Thousands of Buttons - Buttons to the People Contest

To celebrate summer, all the different Jimdo languages are organizing an awesome "button" contest!
The theme: Jimdo! (what else?) Creatives, designers, supporters, and fans of Jimdo -- anyone who's interested -- this contest is for you!

The idea came from the Jimdo Japan team… during the festivities for Jimdo's 1st birthday in Japan, they made lots and lots of buttons, each one cooler than the next. Some of them made it to Hamburg, so we all started putting together ideas for our own.

Then we got the idea -- why not ask our users to join in? We know that lots of you are handy with image editors, we've seen the proof of your talents on your Jimdo sites! So, if you are interested, get brainstorming, and share your best ideas with the Jimdo community!

 

What can you win?
The three winners will get a special (really special) surprise package from us and we'll profile them in the blog and in the newsletter. A little exposure can't hurt! :)

How to Participate

We've put together a template for you (see right). The template is for buttons that are 38mm in diameter and have a visible part (the red inner circle) and a part that won't be visible later (the black outer circle)


Your button design needs to have a resolution of at least 300dpi. To make sure that the colors are printed the way you want, we encourage you to use CMYK format for color designs and bitmap-format for black and white designs. (Preferred formats: JPEG, PNG, TIFF, PDF) And of course, use whatever image editor you like best (Photoshop, Illustrator, Gimp, InDesign, etc.).

 

Here's where you'll find more Jimdo photos and logo resources:

You can download the template and some instructions below -- in .ZIP format.

The Contest Fine Print

Everyone can participate, and submit as many designs as you would like. Jimdo will choose select designs for the community vote on, and YOU all will decide which three will win! By submitting your design, you agree to let Jimdo use your design for promotional materials, including reproduction and printing. Your design may be edited before printing. The winning designs will be printed by the French company "Underock Prod". We'd like to thank them for their support!

Send your button designs by June 30, 2010, to contest@jimdo.com

Have fun designing your buttons and good luck in the voting. We're looking forward to seeing your ideas and submissions!

    I would love some buttons to hand out to my customers to promote jimdo! I am totally out of stickers but have quite a few little flyers left. Are the buttons available for me to distribute in my area?
