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
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:
