More than 5,000 entrants have submitted designs to the latest DesignCrowd contest.
Using the innovative Sydney-based DesignCrowd crowdsourcing service, TimesSquare.com, has offered up a $10,000 prize for anyone who can provide a new logo for the New York-based website. TimesSquare.com is a site that covers nightlife, dining, and entertainment going on in and around Manhattan, and judging by the old logo still on display at the web site, it looks like company really needs a new one.
Speaking on the landmark contest, DesignCrowd CEO Alec Lynch said, “We believe TimesSquare.com’s $10,000 prize was the largest ever for an online logo contest and one of the first design crowdsourcing projects to receive over 5,000 entries. It’s a great case study in design crowdsourcing and highlights the creativity and power of the crowd.”
