Apply your creativity to design a logo for the following Neo-Geo home cartridge. For full details of the contest along with entry submissions, see here at 99designs.com. Finalists to be chosen by February 17th, so act fast. Winning logo will be printed on the front of the insert packaging, spine of the packaging, and on the cartridge sticker.

​Even if you're not competing, you can participate by voting on your favorite design after the finalists are selected.

Rough draft of insert (stripes will likely be holographic to best represent the full spectrum of genre colors & NEO GEO logo to be gold foil):

Just a quick suggestion, the cover art itself (not the logo) would look great if it mimicked World Heroes 2's filmstrips, with either game title screens or game artwork featured.

I might submit a logo if I get a good idea.

WH2 template does make sense from the sheer volume of screenshots or arts that can be crammed into the filmstrips. Will consider that, thanks. Current template favors SSV Special, which is a favorite:

Hope to see some participation from the local community. Everyone here will be open to vote to help select the finalists and ultimately the winner. It would be great if the $499 prize went to one of our own.

When I saw the 4 screens I thought somewhat the same, not filmstrips, just fill with title screens or insert-fronts on an angle.

This is a really cool idea, to bad I suck at making logos. This is coming from a guy that took 3 years of graphic arts.

Somebody is off to a bad start in this contest. Two of the entries (by the same person) say 16 in 1. :keke:

We get a prize for designing a cover to a bootleg multicart converted from MVS to AES by DavidG.

I can't believe you are still doing business with him after all of this.

I'm surprised how timid you guys are in this thread...or maybe just too busy?

The cart should read:

"Neo Scammerman's 161 in 1 multi-con"
"brought to you by: wealthy scammed europeans and David 'Jason Young' Garrett"

And have a picture of Tonks minty bank transfers for the picture.

As long as he's not meeting people at the Pittsburgh airport or, accepting non-refundable commissions to sell the games, Shawn doesn't see anything wrong with it.

No, seriously. That's what he actually thinks.

Ohhhhh shit. Will Shawn leave up the inevitable entries that have cover art of a storage locker, Beamer engine, and or AF3? I actually wanna see how creative the community can get. :)
