kostis is an absolute designing GENIUS! I had originally lost hope when I launched my contest as the designs being submitted were mediocre at best, however, that all changed when kostis appeared like a designer saviour and helped restore my faith in 99 Designs. Thank you so much kostis for your exceptional design and for being so kind and professional towards a novice at this whole experience.
Working with 10works and 99designs was a great experience. 10works is an excellent graphic designer. His designs immediately stood out from the others. He continually came up with new ideas and was happy to tweak them to my specifications. He was always polite and professional. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a logo design.

Georgetown University, located in Washington DC, is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in the United States. The Georgetown University Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues is a platform for research, teaching, and high-level dialogue among American and Chinese leaders from the public sector, business, and the academy that addresses common challenges facing the global community (see https://uschinadialogue.georgetown.edu/)

We want cover art for a new podcast we are launching on U.S.-China diplomatic relations called "U.S.-China Dialogue." It is a podcast interviewing former U.S. Government officials on how to deal with China as a rising superpower. Although this will be hosted on the Georgetown University website and on the iTunes store, please do NOT include the Georgetown University logo or colors. I'd like to avoid the tired cliches of U.S. and Chinese flags or shaking hands.
Hi! The podcast is somewhat wonky policy discussion of interest to those following U.S. foreign policy and economics -- but that doesn't mean our cover art has to be stodgy!
Here's some more background on the project: the new podcast series will explore diplomacy and dialogue between China and the United States during the 40 years since normalization of relations in 1979. Our goal is to capture the reflections of key past and present senior policymakers and officials whose actions have shaped and are shaping the course of the relationship through the many twists and turns in what arguably is the most complex relationship in international diplomacy. We believe at this critical juncture, where both sides are rethinking the trajectory of the relationship, a project of this nature and scope can contribute to mutual understanding and provide ideas and lessons learned to successfully manage China-U.S. ties to advance peace and security in the rapidly evolving international order.
