18 gorgeous posters inspired by the city of Oakland

99designs Team

After a recent move across the Bay Bridge from San Francisco to Oakland, our US office was looking for a fun way to fill their new blank walls. We put out a call to our 99designs community for a fun and inspired Oakland poster and were seriously wowed by all of your talent!

It was a very tough decision (as you can see by all these outstanding entries), but in the end we awarded seven posters that knocked our socks off. Congratulations to the winners!

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.
