Community & Non-Profit
The Westminster Public Library (WPL) serves the people in the City of Westminster in Colorado. In today's environment, a libary is about more than just books; we support community lifelong learning, growth, play, information, education, recreation, engagement, culture, digital resources, literacy of all types, collaboration, equity of access and empowerment.
What's your vision?
The Westminster Public Library (WPL) in Westminster, Colorado is working with Boopsie® for Libraries to configure and install a new mobile app called WPL In Touch. We have the functionality and platform layout, all we need is creative, energetic graphic design to finish the look! The selection process will have two (2) phases. Qualifying Phase: Please include two images with each entry. We are looking for a design of a cross-platform App Icon (128 x 128 px) and a related Banner image (640 x 80 px): • App icon design should not include any words. Image only. • No specific color scheme is required. • Banner image should incorporate proposed app icon and the text “Westminster Public Library.” Selected Finalists (Up to 6): Selected finalist will be asked to create 12 additional icons (80 x 80 px) for related app menu items. Icons will share design style and color theme with app icon, banner, etc. Icons will be images, no text required. The 12 menu items are as follows: • Search the Catalog • My Account • Location & Hours • Download eBooks & Audiobooks • Programs & Events • Databases • Contact Us • BookLook (ISBN Barcode Scan) • Facebook • BookLetters (Reviews and Recommendations) • Reading Lists (for all ages) • SmartPay (online payment for fines and fees) Deliverables: In addition to the images detailed above, the winning designer will also provide: One (1) Splash Image (360 x 360 px): The image should be a maximum of 360 pixels wide or 360 pixels high. The image will be fit centered in the phone's screen and scaled to fit if it is larger than the screen size. The pixel color in position 0,0 (upper left corner), will be used to fill the background of the rest of the screen that the image does not cover. Please don't use transparency in this image. One (1) Watermark Image (360 x 360 px)]: The watermark image should be 360 x 360 pix maximum ON A WHITE BACKGROUND (similar to the Splash image). The watermark image needs to be 5-10% opacity – do not make this image transparent. All files should be delivered as .png file types, as well as .ai or .eps versions of each.
Stylistic elements: We would like the graphics to be creative and energetic, not static or too traditional. We’d like to discourage the use of stereotypical library icons, like books, unless you use them in a creative way. Remeber, libraries are about more than just books. Potential for Future Work: The City of Westminster would like to establish a long-term relationship with the chosen designer to provide a consistent image (fonts, app shapes, etc.) for apps developed in the future by other city departments.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Icon or button starts at €179.

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 icon or button.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
CityofWestminster 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.
