2006 SOOB Logo Comp winner:: Benjamin Smith






SOOB is very proud to announce our 2006 Logo Competition winner ... Benjamin Smith.

Benjamin is a 23-year old final year graphic design student from Southbank TAFE. He's part of the live work studio being developed there called the Coloured Hats Studio.

"The idea behind my design was one of trying to create something free- flowing and individual," Benjamin said when talking about his design.

"I  found the relationship between water and ink to be a suitable way of  expressing this idea. I tried not to mimic other water/ink ideas that  I had seen used by other designers, and after a little experimenting  with my trusty inkjet printer, different stocks and good ol' Brisbane  tap water I came up with the design that got chosen."

Jason Grant from Inkahoots praised Benjamin's work as the most original of the 2006 Logo Comp entries.

Thanks to all the Brisbane and Australian designers who submitted an entry to the 2006 SOOB logo comp. We'll give everyone another chance to design SOOB's logo late next year.
