Winners for “Straight Lines Only” Five Second Projects

May 13, 2010 - By 


Wow! With over 200 entries, this Five Second Project has become the most entered Project to date! With all those great entries, it was also the hardest to judge. After much deliberation, I think this spot by joshua catalano, with it’s 8 bit style transitions and lovely “straight” logo shows great variation in technique and does the most with the limitations. Want more straight line entries? Don’t forget to check out the great honorable mentions below or watch all the entries at the Five Second Project Archive.

A special thanks goes out to Neal Carroll who managed all the entries and kept this project running. This wouldn’t happen without his help… High Five! Hopefully, with Neal’s help, we can keep the frequency of these projects more consistent.
