Presenting the winner and runners-up from our Miami Dolphins logo contest

Zach Kulas

As soon as we heard the Miami Dolphins were updating their logo, we knew we had to run a fun community contest and give designers a chance to push their creative boundaries. We wanted to see everything from vintage and modern logos, to designs that were completely different than the current branding.

The direction of these re-designs were ultimately up to the creators, and boy did our designer community deliver!

We’d like to give a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who participated — you made choosing a winner extremely difficult. But at last, a top design has been chosen.

Congratulations to struggle4ward for creating the winning design!

9 modern Munich-inspired posters from the 99designs community

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…
