That’s it, that’s all. Fin.
Once again, the battles were close with JSLV & Hydro74 at each other’s throats all day long. And it stayed that way. One would go ahead by a vote, then the other would tie it. Then they’d both get a vote. Then another. This went on for hours until I decided to push the voting another 12 hrs. In the end, after thousands of votes, JSLV narrowly beat out Hydro74 to take the crown. Congratulations go out both of them, as well as the weekly category winner. Thank you to thousands of people who have voted on the brackets. I can’t express how grateful I am that you all enjoyed this & voted along all month.
Congratulations go out to last week’s Lifestyle Category winner, Hydro74. He brought the heat & took on all comers, including two of my logos (the shadow conspiracy and awsm) along with Nixon, Vans & Upper Playground to take the title.
Congratulations to Per Welinder and the crew at JSLV for taking the Snow Category title this year. Therew was some CLOSE battles all week with Willie McMillon’s Bluebird Wax battling them hard well into the finals.
Congratulations to Jim Phillips and his Independent Trucks logo for taking the Skate Category championship in the 2014 March Logo Madness competition. Can’t say I’m overly surprised since the Indy iron cross is one of my favorite logos ever but none the less, great job by a great company!
Congratulations to Thalia Surf Shop for taking the Surf Category championship in the 2014 March Logo Madness competition. En route to their win, they took out some heavy hitters; Quiksilver in the semifinals and RVCA in the finals! Good job by the little shop up the road!

So, this is it, we’ve reached The Finals. Thousands of votes cast and we’re down to two logos. Both are icons in the industry. 90s upstart, Volcom with the Volcom Stone vs 60s originator, Vans’ and their “Off the Wall” Skateboard. Round 5 was another close one. Both Powell & Burton had the early lead, Vans overtook Burton midweek and Volcom had a late day surge on Friday to overtake Powell by a few votes. This one’s for all the marbles and the illustrious World Champion of the World / best logo in action sports title.
Another round down, another close battle. This time the closest was between Vans & Adidas, with Vans winning by 7 votes. Not quite as close as it’s 1-vote squeaker last week but still, it was a bit too close for comfort if you’re rooting for the Original Skate Shoe. This week Vans battles against snow heavyweight, Burton while on the other side of the brackets, the Skate titan Powell dukes it out with Surf superstar, Volcom. Judging by the past few weeks, one of these will be decided by less than 10 votes, but which one?
Head on over and vote on the Final Four in round 5.
Logolounge is having a call for entries for their 8th book. The site is a great resource & the books are a great way for designers to get some recognition. Plus it’s aways cool seeing your stuff in print amongst a bunch of other good work.
Wrapped up a Made in California logo a couple weeks ago for Cosmetix West, a private label skincare manufacturer based in LA. Pretty excited about how it turned out. They’ve got it up on the front page of their newly-redesigned website as well.
The fourth round is open for voting in our March Logo Madness competition. The battle between DC & Vans was as close as it possibly could be with Vans besting DC by a SINGLE VOTE. For the 4th round, the bracket champions will be decided and every one is a heavy contender for the competition championship.
The fourth round / Elite 8 are:
Best of Skate: Powell vs Element
Best of Surf: Quiksilver vs Volcom
Best of Snow: Burton vs Santa Cruz
Best of Lifestyle: Adidas vs Vans
The response to the contest has been great, it’s down to the last couple rounds now and only eight logos remain but these four votes may take more time to decide than the entire 32 votes in the first round.
