Cory Lockhart got their new custom wordpress themes by running a design contest:
Marriage of modern & old school - online bookkeeping business
Check out Cory Lockhart's Custom Wordpress Themes contest…
We are a father (old school) and son (new school) Canadian accounting firm starting a separate bookkeeping business. Both father and son are professional accountants. We have a staff of under 6. We want to be seen as professional yet modern. We are trying to combine traditional accounting skills with modern internet technology.
The target audience is fairly broad...small business owners across Canada that require bookkeeping/payroll/GST services. We want to target those business owners that are tech savay enough to have their payroll and bookkeeping done virtually.

Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets.
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 custom wordpress themes.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Cory Lockhart 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.
