Anyone ever use 99designs or Crowdspring for design work?

Basically,
You post the amount you will pay (typically $250-$300) and post your idea for a logo or design that you need and a contest is created in which multiple designers compete for the cash. I have been looking over the sites and have seen some great work. Does anyone have any experience with either of these or others like them?

Depends on what you are doing and what kind of response you get. You can get a lot of ideas (and crap) that takes a lot of time to sift thru.

Were you successful in getting what you were looking for?

Yes I suppose so. We farmed out an algorithmic problem to the unwashed massed, and the results were from pathetic to the functional, but nothing "OMG! that's genius!" . Nothing that we couldn't have coded out ourselves if we'd just done it. As mentioned earlier, the time spent evaluating various submissions probably made the thing a wash, man-hours wise..

It was interesting as a process experiment. YMMV. Go'fer it, for your application you might have better results.
