2017 WINTER DESIGN CONTEST WINNERS
For over a decade, the ONE Design Contest has given artists and advocates a platform to express their views on sexual health. Winning designs are featured on ONE’s signature, round condom wrappers. ONE will also donate a total of 50,000 condoms to the artists’ health organizations of choice.
A combination of voting by ONE staff and a panel of guest judges determines the Top 50 Finalist designs, which are then voted on by the public. Public Voting helps determine the Grand Prize Winner, Runner-Up Winner and 8 Honorable Mentions. ONE staff also selects extra Favorites called Staff Picks.
Think you got what it takes to design ONE? Submit your art.

Michele Alfano is the founder and creative director of Michele Alfano Design, a collaborative studio focused on the nexus of interior design and technology. The daughter of an inventor, she creates objects and spaces that are poetic and bold, and that are based on the belief that everyone deserves influential design to enhance the experience of daily living. She brings her approach — a “tailored emotional intelligence” — to life by beckoning spaces to challenge one to think, feel and want to touch. Trained as an a architect, she is recognized for her architectural eye and dedication to creating customized interiors and architectural details for each project. Her architectonic signature reveals a crisp, modern point of view fused with an imaginative use of color, form, pattern and texture, producing visually sleek, masculine sophistication. She is an allied member of the American Society of Interior Designers, and holds a master’s degree in architecture from the University at Buffalo and a bachelor’s degree in applied mathematics from Union College.
