The Design Should Include the following-
- A Black Chess Knight facing to the right. This is the first part of the design.
- As an option, I would like to see 2 Broad Sword Crossed behind the Knight, on top of an armored Shield, but can be added later, near end of contest.
Notes- Designer Has Free artistic flexibility on this chess Knight but Im looking for something:
- The Knight should be facing Right
- The Knight should clearly be a complete chess piece, it should be obvious what it is.
- The Knight Should be on Top of the Shield
- Crossed Swords between the Knight and the Shield would be ok, but not if it looks too busy.
- Modern (See Boise State University Logo for example)
- Remaining Simple (it cannot be too crazy or have too many small design elements)
I will be watching the contest closely, and what I would recommend is starting with just the Knight first to get it right, then adding the shield and swords if I am communicating with you. I will let you know if I like what I am seeing, and if you do not get any feedback, it means it is the wrong direction.
- Id like to Add a Ronin Symbol in there if you are awarded, but it is not part of the contest so please do not try to.
If you can do the above while maintaining a clean, powerful image. Focus on the Black Chess Knight. You will probably win this contest. Im always amazed at who does not actually read these descriptions so if you do, I want to work with you!
