Design Contests Needs An Identity

By Matthew Magain

If you’ve been following the SitePoint development blog, you’ll know that the SitePoint’s design contests is in the process of being relaunched as 99designs.

Given the nature of this community, it seems only fitting that the logo design for the new site be opened up as a contest to the members of the community that use the site.

From the brief:

99designs is the upcoming evolution of the SitePoint Design Contests, and as is only fitting we are holding a design contest for our new logo. The logo must fit in with the designs for the new site. We are looking for a fresh, simple logo and are offering a prize of $1,000, and we are guaranteeing that a winner will be selected and paid.

The contest went live today and will run for the next four days. There are already a handful of promising submissions, but if you think you can do better, get designing!

Currently experiencing some weird behaviour with WordPress tags. Apologies to any readers who received this post multiple times in their feed reader. We’re working to get it fixed so it doesn’t happen again!
