fsantosk got their new signage by running a design contest:
Billboards for edgy church in Silicon Valley
Check out fsantosk's Signage contest…
We are a fast growing multi-site church in Silicon Valley, Ca. We have a non-traditional approach to church experiences, with upbeat bands, casual services, and welcoming environments. Our target is young professionals and young families, mostly entrepreneurial, working in technology. They are not very religious, and even often skeptical of church and Christians. We target a very culturally diverse audience, with lots of Indians, Chinese, etc. Our more casual approach with humor and use of technology is what helps us most connect with Silicon Valley residents.
What's your vision?
We need an attention grabbing design for billboards that will be displayed in January around Silicon Valley. We are changing the name of our church from South Bay Church to Echo.Church and the billboards are part of our rebrand marketing strategy. We don't have much time, since the designs are due first week of January. We had some other designs that we were not feeling good about, so we're looking for other options. Since we are building a new brand, we'd like our logo displayed large. We'd like the design to be simple, but mind-provocative, so that people take a second look. Our new name is connected to the idea that "what happens in the Bay Area echoes around the world" and we want to be a church that makes a difference locally, nationally, and around the world. ** If anyone wants to try to design using the pictures I uploaded, there are some quotes that go with the pics (we prefer the background to by not very busy, so might be good to white it out): 1. Hanook, 27, Engineer - I wanted a community where diversity was not just "talk" 2. Darren, 34, Tech Entrepreneur - "I needed my hustle to count for more than just profit" 3. Aline, 25, Au Pair - "My family away from family" 4. Fred and Rebecca: "Our marriage was a wreck, today we have hope" 5. Widodo, 41, Engineer - "I'm a better dad now" 6. Luke, Venture Capitalist - "The most helpful time of my week" 7. Justin, 35, Founder of TrashPunx.com - "Now using my creativity to make a difference"

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 signage.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
fsantosk 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!
The design submissions were excellent quality--clearly a notch above other candidates. The designer took into account very well what we had outlined in our brief. In addition, the designer was collaborative, having expeditiously made a number adjustments to the design as we went along based on my requests. We ended up with a logo that is exactly what our business needed.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
