this was my first time using 99designs so I wanted to try a basic project to see how the process worked before refining my ideas and doing a larger, more in depth project. I found my experience with the designer to be fine. I think the process of 99 designs was a bit less valuable than I was expecting. The amount of designers that bid on the project for the basic package was very slim and the process takes rather long. But overall I found it to be helpful and useful for someone like my self that is a beginner and has some extra cash to spend to try different options out.
