jayyeh got their new poster by running a design contest:
Podcast Cover Art using illustrations to depict entrepreneurs raising money
Check out jayyeh's Poster contest…
Funded is a podcast that shares the sometimes crazy stories behind what startup founders had to do to raise millions of dollars for their companies. The stories provide insights into what aspiring entrepreneurs need to do and pitfalls they should avoid in order to successfully raise money.
What's your vision?
I would like podcast cover art that includes illustrations that capture the essence of startup founders raising money. The essence of that is that there is a lot of struggle and difficulty before reaching their goal which catapult's them to the next stage of their business. The title "Funded" shouldn't take up more than 30% of the space and likely even less. The image size should be 3000px x 3000px but be understandable at 50 x 50 (about the size it might be viewed at on mobile devices). Please check these best practices for some guidance (https://castos.com/podcast-cover-art/) Some ideas for how to illustrate the concept of a startup founder getting "funded". - An entrepreneur holding on a rocketship that represent money and is taking off (example 1- https://firstname.lastname@example.org) (example 2- https://www.startupguys.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/startup-funding-moonshot-thinking.jpg) - an entrepreneur being handed money (https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/OfNj43rZBfjueGNfm3WYVZTgwODDRaMcqQWkUfhctO35M36zc5fmBLvXNvL_kvsKTObeOxRpbvzs2arj3ivH7yB_gDFqcSYZOsR39CSxIgn1yeRo9BwvKfW84MJtleDoSdqMqUF43FsvHd0pz2C-76g) - an entrepeneur on a rollercoaster that ends in money - following a map to money - handshake and money - trapping money like it's a wild animal I'd like to see some representation of struggle and then success if there's enough space. Ideas for the struggle part: - A broke person at a computer coding - A broke person confused - a broke person building something (can be physical...sewing something or laying bricks) Notes on look and feel: - When representing an "entrepreneur" please make it more younger startup feeling and less suit and tie. Also if you represent a person, please be able to swap male and female easily as well as ethnicity - the startups in this podcast will mostly be tech companies
Please remember i don't necessarily want the protagonist to be a standard white male. it would be good to have variety of faces/genders/etc as options In case this helps, here is a message I sent the designers that submitting things in the fist few hours before i updated the brief: ------- Hi - first, thank you for all of your submissions. I've been so impressed! In my initial brief I missed a few things. Would love to fill everyone in to try to get closer to the vision. 1) I didn't mention that part of the process of getting "Funded" is a lot of struggle and hardship. Based on my brief, the imagery that came back was only the end result of getting money. If there is room in the image and a way to lightly incorporate a "before" state where the person is broke and working (coding, building, etc.) that would be amazing. Some of the current designs could be updated to show a smaller version of the same character in the background working to show what had to be done before getting a rocket ship of money 2) I know a lot of these designs are using stock imagery which is fine. Can you do a little work to edit the characters and replace their heads / skin tones to make them women or less like standard white guys? Even glasses on people would make a difference. 3) Can you try throwing in some icon/imagery that represents startups like maybe computers, programming code, lightbulbs, mobile phones? right now there are just images of coins flying around and i'd like it to be a bit more startupy

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 poster.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
jayyeh 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!
Impressed at the responsiveness and creativity of the designer. Used some stock imagery as inspiration but did a lot of from scratch work and mix and matching which many designers on the platform do not do.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
