99 Designs – Awesome Resource for Jewelry Designers
I’m a brand new user or www.99designs.com. I discovered the site thanks to Tim Ferris, who used the site to post a contest for his new book cover.
Here’s how the site works: you post a contest for a design job – need a business card designed, a site, a book cover or like in my case an ad banner for your business? All you need to do is post an ad aka a contest and depending on the price you’re willing to pay that’s how many designers will submit their entries. You rate them everyday, make comments about the corrections, etc. You can even create a poll with the designs and ask your friends to help you.
Rating and choices do take a lot of time. My recommendation would be to try and spend time to draft a very specific draft of what is it that you have in mind. The contest lasts a week and in my case I opted to pay $145 for it.
Here are my favorite designers so far competing to win the Lucid New York jewelry ad banner contest.
You see what I mean that it can be a lot of work? They all seem beautiful!
