Shining Stars This Week
Congratulations to egislr for being the 1st place winner in the Project Activity World Map Design Concept Challenge.  This design was chosen for it's intuitive timeline/activity map visualization, which was at the core of this concept exploration.
As far as the UI is concerned, it has a clean look and a great layout which makes for excellent readability.  Great job!

This new section is about showcasing tips from designers on how to design specific elements as easy and fast as possible.

How to create a donut graph?
by DaraK

The method I use for creating a donut graph is:
1. Draw a circle, without any fill color
2. Add a wide stroke (this will be the width of the graph)
3. Go to Stroke Properties or Border Color (depending on the program you work in) and add a Gradient color in Angle mode.
4. Set all the gradient colors in the proportions you wish to represent (50%, 30%, etc.)

How do you design a donut graph @riopurba? If you’re using the same method, feel free to show another quick design tip.

Topcoder Story
We’re starting a story with Topcoders by the designers. Every week one member adds a sentence and by the end of the year, we’ll have a complete and hopefully fun story. The purpose of it, it’s to brighten up your day a little :)

"One sunny day, in the park, Yoki sits quietly on a bench, tinkering with what seems to be some sort of mobile application design, he had a sad look on his face."

Designer Poster
Did you ever wanted to be a superhero character with your Topcoder friends? You can be in this section!  We’re going to make a super poster with the community designers.

1. Each designer will add his own head to another superhero body.
2. A designer can change as much as he wants the previous characters and even add comments.
3. The format is in PSD and no merging layers are allowed, so we can all further edit.

Starting this week: DaraK in Supergirl’s body.
Challenging next: oninkxronda
