A panel of judges including Perez Hilton has picked a winner in the official Los Angeles County Department of Public Health condom design contest (which, uh, happened):
The stark and simple design features an image of a black bowtie, accompanied by the words “Suit Up” in Mad Men-ish font. Classy! Maybe even classier than the official Louis Vuitton rubber. And because the contest was called “L.A.'s Next Sex Symbol“…
… we suppose that honor goes to L.A. graphic designer Adam Lyons, the stud behind Perez' big pick. His Facebook photos certainly live up to the title:
Lyons' design is classy and all, but we're also huge fans of the 11 runners-up, some of which will reportedly get a spot on your bedside table as well.
According to City News Service, “the top 10 designs will appear on about 1 million condom wrappers… distributed free throughout the county by ONE Condoms.” Unlike Lyons, however — who “will receive $750 in gift cards and a 19-inch LED TV with built-in DVD” — their only reward will be a dinky “$200 in miscellaneous gift cards.”
