Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Chirply is a community of artists and design lovers that want to make better stuff through better design! The community collectively decides what the best submitted designs are, and then those designs are made into things we use everyday like greeting cards, notebooks, and art prints & posters!
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
This contest is to design a square shaped graphic that will become a clickable advertisement on several different illustration and paper design related sites. For example: http://ten-paces.blogspot.com/ or http://discoverpaper.com/ and other similar blogs and communities. The main size needed will be 150x150p but may be resized to 125x125p or 190x190p. Please keep this in mind.
The single most important thing is to make the readers/users of these sites want to click through and visit our site.
The winning design will be simple, not crowded or busy, and will likely feature both our brand name logo (attached) and an image of one of the winning designs that has been printed. If you go to http://www.chirply.com/products you'll be able to see which designs have been printed. Then if you go to http://www.chirply.com/designs and sort by "oldest" you can find a 600x600 image of that design.
Of course, the reason for this contest is because we want the benefit of the talented designers here on 99designs, so please be as creative as you can given the size restrictions and the suggestions above. Ultimately, a more provocative design will attract more clicks, so please be as creative as possible.
