Design the BlenderNation Header


header2.jpgI guess we should rename ourselves 'BlendernaZen' this week - that reflects the feeling I got when I first saw Otávio Tatasoka's entry to our 'Design the BlenderNation Header' contest. I really appreciate the tranquility of this one - I think it makes a great header (especially after the dynamic graphic of Gustav last week!). Congratulations, Otávio! Your image will be on the site until next week.

To see the new header, you may need to press SHIFT+reload in your browser to force a cache refresh.

Keep the designs coming! Just paste them under this post. Also if your header image wasn't selected this week, I may still pick it next week.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. @knekke:

    Thanks for the blend. I will be looking at it in more detail over the weekend. It's funny, when I look at the jpg - I had a completely different take on the structure (maybe had to do with the background and contrasting - shake?). For some reason, I was getting a very silky feel from the image.
