What Company Is Offering:
99designs is to help you run a “design contest”, where thousands of designers compete to create the best possible design to meet your needs. All you need is a clear idea of what you want designed and how much you’re prepared to pay for it.
How It Works:
Step 1: Create Your Design Brief
They will ask you a few simple questions that will form your design brief. A design brief is just a summary of what you need designed. It costs $39 USD to post your brief on 99designs.com.
Step 2: Set Your Budget
They will ask you how much you’re willing to pay the winning designer to purchase their design. This is called the prize. Prize amounts generally range from $50 to $500 depending on the type of design you require.
Step 3: Work with the Designers
Once your design brief has been posted to 99designs.com, designers from around the globe will submit design concepts to compete for your prize. It’s your job to rate the designs and provide feedback to help the designers deliver what you want.
Step 4: Choose Your Favorite Design
At the completion of the design contest (which is a maximum of 7 days) you will choose a winning design and pay the designer the prize amount. The designer will send you their completed design along with copyright to the original art work.
That’s all there is to it. Take a look at some of the design contests currently running and see why 99designs is the best choice for your next design project.
