We knew the choice of “Best Design” for our Pop Culture browser theme contest was going to be a hard one. It’s a topic that opened itself up to a wide range of interpretation and entries – from starlets to Star Wars, teen idols to American Idols. How do you find the best design from a field of spectacular themes and a panel of judges. It wasn’t easy.
The thing we never counted on was the ease of choice over who would receive first prize. When the list of qualifiers for “best design” were lined up, they were all from a single designer – MaDonna. She put out an amazing array of browser themes with the following just a sampling, but all selected as contenders for best design. Loosely categorized into Entertainment, Games and Music – look at these visually stunning themes as your entree to the winning design.
The Hunger Games
Pirates of the Caribbean
Family Guy Meets the Simpsons
Assassin’s Creed II
Call of Duty: Black Ops
Justin Bieber Believe
Lady Gaga – Little Red Riding Hood
And the Winner Is…
Darth Vader Red Planet
Maybe the judges were big Star Wars fans and wanted to join the 35th Anniversary celebration. Or, maybe it was the combination of the continuing Pop Culture power of the Star Wars franchise (recently sold to Disney) and the stellar fantasy night sky. Whatever the magic, it worked here and won MaDonna a well deserved Google Nexus 7 tablet.
