Posters without limits: killer designs from 99designs’ illustration contest

Filip Resse

For our latest community contest, we challenged the 99designs community to come up with visually stunning and creative illustration designs. We left the brief open ended with the hope that designers would really think out of the box and come up with the some great ideas to represent our brand.

Needless to say, we were blown away by the quantity of quality designs. We ended up choosing 5 different winning designs and expect to award several more in the future. The work will be featured on poster, T-shirts and other marketing collateral in the office and all over the world at trade shows and conventions to represent the level of talent in this amazing community.

So strap in, hold onto your hats and get ready to go for an exciting ride on the creative wave of the 99designs community.
