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.

The Mr. Smoking mascot gets a modern update

Mascots are understood internationally and help companies tell a stronger story. They immediately personalize the brand, giving it a face and this is exactly what a brand needs: to convey emotions, build recognition and resonate with the consumer. Smoking®, a leading brand of cigarette paper, has always used design to the best of their advantage. Since their inception in 1879, the Spanish company has exported papers to more…
