…The graciously misspelled “Bananna&Apple“! !
The Sense Graphics creation won by a Landslide of as of now January 28 22:00 GMT, 4498 votes in the first ever Steamie Contest!!
And what a Contest it was; With over 7000 votes and 2000 submitted Steamies, we are nothing but amazed by the sheer number of people that contributed to the success of this event. And fear not, we are sensible of all the observations you, our community pointed out during the contest and so we decided to Smurf Steam things up:
SENSE Graphics, being a graphics team, taking part in a digital “art” contest like this one, is like bringing Picasso in a game of pictionary. We did have second thoughts when we were picking the Top 20 Steamies, but “Bananna&Apple” was smart and creative and beautifully done; we decided to let it run. This contradiction as well as the response it got from all the voters(something we didn’t expect, my money was on Jessica) placed us in the difficult position to decide whats fair. So we did, and our opinion is that the exposure SENSE Graphics got from this whole thing means much more to them than an iPod Touch.
So, while we work on a Prize that is as valuable to our first Winner, the first iPod will go to the 2nd place, Stick baby by Juan Treminio(2469 votes)
and the other one, we will give to the 3rd place, Help! by Tom Deluca(77 votes)
Congratulations to all of our winners and to everybody that took place in this Awesome Contest. Winners, you will hear from us really soon, Steamers, keep sending Steamies, your Art is an inspiration to us!
Look forward to our next, even better contest!
