And the winner is…

I acknowledge that those of you who played to win, spent considerable time on your mock-ups so a big THANK YOU for your time on it. Hopefully this gave the non-designers of the group a chance to see your creative side and learn something new. (drum roll) The winner of my blog redesign contest is *David McGuigan* for his elegant and unique design. David’s design is clean, simple, monochromatic and edgy with defined lines and space. (No, that is not me in the picture 😉 People think it is.) Can’t wait to have the new design up and running, David. 🙂

The Winner

I also want to note the following runners-up because I quite liked their designs as well – made me wish I could use them all..

– Dave from Jamwerx for entry. I like your use of shading, the picture placeholder along the top and some of the cool effects.

– Tjarko for entry. Your entry is also clean, nice flickr feature and I really like how you parse out the sections. Colors are good too.

Thanks to everyone else who submitted. I was about to list your names but fear forgetting someone. I enjoyed reading your submissions.
