99designs birthday party (slideshow and photos)

Kaitlyn Ellison

Recently, we threw a party to celebrate our 5th year anniversary! Our teams gathered both in Melbourne and in San Francisco to eat a little, drink a little, and make a little bit of a big deal over the accomplishments of our community over the last 5 years.

The Presentation

In preparation of our party, we put a call out for enteries so we could create a slideshow to brag about the awesome work you guys do on our site. We had a ton of responses, and it was massively difficult to narrow it down to just 99 designers. Thank you to everyone who submitted your work to us.

You called to see the final presentation, so we’re answering! Here it is:

Congrats to all designers whose work was featured

 

The Party

While this slideshow played on repeat throughout the night, the 99staff got down chatting, eating and generally taking a load off. Check it out!

Australia partied it up too

The Melbourne party was particularly special, as they held it at a restaurant which had its logo created on 99designs! Take a look at the contest for Rockwell & Sons and enjoy some images of the Aussie team.
