Bioplastics Symbol_Alt by TheRyanFord Bioplastics Symbol_Alt by TheRyanFord
One of my other entries for the Cereplast Bioplastics "Make Your Mark" symbol design competition. Coincidentally what eventually became the winner of the competition was markedly similar to this design.

What Are Bioplastics
They're a line of materials made from renewable resources, like algae, corn, etc, that are designed to retain the same characteristics of regular petroleum-based plastics without the negative environmental impact.

Behind the Symbol
This was a conceptual derivative of my other work, where I recognized the potential to expand upon the leaf form I'd originally drawn and use it in way to suggest the leaf was also a cupped hand.
This symbol still encapsulates my idea of something new growing from something natural, but does so in a slightly more simple and plain fashion, and represents the care that comes from choosing bioplastics.

Pink presentation chosen for visual differentiation. Also I like pink.

Very nice!
I like this one better than the other entry. It gives a more peacefull and earth loving feel, ah well, you know what I mean.

Yeah I liked it a lot too. Sadly it didn't make it through the public voting session and didn't end up in the top 200, although all of my other entries did.

really weird too considering what ended up being 1st place.

Well, the public voting session was very odd. Even judges I spoke to were critical of it. They based it on some supposed chess algorithm, and while I'm not sure what the logistics behind it were, the result was that one hour my work would be at the very top, and the next hour it'd be at the very bottom. Things would shift seemingly randomly around the ranking set, so there was honestly no predictability to the process.
