Banner Contest grand prize winner and poll

Grand prize winner

And the Banner Contest grand prize winner is: Allison!

Allison’s winning entry will be displayed as OfficeTally’s banner for the rest of the month. Maybe longer. :)

I fell in love with Allison’s banners the second I saw them — lush, beautifully composed, and a little edgy. Yum.

Congratulations, Allison! I will be emailing you shortly about sending you your prizes — a Dwight Schrute bobblehead and poster magnet!

P.S. If you don’t see Allison’s banner on this page, clear your browser cache and click the Refresh button.

Poll to pick fan favorite

Picking the grand prize winner? — easy. Picking the next top 20? — not so much.

In any case, I should have a poll up in the next few days or so. YOU, the OfficeTally reader, get to pick your favorite!


  1. Wow, I like it! Do you think you’ll be doing this again in the future? Or maybe other design competitions for logos for the site, etc.? It’d probably be a lot of hassle, but it’d be fun!

  2. Allison’s banner is amazing! Love it! Congrats to Allison on a job well done =)

  3. Great Job Allison and all of you that participated! Congrats to all of you on a job well done!

  4. Great job, Allison! Your design was definitely the cutest. I preferred the backwards clock version. hehe

  5. Wow, I like all of them, and it was a nice surprise to see a new banner.
    Great job and congrats Allison!

  6. The new banner was a sweet surprise. I LOVE Allison’s design, too. Congrats to all who participated.

  7. Congrats Allison and everyone who participated!!! :) Good contest idea, Tanster!!! :D It was fun!

  8. I’m a techno idiot so I don’t know how to clear my browser cache, but I’m uber excited to see the new banner. Can someone tell me how or post a link leading to an explanation? Thanks!!!!

  9. I’m in the same boat as #15 iHaveaDundie. I can refresh my page but the banner doesnt change and I have no earthly clue how to clear my cache browser. Can someone help?

  10. Great choice! I really liked all of her entries. I started messing with some, but that 20K limit killed me…she did a great job with the constraints!

  11. Yay! I loved Allison’s design, I’m so happy it won. Great work everyone, though!

    To Clear Your Internet Cache:

    Follow these menus: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Internet Options. When this comes up, there will be a thing that says “Delete Files” (about 1/2way down the box). Click on this. Your internet cache will be emptied. A warning: This takes a long time, mine has taken up to 10 minutes before. And also, it deletes your saved passwords and whatnot (I think!)

  12. All I can tell you is how to clear the cache/temporary internet files with Internet Explorer. You go to Tools, click “Delete Browsing History” and then choose “Delete Files” under Temporary Internet Files”.

  13. Amazing job Allison! Your banner gives the OT a fresh look.

    Oh, and just so you know, the little cars go in the compact spot, spot, spot-ot, spot-ot, spot-pot.

  14. Thanks Rachel!!!! The banner looks amazing, I would’ve never been able to do that! Keep all the great talent going :)

  15. I agree with ya # 9 about inserting quotes from the episodes in the quote randomizer. I’m suffering from Office withdrawal.

  16. Niiiiiiiiiiiice. Thanks Tanster for inserting quotes from the episodes in da quote randomizer mix.

  17. Was there a gallery or something where we can look at all of the entries?
