Marketing: Web Tools for Design

Design Your Web Site

CrowdSpring: Graphic Design Marketplace (And Much More)
Ever paid a designer a large sum of money only to be dissatisfied after three rounds and stuck with a logo or Web site you detest? Be dissatisfied no more!

I love the concept behind CrowdSpring. You submit your request, set the price, then scroll through pages of gorgeous designs submitted for your approval. If you see something you like, you can ask a designer for specific revisions before you seal the deal.

CrowdSpring ensures that you get your artwork and the freelancer gets paid. The best part, you’re guaranteed at least 25 submissions. And now, as part of their “Give Back” initiative, nonprofits can obtain custom designs for FREE. It doesn’t get much better than that.

  4. Hi Jacalyn,

    Thanks so much for these kind words about crowdSPRING. 11,000 creatives from 130+ countries are working on crowdSPRING and helping small businesses and startups with creative needs – including logo, website, blog design, marketing materials, advertisements, brochures, etc. We offer buyers a guarantee that they’ll get at least 25 entries to their project or their money back, and we offer numerous protections, including free customized legal agreements for the purchase of intellectual property on crowdSPRING.

    Our Give Back program, as you wrote, which helps worthy nonprofits and charities – shows the real power of creatives around the world uniting to help a common cause – most recently, a UK based group for fathers of autistic kids.

    We invite all your readers to take a look.
