Design Throwdown Results!

The Design Throwdown results are in and the winner is Team Ahoy!  We only won by a small margin, so kudos go to our competitors Team Pinboard: Bien Living Design and Pantomime Papers for creatively repurposing the entire doormat. Thank you both so much for participating!

Here’s what people said about Team Ahoy:

•“Something about that cute little whale with “Ahoy” makes me smile.”
•“I think I would give this one to Team Ahoy (but I have a slight obsession with all things nautical, so I might be biased!)”
•“So cute!! That little whale makes me so happy!”

Here’s what people said about Team Pinboard:

  • “SO…I totally love the stenciled design…but the pinboard wins hands down in my book because it repurposed the whole thing! LOVE it!!”
  • “Oooh, I think they’re both really cute! I never would have thought to turn a doormat into a pinboard”
  • “Both look awesome, and the pinboard is really out of the box”
  • “They are both seriously cute.. I love the concept behind the pinboard one; never would have thought of that!”

    I love both results, and this competition idea altogether!

    The type in the whale spout puts Team Ahoy in the lead for me, but I really like how Team Pinboard re-purposed the material for a different use. Both are really smart.

    That door mat is just too cute! Something like that would look great at the front door of my island home :) Congrats on the win!
