And the winner is...
Posted: October 20, 2007 by Daniel Westergren
Time has come to finally announce the winner of the design competition! First we wish to thank all who submitted their designs and made it a tough call for us to decide. Let's hear some drum rolls... as we announce the winner... Steve Sicherman! Steve - who is from Saskatoon, Canada - is currently working together with the Development Team with the markup for his design. It may take awhile before the site is dressed in its new clothes, as we also will do some restructuring in the process. For the curious of you, have a preview of the homepage and an example of the sub pages. We are very happy with Steve's design and think this will give a fresh, new look to the website of CMS Made Simple. For this, Steve will be sent some CMSMS swag as I learnt the Americans call it, that is some stuff with the CMSMS logo on it. For more info about Steve Sicherman and his work, please visit his website at stevesicherman.com. There are some great examples of other designs he has made there too. Steve Sicherman writes this about himself:
I've been designing web sites since '95, and working for companies building enterprise-level Content Management Systems for about 6 years. My experience in the industry is what drew me to CMS Made Simple, I was very surprised to find an open source CMS application that was doing so many things right. While there are a number of powerful Open Source CMS's out there, CMSMS is the only one I'm comfortable handing over to clients with very little experience updating web content.Again, our thanks to Steve and to everyone who submitted their designs! Sorry to those who would have liked to take part to, but weren't able to because of time constraints... There is a redesign of the themes site in the making, so we look forward to some great designs being posted there.
