Age:

What inspired you?
When I bought my Nintendo Switch, Splatoon was the first game I played on it and I was totally excited about it. Since I also love drawing, I thought about how I could combine both to create a T-Shirt design. After experimenting a little bit, I came up with the idea of a colourful gamescom design, which reminds of paint splotches.

Which game do you like most at the moment?
I love to play Kingdom Hearts 3 from the bottom of my heart. Since my childhood I have been a huge fan and it keeps many beautiful memories for me.

What are you looking forward to the most at gamescom 2019?
I am looking forward to having a great time with lots of great memories and moments, and of course to all the games, merchandise and hopefully Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch!

3rd place: Divine Power - Tomás Brito

Name:
Tomás de Brito

Age:
29

What inspired your design?
Apart from the variety of video game worlds that have given us the freedom to play any role, magic, divine powers, and all other possible kinds of spells have always been, still are, and will always be an incredibly important factor in delighting generations over years. I wanted the gamescom logo to be the source of this power. A kind of "symbol of the chosen ones" that we all carry deep inside of us and gives us the opportunity to be everything – to imagine, that the creative power does not exist exclusively in the world of games, but perhaps also in reality. I chose this approach because this is the power that lets us gather every year to enter the worlds that give us joy and goose bumps.

Which game do you like most at the moment?
No Man's Sky

What are you looking forward to the most at gamescom 2019?
The cosplay art and game novelties.

4th place: Heroes Wanted - Konstantin Heitz

Name:
Constantine "Gonso" Heitz

Age:
24

What inspired your design?
With the current variety of games and genres, there is something for everyone - young or old, pro or casual - each of us can be the hero he/she is in the heart. Gaming isn't just for nerds anymore: your work colleague, the nice lady from the tram or your mechanic, everyone could be a "hero" just waiting for his sign. Who knows, maybe you'll fight alongside them soon. Personally, I prefer my gamer name. As Konstantin, I must be professional - as Gonso, I can save princesses, beat high scores, defeat bosses with my friends, and just be a hero.

Which game do you like most at the moment?
Destiny 2 / Division 2 and World of Warcraft (looking forward to Classic)

What are you looking forward to the most at gamescom 2019?
First of all I'm looking forward to gamescom: Opening Night Live with Geoff Keighley. But I am also looking forward to meeting friends again, to discovering new games together and just having a good time.

5th place: Pick up the Beat - Steven Weijden

Name:
Steven Weijden

Age:
32

What inspired you to your design?
The design flowed forth from some fickle bits of inspiration, like the notion of music and the idea of a wing. Then it continued to evolve from there, with the desire to give it an expressive musical vibe.

Which game do you like most at the moment?
It's hard to pick, but most of all I play Civilization 6.

What are you looking forward to the most at gamescom 2019?
Having a good time with friends. As for games, I haven't seen the list of exhibitors yet. Hopefully there will be news about Cyberpunk 2077 and Star Citizen.
