The Surf and Turf Challenge

Graphic DesignThe Surf and Turf Challenge

Evolutions have astounded us for so many years. What do you mean we come from apes? What can we do? The research and science are clear. Centuries and eons of survival of the fittest gave rise to the diversity of species we enjoy now: from goats to piranha, from lions to amoebas. 

But would it be fun to play with it a bit? What if we have a completely different set of species that have evolved? Instead of lions, what if we get a hybrid of elephant heads but with a lion body? What if we see birds with fish heads? We don’t have that, but it’s up to our creativity. 

Since we are creative here on DesignCrowd, we asked our community of designers to come up with their own evolutionary enigmas. 

What’s the Challenge?

This extraordinary contest invites designers to turn the evolutionary process on its head. From the primal amoeba to modern man, evolution has been a journey from sea to land. Now, it’s time to merge these realms in a whimsical twist of nature.

Participants are tasked with creating a Land/Sea/Air creature hybrid. This isn’t just a test of imagination but also of skill, as quality is paramount. The challenge is to blend elements of land and aquatic life in a way that’s as absurd as it is artistic.

The Winning Creations:

The submissions we received were a testament to the boundless creativity of our logo designers. Here are some of the top entries that took us on a journey through uncharted evolutionary waters:

The Seahorse Centaur:

The first image presents a mesmerizing blend of a camel and a turtle. This creature, with the upper body of a majestic camel and the lower body of a delicate turtle, seems to gallop through the ocean depths with grace and elegance.


The Croco-Duck

In the second entry, we encounter the Puppy Turtle, a striking hybrid of a puppy and a turtle. This creature, with a turtle’s formidable body and a dog’s head and face, embodies the perfect fusion of land and aquatic prowess.

The Turtle Dove:

The third image showcases the piranha bird, an imaginative amalgamation of a fish and a cockatoo. This serene creature, with the fur and wings of a bird and the head of a piranha, can mean peace and harmony between air and sea.
