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 web page design (coded).
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
vlon 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 a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
