Starting Again got their new flash animation by running a design contest:
$1,400 combined prize w/daily feedback - Site Design and Flash Movie for a new Search product for small-business.
Check out Starting Again's Flash Animation contest…
Need a coded Wordpress theme and Flash movie for homepage. (If you're a good designer who would like to participate but don't have Wordpress experience, please go ahead and just note that fact in your submission. We are willing and able to assist with that part of the work if required to implement the best design.)
What's your vision?
Tagline: The fastest way to find what you are looking for Desired Color Scheme: logo colors (specific shades of blue and orange) must be used, in addition to whatever other colors designers feel are appropriate Desired Style: Clean, high-tech, friendly, "Web 2.0" Accepted File Formats: Standard Web Formats (.jpg, .gif or .png); Vector Formats (.eps, .pdf or .ai); Layered Formats (.psd or .tiff); All source files MakeTime is an entirely new search product for small businesses. It allows users to search for information across all of the data sources that they care about (CRM, bug/issue tracker, email, etc.) from a single integrated interface. Product is currently in private beta with a handful of users and a new website design is needed prior to formal launch. Design must incorporate the existing logo, but other than that, the sky's the limit - we hope to see some creative stuff! Features of the product: http://maketime.com/2007/09/12/maketime-features/ User docs: http://docs.maketime.com/userguide.pdf , http://docs.maketime.com/quickreference.pdf Logo source files: http://docs.maketime.com/logo.eps Current website organization is a little haphazard, but it includes links for test-driving a demo of the application, and other content that you may want to review for background. For reference, some website designs we like are: http://www.serena.com/index2.html http://atlassian.com http://openkapow.com/Default.aspx http://www.kapowtech.com/products_data_collection.html http://www.austrade.gov.au/ This contest includes both a website design component and a Flash component because we want the homepage to have a little movement/excitement via a small Flash movie. Feel free to present ideas for one or both. Feedback will be given daily, at minimum. Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback regarding our contest. Thanks in advance! This contest was originally listed in multiple categories: - Flash Animation - Web Page Design (Coded)
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets.
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 animation.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Starting Again 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.
