99 Designs brings a selection of designs to your fingertips — and you decide which one you love. You start by filling out a “design brief,” where you describe the concept of your design, whether you’re looking for a professional logo or an entirely new blog design. Assign a level to your design contest, with the understanding that the higher the “prize,” the greater the interest. As your designs roll in, give feedback to try to narrow the focus for 99 Designs’ more than 972,000 designers. At the end of the 7-day contest, you should have a design you love, with a copyright agreement for your usage.
