Gideon6k3 wins April’s Top 9 at 99

The winner of April’s Top 9 at 99 proved the impossible — designer Gideon6k3 fit a HUGE elephant into a small square box! This is not magic, it’s just good design.

We love everything, from the layout to the texture to the 3D shading of the ear. And we double appreciate the details in that nice blue eye. Perhaps the loveliest of all, is the personification of the “A” in the company’s name, App Elephant.

A HUGE congratulations to Gideon6k3 for being April’s Top 9 at 99!
