Sandbox Design Competition Winners

This is a guest post from engtech of Internet Duct Tape.

As a follow up to my post last Thursday, the Sandbox Design competition has completed and all the designs are available for download in one file (7 MB) or can be viewed on the live preview site.

Congratulations to the winners!

  1. SandPress
  2. Moo Point
  3. Prima
  4. Essay
  5. Tiffany Blue
  6. Shades of Gray
  7. Diurnal
  8. Milkia
  9. Oriole
  10. MIX

But don’t stop at checking out only those designs. That’s only one fifth of all the designs that were submitted for the competition. As I’ve browsed through the designs I’ve seen so many examples that left me thinking “wow, I didn’t know you could do that with Sandbox!”

Much like CSS Zen Garden, the Sandbox designs are a testament to the power of CSS and how content and design can be separated so that new designs can refresh old archives.

    Thanks engtech your sandbox post and Dummy CSS + HTML file was a great help while designing the SandPress theme saved me hours of work.

    … and great job with your two entries, Engtech. Both have a cool look and are usuable “out of the box”. I’m sure there’s a lot of “engtech-lite” blogs out there now.

    I always love to see competitions like this, it amazes me what people can come up with! After seeing the Moo Point design I started to use another one of the author’s public designs.

    I have used sandpress and oriole on several client sites. These themes have clean code and they just look so fresh.
