In the hustle and bustle of launching GetMiro.com, we weren’t left with a lot of time to make 1-click subscribe buttons. We think it will be fun to have a contest for new designs.
A Fun Little Design Contest
Design up to three buttons and submit them as links in the comments. On August 20th, we’ll create a blog post with all of the submissions.
There aren’t a lot of constraints on what you can submit. Our goal is to have a selection of buttons that would look nice on a blog sidebar or myspace page. We hope to see a variety of sizes and colors.
Judgment Day: August 20th
Voting will be informal and will happen in the comments. Every voter is allowed to pick two of their favorite designs. Please, one vote per person. The polls will be open for 24 hours. In the end, it’ll boil down to the crowd’s four favorites.
Fame, Fortune & HUGE Prizes
The 2nd, 3rd and 4th highest ranked designers will get to pick a Miro shirt from a set of three designs that are NOT yet publicly available. The first prize winner will get one of each of the new shirt designs! We have both boy and girl sizes.
Extended Everlasting Fame
All buttons that we include on our 1-click subscribe page will have their creator’s name immortalized, along with a link to their website or blog. We choose these designs (and they could fall outside of the winner’s pool).
What is a 1-Click Button/Link?
Miro has the ability to use 1-click subscribe links. That means a person can click a link from a browser and automatically become subscribed to a channel (or set of channels). We’re going to start really encouraging video producers to add these to their sites. This is the Miro 1-click button maker.
Use the M
This is a .png graphic with a transparent background. You’re welcome to use it in your designs (we just ask that you don’t change the color or shape).
The Small Text
This contest is for fun. Submit up to three different designs. There will be (at least) four different people winning prizes. Feel free to use the Miro ‘M’, but please don’t change its color, orientation, aspect ratio, or shape. Your friends CAN vote for you. If we find anyone cheating on votes, we’ll sick the PCF dogs on them! Good luck and above all, have fun!
Edit: Here is the Miro font (unfortunately, it’s not free).
