The folks at OnePlus were kind enough to give me three invites for the 64GB version of the OnePlus One. If you read my review, you know this is an excellent phone and peerless in terms of value for money. Please comment below on this post with your email address and I will randomly select three people on Monday morning to give it out to.
We’re pleased to announce our new logo, thank you for voting!
Getting feedback from you was really interesting, whether through the 99designs poll or through conversation. The results were very, very close and shows how diverse opinion can be. A logo, it turns out, is a very subjective thing. I’ll delve into feedback for each logo in today’s post.
While there were other logos more people liked, the winning logo was the one that most loved. In our industry, it’s better to be loved by few than liked by many. More importantly, it was the logo I had a gut feel for and your overall feedback reinforced that. Though I must admit, there were doubts.
Let’s go through each of the four finalists.
We’re going to break tradition by posting twice today. There’s a big one about Google I/O that’s coming in a couple of hours, but in the meantime please rate the four finalist logos from our 99designs contest. Do it at the following link:
Your opinion matters!
The Cornerplay started as a hobby, a fun creative outlet. You’d think a tech start-up is enough of that, but in reality I do more editing than building. It’s amazing to take a step back and see how much this blog has grown over the last 1.5 months.
Now that I know this thing will run for a while, it might be time for us to get a real logo. And so we turned to 99designs, a leader of crowd-sourced design. In case you’re not familiar with the service, you submit a project (e.g. need a new logo) and the website’s community of designers vie with each other to provide the winning creative.
Running a contest on 99designs is fascinating. It truly is a game; experienced contestants understand the game’s rules and use those rules to maximize their chances of winning. Their incentives may not always align with yours. So if you’re thinking about holding a contest there, here are a few things you should do.
