99designs acquires LogoChef, welcomes a new Brazilian design community

Kaitlyn Ellison

99designs acquires again! We’re proud to announce our second acquisition: the creative design marketplace LogoChef — one of the leading design marketplaces of Brazil.

Our announcement comes almost exactly one year after our first acquisition, German marketplace 12Designer, and following on the success of internationalizing the site around the world: Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Argentina and now Portuguese-language Brazil.

We’re excited to welcome all of LogoChef’s Brazilian designers into our design community, as well as one of LogoChef’s cofounders Dan Strougo (pictured below) as the Brazil Country Manager. The 99designs family just keeps growing and growing!

“On the back of our successful launch last week of Swiftly, which significantly broadens our design product offering, we’re excited to be taking the next step in our globalization strategy with the acquisition of LogoChef. With small businesses and startups driving 99 percent of Brazil’s economy, we have an extraordinary opportunity to connect a new group of our core customers with designers there and around the world.”

— 99designs President and CEO Patrick Llewellyn
