It was really a great experience working with all of the designers at 99Designs, but Clicky in particular. Clicky is very talented. Took our direction to heart, right out of the gate. Was super easy to work with and in the end, gave us a great icon for our app. We couldn't have been happier. We hope to have another occasion to work with Clicky and 99Designs in the future.
How DesignHT started their social media page journey
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the social media page?
It would be nice if
-The feel was African, fun (even though topics will be considered hard news), conversational, and professional ; and
- has some kind of human element
Example of podcast covers we like and what we like about it:
Grammar Girl: simple look, color coordination, and content
The Stoop: Color coordination, Drawing
Politico’s pulse check: color and text coordination. Catchy text
Coding Blocks: creativity of drawing
Tumble science podcast for kids: simple text and concept
This american life: originality and memorability
Ask me another: originality and memorability
Social media type
