We present to you the winners of our Autoblog "Redesign Our Business Cards Contest". Congratulations go out to Sean S. who designed the winning Autoblog entry and Jeremy K, the designer of AutoblogGreen's new business card. Both winning entries manage to combine all the traditional elements of a good business card design, while including some out-of-the-box elements we really liked.

There were so many entries and at least eight or so for each contest that could have easily been chosen as the winner. We've included those very close runner ups after the jump for your review, as well as a nod to those excellent designers who submitted them. This contest was a great success and thanks go out to everyone who entered, as well as Pioneer for putting up the prizes. Both Sean S. and Jeremy K. will have a Pioneer AVIC-D2 satellite navigation system in their hands shortly. We'll be having more big contests like this in the near future, so stay alert.

      Hey autoblog . . . since you got all these wonderful ideas for free, and these folks really put their heart and soul into this, why don't you post the websites or contact information for these talented designers so that we can contact them?

      In particular, I would like to know how to contact Dennis D, Matthew V and Jeremy K.

      ezbst, Dennis' design should've won hands down - only if Autoblog would allow their logo to be changed! All the others had too many gradients and I doubt any of them in print will look anything near their digital versions.

      Great designs all around (I'm jealous), but I have to disagree on having the card ripping off "Cars" as the winning submission.

      It was an honor to receive runner up. My website for anyone interested is www.oriongraphix.com

      It's not Pixar, i believe it is the 1957 Cadillac Eldorado that is being ripped off, but it sure does look great. Classic Americana and whatnot.

      Daniel M's ABG, mrlee's ABG, Zach S's AB & Matt H's AB are my favourites.

      Lots of great work. Go one, change the logo! Redo the site theme, great material here. Well done.

      What is with the double repetition of the logo? I am underwhelmed to say the least. Shawn B's entry looks much better and far more professional.

      The Green entry, on the other hand, is quite nice...

      I must say I agree with the strong Carfax and Cars similarities. I like the designs, but I dunno, I think that's a bit too close. I really like Matt H's and Matt V's. The winning Autoblog Green one is really nice.

      Yes ripping off Pixar isn't great for your portfolio...
      Sean is very smart though, he knew Jeff was Crazy about that movie...

      Matt H's Autoblog card card kicks ass. That should have won for normal Autoblog! The one that won for Autoblog green is best though.

      Well, as the Cars logo is a rip off of a real car, some how I doubt Pixar is going to care. That and it's a simple business card... sheesh. Not like this is the poster for the next Dreamworks film.

      I love almost all the designs, though I really have to bow my hat to Shawn B's card. Brilliant design IMHO.

      And for all the "designers" out there... get over yourselves. It's a contest. John said he wanted to have fun, and I think he did. If you're so great, then why didn't you enter and win? I plan on using my design as a portfolio piece. And I'm proud that it beat some really great designs, and I didn't just get the job cause somebody picked my name randomly on Google.
