If Game of Thrones took over the corporate world, what would it look like?
DesignCrowd’s latest contest could answer just that. Inviting designers to put a medieval spin on some of their favourite logos saw 175,000 designers strap their thinking caps on.
Many well-known brands such as Google, Facebook, McDonald’s, Ikea and Microsoft all saw their brands touched-up with a Game of Thrones spin.
“Season four of Game of Thrones has kicked off, and we want to celebrate with a photoshop graphic design contest!” DesignCrowd said in its contest brief.
“We want you to turn company logos into Game of Thrones ‘house banners’ – think Goldman Sachs as the Lannister's, Exxon Mobil as the Dothraki or Google as Highgarden.”
Fourty-seven entries were received by the May 7 deadline.
The winning redesign was that of Google’s (below), with the photoshop design by Rijan.
B&T is currently awaiting comment from the companies on the designs.
Of the 175,000 designers who took part, none of them had an affiliation with the brands, B&T was told.
Below are some of the other designs, or check out all the entries.
