5 great design debates from the past few days

With Desinion getting more and more popular around the world, and more opinions offered on your design concepts (over 20,000 opinions have been offered at the time of writing), we want to once again highlight 5 of the best design debates that we have seen in the past few days.


Watchmaker – Which option do you like more – By Anton


Anton set up a beautiful design debate between two very similar illustrations. Both illustrations showed a watchmaker, delicately and finely performing his craft, the different between them was that opinion one, had the watchmaker holding two pincers with both hands, whilst casting a careful eye on his work, the other design concept, opinion two, showed the mustached watchmaker, equally as concentrated, only this time, he is holding the watch with one hand and working on it with the other. The great thing about this design debate is the simplistic attention to detail. The illustration shows care and precision and that reflects a watchmakers traits.

Diagram – With shadow or without shadow – By Jelle


This was the first design debate submitted to Desinion that asked a question about the styling of a diagram. Created by the very talented Jelle, with the aim of finding out which diagram looks better, one with a slight shadow or one without and shadow. The Desinion community offered their opinion and one of these two options was an outstanding choice.

We appreciate how difficult it is to create diagrams that look good, so when this one came up, we instantly liked it for it’s colours, its strong shape, its sharpness and font choices.

Kitchen Table SF secondary logo / badge – By Amy Hood


This was Amy Hood’s first design debate, and what a great design debate it was. Amy is from the amazing design agency called Hoodzpah design co (check out their work / attitude, it’s awesome – www.hoodzpahdesign.com), and we are super happy to see her / their work being debated on Desinion.

Amy wanted to test public reaction between two designs that could be Kitchen Table SF’s secondary mark or badge. Option one included a circular band that would encompass the main graphic, and included the words Dogpatch (the area in San Francisco where Kitchen Table SF is located) Farm Fresh. Option two was more simplistic and stripped back, only showing the barn / factory graphic.

Both design concepts are brilliantly stylish, bold, cool and striking. This was a very popular debate that got the Desinion community commenting and offering their opinions.

As it stands with over 100 opinions being offered on these design concepts, one opinion is far more popular than the other.

Chapel Gate Memorials – minimalist vines? or detailed vines – By Nico Encarnacion


This is Nico Encarnacion’s 3rd design debate, and what a popular design debate it was. Nico created two excellent potential logos for Chapel Gate Memorials, both similar in style, yet had slight differences in the placement of the vines and the position of the gate within the circle.

The debate received a great number of opinions and comments, and of the two options proposed, one was proven to be way more popular than the other.

Pixilated Pizza – With edge or without edge? – By Gustavo Zambelli


We love an intentionally pixilated slice of graphic design. So what better than a pixilated pizza from Gustavo Zambelli who designs for the amazing Ricos Quesos and Aerolab in Argentina.

Gustavo wanted to know which pixilated pizza slice you thought would be better? A slice with a pixilated boarder, or a slice without a pixilated boarder and with a shadow.
