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.
