Crowdsourcing is a topic we often discuss around here. For those new to it, it’s the process (usually internet-based) of soliciting ideas from a large group of people, often by sponsoring a contest. Many of the more memorable t-shirt designs in recent years have come about through crowdsourcing. It’s also the primary source of new designs for many of the more cutting-edge t-shirt companies, some of whom don’t even have in-house designers.
But, for other companies, sometimes the prospect of setting up a contest can be daunting. That’s where designcontest.com comes in. Around since 2003, they are a third-party resource that companies can go to in order to set up a contest, the result of which will generate a new logo or design.
And now, to keep up with the times, designcontest.com has just rolled out an all new, redesigned website. The aim is to make it even easier for individuals and business to set up contests, and easier for independent designers to interact with the site and the contests. In addition to providing a more user-friendly experience for all who visit and use the site, there have been major hardware upgrades behind the scenes in order to increase speed and efficiency.
So, if you’re an independent designer, or if you need a t-shirt, website, logo, business card, or other design, you might just want to head over to designcontest.com and check it out.
