Running a Logo Design Contest on SitePoint

sitepoint logo contests design
I was in need of some relatively simple design work – a logo/badge stating, ’community optimized.’ Looking to get something done cheaply and not really sure what direction to go in, I thought a cool idea would be to find a website offering contests. Essentially, the contest owner puts up cash and then chooses from among various submitted designs from the community. After checking out a few possibilities like elance, I decided to give SitePoint Contests a try. Only 24 hours into the contest and I have 35+ entries so far. You can see the submissions by following this link.

Overall the results are a mixed-bag so far. My favorites of the bunch are this one by Xpressions and the top one by FatFrog. To this point I’d say 50% are something I would never consider, 25% are not great and 25% are candidates.

What I am not good at is giving feedback and that’s probably limiting my ability to adequately describe the look I want.

Anyway check them out and let me know what designs you like and/or how you’d improve upon existing ones. Six days remain so we may get more entries yet’ .

    That's exactly what it is, but it's a free market and these are
    designers clearly choosing to participate on their own accord. The
    quality of the designs however if reflective of the overall cheapness
    of the process

    It seems that you are just exploiting the designers, as you are just trying to get a great design on the cheap and disguising it as a 'contest'.

    Rumors have nike air max 1 been circulating for a while now regarding a 2010 release of the nike air max 2010 Air Jordan X (10) “Chicago,” but we have not seen any sort of confirmation in the form of catalog images or words from Jordan Brand representatives. nike air max 95 But today, we are extremely proud to present a nike air max 90 SneakerFiles exclusive confirmation that the Air Jordan nike air max nl X (10) will drop this month as a quickstrike release. Not just any Air Jordan 10, but rather the Chicago colorway with 45—the number Michael Jordan wore when he came back from retirement—on the ankle. This colorway of the AJ 10 is one of the most popular styles ever created, and will surely result in lines outside stores for days and may even cause riots. The Air Jordan X (10) “Chicago 45″ will release at only 150 sneaker stores across the United States with each retailer only receiving 23 pairs. Be sure to check out the additional photos and information after the jump!
