DesignContest.com Review

Outline

Initially working as DesignContest.net, DesignContest.com got its new identification in 2010 after the purchase of the domain. This company is established in Marina Del Ray in California and has a team of about seven employees.
So if you are also the part of the clan which is interested in crowd sourcing and is looking for a horde of designers to outsource their work, then DesignContest.com can assuredly be your ideal choice!

Goods and Services

Besides working on its logo design industry, DesignContest.com also invites users to host a variety of design competitions. From business cards, icons and T-shirts to websites and banners- you can get a contest conducted here for whatever you like!  

This site is very much similar to 99designs.com. Users host a design contest for their particular project, entitle it with a prize money, provide their feedbacks and comments for improvements, choose the winner designer and then receive the ownership of all their designed work.

Whether you are businessman or a layman, you can freely visit this site to check out their attractive portfolio and follow and follow the ongoing contests.

A unique feature of DesignContest.com is the pre-screening of their designers. There numerous sites which brag about their large number of designers. Sadly, many of those designers are new in the field and do not have enough know-how of designing which is why they end up submitting mediocre designs and dissatisfying the contest holder. However, at DesignContest.com, the case is different. Before giving the projects, employees of this company find it essential to check the talent and skills of the designers participating in the contest. This way they can always ensure quality logos.

Another interesting feature DesignContest.com is that they give their valued users the opportunity to communicate directly with the designer they like.

System of Work

In order to get started with a logo contest, it is essential for you being the user to pick a package which is at least worth $289. It is important to remember that the higher the prize money you attach to your contest, the better the entries!
Once that is done, you decide the span of your contest. Your contest can stay active for an entire week but if you need additional time, then you can get it after paying $19. For offering your contest extra exposure and promotion, you can pay even more.

After you submit a brief to give designers an idea about the kind of logo you desire, your contest goes live and you start receiving a variety of concept designs. To improve your contest, you can omit the designs which you think are irrelevant and can give feedbacks for the rest so that the designers can come up with better concepts.

After the designated time of the contest is over, you choose the best design and award the designer with the prize money. You will then be able to have an access and ownership to all the artwork.

Guarantee Scheme

It is a great idea to get yourself acquainted with the ‘terms of service’ and the refund policy of DesignContest.com before you start doing business with them. Apparently, 100% refund can be expected only by the users who had less than 30 concepts in their concepts or the one who did not give any feedback for the 80% of the designs in their contest.
