How brand identity design contest work?

You can launch a brand identity contest to design any of the followings:

You can select 1 or more items to be designed and the minimum contest prize for brand identity design is just $50 per item selected.

If you have multiple design items for your contest, you can only select 1 winner and he/she will deliver all of the designs. It is common for designers to submit only part of the designs during qualifying stage. But once select as the winner, the designer will finish rest of the design to your satisfaction.

For example, if you like business card from one designer and T-shirt design from another, our suggestion will be to select the designer who you think deserve the most and work with him/her to finish the remaining design items.
