@ryan: Now comes the harder decision....go with the original bomb tongue demon or the bomb tongue demon with skeuomorphism vynl record motif?

Woohoo!

There was some good competition in here. Pretty stoked to know that this might be something left open, because I have a few other ideas that might take a little bit longer.

I decided to make something gross looking:

Uhh, I kinda adore this one. This won't win, but it is my total pet favorite right now.

Thanks! :D

My votes are for the red logo record or the CBS bombcast album cover.

I was just tooling around in Photoshop, trying to figure out how legible my submission would be, if actually used on an iphone (or in itunes). Ended up making this:

The podcast app has blurry text, so I might take a second pass at the mockup. But it all looks super crisp on my phone, so I'm not too worried about that. In general, just gives a decent idea of how it all might look.

Here's a link to my template, if you're interested in making your own:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/r08xb5zjji4byuv/Bombcast%20Mock.psd?m

Ignore the font warnings - just don't replace any text, and you'll be fine.

I love the way it looks on the phone. If it doesn't win, I wish there was a way I could just use it anyway.

EDIT: Nevermind, it looks like you did win! Congratulations!

Congratulations conmused, I just wonder why they didn't go with the final version, which was even cooler in my opinion.

@regal: Where do you see it? I can't tell which one they used. iTunes is still showing TurboToaster's image for me.

Again, thanks everyone!

@conmused: For me it showed up on the iPod (and the iTunes podcast downloads section), in the actual store there seems to be nothing at the moment ( I use the Swedish store, not sure if that matters).

@regal: Huh. Weird.

While I think I like the vinyl one more, I'm kind of glad @ryan picked this one. I want my toothy bomb... thing as big as possible on everyone's screen.

This is in a weird zone where it's not bad enough to be considered hilariously bad, but it's not good enough to win. Kinda like the Cleveland Browns. But I like it and that's all that matters so back off you judgmental people who don't get funny football references.

Love the new Art for the Podcast! It showed up in my Zune thingy and I was happy!

If I lived in a perfect world I wouldn't mind the Giant Bombcast being renamed to 'Bombcast' and the Giant Bomb Interview Dumptruck being renamed to 'Interview Dumptruck' since both names are kinda long and redundant? Of course they are sorta needed for normal people who maybe don't know what a Giantbomb is... I guess... if you wanna give a shit about THOSE people.

EDIT: Sup with the faded letters on the winning image? Upside down stuff that doesn't seem to spell a word? I guess I missed the joke or it's some left over layer text? Here:

@djjoejoe: Heh. Yeah, so in my search for free vintage textures, I grabbed from a lot of sources. Pretty sure that's a remnant of an old blue-print sheet.

If @ryan wants that fixed/removed, here it is.

As you can see, Jeff is holding a jar and a controller, Ryan (or Ryman) has a delicious can of coconut milk, Brad has his trusty keyboard, Vinny is being very careful holding his son Max and Patrick has a dinosaur and a ghost. I think this picture best reflects the interests of the Bombcast crew and the site at large.

I think we have a winner.

@pickassoreborn: Yup. I think they even addressed this once on the Bombcast, after another user saw coke using it for something.

Nothing wrong with stock art. After all, it looked pretty damn good when combined with the illustrations.

Just got around to checking out this thread and looking at all the entries. There are some amazing fucking graphic designers / artists on this site. Props to all ya'll, including folks who submitted...less serious entries.

@fattony12000: You probably should have provided some attribution in your original post, instead of using it as a cheap comeback later. Anyways, it was nice of whoever made that edit to exclude Drew's coming into the Bombcast lineup. Not to mention that part of this move is because new people are about to come in.

Withy Vinny moving to NYC and a new hire coming in soon I felt the desire to give a new image a go. This is what I came up with:

I want a new Bombcast image with depictions of what the GB crew looks like to that emailer who doesn't know what they look like. Everyone in button down shirts with the sleeves rolled up, and a half Asian Drew Scanlon.
