99designs, the world’s largest online graphic design marketplace, today announced the launch of Pro Tools, a new suite of services designed specifically to meet the needs of marketing agencies, web development agencies, and other businesses that frequently use freelance designers to source custom graphic design.
“We’ve been really excited by the adoption of 99designs’ marketplace model by agencies and larger companies. In the course of working with tens of thousands of these customers, it became increasingly apparent that we needed to develop tools specifically tailored to meet their demands,” said 99designs President and CEO Patrick Llewellyn. “We look forward to working closely with our Pro Tools customers in coming months to further expand and refine the offering.”
The Pro Tools suite provides 99designs’ agency and other high-usage business customers with more streamlined talent sourcing and management; enhanced collaboration and feedback; and augmented privacy and security. Specific features of the Pro Tools suite include:
99designs developed the Pro Tools suite based on interviews with hundreds of 99designs’ agency and other high-usage business customers that regularly source custom graphic design from 99designs. Approximately 13 percent of 99designs’ current customers are agencies working across a variety of disciplines ranging from marketing and public relations to web design and development.
“We were an early adopter of 99designs and have been successfully using the service for years to develop custom creative for a diverse set of clients,” said Zack Bujazia, Incredible Creative Officer at Incredible Marketing, a B2B marketing agency with offices in the United States and Australia. “The new Pro Tools suite will help us work more efficiently by simplifying feedback loops with our clients and empowering us to easily work with our favorite talent in the 99designs’ community.”
Customers can purchase the Pro Tools suite for $199 when they launch any contest on 99designs. For the next month, 99designs is offering Pro Tools for an introductory rate of $99.
