jodT got their new social media page by running a design contest:
SF Cooking School Needs Catchy Instagram Posts to Promote our Virtual Open Houses
Check out jodT's Social media page contest…
We are looking for 2 basic designs (one one art board) for Instagram-ready posts. These would be posted to our feed and promoted in order to drive as many RSVPs to our Virtual Open House events as possible, tracking responses and testing different creatives over a few months to figure out what works best (open to landing pages in order to get better metrics, too...current links to directly to https://www.sfcooking.com/event/open-house/ ) - goal is to get as many RSVPs on this page as possible, and figure out what kind of post does that so let's start with 2 basic post designs and if we decide we want to test more we can grow the project at a negotiated rate. Likely photo heavy (we have photos) with strong text graphics (would like to test against some graphic only concepts, too). Our website is here for reference to the general look/feel we have now: www.sfcooking.com. Our colors in the file attached but we're open to thinking outside these three options.
Photo and Tagline will likely be it (other info will be in our Instagram profile - we would also love the option to create some landing pages to track links easily). Taglines will be discussed but needs to be something that is targeted at people who want to change careers and get into the food world, for example; "Your Future Starts Here" . Not everyone wants to be in a restaurant or bakery - some want to start small businesses, some want to be cookbook writers, some want to work in test kitchens, or even be private chefs...so, we don't want it to focus only on people wanting to be Restaurant cooks. Also, we have a HUGE image library we can work from but are open to testing some concepts with images and some with just graphics.
What to avoid
We are a professional program (is 6 months of full time school or one year of part time school to finish the course) and are looking for people who take this seriously (our competitors are the CIA, ICE Culinary, Escoffier Online Culinary and other similar schools offering certificate programs. BUT- we are also more intimate, more intwined with the industry, less focused on the classical French style of cooking, and more modern so we don't want to come across super corporate but do want people to see value in their investment here.

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 social media page.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
jodT 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.
