Snowflake 2015/6 Puzzle Results!

First, let's recognize the best of the bunch: spvincent, 01010011111, actiasluna, smilingone, franse and BCAA!

Now let's take a look at the designs that caught our eye when we went through them earlier this week:
This design, via spvincent was selected by jflat06!

01010011111 created a design that caught the attention of Seth Cooper during our deliberations.

free_radical had a number of great words to say about actiasluna's design.

smilingone! This is the design of yours that got my attention and I called dibs on it pretty fast, in case you wanted to know. (inky's pick)

bkoep was fond of the design from franse, so he claimed that as a favorite.

We also have a student working with us decide this design from BCAA was his favorite.

That wraps it up for this challenge - but we really appreciate all the effort put into the designs and hope you enjoyed the extra challenges from this year's "Snowflakes, Revisted".

What were your selection criteria?

Were some chosen for appearance, some for novelty, some for scoring well, and others for stability? I'd like to see a few lines from each selector about how they chose their favorites.

Congratulations to the winners!

This blog post and the selection of "snowflake" designs was simply meant to be a light-hearted, fun activity. All selections were completely subjective.

Apart from these "snowflakes," we applied a more scientific examination of top-scoring and other Scientist-Shared solutions from Puzzle 1174, just as we do for any design puzzle.

Thanks for relaxing us from score from time to time. This is fun and it will stimulate our creativity.

Congratulations Designers !!
