We’ve talked a great deal here about design (5000 or so comments) but we’ve talked less about the individuals behind the design. You can meet the finalists here, and some of the other participants here. This prize is about the people who’ve made OLP a fun place to be the past two months, and helped us reach our goal of getting so many great designs into the final. Those that have helped promoting and supporting the contest (like t-shirt talk) and you guys who’ve been submitting and commenting, particularly the latter in this case.
One of the successes of this OLP for me has been the bringing together of professional and amateur designers, in one contest without the elitism you can sometimes see in other contests. As you’re all at various levels of design experience its great to see those with more knowledge helping other designers with advice. So who should we reward with a whole years worth of shirts for their contribution to the community of la Fraise?
Jebs - a regular commenter, reviewer and advice giver (top commenter for this month)
Japasa/Nelson/Mootsie/Legofish - For not taking things too seriously, and for entertaining and playing around like Superheroes, Moustache and Eyebrow Man, Mood for Adam, Pirate Label heads as well as submitting serious entries.
Pascalphilly - the most active submitter and commenter, I don’t think anyone has spent more time on the OLP since it started.
Azzaoui - Supportive and quick to give advice to others.
Laurent - For submitting consistently different and great designs that made us think and might have pushed other designers into new directions.
Shirtnerd - A personal pick, interesting comments that usually make me laugh/smile.
However you found a way to contribute to the OLP, thanks! If we could give this prize to you all we would (we’re trying to line something up, give us a bit more time to see if we can pull it off)
