Derby Preview #753: Community Choice!

The community chose:

Theme #1 IS THE WINNER: The Great Outdoors!

Wide open spaces, the elements, the weather! Hiking, camping, playing sportsballs, isn’t the spring time just wonderful! I’m so sick of the cold weather and hiding indoors, I need some nature in my life…draw me some arts about it! Oh! And your design must contain at LEAST 2 colors!

No politics. No cream shirts.

*This Derby begins MONDAY March 16th at 8pm, CST. & ends MONDAY March 23rd at 8pm, CST. The three winning designs will be featured as the Daily offers Tuesday-Thursday. Great designs that don’t win may be included in an Editor’s Choice sale on Friday, so be sure to check back and see who makes the cut!

This theme may come back later, so don’t throw away any artwork you may have made!!

Theme #2 did not win: One Color Magic

Your design can be all text or no text, it can be a slogan, a phrase, a pretty purtty picture! What it must not be is anything related to outdoors, animals, sports, nature etc. etc…get the picture? Oh also, it must be in one single color. Not 3, not 4, ONE. Only one. Any color you like. You may get clever with transparencies and halftones, but one color only ya hear!

No politics. No cream shirts. No outdoors stuff.


Will there also be a poll here? Not everybody has a social media account.

This time it will be restricted to social channels. Next time we will consider doing a forum only poll.

Because I don’t want to have to math that much.


Fair enough, mathing is hard.

And don’t even get me started on multiplication.

When you say one color…
Does it have to be only one colour swatch? Or could someone use a bunch of different blues to make a masterpiece that is still monochromatic.

(sorry to complicate things. I like rules)

One single color. Like uno hex code. Eins swatch.

How about using a blue and halftone in the rest of the masterpiece? :slight_smile:

So does anybody know which one won, or it supposed to surprise us?

Hey, @Lady5tark, were we supposed to be surprised on the Day Of with the decision? Or have the votes not been counted? Sorry, I wasn’t sure and thought I’d ask. (I have final polishing to do and want to prioritize accordingly. If it’s a surprise, that’s okay, just needed to know what the info was. If it’s gonna be a long work session, better stock up on the snacks…):cake: :pretzel: :fries: :w_tongue:

Outdoors is the winner!

Thanks! I ended up flipping a coin but got it all done anyway :fist_right::fist_left:

:frowning: guess I will give up on my single color design and throw something together. That is what I get for looking at twitter where one color won.

I blame John Candy

What can we say? He’s funny. Although I was hoping for the one color theme myself…
