Check out mcoen's Postcard, flyer or print contest…
We transform the lives of youth and poor communities using the developmental power of performance, in partnership with caring adults. The Development School for Youth is a leadership-training program for young people between the ages of 16 and 21 that focuses on development. Every year, nearly 400 students, recruited from high schools across Chicago are accepted into the Development School's program on the basis of their desire to be leaders. The program partners with corporate professionals and nearly 50 major corporations in Chicago to provide training experiences for the students and summer internships for the DSY graduates
What's your vision?
I need a postcard to hand out to young people (age 16-21), who we meet on the bus, train, and on the street. The only requirement to be part of the DSY program is that young people are 16-21; we do not care about GPA, if someone has graduated, or how well someone is doing. Our DSY program is all about professionalism and providing a quality developmental afterschool experience for our young people. We have a full-page flyer we use at school outreach and this postcard will be something we have on hand to give to youth we meet outside of the office and planned events. This postcard will not be used for mailings, so there is no need to leave space for address or stamp. Even though we are advertising to youth, I would like the postcard to look sophisticated and professional, with a pretty minimalistic design, so the information stands out. If you look at the samples of some of our event materials (attached), you will get a feel for the color schemes and branding that we use. The DSY logo (attached, in purple) needs to be included, but I do not want the main color scheme to be purple. A light-colored background would be preferable, with darker text. I've included a number of photos of our young people. Please choose 1-2 for the front of the postcard and 1-2 for the back of the postcard. If you feel more or less photos would work better for your design, I am open to that. Please try to incorporate the photo 'Cheering w plaques'.

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 postcard, flyer or print.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
mcoen collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
