Our friends at 12 Angry Mascots have announced a winner in their contest to redesign the NFL's concussion awareness poster. This is the best; honorable mentions inside.
Allison Oliphant is the winner, thanks to splattery graphics, eye-catching text, and to-the-point information.
We at Deadspin HQ actually like this one the best. Gets the point across without having to read more than the word "concussion."
Repackages the original's information via sidebars and infographics.
More eye-catching than the original, but still a bit wordy.
Love it. Only problem is some NFLers would take away "I can only get concussed if my helmet shatters."
Colorful! Clipart! Perfect for the 8th grade reading level of the average pro athlete.
Like this one a lot. The "brain in a helmet" motif seems to be the way to go.
Easy to digest, but somewhat text-heavy.
Contrasting colors grab one's attention, but still too much actual reading.
A bit science-y for the average player.
Jamie SappLove it for the juxtaposition of Roethlisberger and "retardation."
There's a reason they didn't let us pick the winner.
