dave.thomas got their new illustration or graphics by running a design contest:
Create designs for Badges signifying achievement
Check out dave.thomas's Illustration or graphics contest…
We provide IT consulting services in 4 domains: Portals and Collaboration (SharePoint) Software Design and Delivery (using Microsoft technologies) Mobility Solutions (e.g. iOS, Android apps) Business Intelligence (using Microsoft technologies)
What's your vision?
We are launching a program called Badges. This program is designed to help our consultants structure their career development. A Badge is a recognition of the acquisition of a particular skill within a certain domain (Capability Badge) or a contribution to our organization (Contribution Badge). We are looking for a simple illustration for each Badge. Currently, there are 38 Badges in total requiring original artwork, but for this contest we would only like you to design 12. The designs should be pretty simple, as they will be printed very small. They can all use the same general layout. Each domain area has a number of Badges (see the attached PowerPoint presentation for more information - slides 5 and 7). Within the 12 domain areas, there are 1 - 8 Badges available and each Badge has 3 levels of achievement (Apprentice, Craftsman, Master). For this contest we would like you to design 1 badge from each of the 12 domain areas (eg. 'SharePoint Administrator' from the Portals and Collaboration domain, 'iOS Developer' from the Mobility domain, etc. on slide 5, and all 4 'Builders' on slide 7). We would like to work with the winning designer of this contest in a 1-to-1 project to get the rest of the badges designed.
Potential format to illustrate each Badge: - Around the outside of the face of the coin could be the domain name (in the case of Contribution Badges, the Badge name) - In the middle of the coin face could be the illustration that denotes the Badge - The coins could be one of three colours denoting Apprentice, Craftsman, Master Attached is a background presentation on what we are trying to achieve with Badges, as well as an inventory of the Badges (slides 5 and 7) and an idea about how you might format the art (slide 8). We’ve added our brand colours which might help you get close to the DevFacto mark. We will provide more specific feedback on your next iteration, but have some general feedback for everyone. • We need these to look modern. Material design from Google and Windows 10 directions would fit us best • We need these to be VERY clear at small sizes • These should work in 1 or 2 colour settings • Think less about chips or coins, and more about badges or stamps. They don’t have to be round • The most successful design will likely be technical, but simple
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Illustration or graphics starts at €319.

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.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
dave.thomas 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.
