We couldn't be more pleased. 99designs has cracked the code when it comes to delivering a crowdsourcing solution that respects and meets the needs of both the designer and client communities.
The process for launching and managing a contest is transparent and supported with on-site and live chat help if necessary. 99designs has obviously thought this process through and designed it to provide real-time collaboration between clients and designers, tools to expand the number of designers participating, feedback from others invited by the client, and a smooth handover that pays a lot of attention to ensuring that there are no additional intellectual property issues to worry about.
99designs is secure in its value proposition, so it doesn't try to put up artificial barriers between clients and designers; in fact, it encourages and even facilitates follow-up one-one-one engagements between a client and a winning designer. This approach attracts talented designers who obviously produce quality designs.
We will not hesitate to recommend 99designs to any client seeking a fast, smooth, and easy way to generate and obtain high-quality design work for a reasonable price.
