Royo got their new print or packaging design by running a design contest:
Create the world's most beautiful cheat-sheet for keyboard junkies on key.bo
Check out Royo's Print or packaging design contest…
Key.bo is a search engine/wiki that keyboard junkies use to store and share keyboard shortcuts of their favorite applications.
What's your vision?
Imagine the user of our site going to the page listing all the shortcuts for adobe photoshop: take a look at this page: http://key.bo/apps/25-adobe-photoshop-cs5 now the user wants to PRINT a reference card (cheat sheet) from this page. your mission is to design a a printable version of that page (which can contain 50+ shortcut categories and 400+ individual shortcuts): see attached files for color example from microsoft, of the size and resolution required. DO NOT use the attachment as a reference for how to design this in terms of colors or layout (for that you can use the PSD if you like, but don't have to). . My hope is that your designs will be much more beautiful and readable. BLACK/WHITE/GRAY/COLOR ------------------------ your design should be in A4 size, color but should remain easily readable if printed on black/white/gray A4 regular office inkjets. We will be asking our users to PAY a 0.99$ fee for getting a customized PDF with their favorite application shortcuts. so it needs to be beautiful readable and usable to hang on a wall. ELEMENTS: ------------- the PDF will have these elements: - application name - list of categories (just a name) - for each category the list of its shortcuts - each shortcut has THREE fields: name, KEYS, and extra_notes (a couple of sentences, or empty) - shortcuts that are FAVORITED by the current user will be shown differently, and likely in their own category named "your favorites" in that page. MATERIALS ---------- as an output I would need - An Example PDF that shows what a cheat sheet with 2 pages worth of categories and shortcuts (at least 3 categories and 20 shortcuts, or more to fill up at least two pages worth - dont worry about using real ones, just create a fake couple of shortcuts and repeat them). - a visual style guide (including a layout guide so we can learn how to "generate" these on the fly for different applications) - a PSD with all the graphic elements needed to generate any of the ODF types of sizes and quality these last two are very important because with them we can use them to generate PDFs on the fly based on user request, for each application. that means that we also need LAYOUT INSTRUCTIONS on when to break to a new page for example, widths of columns, height of rows etc..
Remember that we will be asking people to pay almost 0.99$ each for any print generation, so they need to be beautiful and hang-on-the-wall functional if printed in a regular office printer. DESIGN THE CHEAT SHEET YOU WOULD HAVE LOVED TO HAVE HANGING ON YOUR WALL.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets.

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 print or packaging design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Royo 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 a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
