ZillionDesigns announces its re-launch, aiming with its graphic design contracting platform to change the way customers find design projects.
ZillionDesigns’ unique crowdsourcing competition model provides users with more options, at better prices than traditional freelance channels and agencies, without sacrificing quality.
Today, all your design needs, from web pages to t-shirts, can be accessed on a single site. With a proven team of more than 50,000 designers, and over 100,000 satisfied customers in 200 countries, ZillionDesigns has the established industry traction to capitalize on the general push toward crowd contracting.
“Graphic design has always been central to branding, marketing and creative ventures,” says ZillionDesigns Founder Zaheer Dodhia, “and especially with the growth in digital mediums – mobile apps, web startups, etc. — the industry is only growing. But what you saw a few years ago was that people were getting stuck with money already invested in these poor contracting arrangements, and wound up overpaying for services that were either late or insufficient. ZillionDesigns changes that.”
Zaheer Dohia explains that, in the traditional graphic design marketplace, customers pay money upfront for work that often comes in late and might not fit the project even when it does. “With a talent agency or a freelancer, you’re essentially at their mercy,” he says. “They’ve usually got other works going on at the same time, so the turnaround can be bad and the options few.”
Because of its open competition model and global team of designers, however, ZillionDesigns can guarantee a broad range of options for clients to choose from and an end to drawn-out waiting periods. “Within a week,” says Zaheer, “users can expect to have 100 high-quality design options or more in hand.
The process is simple: users create competitions online, explaining the specifications of the project, and setting a timeframe for submissions and payment amount for the winner. The competition then gets vetted through ZillionDesigns worldwide network of over 50,000 designers, who send in fully completed concepts for the user to pick from. ZillionDesigns refunds any competitions that fail to receive at least 30 submissions, but the average project gets nearly 110 entries, and any ZillionDesigns submission comes with unlimited concept possibilities.
“Fixed deadlines mean that designs come in when they’re supposed to,” says Zaheer. “Open competition keeps prices low, and users can select the best quality options from a pool of finished products without committing themselves to any one designer beforehand. At ZillionDesigns, our focus is to put the customer in a position where his business is valued and fought over. That’s the best way to ensure a high quality service arrives in a timely fashion.”
ZillionDesigns lets users start individual competitions, or choose from a list of prearranged packages, each of which comes with unlimited design concept, unlimited revisions, multiple file formats and a dedicated project manager for oversight. And with options ranging from logo, web, graphic and packaging design, ZillionDesigns is a one-stop shop for all creative needs.
“Graphic design continues to factor in to virtually every business out there, new or old,” says Zaheer Zodia. “And with an expansive online competition model, ZillionDesigns is poised to disrupt the industry and place itself at the forefront of crowdsourcing innovation.”
