daniel.alm got their new banner ad by running a design contest:
Minimalist banner ads for Mac productivity app
Check out daniel.alm's Banner ad contest…
Automatic time tracking for macOS. Mostly used by freelancers who need to bill their time and power users looking to improve their productivity.
What's your vision?
Hi, We are looking for banner ads to promote our Mac app Timing (https://timingapp.com/). The app automatically tracks which apps, documents and websites you use, so you can later see where your time went and assign those times to projects. This is crucial for freelancers who need to bill their time, but also helps improve the productivity of any Mac user. These ads are going to be shown on Macs with Retina displays, and thus need to be created at a 2x scale in the following formats: 1456x180 (728x90 @2x) 640x100 (320x50 @2x, for mobile) 600x500 (300x250 @2x) 99designs only lets us require three sizes, but designs in the following sizes would also be appreciated: 640x200 (320x100 @2x, for mobile) 936x120 (468x60 @2x) 672x560 (336x280 @2x) 240x1200 (120x600 @2x) Only the three sizes mentioned first are required, however. We'd like a minimalist, light color theme, with not too much visual clutter. Here are examples of ads with a style similar to what we are looking for: https://99designs.com/banner-ad-design/contests/minimalistic-flat-ad-banners-mac-app-640833 https://mocktool.moat.com/advertiser/workday https://mocktool.moat.com/advertiser/reuters https://mocktool.moat.com/advertiser/klaviyo https://mocktool.moat.com/advertiser/peerspace https://mocktool.moat.com/advertiser/megapath In terms of content, we need two variants of each format, one geared towards a general audience and another specifically towards freelancers. For the general audience version, please include the phrases "Get More Productive" as a headline and "Track and eliminate distractions on your Mac" as extra text. For the Freelancer version, use the phrases "Bill More Hours" as a headline and "Automatically track Mac usage and recover unbilled hours" as extra text. In addition, each banner must contain the following: - a button with the text "Download Now" or "Download Timing" - the phrase "Timing" in bold (optionally with the attached app icon next to it), unless you have opted for the "Download Timing" phrase above Open Sans would be a good starting choice for a font, but up to you. Lastly, you may (but don't need to) also add the attached bar chart or a variant of it. Attached are: - App icon - Bar chart - Five screenshots of the app — one slightly outdated (but more elaborate) one, and four new ones: two different app views, both with and without vibrancy And here are additional resources about our app: Main homepage: https://timingapp.com/ Press kit (with more screenshots and other imagery): https://timingapp.com/presskit/ Explainer video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAM5eT00lnE Tutorial video: https://timingapp.com/tutorial Thanks!

And then… they selected a winner!
In our contest, T. submitted a design that was way better than every competitor. He took a creative approach to the problem instead of doing boring "business as usual" and delivered a result that far exceeded my expectations. He was also extremely responsive to communication, explaining his decisions and providing updated briefs within just a few hours.
For future projects I will definitely use his services again!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
