The voting is finally over, in what appears to be a VERY close poll.

We asked our readers, and the Magento community to vote for their favourite design, from a selection of two, which would be released as a free theme.

The winner is design one:

We’ll start converting this design into a full Magento theme soon, and then release it as soon as it’s done!

Thank you to everyone who voted, and bloggers that gave us coverage on the internet!

It’s been a while since we announced our free Magento theme, Amplitude (back in October 2008), so we thought it’d be nice to let you know what’s going on with it.

Fortunately, we’ve had so much client work to do with Magento, our schedule has been full since about 2 weeks after the first Amplitude post.  Obviously we give priority to client work, which in turn means that unfortunately we’ve not yet been able to dedicate the time to Amplitude that it deserves.

Recently we created a new design for it, and created a vote topic on the Magento forum:

We’d love to hear your feedback on both designs, so leave your comments either on the forum, or as a comment on here.  Once we’ve received sufficient feedback we’ll start building the winning theme.

To answer a question in the previous Amplitude topic by a commenter, the release date for Amplitude is not yet set.  We’re looking for some feedback first.  If all goes as expected, then we’re looking towards the end of February (but that’s not guarantee).
