Second Rotation got their new banner ad by running a design contest:
Second Rotation Banner Ads
Check out Second Rotation's Banner ad contest…
At Second Rotation, we buy old electronics from consumers, and then refurbish and resell or recycle them. So we offer a quick and easy way for people to get cash for their old gadgets that are just collecting dust. Its extremely easy, they find their product, tell us the condition, and our calculator tells them how much we'll pay. They send the item to us, we pay for postage, and then we send them a check! We support these categories: Cell Phones, GPS Devices, Video Game Consoles, Apple Laptops, Digital Cameras, MP3 Players, Camcorders. We don't take computers except for Apple laptops currently.
What's your vision?
Accepted File Formats: Standard Web Formats (.jpg, .gif or .png); Layered Formats (.psd or .tiff) We are looking for 728x90 and 300x250 banner ads for placement on sites such as CNET. We want to emphasize how easy it is, and how people can get cash for their gadgets. Check out our site to get a feel for our brand: http://www.secondrotation.com/ Look at one of the calculation pages to see how easy it is. The calculator could be a feature in the ads, or not. The ads can be dynamic or static. We are open to many different concepts, with or without product shots etc. Something that stands out. One difficulty is how to tell people that we support many types of products. We'd like one version which shows are breadth. But one version should also be focused just on cell phones. Thanks! We look forward to seeing what you come up with.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Banner ad starts at £39.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their banner ad.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Second Rotation collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
