Pattern From Hell: Winners Announced!

Pattern From Hell: Winners Announced!


Thanks to the COLOURlovers who contributed to the Clients From Hell book giveaway and Pattern From Hell Challenge! We got some pretty cool patterns as well as some funny low-key patterns. Give yourselves a pat on the back!

The basic rule was to create a pattern (not necessarily from Hell) using a minimal color palette.

The Winners!

I'm wishing I had four books to give away because there was a tiebreaker...and number four was still a great contributor. Alas, I only have three...so let's see who gets them!

The most LOVED pattern was contributed by mooberri.  Using some well placed basic shapes and a minimal color palette it turned out quite nice I think! Congrats!

Mooberri's personal Client From Hell experience:

"Well my friend is the CD at one if the best design firms in Canada and i know how to use Photoshop so i know a lot about design." - This was said as the client pulled out hideous fliers he had designed.

Just_say_No.


Next up, we have a TIE between anonymuse and hepvintage. Both excellent pieces and quite different. Neither of them posted anything about clients, but great patterns.

Best Runner up!

I wanted to give a shout and pat on the back to sec9586 for her funny contribution of "It needs to POP!" She came in just behind the tie (above).

She posted that her favorite ClientFromHell.net quote was:

CLIENT: “Don’t worry, my daughter is very artsy, so I’m used to dealing with you people and your train of thought.” - story of my life lol - says sec9586

The pattern description is very funny too so don't miss that.

"If I hear one more client tell me that my design needs to POP, I'm going to POP their little head right off."

It_needs_to_POP!


Overall, thanks to everyone again for contributing in both patterns, comments and votes. It was a fun contest and we had some laughs about some pretty crazy clients we've all had!
