You know our brand well, in fact you all use our site everyday, so in the office here we thought who better to go ahead and design our new Christmas logo! The winning logo will be featured across the whole of the 99designs website over the Christmas period.
Just in case you don't already know, 99designs is the largest marketplace for graphic design anywhere in the world. With over 80,000 designers actively participating and almost 60,000 separate projects completed to date. We are the place that customers and designers come together to get web, logo and various other designs projects completed.
Our target audience is quite broad and covers designers, small business owners and the general public. The logo will be used across all of the 99designs site, including homepage and contest pages, so it will need to be suitable for all areas of the website.
The Christmas logo should be based on our existing logo and on our brand guidelines which can be found here: http://99designs.com/branding
Starting with our existing logo, we are looking for a fun way of presenting Christmas to our users, sort of in the way Google designs playful logos for special holidays. Users should still be able to recognize the 99designs logo, however you can edit and play with this as you see fit.
The winner will be the logo that our staff feels is the best fit for our website.
