Cue the music, light the lights, the time has finally come! The Minted team has been hard at work all summer picking special prize winners from lots of our past challenges. We’re thrilled to say that this post is the first of many, so get ready to relive some of the most outstanding designs from this year’s challenges!
We kick it all off with special prizes from our Moms, Dads, and Grads Journal Challenge. We asked the Minted community to design fresh, modern journals that would make memorable gifts. Congratulations to all the winners and runner-ups whose designs stood out in the following categories:
Snapshot Award for the best design incorporating a photo
This is one design that I’m sure lots of people can relate to! Sara’s “Eat Sleep Poop” is both adorable and hilarious. The type is thoughtfully set, perfect for overlaying a large photo of your little one.
Runner Ups: “The Story of You” by guess what? | “Super Dad” by Ana Gonzalez | “dad&me” by Jessica Kwok
Can’t Pick Just One Award for the best multi-photo design
There’s something so casual and personal about this journal. From the personalizable family seal to the splash of Washi tape to the chalkboard captions, every detail is so thoughtful. Jennifer’s journal is perfect for capturing memories.
Runner Ups: “Retro Stars” by Designkandy – Simone Klein | “Confessions of a First Time Mom” by Ana Gonzalez
Text with a Twist Award for the best design that uses curvilinear text to create unique shapes or unusual layouts.
Renee’s “Super Mom” is simple and sweet. We love the muted background and the very official “Mom” nameplate. Our favorite detail is the type below the name listing the heroic jobs of your supermom.
Runner Ups: “Suzette’s Flowers” by Sharon Rowan | “Run to Win” by Frooted Design | “Polka” by Stacey Meacham
Congratulations again to the winners!10 COMMENTS
