EPTAC got their new banner ad by running a design contest:
Design Ads with an Artistic Flare to Catch the Eye of Electronics Designers
Check out EPTAC's Banner ad contest…
EPTAC Corporation (www.eptac.com) is the leading provide of solder training and IPC Certification in the world. We work directly with folks in the electronics manufacturing industry to provide training programs, training materials, industry standards and products related to this market. We are a training and consulting company for the electronics industry. Basically we provide solder training and IPC (our licensing body) certification to folks that assembly electronic components on to printed circuit boards. Our web site is www.eptac.com. We training predominately through the United States and Canada. You can download our app from http://www.eptacapp.com
What's your vision?
We would like to create banner ads to run that have a theme of "Train with the Masters" subtitle "Electronics Industry Training & Certifications" and possibly a "Learn More.." button. If there is room, a subtitle "On-line and In-Person". Creative design ideas welcome and if it helps we live in the electronics marketplace, so graphics of printed circuit boards, PCBs, electronics can come into play. We run banner ads in various trade emailed newsletters and on web sites that are specific to the electronics industry. We market in the following publications: http://www.circuitnet.com http://www.smtonline.com http://www.circuitsassembly.com http://www.canadianelectronics.ca http://www.pcbdesign007.com/pages/pcbdesign007.cgi http://pcdandf.com/cms/ We are looking for something with "color" that plays off of an artist's color palette where paints are mixed. We don't want a basic palette, but one that shows mixed paints and maybe the use of a paintbrush in the banner, painting and gradually revealing the logo for EPTAC. Note: this probably has illustrated designs to make these transitions happen. Because of the different sizes, you need to watch what is designed so that it can be shaped to fit. We have gone to simpler designs for the smaller ads, i.e. different from the larger ones, just so that we could create something cool in the larger ones. The trick is to create something interesting for what can be a boring industry at times.
We will need fifteen (15) sizes, but the contest requires that we only ask for three (3) in .jpg and .png formats: 165x165 468x60 728x90 FYI, The other twelve (12) sizes are: 160x300 160x600 200x200 240x185 300x50 300x250 300x600 320x100 336x280 338x168 600x200 970x90
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.
EPTAC 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.
