Abduzeedo takes pride in being one of the worlds leading design blogs. Having interviewed a bulk of the most infamous creative geniuses, we want to use our potential to introduce a new star on the Abduzeedo stage …YOU. This is our third contest for The World Collabs. Our new cutting edge Abduzeedo collaboration project, which will give you the possibility to collaborate and compete with the worlds leading designers and artists. What is "The World Collabs"? "The World Collabs" will give you the possibility to work with PSD files of established artists. TWC gives you a secret in-view in the workflow of the stars and catapults you miles forward in your journey to design heaven. This way you learn to practice with different shapes, backgrounds, patterns brushes and new styles. Every month we will offer you an unfinished piece of an experienced and accredited graphic designer to the world. The piece will be unfinished, so you can complete the PSD-file with your very own style. This way every month you can collaborate with the best designers of the world. The final pieces will be judged by the Abduzeedo Team and the artist himself. The three best works will be rewarded with prizes. Prize 1. $ 200 (send via PayPal), an approval for an original collaboration with the artist and a feature on Abduzeedo 2. $ 100 (send via PayPal) 3. A Single Version of image editing program Pixelmator (worth 59 $) 4. A Copy of the Logo Book "Lords of Logos" (worth 55 $) Artist of July: James White I am very proud to present the artists for our third Collaboration post: James White. In his 11-year career he worked for a number of professional companies performing both web and print design, gaining experience through a wide variety of projects and clients, both large and small. He is one of our favorites at Abduzeedo and has been featured in numerous articles and interviews ( Interview: James White ). I have always been pursuing my personal design and art projects on my own time. This led to me creating, my personal art blog which serves as a conduit to the global art community and has become a source for spreading inspiration, process and technical information. This eventually grew into an online store where I sell my posters to people all over the world. Take part at the contest This is an independent design contest with endless possibilities to finish this piece. There are just three simple steps to take part. 1. Download the PSD-File; 2. Push your creativity beyond boundaries and finish the design; 3.

Washington Post Peeps Diorama Contest

In good Easter spirit, I bring you...Peeps! Because, really, what better way to put Easter weekend into gear than with candy? Delicious marshmallow chicks and bunnies, at that! For those of you outside the US and Canada, these are Peeps: The Washington Post holds an annual Peeps diorama contest every Easter. This year is their 4th consecutive year of Easter Peeps fun and the entries are way beyond incredible! I was really impressed with the crazy amount of creativity that went into some of these. People even went so far as to take popular news, like the ridiculous balloon boy hoax of last October for instance, and reenact the story with Peeps! Hopefully this post will inspire you to make something cute with candy this weekend. I'm making Peeps cupcakes :) Granted not as creative as these dioramas but still equally as tasty! I'll share my Easter baking inventions on twitter. Share yours with me too! Happy Easter folks!

Abduzeedo's 2nd Anniversary - T-Shirt Contest Result, Giveaway and other Announcements

On December 19th of 2006 I posted my very first article here, on what I would now call a website rather than just a blog. The whole idea behind Abduzeedo was that it would be my personal blog, where I could share some of my design experiments. This evolved into the tutorials we have now. Back in 2006, when I decided to start Abduzeedo, I was going through a very difficult time in my business life... my office had been stolen and I had lost all my equipment, computer and backups. So I thought Abduzeedo would be a good way to save my "stuff" online. Then last January Fabiano and Paulo started writing articles, and a few months later Aloa joined the team. After 2 years, I have to say, Abduzeedo has become my main activity. I have to thank you all for visiting the blog, commenting on the articles, criticizing, and helping me to evolve professionally by sharing ideas and experiments. Also I'd like to thank all the sponsors that have allowed us to keep the blog up, and of course the contributors that have posted incredible articles. As it's time to celebrate we will do a different giveaway from what we normally do. Instead of giving the prize to a reader who leaves a comment we thought it would be nice make a sort of a scavenger hunt. How will that work? Well, we've placed 2 images in 2 OLD Abduzeedo Articles (meaning that today's wallpaper post doesn't count). The first 2 readers who find the image will have to send a twitter message to Abduzeedo ( saying: "@abduzeedo Happy Birthday Abduzeedo. The image is here: link". The image is a 2 Years Anniversary Wallpaper. The tutorial for it will be published next week. Also, we'll give another extra shirt and a copy of Pixelmator for the best answer at twitter to the question: "Why do you love Abduzeedo?"... the answer must contain "@abduzeedo I love abduzeedo because..." T-Shirt Design Contest Results! We'd also like to announce the 5 winners of our T-Shirt Design Contest. It was a really cool contest, with over 70 pieces in the running for prizes! Unfortunately we had a little cheating during the votes, so design #37 was unclassified. The idea was that the voting process should be fair to anyone, and if anyone tried to make #37 win anything by cheating, you managed to screw things up. Sorry! Anyways, here are the 5 winners: First Place! Second Place! Third Place Fourth Place Fifth Place Congratulations to all the winners! Geometric Book Giveaway Result! We also want to announce the winner for another giveaway. The Kaptiza Geometric Book is all about geometric patterns inspired by basic shapes, but the best thing is that with the book you get a CD with 100 pattern fonts that you can use the way you want, allowing you to create many more different patterns. For more information about it and how to get your copy which includes the CD with 100 pattern fonts visit their site at And the winner for this is: zimzallabimdesign Editor: David Parrott

Card Contest New Voting

After a little problem, we gotta restart the card contest. Not every card was avaiable for voting and we started the election 1 day earlier! Even if we added the missing cards later, it wouldn't be fair to them, so that's why everyone gets a new chance now. Here are many designs sent to our Flickr Pool, remember that it was a rule for this contest. So please, you guys may start voting on your best picks. No anonymous vote will be count, nor non-member votes, since it was a member-only contest. You guys cannot vote in your own design, you only must cheer about your own pieces, ok? You guys may choose 2 designs (leave a comment with the numbers you'll choose), and from the results, we'll name the winners. Cheers!! ;) 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55
