I can't speak highly enough of the 99designs. Nowhere could I get access to this many designers and get to explore a huge amount of concepts, themes from passionate, enthusiastic designers. My contest was different, an embroidered patch for our karate club. I used all the time available and kept working and communicating with all designers to explore new concepts or develop their existing designs. My effort was rewarded knowing that in the end I had six great designs, any one of which I would have been proud to wear on my karate uniform. I had to pick one. I had to use family, friends, 99designs polls and various other sources to narrow down my choices. I finally settled on one design out of almost 200 submitted. Where else could I do that. Thanks 99designs.
