“Everybody loves choice until you have to choose… and that’s where friends come in”

An ancient proverb that I just made up

 

One of the best things about 99designs is having so many great designs to choose from… BUT choice necessitates a decision – and decisions can sometimes be hard!

That’s why we’ve introduced a new voting feature that allows you to easily create a poll so you can get your friends, colleagues, social networks or even the twitterverse to help you choose the best design from your project.

Creating a poll is easy!

1. Click the “Invite friends to Vote” button on your main project page
Click the Invite Friends to Vote Button

2. Choose up to 8 designs you’d like your friends to vote on

Choose Your Designs

3. Share the poll with your friends

Share this poll with your friends

That’s it – simple huh.

The best news is… you can create as many polls as you’d like so you can share one with your colleagues over email and invite your Facebook friends to another – the sky’s the limit!

And you don’t even have to wait until the project has ended to create a poll – you can run a poll at anytime durning the project and even use it to help generate feedback to give to the designers!

Feedback is the Key
Whether you are looking for a fantastic logo design, web design, T-shirt design or any other design – Giving designers good feedback is the key to getting great results at 99designs.com!

How to leave Feedback

1. General Comments – You can leave general comments/feedback that is applicable to all the designers in the main comment area at the bottom of the main project page

2. Individual Designer Feedback – To leave specific feedback for an individual designer:

Click the design you wish to leave feedback for
A page for that designer only will open
You can write comments directly into the comment field at the bottom
Thanking the designers for their submissions is always a good idea

3. Star Ratings – It is a good idea to use the star ratings as it gives the designers a better idea as to which direction you want the project to head. You can assign between 1 and 5 stars.

Here is an easy way to think about the stars:

1 star – Thanks but no thanks
2 stars – Not bad but needs significant work
3 stars – Solid effort, interested in seeing more
4 stars – Strong submission
5 stars – Perfect

You can SAVE A TON OF TIME by using the feedback tool – http://bit.ly/dmS9NZ

To ELIMINATE a design that is way off the mark or otherwise inappropriate:

Hover over the design
Click the “X” that appears in the top corner
