Design like a machine? Get your original infographic featured on Ventureburn

Some of the biggest names in tech have… um… interesting beginnings. Motorola was originally the name of a car radio, Facebook started in a dorm room and Google began its life as a research project. Think you can tell their stories better than a boring Wikipedia page?

We’re looking for a talented designer to create an original infographic that shows how major players in the tech industry went from hopeful startups to household names. Outline the major events in their history and their quirky back stories and if we like your style, your design could be the one we pick to share with our readers.
