I’m stoked to be judging this year’s Annual Design Awards 2012 alongside Ivan Chermayeff and Sagi Haviv of “Chermayeff & Geismar”. Chermayeff & Geismar is a firm known for designing logos for companies like National Geographic, NBC, Xerox, Mobil, PBS, Chase, Showtime, etc. Other judges include notable designers like Elliot Jay Stocks, Fabio Sasso of Abduzeedo and Jacob Cass.

Thanks to everyone who participated. You’re all very talented and I hope I had a lot more to invites to give away, but I’ll post them whenever I get more.
Update (06/14/2012): I scored 2 more invites so I’m giving away 4. Sorry guys but my schedule has been really crazy. I promise to post an update over the weekend. Hang in there guys!
These two Dribbble invites have been sitting in my account for a while. I’ve been meaning to give them away, but never got around to do so and I keep forgetting about it. Today, I just renewed my PRO account and remembered having these two. So to all those who’d like to sign up for Dribbble, please leave a comment (with your name and a link to your work) below. It’s the best way for me to keep track of those who’ve been wanting invites, otherwise, it’ll probably slip through my mind again. And don’t forget to follow me on Dribbble :)
