Designers, we are looking for a beautifully clean newsletter template to be used for e-newsletters to our clients and our design community. The style should be consistent with the look and feel of 99designs. The key will be to keep it simple, sharp and flexible with the ability to alter the length depending on the content needs for any given month.
The content of the newsletter will shift from month to month and will feature sections such as:
• Business profile/case study
• Designer profile
• Contest tips (for the holder)
• 99designs news/events
• Elements of good design
• Design of the month
• Featured contests
• Design applications: The many uses of design
Note: each newsletter will not necessarily contain all of the above.
Ultimately we want the newsletter to add value. From the client perspective we want to convey quality of service and product, provide tips to enhance contest holder experience, highlight successes and expose additional opportunities for design. From the designer perspective we essentially want to do the same thing -showcase the excellence of the community and provide useful information to enhance the designer’s craft and overall experience of 99designs.
