The power of crowdsourced graphic design   

They specialise in graphic design, a marketplace where you can request the market to design you something special in the budget that you select, this options has many designers fighting for your business using a tender style approach or if you are really in a hurry browse their logo store for pre-designed

 

Graphics make the design of a site, a really great website. We don't spend as much time as we would like on this site when it comes to looks, but when you see great graphics you know it. Infographic, great photographs and graphics of all shapes and sizes that match can make your website stand out from the crowd.


So lets look at the pro's and con's

 




Cons

 

1. Do you have the eye

 

Are you able to make the right choice when it comes to design with confidence, having a great choice of designs can leave you not knowing which way to turn or even change your mind altogether. 

 

2. Location location location

 

Having designers around the globe is one thing, having someone next to you to talk too, bounce ideas of and discuss the project with is gold itself. A little hard to do via an email any only a little easier with Skype unless you have seen the Iphone advert for Skype and then it just seems easy.


Pros

 

1. Super-affordable

 

Graphic design is usually quite expensive, which should be no problem for most large projects and can be validated for long-term project. But if you are just starting out with a new project or feel that you are not sure of the bigger picture then then expensive design is hard to except. Richard Branson had the virgin log designed on the back of a napkin by a designer over a coffee. It was only a concept at the time for the designer!

 

In most crowd sourced marketplaces, you can actually submit how much you are willing/able to pay – and you’ll get bid ideas sent back to you or you can go with a single designer from the work that you see.

 

Of course, the quality and choice tends to go up with the mount you’re paying…but you remain a the wheel with you just paying for what you get.

 

And if you are really on a budget – you can browse off the shelf logos – which can be customized within 24 hours if you need it a short notice. 

 

2. quick to implement with ease

 

Just submitted the bid choose the logo and it get customized ready for download. 

 

3. Choice

 

Choice is where the negative becomes the positive, if you don't like have something is going you can get another at a reasonable price and with no retainers, you are free to use another designer and no invoiced hours for no return on investment.

 

4. Trust and timeframe

 

Hiring a professional or freelancer means your working around them to get a piece completed. It takes time to work out a timetable for larger projects and to trust each other unless you are working on a referral from someone you know.

 

Crowdsourced designer takes care of this element for you. I doesn't matter if you are working with some random person in Bulgaria whom you'll never see or meet – you both know that you'll get your work and they know that they will get paid.

 

5. Multiple perspectives

 

Since you get ideas from people the world over – you don't limit yourself to single concepts. Every idea is unique. 


Result 

 

Positive - crowdsourced designing is a great way to find your partner in design if you want a quick reliable service for low cost smaller projects. 


Conclusion

 

If you are working on a valid, long-term project (or have an established business), look locally for a professional graphic designer.
