The Brandberry team put together an awesome set of stickers, a mix different styles, cultures and symbolism with design reality. Each illustration has so much detail and character, these are truly awesome To find out more about Brandberry visit brandberry.net/ and behance.net/brandberry. We wanted for a long time to make our own set of stickers. It is not very interesting to simply print our logo, and we wanted to create something unique and sharp. We decided to mix different styles, cultures and symbolism with design reality. Chiromancy, masons, tattoos, Buddhism, Celts and illuminati are a partial list of characters used by us. Finally, we got the excellent stickers with a transparent background and contour cutoff. A hand of a martyr penetrated with a pencil. A designer’s client. Money, status and eyes closed. Keep calm and make the logo bigger. Two triangles with symbols of the designer’s tools. A bird caught into the briar patch in the shape of the letter “B” (Brandberry). The Holy Grail as a cocktail symbolized the work completed. Hourglass of deadline with a very wide neck. Shortcuts and tools: design chiromancy
So, after a really tough time trying to decide thru 251 entries, we finally got the three lucky guys who won. I would like to thank every contestants who took part on this, you all done great, hopefully we will do another contest on similar guidelines pretty soon, cheers!

For the first time Abdz is doing a contest in partnership with an artist and a sticker brand, just in case you don't know both, let me introduce you to them. About Sticker Robot Sticker Robot it's a top notch Sticker company, producing the best and most extraordinary genres of sticker you will ever see. Working mainly with silk screen, their printing technique can make any sticker dream you have come true. Hydro 74 (Joshua Smith) Hydro74 is a Orlando based designer, otherwise known as Joshua M. Smith. The soul purpose of my career is to push the boundries in doing what I feel is relevant to the market as well as extract various elements and trends to be able to offer them up in my own personal work. But let's be honest. I do what I love because I love it. Not because I have to do it, nor am forced to do it, but rather passionate about doing what I do. I firmly believe in having set style tones, yet a sense of diversity to make any various project unique to the demands that are set forth (Hydro's website). How it works Your design can be anything you wish, but do it only on BW. First step is to download the working template here(supplied as illustrator eps and photoshop tiff files). The design should be black and white. The dimensions for the sticker are 3" x 3" and must be at least 300dpi and must be designed in the CMYK color mode. When entering your design to the pool on Flickr, save it as a 72 dpi Jpeg 500 X 500 pixels and name it "Abdz Sticker - name of the art". The theme The artworks should be all black and white, a little reverence to our friend Hydro 74. Besides that, the theme is free, just watch out for the colors.
