2011 roundup

For our own record (and egos) I thought I'd compile a list of our 2011 contest entries that made it into the top 10 in Spoonflower's weekly design contests.

  • Leprechauns. Entries closed March 8, 2011. 

  • Maps. Entries closed March 22, 2011. 

  • Folk Tales. Entries closed May 17, 2011.

  • Fishing. Entries closed May 31, 2011.

  • Coffee. Closed on July 26, 2011. *First Place*

  • Sharks. Closed on August 2, 2011.

  • Bowling. Closed August 30, 2011.

  • Military. Closed on Nov. 1, 2011.

  • Advent Calendar Kits. Closed Nov. 15, 2011.

  • Nine in the top ten including one first place out of forty-nine weeks (not including project selvage weeks and the staff contest week).

    But it wasn't about winning or how well we would do. It was about actually doing it. Entering each week. Thinking up a design for each given topic. Pushing ourselves. In the process we gained confidence and a love of surface design - an area of design we had never thought of before as a career option.
