Badges will be awarded to those making exceptional contributions to our project.

Calling all talented designers to design the badges that will be handed out at DHE! The winner will be announced here, have a special contribution badge (of their own design!), and be acknowledged here: https://dhep.ga/ack.php as well as your work being visible and admired by everyone in the community!

We are looking for badges to be attractive, eye-catching, and would be great if they represent in some way the project and activity being rewarded. There will be badges for participating in alpha & beta periods, for credit levels, going above and beyond to help the project in special ways, for islands originating certain numbers of 'best of all island' solutions, and many more...

All designs welcome at M.Garvie@sussex.ac.uk until August 20th!

PS: For ideas from other projects' badges: https://signature.statseb.fr/index.py?cpid=13a87c3a303bcdca4ba0ed600daebb6b and https://signature.statseb.fr/index.py?cpid=9131861bc46b433f8a6716db0501dec6

Hello everyone, I would like to have some specifications on the size in pixels of the badge you requested, the number and type of badges to be made, and some specifications on the type of processing that the project will do.

Hi Simone,

Good to hear from you regarding this.

I think this kind of size would be good https://signature.statseb.fr/img/badge/Black%20Hole.png and it can always be shrunk.

In terms of description of the project you can read https://dhep.ga/index.php and https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn4012-circuit-design-evolving-in-distributed-digital-world/ and this might give you a couple of ideas:

Obviously you'd be free to go where your instincts and inspiration take you. But for a couple of pointers from my end I kind of like the Skynet trophy look - real eye candy. Also a classical style medal might serve as some inspiration. In terms of imagery, there could be the things that DHE will improve: self-driving cars, medical equipment, power stations, high speed trains, aerospace: so planes and satellites, construction equipment, and even day to day items such as processors have Self-Checking logic in them as die sizes reduce the error rate goes up. So almost anything with electronics which is a game-changer in our lives. Robots too of course. DNA strands could be in there somewhere too. Also islands could be in there..

Perhaps they could be related to the activity being rewarded: for instance a prize for the fastest cruncher could have an aeroplane, one for most amount crunched could be a power station, one for most 'best of all islands' an island or medical equipment, the one for those contributing in a special way to the project could have an automated house builder or construction equipment, etc.."

All the best!

Michael

LOL, I forgot that this was supposed as a competition. Otherwise I would have made colorful sketches in the other thread and probably a bit more to show how I had imagined the "badge line". ;-)
