99Destigns brings artists together on a level playing field -- talent overrides all other factors, including birthplace, education or experience. The process is fascinating -- I logged in constantly to see the latest interpretations of my story concept. In the end, I had three compelling designs that would have worked well. My final round featured designs from Serbia, the UK, and Texas. This was my second book design through 99Designs, and I had great experiences both times. Kudos to a great platform, and for literally bringing the world together!
