This is my first time using 99designs and would I use it again? ABSOLUTELY!! I had 34 x designs from about maybe 15 different designers. It was incredible to see the different designs put forward from designers all over the globe. My only criticism is the designers need to also understand that they maybe on the other side of the world and as such there is always going to be a time delay in getting answers to their questions due to the different time zones we all work in. Some of them are very eager to win the job, so they get a bit demanding with their repeated emails and contact requests. Paul.Phoenix who won this project delivered almost everything i wanted to see in his first concept. Great job and congratulations Paul.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our target audience is the type of person likely to ship their car in a move rather than drive it. Generally, these people will likely be web savvy and make a fair income.
We are looking for something fun, modern, and simple. We want it to have the feel of the Mac icon: Simple, recognizable, and clean. Also, for the imagery, we want some sort of car emerging from a box, preferably a newer car (though something less generic than a VW Bug), so it literally looks like the car is being shipped in a box. We see this box as sitting on its side facing about 3/4 forward with the appearance that the car is driving or coming out of the box.
One logo we really like is the logo for https://www.dropbox.com/. It's very clean and simple, and we love the font and the shading on the box. We also like how the image is monochromatic, but a little more color would work as well. We do like the text in black.
The files we will require are:
Print file format - .ai (CMYK)
Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)
