Crowdsourcing vs. Traditional Design: The Results

Posted on July 14th, 2010 · Posted in FHSST

A long time ago we set out to get two sets of textbook covers designed, one for Physical Science Gr 10-12 and one for Mathematics Gr 10-12. We used the opportunity to test crowdsourcing against traditional design. Here are the results of the two processes for you to compare.

Crowdsourcing versus Traditional Design

We've decided to run our own internal competition. The prize will be bragging rights as the optimal process for future covers for OpenPress / FHSST texts. We are going to allocate the same budget sourcing sets of covers for the Maths and Physical Science books, but we are going to have the Maths set commissioned by a regular design firm and we'll get the Physical Science ones created on 99Designs.
