Need a Graphic Designer? At 99designs.com a community of graphic designers competes to create the perfect design for your project - logos, web sites, marketing materials, product labels or any other graphical element. As the largest marketplace for crowdsourced graphic design with over 185,000 members, 99designs.com enables businesses to quickly and cost effectively source custom graphic design work without the risk - you see the designs before you buy.
To launch a design project simply describe: who you are, what kind of design you need and how much you are willing to spend. The design community then begins submitting custom designs to your project. The average project is open for 7 days and sees about 100 custom design submissions. At the end you choose the design you like best and leave owning that design and having a relationship with that designer. If you don't like any of the designs we give you 100% of your money back, including our fees, so there is ZERO risk.

Building Client-Designer Relationships at 99designs.com
One of the biggest benefits of using 99designs.com for both clients and designers is that it creates a tremendous opportunity to BUILD RELATIONSHIPS for future work. We recently received the following email from one of the designers in the community, pb_design, who wanted to tell us about just one such relationship.
Hope you're all well.
Just want to share a story with you and it's some positive feedback.
About a year ago I won a design contest on 99designs for a logo and iphone application icon:
Since then I've continued working with the client, Ambient Industries, as their graphic designer, designing the look of the whole application and the website.
During the evolution of the application it has changed name and brand, from 'Groove' to 'Flook':
Flook is a location browser, it's free to download and is currently a staff pick on the Apple store US. Try it out and let us know what you think!
I believe this is one of the true benefits of using 99designs. It enables clients and designers to meet, who otherwise wouldn't know of each other. In a number of projects I, and other designers in the community have gone on to do further work with the clients after the initial contest is complete. Your site supports this, right across the world, which is brilliant.
So, here's a big thank you from me and Ambient Industries! If you hadn't hosted the contest, then the partnership in creating the app could never have happened!

Oh and if you have an iphone - check out Flook... it's pretty cool!
