3689512804?profile=originalWe have a winner! Adrian Mescalchini is the victor of our "Design a New Banner" competition, and his work is now gracing the top of this page.  We'll work with him to slightly enlarge the type, but the overall design was a clear favorite amongst those voting in the poll over at Google+ (I wanted to also get the views of a broader community, not just the current members of this site)

Coming in a strong second was Petrus Botha, with this impressive range of options:


It was hard to choose just one, so in recognition of two such talented designers, both will be getting a full APM 2.5 kit as prizes. But Adrian, as the people's choice, wins the top award, of the banner at the top of this page.

Many thanks to all the others who entered this competition. Ning, our hosting platform, is moving to a 3.0 version with a lot of new design tools and a cleaner aesthetic, and we'll be migrating to that this summer. That means lots of additional opportunities for this community to contribute to the evolution of our design. More contests, more prizes!

Meanwhile, Adrian and Petrus, if you're looking for more design work, please ping me. We'd love to sign you up for paid design work at 3DR. Or frankly anywhere else where I can use cool graphics. You both rock!

  • Unsuccessful troll is unsuccessful.

  • In my opinion the logo/header is too high and take too much precious space forcing users to scroll to see the interesting content. I would cut the height by two.

  • Congratulations! A wonderful banner!
