I am a designer as well. Just delegating this task to 99Designs to save time and get a fresh perspective.
Extended the contest for another day.
Just a few tips for those of you who want to submit your design concepts.
I am a designer, so please keep that in consideration when you make your submissions, use of generic elements and clip art symbols is not recommended.
Please keep in mind, this contest is for business cards as well. So submit those with your "original designs".
Here are the prospective winners. See link below.
I will be contacting each one of the candidates to give tips on how thety can improve their designs to win.
For the rest of the participating designers, step up your game if you still want to participate. Please do not copy anyone else designs, only considering originals.
Try to use solid colors, if any - no gradients. The logo needs to be useable on not only webpages, but on other promotional materials such as t-shirts.
