Caryng and Fotolanthropy: a Picture Perfect Designer-client Relationship
At 99designs, we cherish relationships and are proud to have a platform that connects designers and clients, even past a contest win. We regularly hear from designers who have built their business’ foundation solely from the clients they’ve met through our site, and these stories are what we love to honor and share.
When 99designer Caryn Garabette created the winning photography logo for Katie Norris Portrait Arts in October 2010, she had no idea what type of client relationship lay ahead.Even [job title email list ]https://www.latestdatabase.com/c-level-executive-list/) countries apart, CarynG stayed in contact with client, Katie Norris who needed additional design services for her photography company.foto brochure“Caryn had created a logo that was beautiful, clean and elegant. She learned my style during the logo process, so it’s a relief to know that I can contact her and get what we hope for done so efficiently.” foto welcomeBrochure design for Katie Norris Portrait ArtsAfter talking to both CarynG and Katie, it’s clear their client-designer relationship has blossomed into much more than a brochure design and welcome packet.
Since their encounter on 99designs, not only have they become “facebook official” friends but have become good friends that chat quite naturally, Katie turned to CarynG for more design help when Katie followed her passion and founded giving-based company, fotolanthropy in 2011. Designing for a good cause was something CarynG was happy to be apart of. As CarynG stated, what’s there not to love about “creative people using their creative talents for a good cause.” Based out of Dallas, Texas, fotolanthropy captures and shares true stories through professional photography and film. The stories are of families and individuals who have faced difficult challenges, like terminal disease or a child born with a disability.
As Katie puts it, “by telling their story through the creative excellence of photography and film we are able to honor them, as well as inspire others…” foto CardsCard designs for fotolanthropyAnd inspiring they do.

RotRed and JacobParrIt’s inauguration day, here at 99designs! The Democratic and Republican parties would do well to pay attention, as we now have two outstanding, (unofficially) re-designed party logos to showcase. To say the least, they give the official logos something to aspire to.The members of the community really made their voices heard over the past few weeks to elect the following designs by RotRed and JacobParr as favorites.
After extending our congratulations to these top-notch designers (both design students), we took the opportunity to chat with them about their design processes, their feelings about graphic design in politics generally, and their votes for what the next community contest should be.Name: Najla Mansour99designs handle: RotRedLocation: Newcastle Upon Tyne, UKNajla is a graphic designer and architect who is preparing for a masters degree in Advanced Architectural Design.
“I thought by studying architecture I would be a designer who can design everything – graphic design is in my blood and under my skin!” she says. “Every time you finish a design you feel that you brought something to life, you gave something a soul, that something came from your mind and thoughts – this is what I call creation.”
