I didn’t have must idea about designing and was concerned with how it would end up. Thanks to the designers who stepped up with guidance and options to choose from. I'm delighted with the designs and overall experience. I would recommend design seekers to launch contest at Designhill.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Design Contest?

    A design contest is actually a competition held among designers from around the world. Every participating designer submits a design(s), based on the brief provided by the client.

    Here, at Designhill, a client —

    • Writes a design brief
    • Puts a budget for the contest as the winning prize
    • Starts the contest

    The contest runs for many days in four stages.

    Subscribed Designhill designers from around the world get to know the contest post on Designhill. They submit their designs as per the design brief and compete for the winning prize.

    The client gives direction and feedback to the designers to help them make their designs better in two rounds of the competition.

    At last, the client picks a winning design from dozens of submissions. The winning designer is awarded the prize money. Post realization of the payment, the client gets the design files with full ownership and copyrights.

  • What is Crowdsourcing?

    Crowdsourcing is a way of getting a design related work done from a large group of designers in an online setting. It uses a large group of designers from around the world for their ideas, skills, and participation. On a common platform (Designhill), designers gather to complete a design task posted by a client. While the client walks away with relevant design, the designer gets the prize money.

  • What will I get with my design?

    Once you chose a design of your choice, you’ll get ready-to-use industry standard files for both online & print use with complete copyright and ownership.

  • Do I need to prepare something before I launch a design contest?

    Do I need to prepare something before I launch a design contest? Our Launch process takes care of the design visual styles, colors, brief for each category which is designed in a way that it helps the designers to understand the clients requirements clearly.

    Get Started Now
  • Can I get more than one design?

    You’ll receive dozens of design submissions by our global freelance talents to choose from. Choose one that meets your business needs. On an average a design contest receives 50+ designs in 7 days.

  • How can I work with the same designer in the future?

    If you want to work with the same designer in the future, you can start a one-to-one project with the designer. Upon beginning a one-to-one project, you can invite the designer to work along with you.

  • Do I get the copyright of the design?

    Of course! Once you select a winning design from your contest, the designer transfer you all the files along with a signed design transfer agreement.

  • Is there a Money Back Guarantee policy?

    Yes, there’s a 100% Money Back Guarantee policy. If you're not happy with how the job went, you can raise a dispute. Our Design Experts will fairly judge disputes. You will receive a full refund if we feel the designer has not provided the level of service you paid for. But, clients always have the option to select guaranteed contest.

  • What is guaranteed contest ?

    In a guaranteed design contest, a client forfeits a refund option by choosing the option "guaranteed prize."

    Guaranteed contests attract more designers leading to more design submissions than the contests without a guarantee.

    While a guaranteed contest is a wonderful upgrade for clients’ contests, we would like to repeat that the clients won’t be entitled to a refund once they make their contests guaranteed. However, once a client opts for a guaranteed contest option, it could make a lot of difference! They could get relevant and unique design submissions.

    A client can guarantee the contest at two different stages —

    • They can make their contest guaranteed during the contest launch. After they have filled the design brief, they need to go to “Contest Option” and check the box to confirm and apply this option.
    • During the contest running and qualifying round. All they need to do is to click the contest option icon and choose the Guaranteed Prize option. Confirm the option, and they’re done.

    Designers will be able to see that a contest is guaranteed on the contest page. They can also see it in the contest listing page.

  • Is there a way to make my design brief confidential?

    Clients can make their design brief confidential by lancing a private contest. Each of our private contests is secured by an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) which a designer must agree. Signing the NDA allows the designer to view the client’s design brief and participate in the contest.

    Search engines do not index private contests; therefore, clients get complete confidentiality.

    Also, designers won’t be able to add their designs submitted to a private contest into their Designhill portfolio. They cannot share private contests designs anywhere on the Web until they have modified it to a common business name so that it will not be associated with the contest in any scenario.

    Once the contest is finished, only the contest holder and the participating designers can view it. It won’t be visible to anyone else.

  • What if I want to use my own image in the design?

    Well there are several factors that needs to be taken into account, like time, money, etc. If you hire a freelance logo designer be sure that you would receive a creative logo in an affordable budget and less time. While if you go with a design agency, you would get a great logo design but it would be costly and take much longer time.
