Kudos to the Winner!

I’m excited to present to you the winning design for the August 2019 Divi Awards, by Eike from 717media. I kid you not, this was a very, very tough choice. 

The judges nominated 7 incredible choices, and there were two overlaps, with SelfObsessed and Rachel Cannon. Both are amazing, and deserved to win. But I cast my vote for to Medpark.

MedPark is on brand, clear layout, beautiful design, and balanced typography. A good design inspiration for  this community. 

Special recognition

SelfObsessed deserves special recognition, for winning two of the judges awards, and 4th place in the public vote. Check them out!

Kudos to  Ayushee Aithal for the popular vote! Her website was hands down one of my favorites for beautiful typography and clean layout.

Initially, this site stands out from so many others with vibrant colors and clever animations right out of the gate and above the fold. It’s then followed up by more personality, charisma and even some charming humor. This unique, intentional design mixing both custom, outlandish images and well designed content delivers their message, style and services very effectively. Through a colorful and engaging layout and design, this site is one that absolutely stands out from the crowd.

Right from the get-go, your eye is drawn to the sleek, modern design with the changing color in the background, the intentional tagline and call to action and the custom background graphics. Then with the slightest scroll, you’re immediately drawn in with the animated car in the hero section which moves with the users pace as you scroll down. A great touch with obvious, thoughtful design. With bold design, colors and a front page that doesn’t become any larger than it needs to be, this site is beautifully crafted, condensed and to-the-point. Not easy to do but very well executed. And hats off to creating a truly unique and robust Divi menu.

2. Rachel Cannon
Simplistic and minimalistic, this is a great example of how a personal brand/blog site can be crafted to engage potential followers and get the necessary information to them without loads of paragraphs, content and too many images. The hero section logo, menu and background image are immediately engaging and you’re pulled in even further upon scrolling down with the logo changes completely. The mix of good typography (matched perfectly for a modern, feminine style) along with strong call to actions and slick but subtle overlapping elements makes this a design that is a great example of how simplicity, minimalism and intentional branding with content and images can come together to make a beautiful, engaging user experience from top to bottom.

I am voting for Anita Hesen, her site (for me anyway) is the strongest when it comes to design. I love her bold choice of colours and I find her images fun. I enjoyed scrolling down keen to see what cool image was next waiting for me to discover:) The chicken LOL! This does not look like your standard Divi website. She clearly has design skills in Photoshop and thought went into the copy. I love it. Well done on a fun surprise.

I love the use of colour and the disjointed layers created with gradient fades, image placements, and clever backgrounds. The mix of typography is on point and the injection of colour is fun but doesn’t sacrifice accessibility. Can I come over for an iced coffee? You all look fun!

2. Rachel Cannon
Watercolours used well, yaaaasss! The art elements are used consistently and well placed. You really get a sense of who Rachel is and what her values are. Hurrah for pink!

Eike Müller

5. MEDPARK
Nice, clean, corporate, and well executed. There’a lovely mix of dark and light ‘white’ space which balances the pages. Nice little hover effects bring the work to life. Perfect for the client and their marketplace.

I have been having so much fun creating this site without a template and learning all the Divi features. I’ve been trying to keep it minimal yet beautiful.

I would be so excited to win an award just for the acknowledgement of my learning and progress.
