo intro isn't a priority, but I am interested in seeing where this process leads.

Boilerplate:

By sharing the AE project files, you MAY be asked to grant permission to share the files 'as-is' in future contests. With permission, the client will ONLY use the AE project files with the SOLE intention of building on (add, replace, reuse, but NOT modify) elements in the AE project provided; keeping with the established theme; deferring to the original freelancer for specific modifications to their original work.

    I would like to thank everyone for their submissions. There was a lot of insightful ideas, even learned a few directions to avoid. In the end, learned a more specific direction that I would like to take. Meaning, that I need to provide more specific instructions for the next round.

    I will be rebooting this contest, running it again with more specific instruction in the coming weeks. Doubling the prize too! So keep an eye put for the next one, I'll try to invite everyone that participated in this one.

    Thanks!

    So far... Two of the three submissions have tired to change how the arrows flow. Moving away from the original concept.

    This contest is to stylize the video, giving it a digital feel. Changing the colors, backlight, pixelation, put it on a HUD, or some other techniques.

    The arrow flows are part of the original concept that is to be kept.

    While you 'may' change the arrow flows, the prototype shows the DESIRED arrow flows. It's the result of a previous contest and is a representation of how REAL internet traffic flows.

    I can not accept glitch, twitch, and digital distortion of the company logo. We provide voice communications (analog and digital), conveying bad connectivity or bandwidth issues is not a message we want to send.
