Opbhq got their new flash banner by running a design contest:
Garth Road Landing Flash
Check out Opbhq's Flash banner contest…
Professional Contracting targeting soccer moms and professionals that need home improvements and business improvements
What's your vision?
We want a flash player to play in the center of our banner (that is also a flash). Looking for size: 500 x 360 px (approx.) Animation/ cartoon style, about 9-12 seconds per frame. 1-2 minutes long. A play button to match. Animation Story-Line: One day a women is thinking to herself in her living room "We should really upgrade our spaces" , "We need to find a licensed contractor". She then looks out her window and sees a box truck go by with (our logo). "Let's call Garth Road Building & Remodeling!" Next Slide has three (circles) that fade in one at a time with labels below: "Licensed" with ribbon type icon in circle, "Quality" with a thumbs up in circle, "on time" with clock in circle. Next screen has something flashy like animated rays from center going out, with our phone number " call 434.465.9496" in center. Another slide might have a cool animation with "2 year workmanship warranty" with "lifetime structural warranty" below. Next screen shows truck pulling in (with sign). Professional pops out. Shakes her hand or hugs her dog (or gives a bone). Women gets happy, etc. Next slide shows certification, usgbc logo w/"green builders" under, EPA logo with Lead safe firm under, Eco Logo w/ "sustainable" under. Last frame shows "Call Garth Road Building & Remodeling Today 434 465 9496 in big font. Color scheme is blue based, with other nice colors. Logos and more ideas are easily uploaded if needed. I am fast and on the stick for feedback and collaboration. Can incorporate certification logos somewhere cool. Company png is attached. This bascially what we're doing, see example #2. http://99designs.com/designer-blog/2014/01/22/top-10-web-design- trends-for-2014/ If you start a free account with animaker (link below) the cartoons/animations are actually pretty cool - we had started one, but we suck at it. http://www.animaker.com/ But we already have the background banner, just need a cool toon for the center!
We are not afraid to increase prize payout - we did on our last contest about mid-way through as things were looking great, and folks were working hard! We love 99designs, it is probably the only crowd-sourced site that really works!

And then… they selected a winner!
I did not expect the final product to contain sounds and music - this was a very pleasant surprise! Maryia is very skilled and her work is professional.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
