We’re 99designs by Vistaprint Community Team. We offer a regular series of Community Contests to help you build your portfolio, improve your skills and have some fun while receiving direct feedback from 99designs staff.
What's your vision?
For this year’s holiday season, we want to offer Vistaprint and 99designs customers a collection of community-designed Christmas cards that they can download for free or get printed on Vistaprint! The winning designs (and designers) will be promoted on the 99designs blog and social media, and could be featured on Vistaprint’s website and gallery. We encourage designers to sign their name on the completed artwork, and it will be included as a featured component of the design. We plan to award multiple winners in order to achieve a nice mix of classic and modern designs. For this contest the theme is SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS. We’re looking for unique Christmas card designs that will help small business owners reconnect with their - Loyal customers - Local communities - Employees - Clients - Trade partners over the holiday season. Styles we’d love to see include: - Modern & trend-forward - Typographic - Futuristic - Retro & Vintage - Traditional Themes you might showcase in your design could be:: - A fun “business” spin on classic holiday themes like Christmas trees, gifts, snow, Santa, cozy spaces, etc - Original, stylized versions of holiday motifs like ornaments, botanicals, a crackling fire, etc. - Patterns in holiday-themed color palettes - Scenes of reconnecting over the holidays - Giving thanks for customer loyalty - Thanking the local community for their support - Celebrating business wins - Messaging can go beyond “Merry Christmas” (Happy Holidays, Happy New Year, etc. can also work well!) But please note you’re definitely not limited to the above! What to avoid: This is a custom illustration contest. Please do not include any stock images. Tracing is also prohibited. Whilst you can take inspiration from many places, we need to ensure that these pieces are your original artwork or craftsmanship.

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 illustration or graphics.
