In September, eBay released a refreshed logo design, with the intention of conveying “a cleaner, contemporary look,” eBay told Business InsiderSome branding experts found the design too simple, and a little boring.

So 99designs, a crowdsourcing graphic design firm that connects designers to customers looking for affordable designs, launched a contest asking its community to create a better marque for eBay.

“We’ve received more than 1,200 entries, with another 24 or so hours to go, and then will select finalists and launch a poll to the public to help us pick the best one,” the company said in an email to Business Insider.

That’s a LOT of logos to look at. We sifted through all of them, and pulled our favourite 15. We chose those that demonstrated a creative spin on the existing brand platform, but also responded to eBay’s desire to be more contemporary.

Visit 99design’s contest website to check out all of the designs that have been submitted yourself.
