DesignBay is a design marketplace where customers can run design contests, request quotes or find designers for logo design, website design, business cards, brochure design, illustration and other design.
DesignBay’s mission is “to give creative people opportunities and help businesses find the best design possible”. DesignBay’s business model is often referred to as ‘crowdsourcing’.
Customers can run design contests on DesignBay where competing designers submit designs. The customer then chooses the best design and pays the designer.
Customers can also request quotes where competing designers submit bids. The customer then selects the best / cheapest quote.
