It has been a great experience using 99design.com. Special thanks to my designer ni.ya for such a lovely logo design!
Ni. ya is one designer that helps translates the feedback given to her design and at the same time injects new ideas to the design to make it better. She's also very responsive and i'm very impressed with the quality, the varying designs that is offered.

We are a non-profit Zoo, and our largest fundraiser or the year, the Beastly Feast targets corporations and donors to raise a significant amount of money for our Zoo.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
The Beastly Feast fundraiser which has been held for over 25 years will be held in Spring 2014. It is a black tie event held at the zoo. But although it is black-tie and sophisticated, there is a sense of whimsy and fun as our guests explore the zoo animals and grounds. The theme for 2014 is Jungle Jubilee so we are looking for key art to be designed incorporating the JJ name, animal graphics and event details. (For the event details just put placeholders.) This key art will be used in invitations, programs, t-shirts and more. At this point we are only looking for key art options. We are a zoo, and we'd like to see a menagerie of animal use within the design. Specifically the following endangered animals should be used: rhino, giraffe, tiger and panda. These can be illustrated, graphic, detailed, not detailed, interpretations, etc. A non-stuffy black-tie animal-themed fun is how I label it. So feel free to run with that inspiration!
I will show the options to the committee. The committee includes zoo staff, wealthy donors and people with influence in town. We all understand the common goal is to raise funds and get people to attend the event, but it is a party and the creative should be attractive, cool and imaginative.
