The SS Theme Contest was an opportunity to create a default theme for SilverStripe 3.0. Contestants had to design a fully functional generic theme based on SilverStripe 3.0 alpha 2 that works for different formats such as desktop, forums, blogs and mobile.
I’ve designed a colourful, simple, responsive theme using HTML5 Boilerplate. The HTML and CSS is easily accessible and customisable, so it's good for building on as a 'starter' theme. It is perfect for any kind of business, organisation or personal site. I've called my theme Tangerine because it's a fun word and it's the main highlight colour component in my design.
The top five finalists were selected by public voting on Facebook, and afterwards the judges made a decision to pick an extra theme to rate as the 'Judges Choice'. Three out of the five judges independently from each other picked Tangerine out of the remaining fifteen themes. Which I'm very pleased about, so thank you SilverStripe and thank you judges!
