Images are what make content stand out online and in print. Logos are essential to making your brand memorable. But what do you do if you aren’t a graphic artist? Fortunately, there are platforms that make it easy to find the perfect graphic designer for you in particular.
While there are several, most of them work in a similar manner. For this post I’ll explain how Designhill works because they provide 24×7 customer service at no extra charge so you can’t get stuck. There is always someone online to assist you.
As you can see in the image above, there were already 24, 824 designers using Designhill when I captured this screen shot. As you can see from the image, there are many options for refining your search for the perfect designer.
Designhill curates their designers and contests typically receive 100+ designs at what Designhill estimates to be 30% less expensive than the designs on competitive sites.
How to Request Custom Graphic Designs
The way this type of graphic design site works is that you create what they call a “contest” and designers submit preliminary designs. The first step is to decide what kind of graphic you want.
If you’re going to eventually want multiple types, choose one for now. Once you find the design and designer you like best you can have the same designer create the others to match.
While logo designs are very popular, any kind of graphic design can be obtained through Designhill including business cards, letterhead, clothing, mobile icons, infographics, and CD covers.
After you choose the type of graphic you need, post a brief that describes your project. Then choose a package and launch your contest. Designers will start submitting designs for you to choose from and you can interact with them to request changes in color, design, wording or font.
Share your potential designs with friends, co-workers, family or partners. Get their feedback on which they like best. Take their suggestions and request unlimited revisions. Then choose your favorite.
Once you make a decision, the designer will create the final versions and send you all the files. Your payment, which has been held in escrow, will then be released to the designer.
In a hurry to get a logo? They even have a ready-made logo design store where you can choose from an existing logo and have your company name added to it.
Why Designhill Offers Free Support
Designhill says their competitors charge up to $300 alone for dedicated support. Because they understand the importance of guidance and support since online crowdsourcing is an alien concept to most clients, they choose to provide 24×7 support for free.
When asked about their support, founder Rahul Aggarwal had this to say:
85-90 percent clients are first time users of crowdsourcing sites and if they are not guided on how to get the best out of the service it won’t be fair on anyone – not the clients or the designers. Hence we focus a lot on customer support! I even gave a client a design for free when a customer support executive made a mistake.
