One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - Wenwen
Wenwen was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process of my contest. I've run many contests on 99Designs using various accounts over the years, and I can honestly say that Wenwen was in the 99th percentile in terms of communication, professionalism, and promptness. We went through several DOZEN revisions, even before the Final round, and Wenwen was always willing to try out the little suggestions and ideas that I had along the way. It was an easy choice to choose my final card and logo design, and I look forward to working with Wenwen again in the future on followup projects for my business. All files were delivered promptly in an organized and thorough manner, and they look fantastic. Highly, highly recommended.

How John.hamlen started their button or icon journey

Company name

Simply Business Skills

Overview

Simply Business Skills is an employability skills training company. We teach the transferrable skills that employers identify as essential, but generally lacking in new graduate hires. These generic “employability skills” are required to perform well in any job, but are rarely formally taught at school, college or university.

####################################################
IMPORTANT NOTE - We are not expecting designers to produce 10 icons in their initial concepts. This is too much work! 2 or 3 should be enough for us to decide who to ask to work it up to the full 10
####################################################

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Buyers are individual people looking to upgrade their employability skills before entering (or returning to work), or schools and universities looking to supplement their offering to students by adding these “real world” courses. The main target market is Indians.

Requirements

We are seeking 10 icons, one for each of the following workshops.

1. Business and Customer Awareness Skills
2. Business Numeracy Skills
3. Communication Skills
4. Motivation Skills
5. Networking Skills
6. Problem Solving and Decision Making Skills
7. Project Management Skills
8. Sales and Negotiation Skills
9. Self-Management Skills
10. Teamwork and Leadership Skills

Summaries of each workshop can be read by following links from the following page: http://www.sbskills.com/courses

The icons must:

a) All be recognisably part of the same “family” of icons with the same basic shape
b) Be optimised to look good at 60x60 pixels (but supplied with PSD files so their size can be changed later if required).
c) Look good on a white background (they will end up on this page: http://www.sbskills.com/courses)
d) Be coloured so that they don’t clash with the current colour scheme of http://www.sbskills.com
e) Be simple and clean and graphically represent the theme of each workshop (e.g. Business Numeracy Skills might have a simple representation of numbers, or a calculator, or a balance sheet. Communication Skills will have some visual representation of verbal and written communication. Etc.)
f) Just be vector graphics (no text).
