Last month, Facer held a watch face design contest in collaboration with Samsung Mobile and aBlogtoWatch. Watch aficionados, designers and developers were challenged to submit their own unique watch face designs for the Samsung Gear S3, using the Facer platform.
The response was overwhelming! We received over 2,000 entries and were thrilled with the a range of designs from traditional dials to some that were outlandishly creative!
Our panel of judges composed of high-end watch designers and industry experts combed through the submissions, evaluating each based on their quality, creativity and innovative use of the smartwatch platform.
- Yvan Arpa: Swiss watch creator and designer of the Samsung Gear S3
- Ariel Adams: Founder of aBlogtoWatch
- Ariel Vardi: Co-Founder of Little Labs, makers of Facer
