Create a high-quality infographic that illustrates the genesis of our platform, the working tech that has been created and how Komodo has been built differently, and deliberately, from the very beginning to ensure security, scalability and interoperability. This is why we refer to the architecture, because Komodo was designed to overcome common problems like congestion, governance and attacks that other platforms did not foresee or prevent, from the beginning. This is Komodo DNA.

Interim KMD Colour Palette If you’ve not been included in the first round it’s because the submission hadn’t been made when the team reviewed. Don’t worry though because we’re organising hangouts and further feedback to help.
#001Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by thesudio. There’s a lot of good points made, however, these would work better if there is a clear narrative and flow to the information being presented. Otherwise, it can be overwhelming and confusing to the reader. The #1 objective is to visually depict the architecture story and how KMD is redefining blockchain platform architecture.
#002Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by thesudio. We like that there is a clear structure and clear messaging aligned to each of the 5 pillars. However, the infographic should be focused on telling the architecture story vs the pillars.
#003Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by VolsenVols. Love how you’ve incorporated our existing graphic design elements into the infographic. This is heading in the right direction and the level of copy and content are well balanced. It would be nice to align this closer to the architecture story and to expand on the different layers of our technology using the same style.
#004Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by dexter_laabo. Needs to tell the architecture story. This looks more like it took information from our current website. “Anonymous” is not a key aspect of our technology that we’re focusing on.
#005Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by savandra. The visuals are strong but the narrative could be stronger. It would be nice to align this closer to the architecture story and to expand on the different layers of our technology using the same style.
#007Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by cryptol1. Doesn’t depict the architecture narrative. Inaccurately describes cross-chain tech as “proprietary”. Simplification has the wrong messaging associated, should be white-label focused. This is considered more of a graphics versus an infographic. Needs to be more comprehensive.
#008Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by pacosenda. We like the unique design style and approach taken. Doesn’t follow the architecture narrative. Should be expanded out as it is a bit short on content with no clear flow or narrative.
#009Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by jeanetteLine. Great level of detail and thought on the layout and content. Doesn’t, however, cover the architecture story. Would be preferred if the design direction reflects interim colour and style vs. legacy KMD. The roadmap should be avoided. Looks like they borrowed more from the website than the guidelines.
#010Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by Meyse. Very creative way to explain and layout the content. This could be expanded out more to encompass the entire architecture story. Cross-chain verifications/smart contracts, blockchain bridging need to be incorporated in.
#014Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by Limiter02. Good thought has gone into the copy, however, there’s way too much of it. Would prefer stronger visuals and utilizing a more visual storytelling approach. Doesn’t follow the architecture story. Remove the lizard.
#015Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by piptothemoon. Great thought into visually representing key points. Needs to be expanded out to incorporate the architecture story, but this is heading in the right direction from a visual storytelling POV.
#016Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by thecryptofoundation. Love the timeline approach, and mostly followed the guidelines and architecture story. Also, like the incorporation of accomplishments at the end. Would like to get the stock imagery used to reflect our interim colour palette. Not all visuals match what is being represented in the copy.
#017Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by jsteneros. As discussed in the Zoom call, this graphic is really solid but a little heavy on the copy. Would be good to see more visualizations of the info. This graphic hits on some of the important messages (e.g. Komodo is built differently from other blockchain platforms and solves many of the issues that first-gen platforms are struggling with) but it would be great if there was more information about Komodo’s architecture and how Komodo is different from other platforms.
#018Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by gravigocrypto. This one was also discussed in the Zoom call. Outstanding visuals and overall design. The info follows the architecture story well but could be stronger if the 3 layers of Komodo’s architecture were tied together into one, coherent visual. It’s a challenging task but that’s part of the contest : )
#019Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by PacoSenda. This is a really creative infographic, which is great! However, we’d really like to see the visuals a bit more in line with fonts and color palette described above in the “First Round of Feedback” section. Also, as with the feedback for many of the infographic submissions, sticking to the Komodo architecture story would be best.
#020Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by emmanmalaman. The visuals are pretty cool but this one misses most of our core messaging. It would be much stronger if it followed the architecture story and touched on the info provided in this post. There’s definitely potential here but it needs some work.
#021Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by immimidada. The colors and visuals here are spot-on. It’s also really great that it sets up the problem and then presents the Komodo solution. However, the problem and solution aren’t defined exactly the way we’d like. Check out the architecture narrative to learn more, and try to follow that story a bit more closely.
#022Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by mohitgfx3. This one is a bit heavy on the KMD logos. We’re really hoping to see a visualization of Komodo’s infrastructure architecture. As with the feedback for many of the infographics, it would be best to re-read Komodo’s architecture story and try to stick to that as much as possible. Using images from the current website is also not a great approach, as we’re preparing to launch a new site in the coming months.
#023Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by u/sayonara_girl. Some of the visuals are cool! It’s missing the narrative we’re looking for. In general, less copy and more visual storytelling would improve this graphic a lot. We’d like to see a smooth, linear flow of information. Take another look at the architecture story and try to follow that narrative.
#024Infographic Link//Reddit Post Link by brunopugens. This one follows the narrative well! But it’s a little heavy on the copy. It would be much stronger if the architecture was displayed visually, rather than explained with text. Also, the design is cool but it’s difficult to read b/c the perspective of the text is skewed. It’s a really cool idea but might be better to put the text flat for the sake of readability and clarity.
We hosted a round of live feedback sessions via Zoom. The recording is here:
The first block in the KMD blockchain was mined just under two years ago, on September 13, 2016 to 9:04 PM. Since then, Komodo has demonstrated a commitment to innovation and established a history of execution.
Cryptomiso.com is a website that ranks 866 different blockchain projects according to the Github commit history of that project’s most popular repo. Komodo is ranked #1 overall for Github commits over the last 12 months.
China's Ministry Research Initiative regularly ranks Komodo in the top 10.
Over the last few days I got increasingly interested in Raiblocks. I have been thoroughly enjoying the project as well as the dynamic of this tight-knit community. And like a lot of people on this platform, I wanted to give a bit of my time, hoping it would help the project move forward. As a fresh outta school brand designer in search of new adventures, the prospect of imagining the identity of a revolutionary type of currency was really exciting. This might be a long read, but it's got pictures! If you just want to see the result : 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5.
First and foremost, Rai is a currency
(I know a fair amount of people find the simplified name off-putting, apologies!) Rai has the potential to become the currency for peer-to-peer transactions. But to be considered as such and to reach mass-adoption, I believe it was crucial to first think about its monetary symbol. Not many competitors have one. Litecoin is using the west Slavic 'L with stroke', and the Bitcoin community made their own. (Although it took years for the unicode consortium to add it to their code.) I thought it’d be best to avoid the hassle and instead to follow Litecoin’s path by using an already existing and accessible symbol. The ‘R with stroke’ uppelower case pair used in the Kanuri alphabet immediately caught my attention ⟶ Ɍ. The uppercase symbol could be a primary monetary unit, while its lower case counterpart ‘ɍ’ could perhaps represent a smaller unit.
Behind the currency
Colin's team will be in need of a visual identity, which I believe should be somehow linked to the symbol of the currency. What makes Rai special to me (and you) is Colin’s block-lattice technology, seemingly simple. I came up with this mark which aims to reflect its uniqueness. I used the typeface Aften Screen. I particularly enjoyed its subtle friendliness, and interestingly, this font was made only with screens in mind. Can’t get any better than that for a cryptocurrency. :-) I tweaked the wordmark so The ‘R’ becomes an ‘Ɍ’, while two gradients were added to echo the block-lattice structure of the currency. And that’s it.
Exploring the concept
This mobile version layout is an (on-going) experimentation with colors (I haven’t decided on the full color scheme yet), but it was mainly a way for me to make a custom Rai cross icon. I came to realize that the simplicity of the mark could become a strength of Rai’s identity. So I proceeded to play around with words and icons. NOTE: As Colin stated in his AMA, people have an issue with the pronunciation, which could be a problem when it comes to brand recognition. « Pay with Rai » is, I think, a way to bypass this issue while keeping the name. I come from a non english speaking country, but I believe these words are simple enough to be understood by most. Being a sucker for subtlety, I also made a couple of animations with the wordmark, which could be used on the website’s header. (The .gif should play on loop, but the host doesn't allow it somehow), I wanted to make a loading icon and some other stuff, but tiredness came my way. I Hope you will enjoy these visuals as I much as I enjoyed making them! :-)
I know I’m required to write this down, otherwise I might be here forever. Let me apologize for any errors, confusion, nausea or vomiting, epileptic seizures, trouble sleeping, or any other side affects you may experience from reading this novel. If someone appears in your dreams claiming to be me, please notify the nearest member of the Mushroom Cult. An imposter armed with Twitter bots is on the loose. Be warned, he only has ill intentions. Okay, here I go. I was wandering through the woods when that gang of minion bears ambushed me. Honestly, if this whole thing is anyone’s fault, it’s those responsible for my false imprisonment, and that damn lawyer for drafting me into the labor force. Maybe then, we could have avoided the whole apocalyptic end-of-the-world situation. But I’m getting ahead of myself. There I was walking peacefully, lawfully, and responsibly through the woods. I don’t remember walking into any woods, and I know for a fact there are none in the area I live in. I just suddenly found myself strolling under the thick ceiling of these large pine trees. It was as if I had just woken up and started walking. What I do remember is avidly enjoying myself in my new-found surroundings, the scent of pine was thick. There was a cool breeze that made the air comfortable. Sunlight could barely penetrate the trees, and a low fog added to the mystic of these woods. Pine needles crunched under every step I took. I was drifting aimlessly through these woods observing the trees. I touch one of the trunks, and my eyes followed it to the top. The unusually wide branches made it impossible to see the top of the tree. It seemed to stretch on forever. I could barely see the sky. The voices in my head whispered, this place was extremely curious. I moved past the tree, and stopped to observe a growth, not twenty feet from the base of tree I had touched. I bent down. What was growing was a short mushroom, maybe three inches tall. It was bright red, with white spots dotting the top. It shined in the darkness of the woods, reflecting any sunlight that was strong enough to reach the ground. It was beautiful. The voices in my head became exuberant; they all agree I should pick it up. As I went down to pluck it from the earth, just before I touched it, a sharp cry, in a language I could not understand, pierced the air. “DARVEN-KRAX-GHOUL!” I turned around. There were six bears. Well, at least I assumed they were bears. All of them were under three feet tall. If Chewbacca had married a midget, sorry, little person, these guys would be their children. As hilarious as they looked, they were all fully armed with swords, metal body-armor, and helmets. I froze, puzzled, meeting their gaze. What I assumed was the leader was one-step in front of the other bears with his paw extended pointing at me. I wasn’t all that surprised by that sight. I’ve seen a lot, and I mean A LOT, of strange things. This event made more sense to me than what I’d had for breakfast that morning, which I hadn’t remembered eating. Five second pasted in this standoff. Tension was building in the air. The leader never lowered his paw, and again bellowed that God-awful cry. “DARVEN-KRAX-GHOUL!” I made a face of disgust. This was obnoxious and annoying. It was really putting a damper on my whole nature/forest experience. “Right back at you buddy.” I said, giving him the finger. I turned back down to pick up the mushroom, that I was sure was trying to give me all the answers to the universe. The moment its stem left the soil, all hell broke loose. “AH! AH! AH! AH! AH!” chanted the bears. As I turned back around, they charged me from a distance of thirty feet. Not once did their chant cease. Before I had a chance to run, brace myself, or even pocket the magic mushroom, the gang of bears jumped on me. Knocking the mushroom and me to the ground, causing my head to bounce off of a tree root. That hurt, I’m pretty sure I was bleeding. The voices in my head were down for the count. These toddler-sized furries were now crawling all over my body. One of these annoying little pricks was right in my face holding down my shoulders chanting, “AH! AH! AH! AH! AH!” Its breath fogged up my glasses. The whole time they were tying me up with a rope. I got really annoyed with the bear in my face, and started chanting back at him, “AH! AH! AH! AH! AH!” I yelled back at him much more forcefully. He scurried down my body away from my face. Before I had even a minute to realize what was going on, the bears had me completely tied up. They left a loose end of rope at my feet so they could drag me. The leader started speaking gibberish in a very authoritative tone. The persistent chanting stopped. He was now barking orders at his subordinates, who quickly jumped to action. All six bears were now dragging me over their shoulders with the leader taking the front. Apparently, they have a chant for dragging people that is different from their attack chant. The leader started it off, “MA! MA! MA! MA! MA!” The rest of the bears followed suit in cadence. They began to pull me. I didn’t say a word. I didn’t want to give these heathens any satisfaction for their work. I worked my hands out of the rope enough to stick both of my middle fingers up. The bears had no reaction to my gesture. Occasionally, I would do my best to throw off their chanting rhythm. I would yell, “MA!” at instances where it wouldn’t line up with the rest of the chant. It worked a little, a couple of those savages got thrown off and confused. I stared up at the roof of the woods. I still couldn’t see the tops of the trees and could hardly see the color of the sky. I think it was pink. The small, hairy militia pressed on. I lost track of time, but eventually I could see the sky, it was pink. I was out of the woods. I could no longer feel pine needles drag under my back, soft grass had taken its place. The trees had disappeared. From the ground, I hadn’t a clue where I was, or what my surroundings consisted of, but after my imprisonment, in later events, I got a lay of the land. I had been brought into the realm ruled by the power known as the Toilet Wizard, ruler of the bears. (It is unknown to me why the Toilet Wizard is called such a thing, or why he is the ruler of the bears. It is said he is undefeated in Wii Sports Bowling, with a record of 456-0.) The Toilet Wizard’s domain consisted of a circular clearing, surrounded by a wall of trees. The circle had a diameter of about half a mile. In the center was a hill where a small castle, about the size of a small supermarket, sat on top. It was square, with four towers in each corner. It was made of an ancient gray stone. I of course at the time knew none of this. I just knew six armed bears, who were now dragging me up hill, had kidnapped me, which I assumed was due to the mushroom. Once at the top of the hill, the bears stopped their chant. They had brought me to the portcullis of the castle. Which is just the gate. It was currently raised. The bears stood me up, and in one motion, freed me of my bondage. Before I could enjoy my freedom, four new bears appeared and worked quickly to restrain my wrists behind my back. Two bears then grabbed my arms and led me inside the castle. We immediately took a right. The ceiling was low, and the hallway was dark. The only source of light was the small ember emitted from the torches hanging on the walls. The walk down the hallway took forever. The castle wasn’t that big, like I said before, it was about the size of a small supermarket, but we walked straight down that hallway for six hours. I remember glancing at my watch for only a second before being restrained. It had been 4:10pm when we began the walk. By the time we approached a small wooden door at the end of the hall, and I had been tossed into their dungeon, it was 10:13pm. I had been more or less shoved into this dark, windowless room. Like the hallway, only torches hung on the walls. I was laying on my face trying to recover from being thrown into prison. Luckily, the bears had removed my restraints before locking the door with a loud bolt. My feet ached from the walk so I sat against the stone wall. At this point I noticed I had two dungeon mates. One was obviously a knight, dressed in full chainmail armor, and had a helmet that hid his face. I thought he looked like he could’ve had a role in Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail. He sat with his back against the back wall of the room. The other prisoner was a full-grown minotaur. He was sitting down, but he looked like he was easily seven feet tall. He only wore a clump of furs and leathers held in place by a giant metal belt around his waist. His upper body was massive, rippling with muscles, like Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime. The horns of his bull head were sharp and curved. His snout was pierced with a gold ring. He sat adjacent to the knight, his legs criss-crossed. “What’s up?” asked the Minotaur, his voice sounded surprisingly human. He sounded like he could have easily had said to me, “Hi, welcome to Chili’s.” “Hey” I said with a quick wave. I cracked a smile. I was hoping my time spent in this dungeon wouldn’t lack good conversation. “I’m Dave.” said the Minotaur, pointing to himself. “That’s Groggoniche.” He pointed at the knight. “Russ” I said pointing at myself Groggoniche gave a casual wave, but he didn’t say anything. “What are you in for?” asked Dave. “Taking a walk, picking mushrooms I guess.” I said casually. “What about you?” “Unpaid parking tickets.” Dave looked a little embarrassed, but threw his hooves up as if to imply, “What are you gonna do?” “Bummer, what about you man?” I motioned towards Groggoniche. “I got stopped again last night coming home from an office party. This is my fifth DUI, I’m fairly certain they’ll bathe me in fire again.” Groggoniche said this very grimly. “It happens to the best of us.” assured Dave. “Where you from?” asked Groggoniche. “Dallas” I replied. Groggoniche laughed, “Ha ha, I’m sorry.” I was offended, and became defensive, “Why? Where are you from?” Groggoniche chuckled again and said smoothly, “Ha ha ha not Dallas.” “Oh.” I said flatly. Dave, in an effort to reignite conversation, asked, “Does anyone watch Game of Thrones?” Before I could even comment, a whole army of bears had charged the dungeon door. They were like angry ants, moving in unison. “Oh great.” said Groggoniche, sinking his head. The bears swarmed us. Chanting in gibberish as usual. We were all led out of the dungeon and into the hall. It was a frenzy of fast paced chanting as we were walked down the hall. This time the trip only took around thirty seconds. We turned left and were chaperoned into a large courtroom. The light was surprisingly bright. The carpet was gray; the whole room was furnished in a polished pine, assumedly cut from the surrounding forest. The “ceiling”, if it could even be called that, had no light fixtures, it was like staring up into space. I could see stars and constellations, and I even saw a comet whip by from the far corner of the room. The entire universe seemed over-head. The jury box consisted of bears of all sizes. Some smaller than the ones who attacked me, and some larger than grizzly bears. They roared and hissed as the three of us made our way down the aisle. We sat at a table before the judge. A plaque posted on the front of the judge’s bench read, “THE HONORABLE TOILET WIZARD. RULER OF WEST WUSSELLWAND. CHAMPION OF WII SPORTS BOWLING.” Sitting in the seat was a short old man in a purple bathrobe, his skin pale and worn. His hair and beard were a sharp, silver, long, and unkempt. He wore wire-framed glasses that were hidden under the shade of his tall blue wizard hat. He seemed incredibly agitated with the three of us. His icy stare seemed to cut through us as we took our seats. Tension was building, and I began to sweat. After three minutes of the silent, agitated gaze from the Toilet Wizard, and the continuous uproar of the bear jury, our lawyer appeared. The doors swung open dramatically, making a loud banging noise. A middle-aged man, wearing a navy-blue wetsuit, began power walking down the aisle to where the three of us sat. “I’m so sorry your Honor” began the man, “those damned school kids held me up again.” The Toilet Wizard let out an impatient huff. He was not at all amused with me, Dave, Groggoniche, or this estranged man who was late because he was being mugged by schoolchildren. Our lawyer opened his palm towards the Toilet Wizard, fingers extended, “Five minutes, please! Let me council my clients.” The Toilet Wizard motioned his hand forward, looked up annoyed, he hated being there. The man shook each one of our hands, he seemed to be in a hurry. “How ya doing boys, I’m here to get you out of this. All you boys have to do is follow my lead; no one is going to get eaten by the Pit Lizard on my watch!” “What?” exclaimed Dave. Panic flashed across his bull shaped face. He was trembling. Groggoniche dropped his head at this talk of the Pit Lizard. “Hey!” yelled back our lawyer. “Don’t you worry; you’re all going to be just fine!” He pulled out three cards, and handed us each one. “I’m a professional!” I looked at the card. It read, “Richard Waterpants, Attorney at Law. Specializing in Pit Lizard Defense.” I had no idea what a Pit Lizard was, but based on the looks of Dave and Groggoniche, I really hoped that Attorney Waterpants knew his stuff. “Everything we need to get you out of this is in this briefcase.” Attorney Waterpants slammed a briefcase, that I had not noticed he was carrying, onto the table. “By the end of this, all four of us will be drinking Pomegranate La Croix on the beaches of the Magenta Sea.” He seemed extremely confidant, which lifted my spirits, and ended my sweat. “Why are we all being charged together? What am I being charged for?” I demanded to know. Our lawyer chuckled, “Yeah, right, like you don’t know. All I can say is I’m really glad I’m not you.” He slapped me on the back. “All three of you are being tried together because it’s the end of the year. The Toilet Wizard is trying to get everyone through the system. It’s either get tried together, or run out of time and face the Pit Lizard without trial.” He pointed at me authoritatively, “They’re doing you a favor pal.” The Toilet Wizard spoke in a language I could not understand. His face red, we had obviously exceeded his patience. “What is he saying?” I whispered to my attorney. Waterpants’ face turned white, “You can’t understand him? Oh Christ!” He reached into his pocket and pulled out something wrapped in cling-wrap. He quickly unwrapped the plastic. What was inside was absolutely horrid. It appeared to be a PB and J sandwich, only it was green, dotted with mold, and it reeked of what smelled like gasoline. As I opened my mouth to ask questions, Waterpants shoved the whole thing into my mouth, and made me chew it. I nearly puked, but I managed to swallow it. The room began to spin; the voices in my head were in a panic. I was sure I was going to fall out of my chair. I grabbed the edge of the table to keep myself grounded. After about thirty seconds of this misery, the room began to focus. The voices silenced. I could hear the jury. They no longer spoke their gibberish language, “FEED THEM TO THE PIT LIZARD!” they cried. The Toilet Wizard banged his gavel, “Enough of this delay! The Pit Lizard grows hungry!” The jury box cheered at this statement. “Your Honor,” began Waterpants, “my clients are being held on charges that should be considered criminal!” “They are criminals!” yelled the Toilet Wizard. “The knight is being charged with his fifth DUI this year!” Groggoniche crossed his arms and shrugged. “The Minotaur hasn’t paid a single parking ticket since 2005!” The Toilet Wizard pointed his gavel at Dave. Dave looked embarrassed. The Toilet Wizard then turned his attention towards me. “And you!” his angry gaze was sharp and pierced my soul, “You stand accused by the World Window of bringing eminent destruction to the entire Realm of Wussellwand!” There was an uproar from the jury following this statement. I hadn’t a clue to what I had just been accused of. “My client is completely ignorant of this accusation!” Waterpants sprang quick to my defense. “He was found wandering in the woods, causing no harm or destruction!” “Trespassing! He was trespassing! Not only that, but on my domain!” The Toilet Wizard was fuming. “Regardless of his current or past intentions, the World Window has spoken! To question the World Window is a crime punishable by Pit Lizard as well!” The Toilet Wizard bent down behind the bench, and emerged with a computer monitor. Silence fell within the court. He faced the monitor towards the court, and slowly, Windows 95 began to boot up on the screen. After a long pause, that seemed to last an eternity, a desktop with a background picture of the Toilet Wizard in sunglasses on a beach appeared. There was only one icon on the screen. A word document. The Toilet Wizard clicked on the document file. The file opened a page with a single line, typed in comic sans, number twelve font, “Russ Jackson will cause the apocalypse ;)” I was wildly confused. The jury gasped. My lawyer turned white. “Indisputable evidence!” the Toilet Wizard swung his arm back and forth punctuating each word. “What say you?” The Toilet Wizard slammed his hands a top the bench, red with rage. “One last piece of evidence, your Honor!” Waterpants was sweating as he faced the briefcase to open towards the Toilet Wizard. He flicked open the case. The only thing inside was a crumbled-up piece of paper with “Lol No he didn’t” written in sharpie. There was a roar of fury from the jury; they simply could not cope with this somehow groundbreaking evidence. My lawyer smiled weakly at the Toilet Wizard. The Toilet Wizard snarled his face in disgust. “And where did this so called ‘evidence’(He used air quotes around “evidence”) come from?” “From the high prophet Bernicus, leader of the Mushroom Cult, reigning world champion of Rock Band.” Waterpants seemed desperate. “Bernicus” pondered the Toilet Wizard, leaning back in his chair, “these are his words?” “Yes!” cried Waterpants. “Upon the trespass arrival of the human” he pointed towards me, “the prophecy was declared.” “The World Window and Bernicus conflict!” announced the Toilet Wizard, spreading his arms wide. “There is much to be considered! I must ponder this!” the Toilet Wizard closed his eyes and began to rub his temples. Silence once again fell upon the court. After ten minutes of silence and self-reflection, the Toilet Wizard sprang to life. “Labor!” declared the Toilet Wizard. “The human, among these two other heathens, will not be fed to the Pit Lizard!” The jury let out a very disappointed cry. “Fret not!” cried the Toilet Wizard, “the human, the knight, and the minotaur, will all work within the southern BitCoin mines for the next one-hundred years! Death will not come to any of them! Hard labor will prevent them from any wrong doings!” “Yes!” said our lawyer, putting his fist in the air in victory. As long as we weren’t fed to the Pit Lizard he considered it a win. “Pleasure serving you boys and good luck!” he shook each one of our hands again, grabbed his briefcase, and sprinted out of the courtroom, with his flippers slapping the ground. Dave and Groggoniche look sick. They were not as thrilled by the verdict as Waterpants was. Groggoniche sank his head, Dave looked like he was going to be sick. I was sweating again. “The chances we survive the first week of working the mines are slim, I’d feel better taking my chances with the Pit Lizard.” said Dave. Groggoniche let out a sigh, “Man I really wish they’d just peel my skin off, like they promised to do last time.” “Rise!” demanded the Toilet Wizard, pointing at us. We all stood to attention. A gang of bears entered the court. “Take these workers to the Southern Stop! Issue them chariots to aid in their journey!” The bears seized us, and we were taken out of the court. Although I knew I could understand the bears, they said nothing as we walked down the dark hall into an even darker room. The room was pitch black. I had no idea how big the room actually was. A bear flipped on a light switch, a spotlight shone in the center of the room. Three BMX bikes were sitting under the light. “Chariots” said one of the bears pointing towards the bikes. Another bear approached us with a piece of paper in his hand. He gave it to Groggoniche. “Map” said the bear tapping the paper in Groggoniche’s hand. The “map” was a crudely drawn on notebook paper. There was a circle with a square in the center, which I assumed represented the Toilet Wizard’s domain. A line drawn in red marker snaked from the drawn square, to the lower right corner of the paper. “Wait here.” said one final bear, pointing to the end of the red line, punctuated with an X. The bears then pushed us towards the bikes. Another bear hit a button on the wall that I had not previously seen, a garage door opened to the outside world. In the distance, the trees stretched towards the sky, which was now blue. The grass was green and lush. We all mounted the bikes. I got the black one. I was thoroughly confused, but the voices in my head were calm. “Go.” said the bears, pointing outside. Groggoniche peddled first, taking off down the hill. Dave and I were in close pursuit. The sun was warm, and its rays highlighted the colors around us. The clouds above us rolled off into the distance. Our bikes rolled smoothly through the clearing. We neared the tree line and I watched Groggoniche disappear into the darkness of the woods. I followed closely behind along with Dave. The darkness of the woods encompassed us. The ride became bumpy as we traversed roots and over growth. Groggoniche was gaining distance. Apparently, the knight was extremely skilled on a BMX bike. I did my best to keep up with him. Dave was struggling too. I could hear his breath become heavy as his powerful Minotaur legs peddled along. After what felt like many hours, we reached a small clearing. Groggoniche stopped and let his bike fall to the ground. I was seconds behind him, and Dave soon followed. I was exhausted, struggling to catch my breath, sweat made my t-shirt stick to my skin, my glasses were fogging up from the heat radiating off my face. “Where are we?” I asked. I looked around; the clearing wasn’t a perfect circle like the Toilet Wizard’s domain. It was an irregular shape. The trees made the area almost claustrophobic. The grass was just as green and as lush as the grass that grew near the castle. There was nothing here. “Is this where the BitCoin mine is?” I asked confused, looking around. “What? No.” said Groggoniche. “This is the bus stop that takes us there.” “What bus stop?” I asked, I couldn’t see anything but grass and trees. “The one right there.” Dave pointed behind me. I turned around. A red bench resting on concrete sat on the edge of the clearing, the sunlight seemed to reflect off it. “We have to take a bus there?” I was puzzled. “What’s to stop us from taking these bikes somewhere else?” I gestured towards the bikes. They had disappeared. “They’ve returned home.” said Groggoniche. “Besides, we’re still in the domain of the Toilet Wizard; he knows every move we make.” He pointed towards the trees. “They speak to him.” The wind blew, and the branches of each tree shook. I shuddered at this. “What now?” I asked. “We sit and wait.” said Dave. He and Groggoniche walked towards the red bench. I followed cautiously behind. The three of us crammed into the bench, it was a tight fit, but we were all seated. I was sandwiched in the middle. Time slowed down. I stared up to the sky. The clouds were creeping at a slow pace above. The blue of the sky was slowly turning pink. I could see the planet Saturn become more and more visible. The voices in my head were making inaudible whispers. I was tired from the trial and the journey. The world began to spin and I felt myself slowly drift to sleep. It felt as if a warm blanket had been wrapped around me. I was felt so serene. As my eyelids dropped, Dave clapped in my face. “No!” he yelled at me. All sleepiness left my body. “Don’t fall asleep! You can’t live with the consequences!” “What?” I couldn’t piece together what he was saying. “He’s right.” said Groggoniche. I looked over at him he was leaning back, puffing on an e-cigarette through the holes on his helmet. He casually looked off in the distance. “What flavor is that?” I pointed at his e-cig. He turned his head towards me without saying a word and threw it over his shoulder. Before it hit the ground, it exploded with a loud crack! “What the —” but before I could finish my sentence, our bus appeared.
25 AUD or 2500 JPY minimum, with 25 AUD or 2500 JPY max tip
2 weeks of conversation and planning
I can make a company, service, or product logo that is free to use and reuse commercially. Samples of my previous work are available here. Depending on how complex the logo should be, I should be able to complete it in two weeks or sooner.
Color coordination or specified color scheme (with Pantone numbers)
Optional: Horizontal, square, vertical, and icon versions
Optional: Business card concepts
I will export the logo as PNGs at any size, as well as an SVG file. While PNG files are standard image files readable on any device, SVG files are vector files, making them easily editable, infinitely scalable, and Illustrator compatible. According to DesignQuote’s HowMuchDoesALogoCost.com, this kind of work will typically set you back about $1000 for a student or offshore designer all in all. I'm doing it for at least 25 Australian Dollars or 2500 yen (whichever is cheaper at the time), with a maximum pay-for-what-you-like of up to 25 AUD or 2500 JPY more.
I have a wealth of volunteer graphic design experience, giving me an edge over typical people who want something designed. I took a course on color coordination at a university while in high school, and my free fonts have been downloaded a total of 497711 times as of 2017-12-25. For something more playful, I have a host of osu! skins available online.
Why the price?
I’m a hobbyist
Logo design is my hobby, not my day job. And let’s face it, a casual isn’t enough for all purposes, but hopefully it’ll be much, much better than what the average person with an idea for a company, service, or product can produce. You’ll be the judge.
My tools are free software
I don’t use Photoshop or Illustrator for my logo designs, but Inkscape, a free vector graphics editor. But just because the software is free, it doesn’t mean I can’t make great designs with it. In fact, the years of design experience should show.
I can’t do 3D computer graphics
That being said, the closest thing to 3D computer graphics I’ve made is modeling buildings on SketchUp in high school introductory architecture class. That's not to say I can't make logos that pop out, though.
I can't make animated logos
While I have experience in After Effects, putting enough time to make an animated logo would probably be outside the scope of a hobby.
Methods of payment
Since I'm still 18, and PayPal Japan won't let me accept payments until I'm 20, here are some methods of payment you can use:
[Meta] Suggestion to mods: Text in orange (using r/btc's new CSS style settings) can be hard for a lot of people to read
I use a lot of links in some of my posts, so I'm really starting to notice this problem. For example, here is a post where I used a lot of links. The links are all in orange text - which can make them hard to read for a lot of people. Successful graphic designers know that on a white background you should use dark font colors, for maximum readability. Personally, I like the original default Reddit CSS style settings - they're clean and simple and easy to read. No need to be different just for the sake of being different. Maybe you wanted to use orange because it ties in with many of the logos for Bitcoin. That's fine, but perhaps the orange could be used on other page elements (buttons, icons, graphics, etc) - not on the text itself. Sorry to bring this up - thanks for any feedback!

Ok i will start the thread with some ideas from the wiki i dont know how made this ideas but they are great. Allow donators to receive a special name/title or a name in a custom font/color. This will offer a small incentive for people to donate while not making the server P2P. An example would be having people who donate $1-5 receive a charcoal icon around their name, and those who donate $6-10 receive a iron icon around their name, $10-15 receive a gold icon around their name, etc) Also, a casino building in the town would be AMAZING! It could feature slot machines, the minefield game, roulette, blackjack, and maybe a weekly lottery (these ideas were implemented in the now dead bitvegas bitcoin minecraft server). Users would have to spend their emeralds in the casino which would remove a good amount of emeralds in circulation (since these games always favor the house). If you want you can tell other ideas here
I made a Deadmau5 skin with custom honeycomb icons and a live notepad!
In the waves of insurmountable amounts of hype leading up to going to the LotsOfShowsInaRow concert tomorrow (Or Saturday depending on weather) I decided to make a rainmeter skin! I'll give some pics and an overview, then get into deets! http://imgur.com/a/rHQ0A That's what it looks like on both monitors! http://imgur.com/EoFLLXB The live notepad and Visualizer! So first off, I really wish I could've used the red and black theme from W:/2016 but I could only find a good double-monitor background in green. I wanted to ditch DMT and use one background this time, which was semi-successful (because there was no red theme :( ). Other than that, I made custom green-and-black honeycomb icons to fit with the theme, and can post them if people want. Colors used:

This is a CSS theme to style subreddits. It was made for two purposes: to make a subreddit more new-user-friendly, and to give more visibility to the submit button. It's for people who want a clean, custom CSS theme without having to play too much with code. It is also ideal for subreddits that are not in English, since there's no hacky CSS injected text.
It's made up of a stylesheet and a sprite image. It uses most of Reddit's default font sizes, colors, and the silk icons collection, the same Reddit uses in several places. The idea was to make a theme that doesn't clash with the frontpage, but tried to improve readability and general space division.
This theme now supports np.reddit.com (/noparticipation) to help subreddits keep their content safer when linked to from an external source. Nothing is required to enable this; if a subreddit links to your post using np.reddit.com/[link] the CSS will automatically work.
A normal blockquote has this gray box. Any text that's continuously blockquoted shares the same box.
Separate blockquote groups with a horizontal line to make them different boxes.
You can change a box's color by placing a specific empty header type right before making the blockquote. To make this box red, an empty H6 element is used. The code looks like this: ###### (#h6-red) > This is a box.
To make a yellow box, use an empty H5 element as we did before: ##### (#h5-yellow) > This is a box
To make a green box, use an empty H4 element as we did before: #### (#h4-green) > This is a box
This is a title
This box starts with an H1 element inside of it that serves as its header. Notice the indentation of all text contained in it. > #This is a title > This is a box
This box starts with an H2 element, and has an icon. The icon is added to left of any sidebar element by linking it to a specific code: > ##[Title with an icon](#icon-exclamation) > This is a box A list of the icons available is available here
Normal text can be added after a separating horizontal line, and it will appear as it normally would. To add a box after this, just start a new blockquote. Remember: horizontal lines are only needed when separating blockquote groups.
