[ANN] Announcing the Winner of the Template Contest


#1

The winner of our Template Contest was Roasters by Paul du Coudray,
receiving an overwhelming 79 of 80 votes cast. Some choice comments left
by voters:

“Great use of snippets for navigation and rss, and Archives for article
pages. Nice integration of Disqus and Google Maps.”

“Elegant, good layout, excellent use of typography, color, space. In a
word, excellent.”

“Great, fresh look. Love the paragraphs with icons on the right. Good
use of color and typography. Simple, thematic styles (hyperlinks are
blue and underlined throughout)”

“Roasters is a nice template. Clean, pleasing, and well-designed.”

Paul will be receiving:

  • One Radiant T-Shirt in his size
  • $200 gift certificate for Threadless
  • Roasters featured on the Radiant demo site for a yet-undetermined
    period
  • Inclusion of Roasters in the Radiant distribution – look for it in
    0.7.0!

As thanks for participation, Zhen Kyle will receive a Radiant T-shirt.

Congratulations to both of you! For all of you who contacted me after
the deadline, please start working on your templates. We’ll have a new
contest soon!

Cheers,

Sean

Did I miss something? Are there Radiant T-Shirts available? Where?

I printed them up in October, gave out a bunch to sprint attendees, and
held onto some for the contest. I might be persuaded to sell some soon.

You have any pics? Any shirts in XXL? :^)

Nate,

All XXLs are gone (I only ordered 6 initially and we had a bunch of
takers at the sprint). Rest assured we’ll make some more at some point.

They aren’t great, but I just took a few pictures of my shirt:
