Nowadays virtually any business requires designs in one form or another for a quality and professional look. If you are an author you need a great book cover design, if you are a website owner you need a high quality hassle free template, or even if you are in a business which has nothing to do with design, say an estate agent, you still need a logo, a business card and an office banner designed for a quality look.
Gone are the days when you had to physically travel and search for a good designer in your city. Today you can get not one, not ten but literally hundreds of designs by just a click of a button. This is made possible via online design companies. Although there are many on the Internet our recommendation is that you try DesignCrowd.
DesignCrowd, as of the time of writing of this article, had more than 90,000 designers from across the globe. Here you will get the option to choose a design out of many designs and you won’t be restricted to one or two designs that you would have received if you would have hired a single designer. When you will post a project it will receive many submissions – 50 on an average. I will describe the process later.
DesignCrowd can help and benefit both the people who need designs and the people who are online graphic designers themselves. DesignCrowd can get you a design in a number of categories ranging from logos to envelopes and from Twitter designs to web pages. See the image below for a complete list of categories in which DesignCrowd works.
For those who need designs
Let’s say you need a quality design for some project of yours and are not sure where to find it. DesignCrowd has the answer. With DesignCrowd you can get a lot of minds working on your project and so you will have many different options to choose from. The steps involved are simple and straight forward. First publish a project on the website with a few details like your budget, the type of design you want and deadline. Then designers will submit their designs which you can then show to your coworkers or friends to get their word on it. Remember the more your budget the more designs you will get. After this you can request the designers whose design you liked for some revisions if you want, and then you can download the files and release the payment.
See these logo design contests for some examples.

Clients keep posting new projects on the website and designers can participate in any of the threads they like. If your design wins you get the money promised by the client and a lot of visibility as your name hyperlinked to your profile will appear as the first prize winner for that respective project.
