NouCrowd.com Crowd sourcing has opened more possibilities for graphic design, but the methods exploit the young and professional designers. NouCrowd adapts the language and similar process of crowd sourcing design websites like CrowdSpring.com, and combines he business practices suggested by notable design organizations like AIGA. This website gives clients more than just the final product, but rather a complete package that shows the process and development of the design. Clients are encouraged to build a relationship with their selected designer through NouCrowdâ€™s video conference tool, chat, and feedback forums. Designers have a profile that shows their work experience and past projects on NouCrowd. This will allow the client to check the designer before they decide to work with them. The payment system is designed to prevent the client or designer from losing time and expenses. NouCrowdâ€™s system of crowd sourcing design limits spec work, and promotes better graphic design practice.

PAX Expo 2011 This is a rebranding of PAX Expo 2011. The logo was redesigned in order to improve legibility and target a wider audience of gamers. The logo is made of simple shapes to convey the simplicity of arcade games. The posters will be used within the expo, so that the attendees can be exposed to what is available. Each poster represents a different game genere, multiplayer online, shooters, and strategy. In addition, a representation of the main speakers are placed on the characters.
