I hate manipulation, you know the design I am talking about, it defies the whole bitcoin spirit.

Coinographic, in the future, don't let the community vote.

Just choose the designs yourself.

This was a learning experience for me, movin' on.

Who knows, maybe Coinographic is part of the manipulation? I mean check the 5 designs he chose? WTF, there where 10 other designs that were way better!

- It is correct that after submitting an identical hand-drawn coin early in the contest which I made, I had someone (on r/jobs4bitcoin) put it into a digital format so that I can better communicate my vision. The design is 100% mine; I simply had someone with the correct skills digitize it because that is not something I am skilled in. I even asked some of the other designers if they were willing to help me out.


How would you do this if you can't design anything in photoshop?

1)   They agree to work with us after the voting is complete until the final coin design is produced, no matter the amount of time this takes.  This includes the front & Rear of the coin as well as the hologram and packaging

The important thing of-course is communicating with Coinographic about the vision and design; I asked him early on if a hand drawn coin was acceptable and it was; i just had it replicated via Photoshop so that it is easier for voters to understand the design. This is a concept / design contest, great Photoshop skills aren't mandatory. I am of-course willing to work with Coinographic to get the final design should my concept win Smiley

I will be voting for # 9 by campycoin. Worldtreasurefinders made a very good case for this design and I tend to agree with him.  I enjoy the designs simplicity & lack of fluff.  Often, the most exquisite things in life are are ruined by adding complexity.  This design makes the link to luxury by association of gold bars and also would be unique to your company (uniqueness seemed to be an important criteria to the contest).  I don't think any of your competitors have done something like this.  With the simplicity, you shouldn't have any issues getting it minted either. Also... on a nerdy note it makes me think of bars of latinum from Star Trek. The real "precious" part is the latinum(bitcoin in our case;P) located inside of the bar. That's just me being goofy though! Tongue

Like many others, I really enjoyed Mr. Bau's design and it was tough not to pick it.  I liked his concept of the bitcoin symbol being created out of multiple gears working together to maintain the network (all pieces working together for a common goal).  At least that's how I interpretated it.  I thought it flowed together quite well. Ultimately, I was  worried about the design losing too much detail in the minting process and so opted for campy's less is more theme.  I also saw more of a connection to luxury with campy's design.

If I may, I'd like to make a few suggestions to Coinographic if they intend to do more design competitions as I see a lot of drama here.  I would completely take voting out of the equation.  I think it's great getting the community involved with your design, but you don't really need voting to do that.  Secondly, when you're deciding on the top five designs, really take your time to pick them.  At least sleep on it, having fresh eyes is always helpful.  I don't think a scale from 1 - 10 is a good enough evaluation either.  Write down specifically what you do or don't like about the concepts.  If you don't already, have a designer help you with this process.  Once you have your top 5, post the reasons for choosing the winners. If people understand why you made your choices, they'll be less likely to think you just picked at random.  You can then ask the community for feedback on the top 5 designs, but your company ultimately chooses the final design. This way you'll avoid all this, "I vote for #so&so", without any relevant feedback as to why they feel that way. I imagine you'd prefer quality, not quantity.

Lastly, I'd like to thank Coinographic for putting on this competition despite the hiccups.  I had a lot of fun participating. Thanks! Smiley

I think everyone should cut iawgoM some slack.
Its become a full on witch hunt with talk of Mafia and being in Cahoot's with coinographic.

Its all pretty ridiculous.

He is a graphic designer by trade and has submitted numerous designs to many different competitions. Whether you like his design or not is purely subjective and just a matter of opinion. 

One of the reasons I went looking for a different community last April when I first got into crypto was the hostility on this forum. People don't treat each other with respect and the way noobs are treated with contempt and ridiculed for asking questions everyone needs to answer is  disgusting.

All iawgoM has done is let some others know that there was a competition on and that he had entered a design. This isn't some kind of conspiracy you can't decide how others should vote. I would hope that everyone would vote on merit as I can't really see any benefit in voting for loyalty.

I actually really like iawgoMs design. I like the miner output in the hologram on the back as bitcoin is made secure through the miners endeavours on the blockchain. But to be fair I don't have to explain myself to anyone.

Design Four by bonksnp2

I do believe this coin will need to be 2 oz Solid Yellow Gold, so the black and white areas may need to be modified to be all one color, if chosen.

While it is possible to get White Gold, or blackened PVD coating, I think if you're going to buy a solid gold coin, you want it to look like an all solid .999 yellow gold with no other two tones or alloys.
