My web designer initially recommended your services. At first I was unsure of the service, I guess because I am use to doing this work the traditional way. My business partner and I simply decided to go with 99designs as we wanted to back a good idea (a vote of support).
Well, what a great decision. The end result was better than we could have ever expected. We are really excited by the end result. At the start the designs were basic and I was a little worried, however I followed the instructions (ie invite designers, guarantee prize, promoted my listing, and gave constant and quick feedback) and we had 21 designers with 192 designs to choose from. The competitive situation between the designers was fantastic. In the end we short listed 3 designers.
For me the best part was the ease of being able to see so much design, give quick and easy feedback via the website, as opposed to working with 1 designer who usually gets pissed that you keep requesting changes generally on one design. We seriously had 192 designs to choose from. Incredible.
At dinner last night I showed someone the 99designs website and how it works, and they were amazed. They have just started a small gym and got a company to do a logo which was so basic and was 5 times the price.
I'll be back!
