99designs Holds Design Contest for NBCUniversal Logo Redesign

San Francisco
30 Jan 2011

BUSINESS WIRE -- 99designs is sponsoring a design contest to redesign the new NBCUniversal logo that was announced following NBCUniversal’s sale to Comcast. The new logo received mixed reviews for dropping the iconic and colorful NBC peacock in exchange for a logo that is one-color and all text. The design contest is open for anyone to submit alternative design ideas until Sunday, February 6th at https://99designs.com/logo-design/contests/logo-design-better-nbc-universal-community-contest-64113.

The NBCUniversal logo redesign contest is the latest in a string of successful community design contests sponsored by 99designs that have tackled everything from the GAP logo fiasco, the Rio Olympics to a new hairstyle for Julian Assange. “The contests are a lot of fun and the community loves to participate – the GAP contest saw nearly 5,000 submissions from over 1,000 designers around the world,” said Jason Aiken Community Director for 99designs.

Entries will be judged for their creativity and overall design integrity by the 99designs staff. The submissions can be viewed at https://99designs.com/logo-design/contests/logo-design-better-nbc-universal-community-contest-64113.
