Smashing Magazine’s 2nd Anniversary

It happened again. Today, Smashing Magazine celebrates its second birthday. We are two years old now and we are proud of what we have achieved over these years. To celebrate our anniversary, we could do any number of things. For instance, we could organize a huge giveaway—as we did one year ago—but, of course, bigger and more overwhelming. However, we won't do that; after all, we're giving away stuff every week and we have many contests where our readers can win truly smashing prizes. (New contests are already on their way.) Posters Instead, we could share some insight about the highlights of Smashing Magazine over the last 12 months: an exploding number of page views, hundreds of thousands of backlinks, numerous testimonials and rewarding ad revenues. But we would probably sound like show-offs and we can't afford to do that; after all, we have only published 301 posts so far.

Two Days Left To Enter Guest Author Contest

We would like to remind you that the deadline for our guest author contest is approaching. Best guest articles will be published on Smashing Magazine with the link to the author’s site. The best guest post will be awarded with Apple MacBook Air. Apart from that then further writers will be awarded with designer laptop sleeves, bags and books.

MacBook Air

Participation is easy. To get a chance to win one of the prizes it's enough to submit a short discussion article (max. 1200 characters) or an original and beautiful top-10-list. Further details, rules and awards can be found in the original article. We have received 90 entries so far. Thanks to all participants!

The main idea behind the contest is not to get as many guest articles as possible, but to find talented guest authors who will want to work with us after the contest and get properly paid for their work. If you would like to write for us beyond the contest — drop us a line, we’ll figure something out.

Two days are left. You can submit your article and top-10-list until 23:59, 5th of August 2008.

Get creative, folks!

Winners of the Logo Contest

Smashing Magazine Logo Winner

It took us five days in a row to find five best designs for our Smashing Magazine Logo Contest. It was hard and it was a neck-and-neck race for 5 competitors. You can find selected designs in the article Logo Contest - Sketches and Designs.

And now we have the winner.

It was a tough decision to choose 5 best logos from over 190 sketches. Our choice might not look reasonable for all of you, but you have to keep in mind that the logo should fit perfectly to our color scheme and our site layout. We had to create many screenshots with different logo variation and check, whether the look we get is optimal. Not every beautiful logo we liked first passed this test, so only "bulletproof" logos remained.
