In terms of pure aesthetics I think the design works well. The composition uses the space in a pleasing way and there’s a nice balance. I don’t think the concept is there. The thing is, I feel you could interchange the Quicksilver logo with any apparel logo here and the design would work just as well. That’s fine if this was just part of a generic clothing line, but there is purpose to this contest. And I don’t read a unifying purpose in this design. Sure you can interpret the design in many different ways, but the very point of art is to communicate ideas. If there is no perceivable concept, then the design is unsuccessful in some way (unless the point of the design is to be confusing). I think from what I’ve seen collisiontheory has so far done the best job of aligning with the contest theme.
