CMAPLLC got their new banner ad by running a design contest:
Capital Markets Access Partners needs a 300x250 ad
Check out CMAPLLC's Banner ad contest…
Capital Markets Access Partners provides technology solutions and consulting services to businesses in the margin trading products industry (futures, options, CFDs, foreign exchange).
What's your vision?
We need a 300x250 advertisement designed for our company that will be displayed on a news aggregation website in our industry. We will need a single image that has space for us to later edit different "calls to action." The advertisement must include our logo w/tagline. It should be short, to the point, and have a call to action sample area. It also must have the text "Solutions For" with "Brokers", "Liquidity Providers", "Money Managers" displayed in bullets or side-by-side. An "about us" file is attached for your reference. The colors are up to you. The layout is up to you. The final product should be in a PSD format where we can later change the "call to action" as a different layer of the file. We plan on running dozens of iterations; you are designing the shell of the ad. Please, of course, have a sample such as "More volume, less risk, click to learn more". <-- that is the text that will be changing from ad-to-ad. UPDATE 2011.09.18 Thank you for all the submissions so far. We would like to try something with a black/darker background. We do not want a person in the ad; if there is going to be an image, it should be trading or currency related. We prefer free stock photography. We would also like to see submissions with the logo in the middle and text on the top and bottom. Thanks for all the submissions so far; this is great.
The target audience is highly educated, C-level decision makers at international banks and brokerages. The website where the advertisement will receive roughly 600 unique visitors per week, so the volume is not very high. The number of clicks also will not be very high, so it is important to be effective for a small audience.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Banner ad starts at $49.

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 banner ad.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
CMAPLLC 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 2 winners!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
