The <hr>-Contest Results – Download your fresh <hr>-line now!

Advertisement

Three weeks ago we have encouraged our readers to participate in our <hr>-contest by designing beautiful and creative horizontal lines. It was necessary, since this design-element was slowly disappearing and was often neglected in web design. But it is going to change now. We have received 1290 images and source-files from 384 designers across the globe. The result is an impressive collection of horizontal lines that designers can use for free without any restrictions whatsoever.

Many entries contained not only images, but also source-files, mostly for Photoshop or Illustrator. You can use them if you want to modify a design for your projects. For this purpose we packed these files in one .zip-archive with all source-files (109 files, 25 Mb). Of course, it would be better to provide the link to a .zip-package next to each of the designs presented below, but it would take many hours of work which we can actually use in a more effective way. We can not guarantee that all images in the .zip-package are correct as we haven’t tested all of them.

Unfortunately, some entries could not be considered for the contest. They didn’t meet our requirements, were too big or unusable. It was important for us that these files could be used in projects beyond the scope of our contest.

The BIG Gallery of <hr>-Graphics

Some ideas were more popular than the other ones. For instance, a zipper, flowers and ornaments, pencils, Pac-Man, birds, scissors. You can see almost everything from geometrics designs to oriental designs. Our smashing readers show that even a small tiny line can become a piece of art. For some users it may be too much, but here the idea counts most. And you can use as a starting point for horizontal lines in your projects. Or you can use some minimalistic designs. Most designs were black/white, and few of them were pretty colorful.

The ideas behind my 3 designs are mainly fresh and happy colours, while I love fresh colours. And I’m sure lots of other also does. But also 2 of them are a little unusual, and would fit nicely in a creative blog (in my opinion)

I love to experiment and explore the astounding features of Photoshop. In my green hr entry, I tried using pen tool to create bent vectors and combine it with other objects to see what’s the outcome. In my black entry, I just tried to make it simple and elegant by creating circles, lines and label it with binary code. I think it looks boring but it’s simple and clean, perfect for websites and blogs that want simple and clean horizontal divider.

HR RansomCutout letters create an hr divider that is funky and original. It is an array of colors and yet they all complement each other. This is definitely for an alternative blog/web site with humor and edge. I created multiple different backgrounds with jagged edges, so it looks as if they really came from the printed page. The graphic can easily be manipulated to cut the divider to make it longer or shorter or to rearrange the letter order. I didn’t want it to spell anything because that would be distracting.

I have designed the HR keeping in mind the theme of nature and subtle relaxing ideas (duck in water, clouds, leaves, etc). I feel that these break the monotony of using typical HRs with straight lines. The colors used are also soft and comforting to the latest in designs. I hope you like them. We might plan on making use of the ‘cloudy HR’ within our own website which is currently undergoing major revamping. You can see a general design idea at www.anautix.com/v2

After doing some research on web standards, I was surprised that none of the sites I found actually included code to create a visual representation of the topic of "web standards". I imagine it would be easy to work with the text used to code a site for design purposes (for instance, using the text "div" in the background of divs). This hr is a start to realize this approach.

My pink entry was inspired with pink dirty-like brushes and cartoony buildings. My blue entry was inspired with simple blue lines in different thickness to make it look stylish, simple and creative. And my last entry was the orange arrows from splashed paint. This entry was some kinda accident. I just played around with the paint splatter brush then suddenly arrows appear in my mind and I included it.. and… I’m somewhat satisfied of the outcome.

    This is seriously weird. The submission under #7 had 39 votes when I started reading this entry and by the time I had scrolled down and up again (took about 30 seconds) it already had 43 votes. And this does not look as cool as some other hr lines..

    I am not suggesting anything + am I did not submit anything myself, so I am not trying to bash competition, but still.. weird, as it is clearly not SO great piece.

    Dang. I totally forgot about the contest and I had a design very similar to #7 (which happens to be in the lead), just with stitches across it. Oh well, great job everyone on the designs. There were so many good ones! I think my second fave are the Pacman and simple dots with the hr tag.

  23. 23

    This is purely for a need of a constructive criticism but can I get some suggestions on what I could’ve done to get chosen? My reasoning behind the design was that hr is a separator but of related contents since they’re in the same page. So I thought hr should separate and relate at the same time. Great selections by the way. I love the tentacle one.

    Wow. I think the idea behind this contest is really cool. This blog has been a smashing success, and its number of subscribers is a direct reflection of the significant number of people it is able to reach as a result. That alone allows for a ton of diversity, which means less limits! I think that’s great. This contest in particular is neat because it offers designers a chance to participate in something creative, provides an incentive for doing so and in the end it adds an amazing resource of new graphics for all the web to discover and utilize. Thumbs up.

    I don’t agree with the chosen ones. I will not vote on them.

    0
  33. 33

    Yeah, I have to agree with others…there were many other submissions that should have made it in the top 25 and some others in the top 25 that should have been omitted. Its subjective but there is a distinguishable difference in some of the designs that were left behind. (I didn’t submit a design)

    I also noticed the heavy selection of #7 which I thought was “ok” comparatively. But 25% of all votes?? Either I’m losing my creative abilities and missing something about the design, or there has been some good word of mouth by the designer, or someone figured out how to remove cookies (like with a browser extension) and re-voted repeatedly.

    0
  34. 34

    I think the best thing that all the people which agree that many of the selected finalist are extremely worst that a great part of the other submissions is to vote “I don’t know” as I did. I’d like to see what would happen if that option would win :).

    This competition was a very creative one. I do hope that next time you’ll have a link that can show all entries so that all those artists who’d joined can view their entries just to confirm that you’ve received them- just like that of topcoder, logosauce etc.-just a suggestion.

    I remember you(Smashing Magazine) mentioned”Be creative, use unusual techniques, explore your skills, do whatever it takes — we’d like you to get really excited about it.” I just like to know where is the creativity in #8 :) and some of the entries which were mere lines! hahaha

    Goodluck!

    very nice, but i must say some entries on the top 25 are so-so. there are other designs that didn’t make it to the 25 spots that’s way better. i joined the contest, i admit mine were not picked, but it’s ok.

    oh, i just wanna say that voting on your poll can be cheated i guess, i tried to clear my cookies, history, refreshed then voila i can vote again. geez.. why is that? #7 may have been refreshing and voting nonstop for his entry (lol), no offense meant his design is ok but there are other designs on the list that’s far better than #7.

    cheers to the finalist.

    relax people! Even though I dislike some of the entries that went onto the final stage, I respect the decision and fully understand the fact that it was a “subjective” decision; it is nearly impossible to make it objective, and that’s fine! it isnt meant to be so. I think it’s best to abstain oneself from saying “they were pretty retarded choices” or “they all look crappy” or whatnot. #7 ftw!

    I like them all! Althought I wouldn’t have chosen those 25 ones as the top ones (but yeah, tastes…).

    And it’s hard to chose something without context. For example the sewing needles by Regina Silva and Ehren Harber are great and would be perfect on a sewing site, but maybe not on another kind of site. (unless there’s a ‘fabric’ style on all the page maybe).

    The #5, #6 and #7 are some really nice entries. Hard to chose, I went for #7 because it’s funny to imagine a monster lurking under the webpage :)

    But I think my favorite is the autumn branches by Adrian Pauly.

    Agreed :/

    Most of the ones I liked aren’t in the top 25.. And I can’t see why some of the ones which are in the top 25 made it, they look like something I used when i was 8 for my first site O_O

    Although they are all great and original looking designs, I think some of these are simply too big for what they’re meant to be used for. My vote goes to #8

    You see? This is what I hate about competitions…I always feel that people who desrve to win never do. Dont get me wrong, Im not saying anyone’s work is ugly in fact most of them are just too beautiful and inspiring but I think there are some designs that should have not been on the top 25 and some that are there dont really deserve to be there. Number seven is really cool, but I think theres much nicer hr designs that ought to be winning the prize and I think a lot of people and designers would agree. (OR NOT)

    Where’s mine?

    My idea is very similar to three of the finalists, and they don’t show it!. Maybe because I made it with open source software and gave him a SVG file (which is an open and standard format) and not a PSD file which is not standard and not open to everyone who don’t have the money to pay for the Adobe Suite…

    Bad SM, bad…

    Thanks for showing mine, even though it’s not a finalist. It was a very pleasant surprise.

    I have to agree with @Jo that a lot of these look exactly like clip art/imgs that existed when I was web designing in the mid-90s (things like zippers/stitches, birds on a line, pac man etc. i loved jim hargreaves, ive never seen anything like that before and it is beautiful and would be a strong addition to a design, not just a novelty.

    0
  100. 101

    A lot of these designs aren’t bad! I liked the following and find them very usable:

    Ray Pham’s sneakers, Ricardo Mestre’s tentacles, Nour Malaeb’s equalizer, Eva Hellman’s birds on a wire, Ehren Harber’s needle and tape, Tammy Heart’s flower/lily, Vane Konsturanov’s pencil, Adrian Pauly’s autumn branch.

    0
  104. 105

    Voted for #8 – of the selected 25, it’s the only one I would actually want to use.

    As for some of the other finalists, IMO the designs are way too large and colorful, and therefore would be too much of a distraction if actually used to divide content. Taking up <100px of space just for a divider is not effective nor efficient design. For me, HR is an organizational tool to divide space and should not draw attention away from the content it is supposed to organize.

    I have to agree with a lot of the other people here. I had to vote for “I don’t know” as none of the ones I like made it into the Top 25.

    I’m sorry to be critical but a lot of these look like free Publisher clipart. The best HRs as far as technique, usability, and originality are not even in the top 25. I did not submit, so this is not sour grapes. I’m just disappointed in your choices for the published entrants and finalists.

    Competition in art is never the final say on the best. It’s too subjective. So I don’t get why people are getting so excited about the poll. Must be the prize!!

    Everyone, the biggest mess in the zip are my source files, sorry but I send files for S. to see Im the author, not for you to guess whats that shoe doing there. I didnt zip them to follow rules & I know it looks stupid. Its my first contest and I thought only the final files will be shared.

    Anyway, I hope it was just a mistake and my files get to be shown here, if they are good enough to share they should be good enough to show. Thanks S.

    I hate to be a negative Nelly, but most of these are pretty garish and scream 1996; they’re hardly good examples of effective design. The examples in the original post are much better than almost all of these.

    I sure hope this contest is at least a little tongue-in-cheek. What’s next, animated GIF contest? If so, I’ll get right to work on dancing hamsters…I’ll be a shoo-in.

    for Three reason i liked the 4th one because it solves the purpose of HR, 1) soothing design, 2) light weight & 3) increases readability if text around it

    Ended up voting for 8 – elegant enough to actually use. I also liked 12 (cute) but like most people I couldn’t imagine actually using many of these in this decade. But made me smile anyway.

    Jim Hargreaves work made me want to open an editor and incorporate it into a design.

    Thanks to all those who were brave enough to give it a go – without your effort we would all be looking at whitespace.

    It’s just sad to see people accusing some designers like this. It’s a contest, not everyone wil be happy with the finalists or the winner – but it’s just childish to say the designer with the most votes is cheating.

    Anyways, congratulations – and a huge thank you – to all the desginers who contributed. Even if some of the designs are very large/colorful/dated/whatever, this is still a great source of inspiration!

    Some of the posts are nice … but some … damn! Try imagining the images between texts more then once. Some will look very fucked up and disturbing. To me the “hr-tag” is used for functionality to make things clear, not big images distracting you from reading texts.

    This is what i created, wasn’t selected here though.

    I agree… much better stuff in the big group then what got selected. Regardless, I love having these tools in my box, thank you!

    No one can deny that there are some beautiful designs in this post. With that said, I have to ask, what were many of you thinking? I can visualize a lot of these being in tutorials on what not to do. Very sad to see that people actually thought they looked good upon submission.

    Thank you to those who actually used design sense and created an amazing hr element.

    All very very good, but #7 Is nice simple, clean with great colours. I love it.

    all nice and good graphic work but from a web design perspective, where the role of the HR is as a divider between content, most of these are useless and either take up too much space or too much attention from the real content. If colors, I think they should be suttle and not have too much contrast in regards to the rest of the content. It’s really hard to judge these HR just by their sole presence, what we really need to see, is in a context on a page.

    I think most of them are bad examples of designer overflow versus real life usability.
    So number 1 – if I have to choose.

    Pointless contest. Way too many visuals. What is this? The Internet equivalent of Walmart? Come on guys, work on a better gui for the presentation of multiple graphics, this is just ridiculous.

    Do you know that the service used for the poll (PollDaddy.com) let people vote without cookies enabled and, most important, doesn’t check the ip address?
    It means that anyone can vote many times just disabling the cookies in the browser.
    Not to break my mouse, I wrote a script to vote for me for the same option and…about 500 votes for the option “I don’t know” are mine. I chose that option not to to damage anyone, obviously.
    Think about it :).

    HI SM,
    I just would like you to clarify what do you mean by this -”Unfortunately, some entries could not be considered for the contest. They didn’t meet our requirements, were too big or unusable. It was important for us that these files could be used in projects beyond the scope of our contest.” :) I wish you could be more elaborative with your instructions like most of the articles here in your site. And when will you announce the winner? thanks

    Are you guys to let us know who won the contest?….I actually cant believe that it looks like that number 7 will be taking or has taken that sweet prize home.

    Please do publish it when you’ve decided who the winners is and let some of us that are annoyed by who is winning say why we are unhappy about the choice that’s been made!

    Still love you SM and fully understand that its not you guys that chose number 7 to win.

    Really great designs. I could fit a lot of them into various designs my 2 web designers do.

    It is a great idea to revive the “hr”. I am seeing it less and less now.

    I have been inspired to update the company website now (www.richescreative.co.uk) and make an image “hr” to replace the defult “hr” grey line I have.

    I will set all this up once I have finished converting the site from tables (Arrrrghh) to div layers. Wish me luck :-)

    Thanks for giving your ideas. The first thing is that learners have a solution between federal student loan and also a private education loan where it truly is easier to go with student loan debt consolidation than through the federal education loan.
