My entry for the Red Bull Design Sally’s Board competition titled “Breaking Boundaries”. My concept was based off an old sketch I had in my sketchbook which had flying fish soaring over a rainbow background. The original concept never got very far and I thought this would be a great opportunity to expand the idea. I wanted to do something bright and abstract and besides, flying fish are awesome. As I wrote on my entry description: “I think flying fish are a symbol of optimism, achievement and rising above the status quo. Why swim when you can soar?”
I had to work on this on my ageing laptop so the colours turned out a bit over saturated (I must have been trying to bump the colour and brightness because the old screen is so dull) and I tested the uploading system expecting to review the final submission, but whoosh, it was gone! So there are typos in my description and the submission was a tiny image : ( Lesson learned… never assume you know how things work!
The final submission can be seen here: http://design-sallys-board.cloudfb.com/gallery/entry/4f1853afd6e77 . If you like the design you can “like it” on the competition page and it would make me very happy indeed!
