KyleF got their new banner ad by running a design contest:
New illustration wanted for high tech start-up (potential for website front page!)
Check out KyleF's Banner ad contest…
Big Switch Networks transforms today’s networks into open software-defined networks that adapt to your business needs. Virtualization abstracted the physical hardware from the applications in the compute and storage space. As a result these spaces experienced faster hardware and software innovation cycles, reduced management complexity and more agile service delivery. We believe software-defined networks will deliver similar transformational benefits to the networking infrastructure. Abstracting the physical infrastructure into a set of logical networks opens the doors to unprecedented flexibility. For example, IT leaders can now change any logical network to suit business needs in a simple, dynamic and controlled way regardless of their physical network topology. The opposite stands too. Capacity can be added to the physical network without impacting the logical network configurations. A shared physical network could be virtualized and segmented into sub-networks with different business purposes without requiring any change on the underlying physical topology. Increased velocity in network services delivery, simplified network configuration and management, reduced operational complexity, dynamic alignment between network and business needs are a few of the many benefits from software-defined networking. At Big Switch Networks, we believe that openness gives customers choice to build best of breed networks. Our solution is based on an open standard OpenFlow that abstracts the network control plane of network from the data plane. To give back to open source communities, a subset of our solution is also available as an open source version at OpenFlowHub and at OpenStack. We support both physical and virtual networks and interoperate with a large eco-system of networking vendors allowing customers to virtualize their existing and future infrastructure as we demonstrated at Interop 2011 in Las Vegas. Based in Silicon Valley, the Big Switch Networks team is composed of industry experts in virtualization and networking, serial entrepreneurs and researchers from Stanford University who were early pioneers of Software-Defined Networking and OpenFlow.
What's your vision?
We would like an illustration that we could use on the front page o four website that would illustrate our mission statement "Bringing cloud innovation to your network" (text could be included or not). This would have to convey high tech industry change and cloud / network reference. A good website we like to use as reference is Juniper Networks website www.junipernetworks.com (our website will be redesigned and this will be part of it www.bigswitch.com). Our logo colors and any white, blue or grey color will be an option. The website will have a white background. This will be the face of our company and we need something very inspiring and professional. We want to demonstrate openness (giving back to open source communities and working with an eco-system of partners) as well as high technology (industry expert) that will transform the network to take the cloud to the next level. Designer with experience in networking illustrations or technology would have an advantage but we are open to very abstract illustration too. We want a modern consumer like (Apple, Skype, etc.) type of feel (round and fun) more Web2.0 and cloud than networking but still associated to networking. Our team (researcher, engineers, high achievers) should also relate to it and take proud in it.
target audience: high tech, early adopter, heavy users of high tech in their personal life (consumer).

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 banner ad.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
KyleF 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.
