Just a quick post about a page that I came across today. It’s at 99designs.com and is a site for designers to compete in competitions. Companies who need a design will put up some money for the competition and designers upload their entries. Best one gets the cash. Simple.
The good thing for the rest of us though, is that we are able to see all these ideas and how they evolve. To me, as a non-designer, it’s quite an inspiration. If I’m looking for a web page design, I can browse around until I see one that I fancy. I can see many variations along the same theme, in one place. I’ve suggested the site to some of my customers and they’ve been impressed with the response. Have a look.
