melanie.truscot6 got their new t-shirt by running a design contest:
Cyber security malware illustration for hackers
Check out melanie.truscot6's T-shirt contest…
CyberCX is a full service cyber security company. This t-shirt design is for a t-shirt for our security testing teams (ethical hackers). We issue a t-shirt each year. Examples from previous years are included in the attachment. In terms of a theme … looking for something that riffs on the theme of Hydra… the mythical snake that grew two heads for every head that was cut off https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lernaean_Hydra / worms that when cut into pieces, are able to regrow as two new worms https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2018/11/06/663612981/these-flatworms-can-regrow-a-body-from-a-fragment-how-do-they-do-it-and-could-we…. The metaphor we want represented being that malware/viruses/attackers can multiply, regenerate, grow again and it’s a continuous focus on defeating them. Can’t have a corporate look, needs to be original illustration style; hacker-heavy metal feel. Should be more a mythical feel/look rather than realism. Examples of the styles we like are in the attachment. Design needs to reference (either overtly or through hidden elements) the CyberCX logo (words and icon can appear separately). This is our website: cybercx.com.au This design does not/ should not represent company colours (ie shouldn’t be a corporate look) Use of binary code numbers to represent shapes/concepts works well. Our target audience are professional penetration testers and information security defense practitioners. The dominant demographic is men aged 25-45, but there are people younger and older as well as many women. It is VERY important to us that we do not exclude our female colleagues, and so the design should avoid being masculine for the sake of appealing to our male employees.
Just the design (not website or phone number). Design needs to reference (either overtly or through hidden elements) the CyberCX logo (words and icon can appear separately) Our website: cybercx.com.au. Preferred print method is screen printing.

It all began with a design brief.

Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
melanie.truscot6 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
