Illya got their new banner ad by running a design contest:
New banner ad set for Genealogy Today
Check out Illya's Banner ad contest…
We provide subscription access to information (names/places/dates) transcribed from original documents in our collection. We are similar to the larger players in the industry (e.g. Ancestry.com, Archives.com) except that our documents are typically smaller in size, and focus on life activities in addition to the traditional birth/marriage/death (i.e. vital records). The majority of our information is from the United States. My web site is genealogytoday.com
What's your vision?
I would like a themed set of banners (120x240, 728x90, 468x60, 300x250 and 160x600) that my affiliates could use to promote my site. I'd like the banners to convey that Genealogy Today has unique information that a researcher might not find elsewhere. It's often by looking off the beaten path that you might discover an elusive ancestor. I'm not expecting any particular color theme, although most genealogy sites use earth-tones in their advertisements. I would like to see the creative branded with my logo (attached file "Patch") in some way, although it may be subtle (e.g. ghosted in background)
Demographics for genealogy are typically women aged 40+. Please glance at the following sites and ensure any design does NOT closely resemble theirs: http://www.ancestry.com/, http://www.archives.com/, http://www.genealogybank.com/, http://www.familylink.com/ While I've posted logo some vintage photographs (that I own), there is no requirement that these be used. "Discover" is one of the most compelling words that is frequently used in genealogy advertisements. Please do NOT use the word Ancestry

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their banner ad.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Illya collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected 2 winners!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
