Choose Your Winner – Social Media Backgrounds

By wwwtc In Uncategorized

Posted February 21st, 2014

A couple of weeks ago I ran my first Design contest on topcoder. The ask was to create some background images for our Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ pages. Of course with the announcement of the New topcoder, our existing social media presence needed a facelift to match.

The requirements for this challenge were a bit vague, and really left the designers with total creative freedom. However one main point we did stress was:

  • Match the look and feel of the new site/logo

The results we got back were amazing! But, this challenge wasn’t just about which submissions I liked. This challenge was for the community, by the community. Therefore, it’s only right to have the community choose which of the winning submissions, actually gets used.

Without further ado, check out the 1st and 2nd place submissions below, and vote on your favorite. You’ll notice the two versions of Design 1 are very similar, so take a close look! Polling closes Monday, February 24th at 5pm EST. We will update our Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ with the winning design after voting closes.
