High Quality Design Work That Beats The Rest

When we look at the quality of designs offered by all of our logo content companies, we have to put DesignCrowd up there because they hold some very talented designers who can offer nothing but the best quality, usability and a keen eye for detail. The designs are so clean, strong and unique that some of them even beat design studios, but what makes DesignCrowd so good is that you can hire an upcoming designer for a great price, before they hit the big time and start charging big amounts.

A Great Looking Website With a Few Usability Issues

With their cute icons and thoughtful color scheme, it’s obvious DesignCrowd put a lot of effort into their website. The result looks and feels great, but unfortunately doesn’t entirely translate to a user-friendly experience. Part of this is because this isn’t strictly a logo design service so there’s a lot of extra content to go through. The rest of it is because DesignCrowd’s navigation isn’t always as intuitive as it could be – you could spend some quality time snooping around for the gallery page before you find it hiding below the fold or behind another link.

Luckily posting a contest isn’t nearly as confusing. There’s a clearly marked link at the top of each page which sends you to the signup form and from there to the creative brief, the payment process and the beginning of your contest.
At the contest stage you’ll be asked to give feedback and comment on the designs you receive. After picking a winner, DesignCrowd will move you to the helpful “design handover” phase (and special page), where you can talk to the winning designer, request small changes and finally download your logo files.

A Serviceable Brief

Even though it doesn’t get into all the specifics, the DesignCrowd brief is still fairly detailed. They also deserve special mention for allowing you to choose (for free!) how long your contest will last.

Feature
Description

Business information
There are no specific clauses to describe your business or industry but there is a "task description" box where you can tell the designers what it is you need and for whom (it even comes with an example).

General requests or directions
Funnily enough, DesignCrowd's general requests actually get pretty specific: you can tell designers about the things you need, the things you'd like to see and the things you don't want.

Attributes
Use DesignCrowd's slider list to choose whether your logo should be elegant or bold, colorful or conservative and more.

Logo Styles
With few explanations but several examples for each option, DesignCrowd lets you choose the style you want.

Colors

-


Logo Usage
You'll be asked to describe your target market.

DesignCrowd’s Features Make Customer Satisfaction a Priority

I won’t say much about DesignCrowd’s testimonial page, not because it isn’t good (it is) but because the website has so many other great features that this seems so small in comparison. I’m talking about a great designer profile interface in which you can filter designers by earnings, positive feedback and more. I’m also talking about a freelance option that lets you approach specific designers and hire them for a one-on-one job.

Then I should mention that DesignCrowd is one of the only contest websites that lets you give contest participants individual feedback – largely because each entry is private, which is a great way to ensure originality and creativity. At the same time, if you want to get a second opinion you can always share your contest entries with friends and get their input. These features have one thing in common: They’re all about putting the customer and the final product first.

Pricing on DesignCrowd is a little tricky. On the one hand, the minimum price is very good for a contest website ($240 including service fees). On the other, a glance at the actual contests shows that most of them don’t go much lower than $400. This doesn’t mean you can’t get a good contest going for less, but it could mean that the better designers would be reluctant to participate in it.

Then again the price packages are customizable, so you don’t have to jump to the next package to improve your chances. DesignCrowd also offers some small additions that could help draw in designers, such as a $20 participation fee for the top runner ups or the option to give up your refund guarantee and commit to awarding a prize.

Any Time, Any Place

I sure do love DesignCrowd’s support. Besides their active Twitter and Facebook accounts they also have a great FAQ page, an email contact option and even a live chat box for the purchasing stage – at least during business hours. Of course you could always just pick up the phone and call them, but then you’d have to choose between the 7 (yes) different international numbers they provide. Life is just hard that way. The support you’ll get, by the way, will be as prompt and efficient as any in the business.

"They dont pay their designers"

DETAILED SCORES
Pros
  • Many designers being fooled everyday
Cons
  • Bad for clients
  • Bad for designers
  • You have to request for your money
  • You have to accept some losses
  • Support takes up to 8 days to reply
Summary I'm a member for a long time, and every time I have to contact support to get PAID. I never trusted the organization and transparency of the website, so I keep track of everything I made for them and fight for every penny. But now they are refusing to make a few payments. They take days to respond and they request prove; good thing I have them... NOT REALLY... even showing the prove they KEEP DENYING to pay. I suggest you stay away, but if you want to take some risks, please save every prove you can and fight for your money. Will not be easy, but you can win few times. Good luck!

Pros
  • Quick turnaround
  • Fun experience
  • Good price/value
Cons
  • Some logo designs missed key elements noted in the brief
Summary This was our first time using DesignCrowd and we couldn't be happier. We recently moved to a small farm and wanted a logo designed. We submitted our brief and received over 20 designs within 48 hours (some within a few hours). One design stood out beyond the rest and we selected it before the end of the design period.

Again, very happy with the logo designed for us and with the whole DesignCrowd experience. We will gladly recommend DesignCrowd to others.

Thank you.
