Button Contest: And the winners are…

After two weeks of frenzied voting, surprises, reversals, and excitement, we finally have the names of the winners of the Jimdo Button Design! There were more than 7,400 votes and because of the way the votes fell, we have FOUR winners instead of three today! Each one of them got more than 500 votes, so we thought we'd declare them all winners!

Congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated in the button design contest -- the designers, the voters, all of you!

We promised to introduce the winners, so read on to find out more about these spectacular designers :)


Button 1 - Alper Uzak - Germany

My name is Alper, I am 18 years old and am in the 12th grade (soon 13th) at a technical school specializing in computer science. In school I don't have a lot of opportunities to practice design, but I am very creative. I use Photoshop and I like to take photographs. Mostly I make or take "crazy" pictures that you can see on my JimdoPage. Often I make photo montages or other unusual images. My pictures either say something about me or they're just silly and a little bizarre -- but you can judge for yourself on my JimdoPage.

The idea for the button come from an idea out of my school for computer science, where I learned that computers run with 1s and 0s -- and so does the internet. I thought I could use that.

Congratulations Alper!

Button 46 - Giorgio Guidi - Italy


Hi everyone! My name is Giorgio Guidi. I'm a young designer, but I already have a lot of experience. While at university… I like three dimensional modeling and rendering, and I'm interested in working with design and architecture studios. In the last few years, I've worked a lot with graphic design, making flyers, posters, and volunteered for AIDO (Italian Association for Organ Donors).

On my website you can see all the services I offer: product design, virtual modeling of objects and architecture, rendering, business card design, flyers, catalogs, and more. It won't be long until my e-shop is up and running on Jimdo. My site also has a blog, with interesting articles for about design.

Congratulations Giorgio!

Button 38 - Elena Salmistraro - Italy

A fashion and product designer, Elena graduated in 2008 from the Polytechnikum in Milan. Elena's interests range from fashion design to product design, and her work is particularly conscious of environmental sustainability. Elena's design philosophy is grounded in the organic world, fluid, sinuous, but sometimes edgy, but tied to natural ecosystems. Playing with form and volume brings artisanry to the world of industrial design and architecture. She maintains a poetic yet functional design language, creating a "harmony of shapes based on lightness and delicate tones." Devoted foremost to the design of objects, she also works in other areas like art, graphic design, drawing, or even a line of personalized t-shirts."

Congratulations, Elena!

Button 4 - Damien Vivo - France

Hello, my name is Damien. I'm 16 years old and still in school in Lyon. I love modern cars and video games! Around the end of 2009 / beginning of 2010 I got started with graphic design, and I enjoy it a lot! That's also the reason I started creating my JimdoPage -- in order to show my photo galleries. Speaking of my Jimdo site, you can visit it here: - leave a comment if you like!  I'm working on a set of tutorials about graphics and designs for beginners as well as advanced people. It's coming soon -- after the summer holidays!
