yeah suppose the 'a' is very dodgy.

also Shicon chose 5 runners up and they are awful.

this was mine, what ever happened to a good concept. its 'trying' to look like its lipstick and also is perfectly mirrored. i call it the mirrored lipstick logo >.<, maybe not the best executed logo in hindsight seen as its for a digital magazine

Don't worry about it mate, I see all sorts of entries getting picked and shortlisted for competitions that I just don't get. Sure, they look nice, but where's the idea behind it?

I recently got shortlisted in a competition to design a D&AD lecture poster in Manchester. I didn't win (I never expected to, I was competing against 3rd year students) but I was surprised by some of the shortlisted entries. There was no real concept behind them, they just designed nice looking, by the book posters.

Sadly it seems most people are favouring aesthetics over idea.

* EDIT*

I liked the concept behind yours by the way. I would have written it in actual lipstick and scanned it in, though I bet the judges wouldn't 'get it' anyway :p
