So my city's football club held a contest, the idea was to create the seasonpasses which will be used for a few years. I submitted three designs and now.. I WON (http://www.nec-nijmegen.nl/layout.php?p=11&NieuwsID=1148)!!! the second price. My design won't be used for the seasonpasses, but it will be used for the clubcard. But it will still be wide spread.
They're handing me the clubcard during a game (well, more like THE game of the year) during halftime at the centerspot. I mean.. The game is sold out, guaranteed. I will be really nervous and probably trip somewhere halfway there.

I have no idea what anything in that article says, but I'm hoping Winnaar = winner and website = website. Congratulations!

The article spelled clubcard wrong, there's no question mark in ?lubcard.

Well.. my design will be used on thousands of clubcards for a couple of years. And I get to be at the centerspot during the game of the year!

Congrats :) Well deserved

"I will be really nervous and probably trip somewhere halfway there." Don't worry about this, just imagine that everyone in the stadium is naked, they say that it works. :D

Whoa I didn't know we could actually see your design. Yours was much better. He just had that stupid slogan.

To be fair the first one just looks like poster material. Tijs' looks like something awesome I'd like to carry around in my pocket.

I think the first one won over mine because it has the city's skyline on it, and the slogan as WCM said. It looks very good too, though.

The jury mainly looked at the neutral appearance of the card, because it's going to be user for several years. Originality and an N.E.C.-look also played a heavy role.

The number one card definitely has the N.E.C. thing going on.

Thanks to all who thought mine looks better :-) This will go great in my portfolio.


Congrats, Tijs! Your design is totally awesome. And better than the other guys for sure. How'd you do the 3-D?Using 3Ds Studio Max.

It makes sense. I wouldn't use Tijs' card massively even though it's more precious.

Congratulation.

Great job.
And I have an idea of something that you could do when you stand on the pitch, in the middle of 13.000 people. Just say: Go buy the new Offspring album since The Offspring is the best band in the world :D

These two posts made me laugh super hard.

On a serious note, big-time congratulations, Tijs! I think I speak for more than just myself when I say that we're super proud of you and very happy for you.

Thanks, thanks, thanks! I need to get a haircut though, and my sideburns need to look awesome. It'll be next month.

It't just nec who the fuck is going to see it? A couple hundred farmers? I'm just kidding tijs, A little football rivalry. Congrats though.More like a couple of thousand (maybe tenthousands?) of farmers. And speaking of rivalry, it's during the halftime at the NEC-Vitesse game they're handing me the card.

So today was the day. I have to say that I expected more from it. I had to make some calls to get myself a free ticket to the game, or else I had to pay for the ticket in order to be there, but the game was already sold out.

I couldn't take anyone else along with me either, so I had to go by myself. They handed me 'my' design before the game on the field, we only walked a few meters onto the field, so that wasn't very special either. The design was framed but very badly printed onto the paper, it even has the printer-marks on it. You know, the guidelines that show you how to cut it and all that. It's very enlarged so it's all pixely.
So I only got that.

I got to watch the game on a seat between 4 old guys shouting at everyone. One gave me some popcorn though, nice fellow. He also toldme he only goes to Arnhem (the opponent team's home city) when he has to go to court.

1-0 victory for us, which basicly means EUFA play-offs, so it all ended well.

Sorry your big day was so anticlimactic, Tijs. But...

I am somehow comforted in this. Our countries aren't so different after all!

Sorry your big day was so anticlimactic, Tijs. But...Ah I wasn't that disappointed, I didn't expect much from it. I'm still really glad about the fact that my design is gonna be carried around in a lot of people's wallet.
