element14 has announced the winners of two recent creative contests that were held as part of the company’s new brand launch celebrations.
The ‘Design an element14 T-shirt’ and ‘Be in Your Element’ contests challenged the element14 online community forum members to reveal their creative side, while offering the chance to win substantial cash prizes.
Nader Tadros, Marketing and eCommerce Director for element14 Asia Pacific explains that “these competitions reveal the creativity of our element14 community, and it was really interesting to see what people came up with.”
The ‘Be in Your Element’ contest was won by Mr. Dave Jones, whose video response clinched the top prize after registering the most number of votes from the community members.
Dave is an active member of the element14 community, and has posted several video product reviews on the forum. He also runs an electronics engineering video blog and co-hosts an electronics radio show.
Ms. Diosa Blancaver from the Philippines won the t-shirt design contest with her fresh approach to the company’s brand image. Scoring high within the judging panel, Diosa’s entry creatively incorporated the tagline “Be in Your Element” and the company colours.
Diosa, who enjoys designing, said that she found the process challenging as it required her to combine aesthetics while adhering element14’s corporate identity. Being a recent user of the community, she was surprised to learn that it has much to offer.
“The community site is a very good outlet for electronic design engineers as they can share and gather insightful ideas and pointers from experts around the world,” she comments.
