ooprint 2009 Design Competition Prize Ceremony


We very recently had the pleasure of meeting the Grand Prize winner of our 2nd annual Holiday Card Design Competition, Caroline Bugnet!  


To congratulate Caroline on her artistic talents and her beautiful holiday card creation, we joined together and toasted to her success.  Ooprint president Rafik Smati also presented Caroline with her prize, a (rather large) check for 1000 euros.


Caroline, originally a costume and fashion designer, was kind enough to share her creative approach (and design secrets) with us and explain how she achieved her final design.  To embrace the spirit of the holiday season and the New Year, Caroline chose the theme of passing time for her card.  She then elaborated on this idea, using the image of an old timepiece from which numbers fall symbolizing years passing, and fireworks to bring a festive note to the arrival of the New Year.  Caroline admits that she “didn’t believe in online competitions” but decided to participate all the same, and is now delighted to have won!  Bravo, Caroline, you successfully created a magical and celebratory atmosphere with which we can all identify.


For more information about Caroline, you can visit her website.


Anxious to show off your design skills and compete for the Grand Prize?  The next ooprint Holiday Card Competition will be announced soon!


In the meantime, keep an eye on our blog for the latest news about upcoming projects for designers!

Meet the designers!

Thank you to all the designers who participated in the ooprint Holiday Card Design Competition!  The ooprint team and our customers were extremely impressed by your creations, and want to see more!  So, here is some information about the winners and finalists . . .


Grand Prize

Caroline Bugnet



Caroline studied fashion design and modelling at ESMOD in France, where she received the Grand Jury Award and received 3rd place in the ESMOD school-wide competition.  Today, she applies her design skills as a Textile and Graphic Designer for Kenzo and various other brands.  In addition to her passion for fashion and costume design, she has developped an interest in cinematography and film special effects.  She recently fused these interests in her first short film project, Russian Nightmare, which has been selected to participate in several film festivals. 


Jury Prize

Jennifer Da Silva Pimenta



Passionate about the web and multimedia since her adolescence, Jennifer received her diploma as a Multimedia Designer from the School of Applied Arts in Geneva.  She works principally as a freeland designer, mastering numerous design softwares and programming languages.  Her latest plans are the launch of her own wedding & personal stationery company, http://www.pimentas-collection.com, which will be open in February 2009.
