IXL Learning got their new flash banner by running a design contest:
Help IXL Learning design new flash banners
Check out IXL Learning's Flash banner contest…
We're an online math practice site for pre-K through geometry (K-12).
What's your vision?
We're looking for new ad banners to try out across the Google Display Network. We can try either (or both) animated gifs, or Flash-based banners. We test with 160x600, 300x250, and 728x90 sizes. If any of the sizes of new banners win, we'll create the other less-trafficked sizes and try them as well. We're looking to increase our conversions per impression as compared to our existing banners which are attached. We're looking for these banners to appeal more to parents with children who need help with math, as opposed to teachers. Our site is http://www.ixl.com. Feel free to borrow art from our site solely for the purposes of this project.
I think the current banners (in ad-banners.zip) work well due to the eye-catching animation, and their colorful nature. I also think showing all the grade levels makes it clear that there's something for everyone. I think a new colorful design with lots of animation could work better. Also, an ad that shows more math branding could lower our CTR but keep conversions up, as our current banners are clearly educational, but don't say "Math practice" through every frame. Our banners get over 200 million impressions a month, so we'll really be getting your design out there!
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Flash banner starts at US$49.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their flash banner.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
IXL Learning collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected 6 winners!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
