Design Challenge: Week 12

Every 2 weeks, the design team here at Fueled task themselves with a design challenge. The task at hand is fairly simple; we take a brief from a pool of suggestions and tackle it in just 2 hours. However, there are no winners in the design challenge. Taking a break from projects for a little while proves invaluable to us to share our ideas, explore our processes, and grow as designers. This week's submissions come with a heavy heart, as we say farewell to our beloved Principal Product Designer Glenn Hitchcock.

The Brief

Say goodbye to Glenn however you'd like.

The Submissions

James Lindsay

"Glenn likes tea and gin. I thought it only appropriate to create him a gin of his own -- infused with tea, of course.

The identity was inspired by Glenn's hometown of Lichfield - more specifically it's cathedral.

The logo is a replication of the cathedral's front window, and the lid is made from reclaimed pew wood.

All very swanky."

Emily Cressey

"I know Glenn is a fan of Murakami so I thought I'd design him a book cover of his own!

I used a quote from his old Instagram bio for the title along with his iconic spiral staircase and his famed Eames wooden bird for the main circular Murakami design."

Rob Palmer

This speaks for itself.

Mike Barton

"So for a little tribute I put together a simple piece. A Sketch UI with one of those annoying notifications for a missing font or a plugin update, but instead we're missing something much more notable. Good luck in everything Glenn, you're one of the best designers I've ever had the pleasure of working with."

Andrew Power

"Just a very straight forward portrait send-off from me! I wanted to create something with an accurate likeness and no gimmicks that could be used as an avatar. Created in illustrator with textured brushes to give it a more natural feel."

Ryan Murphy

"I know everything about Glenn, I've studied him for years. So for this I just thought, put all of that research into one piece.

I've been admiring the work of Coldwar Steve for a while now and wanted to play around in that medium, something as far removed from app design as I've treaded in a long time.

Had an awful lot putting this all together, with cues from Glenn's projects, personal life, private life and then things I just made up. Bye Glenn."

Sean Kerry

"I wanted to honour Glenn with a nice digital illustration of him. I used simple geometric shapes to build up the face and features. Although I don't think I quite captured his likeness I'm happy with the result. Thanks for the memories Glenn!"

Catherine Hopkins

"I got to meet Glenn for the first time at the London Summer Party this year, so thought it only fitting to take a photo from then and recreate it. Was lush being able to meet before he left and wishing him all the best "

And a submission from the man himself...

Glenn Hitchcock

Next Time

Extraordinary. Enthralling. Emotional. Everything you want from our design challenge. Goodbye Glenn, you will be sorely missed. Good luck in your journey.

However - the show MUST go on. Join us in a couple of weeks for our next challenge.
