Remember the last time you wanted to have an awesome logo design made and you went with the sketchy design company? You probably paid too much money for a logo that wasn’t exactly what you wanted in the first place. Since you went with a designer directly they may also be limiting you on how many revisions you can make to your design and even worse, they might be charging you for all of these changes!
There must be a better and more exciting way to get graphic design and logo work done without such limitations! This is exactly what DesignCrowd.com was thinking when they created their freelance designer market place. Instead of paying for just one logo design, you are accessing a whole fleet of designers who will will submit dozens of logos to you (see examples). Once you’ve had a chance to look over all of their designs, you then pick a winner. The designer is paid for their work and you receive the logo and design files that you are completely happy with!
Let’s take a deeper look at DesignCrowd and see what it’s all about!
The cool thing about DesignCrowd is that you aren’t limited by what you can do. Whether you want a business card, a logo design or a full site design, they have all of the packages and features for you to choose from. Once you decide what type of design project you want to start, you then go through the pricing process and select how many different designers you would like to open the project up to. These features and settings are all based on the project type you are launching and how much you are willing to pay.
The concept is simple:
- Post a project
- Get 100s of designs
- Select the best design
With over 80,000 graphic designers on the site and the average design project receiving over 100+ designs, it’s well worth the money if you are looking for a wide variety of logo designs to choose from.
Setting Up Your Design Project is Easy
What I really like about the DesignCrowd market place is how they make it visually appealing, fast and fun to setup new projects.. Once you sign up for a free account and click on the “Post a design project” button, you will get started with the process. Select the type of project you would like to start, then you will see a pricing chart like the one below, which also shows you the different packages available and how many designers you can expect to receive designs from. Obviously the higher the package you go, the more designers and designs you will receive. If by the slight chance you aren’t happy with any of the designs that have been submit to you, DesignCrowd will refund your project budget, which is something many other design market places won’t do.
Check out the DesignCrowd Portfolio
Nothing is better than letting designs speak for themselves and this is exactly what you can do by looking through looking through the DesignCrowd community portfolio and designer directory. Before going live with your next logo design project, be sure to look through the gallery and see what type of colors and creative ideas you might like to have displayed in your logo or design. If you happen to find a designer that you like over others, you can decide to contact them through DesignCrowd and work with them directly on projects.
As you already know, there are plenty of design services out there, but when it comes to finding exactly what you want and need, there is almost no better solution than running a design project that can bring different designs from hundreds of different designers. DesignCrowd looks like it will be a major in the graphic design space and I’m sure I will be using them for a few upcoming logos and projects!
