Check out your new 99designs Community T-shirts!

Stephanie Thai

That’s right, 99designs picked TWO winners from our Community T-shirt contest! We launched the contest in search of a new design that would represent you, our designer community. We were undoubtedly delighted by the range of ideas we received — choosing just one winner was a decision we simply could not make!

So without further ado, here are your new Community T-shirts (followed by all the awesome runners-up):

At first sight, you may not think this T-shirt would unite a community, but we enjoyed Dmitry’s design for being bold and lightheartedly humorous. He explained that often we see 99designs with two distinct sides: winners and non-winners. However, regardless of who you are, the feeling you get when you’re eliminated (as demonstrated by this poor little doll) is something all 99designers have in common. Thanks for being a great sport, Dmitry!


Design by figue

We couldn’t help but fall in love with this design since it represents the diversity of our global community in a fun, whimsical way. While the individual characters may be complex, figue wanted to keep the concept simple by representing “the designer’s career to become recognized or awarded.” You may also notice our platypus friend making another cameo, leading the parade of creatives.


Choosing just two winners was a challenge. These other wonderful designs do a great job at symbolizing our designer community.

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…
