So there’s this website called 99designs where graphic designers can enter contests and the winner gets paid by the company. Although I have mixed feelings about design contests, it still seems like a cool idea for someone like me who is just looking for projects to work on. Of course, as I mentioned, the winner does get paid, so its not completely “crowdsourced” design.
For my first attempt, I decided to design a logo for a new site called newtocityyardsale.com, a site that connects people living in the same area with buyers and sellers of items. These were the parameters (see full list here):
- Color preferences
- Green, Yellow, Blue
- To be used on
- Print (Business cards, letterheads, brochures etc)
- Online (Website, online advertising, banner ads etc)
- And here is what I submitted:
Which is your favorite? I’ll let you know if I get picked, but there were pretty great contenders, so I’m not holding my breath. Maybe one day!
