Freelancer.com has launched the world’s largest crowdsourcing site for logo designers. More than 600,000 designers have signed up to the outsourcing website, making it the highest concentration of designers online.
“Over 600,000 of our 2.6 million freelancers are designers, more than any other freelance or design marketplace. Combined with over 320,000 design projects completed to date, and more than 12,000 design projects being posted each month, our logo marketplace is the largest in the world,” said Matt Barrie, CEO of Freelancer.com.
Barrie said commissions for logos were low, starting at 3%, making the new marketplace “the most lucrative in the world for designers”.
The new crowdsourcing site, Freelancer Design Contest, is a response to the large numbers of design work posted on the Freelancer.com website. Almost of a third of more than 1 million projects posted on Freelancer.com have been design related.
Businesses submit a brief and run a contest, with designers submitting their entries in response.
“When you’ve found the design you like, you award the winner and collect your files,” explained Barrie. “If you need a logo, hold a contest on Freelancer.com. We have more designers than anyone else, greater market depth and charge lower commissions resulting in higher payouts to designers.”
The site has already proved popular, with two contests attracting more than 6,000 submissions in the first week of operation.
