99designs CEO, Patrick, and Chefrunde Studytour USA guests

Chefrunde Studytour USA connects editors and executives from Germany’s leading media companies (magazines, newspapers, websites, publishers) with tech companies in Silicon Valley and San Francisco. The topic at hand? All the latest and greatest developments in technology and media.

In anticipation of the visit, we launched a poster design contest to give our German guests a first-hand demonstration of the fantastic work our design community produces. Naturally, we got loads of epically creative designs, which made our decision that much harder.

For your viewing pleasure, we’ve rounded up the winning design and a number of our other favorites. Scroll down and prepare to be wowed! You can check out the whole contest here.
