Design Contest: Judgement Day(s)

August 21st, 2007 by Dean Jansen

We’re having a design contest to see who makes the coolest 1-click subscribe buttons. THANKS SO MUCH to everyone who submitted designs — there is some seriously awesome looking work here!

Voting

Voting will take place in the comments. We’re changing the voting a bit — it will last 72 hours (instead of 24), so the polls close at noon on August 24th. Furthermore, each voter should pick their top four favorite designs (in order of preference). You CAN vote for more than one button from a single designer.

Designers shouldn’t vote, but they can invite their friends and family to vote (but not their dogs and cats).

Important

You MUST choose four buttons that you like — votes with one, two, or three choices will not be counted. Please use a valid e.mail address, we might contact you if we suspect any foul play (i.e. ballot stuffing).

Your Ballot

Keep it simple, like this (just leave a single comment):

Name (design letter)
Name (design letter)
Name (design letter)
Name (design letter)

Order matters… put your favorite at the top, and remember to choose four designs!

Note: I grouped the buttons by designer and laid them out in order of submission. Some submissions had really nice layouts with multiple color swatches, but to keep things fair, I just took a selection of three buttons from each designer.

    there need to be buttons that fit the standard chicklet styles. stuff with the “m” sticking out etc are cool in concept, but difficult for site designers to incorporate on their pages. also, i like the idea of the name of the program not dominating the chicklet. keep the “m” there to indicate the program, but by saying “watch now” you make this an active process for viewers, most of whom probably don’t care about the program they’re using, they just want to add the channel.

    despite what i said about things fitting in with the standard chicklet styles, it’s still good for there to be options with stylistic flourishes. that’s why i’m also voting for alexandra a
