Custom Graphic Design in Just 24 Hours at 99designs.com

October 31, 2009

Have you ever had a situation arise where you needed the skills of a graphic designer – FAST? We recently found ourselves in that position when 99designs.com got the opportunity to exhibit at BizTechDay in San Francisco – just two days before the show.

Immediately, we went into scramble mode to try to pull together a professional booth and just to make things a little more interesting – we decided that we wanted to run a special promotion for BizTechDay attendees. To make it happen, we needed a slick tabletop poster that described what we were offering.

It was a perfect opportunity to “eat our own dog food” and demonstrate how you can get fantastic custom design done in just 24 hours!

Here’s what we did:

We quickly posted a project on 99designs.com – briefly describing that we wanted a small table top poster that said:

Win a $1000 Design Make Over
for Your Business
from 99designs.com

We further indicated that we wanted the colors and style to be consistent with the overall look and feel of 99designs.

We offered $149 and “fast-tracked” the project so that it remained open for submissions for only 24 hours.

Here is the link to the project:

In 24 hours we got 123 custom designed submissions and were absolutely thrilled with the result.

Here is the winning poster:
