See our top 25 eBay re-designs and vote!

Last week we made the not-so-subtle suggestion that eBay’s new logo was not all that it could be, and posed the community with a challenge: to do a better job re-designing their word mark, restoring some of the personality that the actual re-design flattened out.

The response was outstanding. We received an outpouring of design concepts — 1,739 in total — that ranged from realistic suitors to wild, high-concept abstractions. Truly a lot to be proud of.

It’s time to select a winner and we need help narrowing it down. We’re running a public poll so you can help us decide.

Help us decide — vote here!

After some very tough calls, we selected these as our top 8.

Congrats to the 8 finalists

Hats off to the runners-up

There were dozens more designs that really bowled us over. Hats off to the following runners-up for their bold, adventurous and at times downright wacky concepts.

These all caught our attention for being so delightful.

Another design by Ruiz Nala wi Gareng. De Stijl inspiration?

Note: 99designs will ultimately select the winner. Poll results will be taken into consideration in making this decision but will not necessarily be a determining factor.

Cheers to all participants! Looking forward to seeing your votes.

Following the success of our Oakland and Berlin community contests, our European office set out to launch another one; this time in search of an amazing Munich poster. The results were, once again, spectacular. Designers were asked to create a poster design related to Munich’s traditional character, without lapsing into stereotypes. They were welcome to play around with clichés like wheat beer, pretzels and bavarian sausages—so long as it…
