KJM got their new other graphic design by running a design contest:
Bingo Game Board for ArithmaKids
Check out KJM's Other Graphic Design contest…
ArithmaKids is a new startup that designs, markets and sell parental and educational math tools. The founder is a youthful teacher and math specialist that hopes to be able to spread the word about her approach to introducing and teaching young children mathematics. The material is research based and will be very fun, youthful, and educational. Hard to believe right? Check out http://fireawaywithfingerpatterns.blogspot.com/ and www.arithmakids.com to see the ideas behind ArithmaKids.
What's your vision?
Finger Pattern Bingo This project requires design of 4 bingo boards and 11 bingo cards. The boards and the cards need to be two-sided. On side one, they need finger patterns (0-10) and the other side needs to have the English, Spanish, and numeral. We would like to keep the same theme as the finger pattern playing cards (please see attached file). 1. Font should be similar to the attached finger pattern cards. 2. Color should be primary colors, the same as the associated finger pattern card. 3. It needs to be kid friendly, but not cartoonish. It needs to look like the attached finger pattern shown with real hands/fingers. I like what I have in the attached file, but you can improve or improvise. 4. It needs to portray a mathematical feel. Cursive is not the right font for the writing of the number. 5. The font and graphics need to be available without license hassles. 6. It needs to be acceptable to parents and teachers of children. 7. We want it to be simple and crisp, but also bold. 8. We will need formats appropriate for printing high quality products as well as posting electronically. Bingo boards: Please see the attached files. I have made all four bingo boards with the numbers and patterns I would like on each board. 1. Two sided with four boards in the set. 2. Each board will have a different color border. 3. Each board will have a different assortment of finger patterns/number words (use the pattern I included). 4. The bingo board size must be approximately 9 X 9 inches. 5. Nine places on each side of the board. 6. One side will be finger patterns (with the corresponding color). 7. Opposite side will be the written word for the finger pattern (from the corresponding square on the other side) in English, Spanish and the number (no background color) Bingo Cards: Finger Pattern, Number Word and Number Cards 1. (0 to 10) cards that are two sided, one side with the finger pattern and color, other side with the corresponding written numeral word in English/Spanish and the number. They should be exactly the same as the squares on the bingo board 2. Each bingo card will be about 2.5 X 2.5 inches. 3. The cards need to be exact duplicates of the bingo boards. With the same background color and designs as the corresponding bingo board square.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their other graphic design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
KJM collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
