SXSW Video: 99designs – Design Contests
99designs is a service that was born in the Sitepoint forums which allows designers to "bid" on contests. The company describes the service as, "99designs connects clients needing design work such as logo designs, business cards or web sites to a thriving community of 30,023 talented designers."
99designs launched last year at the DEMO conference. So far 99designs has helped run 19,000 contests, awarded $4 million dollars and more than 50% of the contests lead to follow-on work. The company was founded and invested by Sitepoint executives.
