I didn't win (boo) but I am very proud to say that I received two honourable mentions in dispatches - which isn't too shabby for a self-taught amateur designer!
The comments were that my design was "novel" (judge and artist Jasper Joffe) and "a cutting conception" that "would make any best-selling crime fiction author very proud" (judge and artist Patrick Hughes).
Shame not to win, but great to get good feedback!
My design is here for you to see and to praise/mock as you see fit.
Check out the competition - the judges' comments, shortlisted designs, the overall winner of course and all the entries (including mine) here.
There is talk of their producing an illustrated version which will feature all the designs submitted - we'll just have to wait and see!
