  • Winners of the Talented Wordsmith's Twitter Contest

    Our most recent "Web Designers are Sexy" t-shirt giveaway has ended, and as always, we had some great entries. This latest contest required entrants to craft a tweet expressing their love for LightCMS. The catch was that the sentence had to use one letter as many times as possible (such as in assonance or consonance).

    The Winners:

    And the three winners we chose for this Web Designers are Sexy giveaway are:

    Steve Wilson: Well-informed, wise Web workers wanting to wield wicked, wondrous, winning websites will willingly whoosh to @LightCMS. Word.

    Taenia: A CMS should be simple, sexy, supremely flexible and serve up some sweet design. So, salutations @LightCMS.

    Carlos R.: The night eight bigheaded higher-ups were caught in a tight fight, I got caught up, weighed their thoughts and brought light to their delight; they straightened up & used @LightCMS :)

    Honorable Mention:

    @enchantmenot showed us some love with this elated explosion of e's:

    extremely elegant and eloquent, expressive and envisioned, @LightCMS

    @ahhaweb generously submitted:

    @lightcms makes my mournful mundane Monday mornings more meaningful, more magical, more mysteriously mine.

    Congratulations to the winners! Be sure to send us a pic of yourself sporting the shirt for our gallery. And thanks so much to everyone else who participated. Stay tuned for our next giveaway!

  • Our favorites from the "Your Best LightCMS Design" contest

    The "Your Best LightCMS Design" contest (via lightcms.com/sexy) is over, and we've looked carefully at the entries to choose three of our favorite designs. All of the designs submitted were well done, and all of them will be eligible for display in the LightCMS Gallery. Plus, their designers are receiving our fabulous new "Web Designers are Sexy" t-shirt. But only three were chosen by us to be featured in this post. Check out the winners below. Remember, each of these sites is running on the LightCMS system.

    Fit for Life, designed by MinistryPixel.com

    This design has quite a bit going for it. The bright, clean portrait at top makes the page look professional and inviting. The color scheme is very cohesive overall and plays wonderfully off the logo, imagery, and content of the site. Its organization is clean and the varied headers are used well. Really nice design.

    Do-It-Yourself SEO, designed by Arora Designs

    This design is a great example of a very clean eBook marketing site. It's clean, crisp, and well-organized. The organization here is key because it invites the visitor to actually read the content. The text utilizes various attractive header styles, a solid mixture of fonts and colors, and gutters wide enough to guide your eyes through the content.

    ChrisBorah.com, designed by Chris Borah

    Chris Borah's design is simple and clean, the colors are bright and attractive, and the font is crisp and easy to read. There's some great JavaScript being used on the page as well, which allows visitors to access more content without loading a new, separate page. One of my favorite aspects of the site is how responsive the controls are. You hit the toggle and instantly you have a quick, clean transition.

    This page is also a great example of how JavaScript can be used to extend a free site's three page limit.


    We hope you'll gain inspiration from these talented designers who are making the most of the LightCMS system. Thanks to all who participated in our contest. We will be hosting similar contests in the near future where you too can win the new Web Designers are Sexy t-shirt! Be sure to check out the WDAS homepage and to follow us through our blog, our Twitter, and our Facebook so you'll know when the next contest begins!
