Hate the new eBay logo? 99designs runs contest to design a better one

A few weeks ago, eBay updated its logo for the first time in 17 years. Probably overdue, but no surprise that not everyone was thrilled. The folks at 99designs heard from enough people who didn’t like the new look that they decided to launch their own contest to design a better alternative.

The contest is not sanctioned by eBay, and for that matter, it’s probably not winning them any brownie points with eBay. But no matter, so far 522 designers have submitted 1,737 entries. The site has selected the 8 best and are asking folks to vote on their favorite.
