Panel Winner

portfolio,projects — Danielle on September 16, 2008 at 2:21 pm

If you have been following the blog you may remember my ongoing petition to get all of you to vote for my entry in the Dr. Martens design competition.  Back in July, my boot got totally stomped all over by those who were able to rally forums support, and I gave up and forgot about the competition for a while.

The good news is that my boot has been picked as the Panel Winner!  It feels incredible to be selected out of over 12000 entries by a panel of very cool UK design and art professionals.  Yes, this means that the boot will be manufactured and sold – watch this space for updates.

Thank you Dr. Martens, and thank you to everyone who supported my boot.  I am very happy.

    4. […] That’s not the important thing.  She lost the popular vote.  Once again: unimportant.  She won the panel vote. So Mr. Dr. Martin will be making her boot and I assume people will be wearing it.   But, once […]

    16. Fantastic! Honestly, I’d been hoping you’d win, not only for your sake and the world fame and jillions of dollars that would surely follow, but also for pure selfishness–I want a pair REAL BAD! Today I was voting for a friend’s band in a local promotion, and it reminded me of your boot and the contest. So I came to check, and lo and behold, what awesome news! Thank god it wasn’t one of those horrific graffiti-smiley-face monstrosities that climbed their way up the charts. Way to go, lovely!

    25. […] Last May, I asked you to vote for Danielle Meder’s boot design.  I guess some of you did.  That’s not the important thing.  She lost the popular vote.  Once again: unimportant.  She won the panel vote. […]
