Made Like It Matters Contest - 11/29 UPDATE - Congrats to Our Winners!


Since day one, we have been our customers number one fans. From large scale campaigns to their own personal websites or even their doodle books, the amazing level of creative energy that Media Temple customers bring to their work is unrivaled. It’s what motivates us, as a company, every day.

We want you to share that energy with us in our new contest: Made Like It Matters. This is a contest to show off a creation that truly matters. To your team, to your community, but most importantly, to yourself. We teamed up with Newegg and LG to give out some fantastic prizes, including amazing 43” and 32” 4k UHD widescreen monitors, gift cards to Newegg, and the now-famous Media Temple swag bag.

Grand Prize

GRAND PRIZE: Christian L. of Camas, WA –

In Christian’s own words: “When I was given the design for our new corporate site, I said to myself “no, this isn’t happening.” With the help of our designer I secretly started building two sites without telling my boss, but it won hands down.”

Second Prize

SECOND PRIZE: Andrew S. of Brooklyn, NY –

In Andrew’s own words: “This website is a direct reflection of the music within. I put a lot of effort into using mixed media and custom programming to create a truly unique experience for viewers.”

THIRD PRIZE (1/2): Samantha B. of Ames, IA –

In Samantha’s own words: “I wanted to help women live the life I’ve been so fortunate to live. iMarketerLife is the site that I will use to share my dream. It took a team of 11 passionate freelancers, from illustrators to coders, to knock it out in 3 months.”

Third Prize (22)

THIRD PRIZE (2/2): Jenaro D. of Austin, TX –

In Jenaro’s own words: “It was made entirely by a small team of advertising creatives outside of our day jobs and a bunch of favors along the way. It’s not often we get to do good within our profession, so this is special to us.”

FOURTH PRIZE (1/2): Ludvik H. of West Fargo, ND –

In Ludvik’s own words: “After 22 years of working for someone else, I finally decided to take my own advice and launched our own human-centered design agency, positive and with sustainability in mind to make ideas that matter, happen. Designed by us, hosted by Media Temple.”
