The146 got their new other graphic design by running a design contest:
Help UFOstart with a new design
Check out The146's Other Graphic Design contest…
Games & Recreational
A flash-based massive multiplayer online game. All based around people pitching their idea for a startup business in real-time to a crowd of people who can vote, ask questions, give comments, commit to be a supporter, investor or co-worker.
What's your vision?
What should it look like? Set in a futuristic like world. Vector retro styled. Looking for stylish retro designs, meaning sharp contrasting angles. Make sure the design is VERY clean. Lay low on the gradients (IF needed only use one or two. Gradients, when printed, don't always look fantastic ). You've been provided with some inspiration. We're looking for a "ufo" kind of world. Futuristic, sectioned off in different biomes by half-globes appearing like glass. ======================================== Colors? Keep a very limited and smart design palette. You have been provided with our design palette. You have also been provided with examples of past winners of our contest on 99Designs. Keep the style reminiscent of these, and try to not stray too far from the color palette. Grays are accepted :) ======================================== Size? We're going to be set up at a conference soon, and this will be the back-drop of our booth. Meaning it'll be large (think 3 meters wide by 2 meters high)! DON'T make your file this large. Your art should be done in illustrator, so it should be a vector format, so a smaller file, say 12in wide by 8in high should work, and should be scaled to a large form very easily with no complications. ======================================== File format? Illustrator. .ai. If you don't know your way around illustrator well, this contest may not be for you. ======================================== Bonus points if: You can fit the UFO from our logo into your environment. :)
I'll respond as quickly as possible with reviews and such, as the deadline is very tight. Good luck! If you have questions post them as quick as possible. If repeat questions occur, check back and I'll update the description of the contest. ** Do not put text on this, we can do it. ** Do not put too many gradients!!

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 other graphic design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
The146 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
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
