The design must include the name of our company. You can use the acronym SXSW or spell it out as South by Southwest.
We want unique, original artwork. We don't want a reinterpretation of our current look and feel, which you can see on our web site. Your design can relate to one of our conferences specifically or it can be a combination of all three, perhaps demonstrating the convergence between the three industries.
The design must include a signature line "Designed by (your name here) at 99designs.com" no larger than 18pt type or longer than 6 inches.
Final artwork must be vector art, preferably an Illustrator file (CS3 or lower). Final art should reproduce correctly at 11" wide. Please take the screen-printing process into account when creating your design. No more than six colors.
