Hi there one and all.
Another glorious theme competition has come to a close and we celebrate the winning designer by doing little jumps for joy and screaming HOORAY!!!!
The Justice League theme competition was always going to be a closely contested battle between some really motivated designers, however only one could triumph and I’m happy to say that the choice is a design that will undoubtedly become one of the few “Springleap.com classics”.
Congratulations go out to WolFox for his absolutely killer cool retro Rabobi, Rabobi design.
Basically if you grew up around the same time I did in South Africa you would have seen mega cool Spiderman cartoons that were translated into Setswana. Not only was it a cool cartoon but it had some of the funniest theme song dialogue I have ever heard, such as, “Uppercut KO one time!”
Yes indeed it was very South African hehehe.
The Rabobi, Rabobi design is a super hero design that speaks directly to our own society and our past. Every time I see this design by WolFox my mind is cast back to the days when I used to dress up in my very own Spiderman costume and leap from couch to couch.
While I suppose we never really know which design is going to walk away with the win, every now and then you just get a feeling, much like Peter Parkers “spider sense”, that tells you that a design is simply destined for greatness. Wolfox is a designer that knows exactly how to take a well known theme and take it to a whole new level by applying social factors and influences, take his other winning design eSempowenis for instance….that design really pushed the boundaries of what was acceptable, whilst skimming the edges of parody.
The Rabobi, Rabobi design is the same in that it also dwells in the realm of parody, whilst making the design completely its own original style.
Congratulations once again to WolFox for this very mighty win with the Springleap.com crew.
As always you amaze us with your design work!
I can’t wait to get my very own Rabobi, Rabobi t-shirt…YAY.
