DesignCrowd

DesignCrowd (formerly DesignBay) is an online marketplace for logo, website, print and graphic design services by providing access to freelance graphic designers and design studios around the world.

DesignCrowd gives you access to a ‘virtual team’ of 61,393 designers from around the world (via a process called crowdsourcing) - helping you to tap into the very best international design talent available, at a low cost. Post a project on DesignCrowd and watch designs pour in from around the world (the average project receives 50+ designs).

We pride ourselves on quality (not just quantity) - DesignCrowd uses “Crowdsourcing 2.0” a fairer, sustainable, higher quality crowdsourcing where every designer can get paid and customers can browse our top graphic designers and hand-pick their favourites.

In December 2011, DesignCrowd acquired, (formally Brandstack) an online marketplace for premium ready-made logos and brands. Following the acquisition DesignCrowd has launched BrandCrowd and has combined the Brandstack service with the existing DesignCrowd community.
