Check out Elaine6944's Other art or illustration contest…
Community & Non-Profit
Our project entails implementing strategies to improve a small city’s downtown. The goal: enhance its distinctiveness and sense of place, thereby improving its competitiveness as a place to live, work, shop, and visit.
What's your vision?
New designs welcome! Contest extended! The strategies have been organized into the seven categories shown below: 1. Make Downtown Sparkle - Activities the private sector can do to spruce up their buildings, storefronts, parking areas, etc. 2. Enhance the Public Realm - Actions the public sector can take to spruce up sidewalks, roadways, signage, etc. 3. Recruit Businesses Downtown - Tactics to fill up downtown’s empty retail, restaurant and office space 4. Attract Diverse Markets - Methods to bring more shoppers to downtown businesses 5. Catalyze New Developments - Incentives to induce new investment downtown 6. Rehabilitate Historic Structures - Strategies to motivate adaptive reuse and historic renovations 7. Help Businesses Succeed - Tools to help businesses improve service, selection, management, and profitability. Your task entails creating a family of icons/symbols representing each strategy category: think merit badges. Feel free to exercise your creativity within the following parameters: • No text. • Simple, clean, evocative design • Intuitive iconography • Audience: downtown stakeholders (both lay- and professionals) • Legible at scales ranging from approximately 1 x 1 inch to 6 x 6 inches • Legible when photocopied/printed in B+W or gray scale. • Format: .png Attached you'll find a photograph of one of the community's iconic buildings which we hope will influence and inspire your color palette. This photo plays a key role in the design of the document that will introduce the badges you design to the community. We’re looking forward to seeing your ideas! EDITED TO ADD: We've attached another file showing the icons we were using as placeholders. All were fairly spare--simple silhouettes against a single color--and were easy to discern from a distance. Ignore the colors, which are no longer relevant to the document design. Ideas for symbology (just a starting point) include: Make Downtown Sparkle - Buckets, mops, bubbles, brooms, etc. Enhance the Public Realm - benches, trees, streetlights, planters, etc. Recruit Businesses Downtown - Figure on ladder installing sign, open door, welcome mat, etc. Help Businesses Succeed - shopping bag, cash register, etc. Rehabilitate Historic Structures - We like the use of the clock tower from the photo, perhaps with a hand tool superimposed, e.g., a hammer. Catalyze New Development - Crane hook, crane carrying building materials, hard hat, roll of plans, etc. Attract Diverse Markets - Silhouette of a diverse crowd is good, but in the context of a street, plaza, maybe including children, a dog, a disabled person, etc. Other guidance - Think about putting this design on a tee-shirt, about Andy Warhol or Magritte paper cuts Skip the blaze since these will not be used as software/computer icons.
We have extended the initial submission period and will provide ongoing feedback.

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 other art or illustration.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Elaine6944 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.
