Let's face it, we all need good designs for our businesses these days. Whether it's book covers, logos, t-shirt designs, infographics, product labels, etc., having professional graphics are essential.
The problem is, graphic design is not for everyone. Only a fraction of us are actually artistic and even if you fit that category, do you have the spare time to design everything yourself?
Most likely not. This is why you need to be able to get quality graphic design services done when needed. But, where do you go to get this done while fitting it in your budget?
Here are 3 of the best websites for outsourcing graphic design services:
If you're on a tight budget and need graphic design services for a variety of reasons, you could do a lot worse than Fiverr. For just $5, you can get all kinds of services done for you.
Some designers will do a book cover or two for $5 with unlimited revisions until you're satisfied. Some will do a full infographic for you for the same price.
There are a lot of great possibilities with Fiverr and you get to stay under budget without hardly any negotiating.
The only problems are you might not get as high quality work as other places and a lot of times the best designers will have hundreds of orders in their queue.
So, what you save in cost may make up for itself in the time it takes to get the work done, depending on the designer you go with.
It might be in your best interest to get someone with lots of high reviews that doesn't have too many orders in their queue.
Luckily there are dozens of graphic design freelancers to choose from, so you can just go down the list until you find one that seems to fit your need.
If you want the highest quality work you can get on your designs while having lots of options and styles to choose from, 99Designs is your go-to website.
With 99Designs, you choose a package, answer some questions about what designs you are looking for and then let a whole community of talented designers compete with each other to give you the best design.
The competition and incredible talent pool results in probably the highest quality designs you will find anywhere.
They have designed top logos, professional labels for best-selling supplements, book covers for New York Times bestselling books like The 4 Hour Workweek, etc.
The only downside to 99Designs is the cost. You better have a fat budget if you plan on using them as their lowest package is roughly $300. But, if you can afford it, you won't be disappointed.
UpWork is one of the biggest names in the freelancing space. Here, you have thousands of highly-qualified freelancers ready to offer all kinds of services like web development, graphic design, marketing, writing, etc.
This is a great place to find some talented graphic designers and with the UpWork format, you will have more freedom in picking talent than just about anywhere else.
The way it works is you create a listing for the services you want, adding a description of what you need, what you're looking for in a freelancer, what you are willing to pay, etc.
Then, after a day or two, you will have interested freelancers who have countered the ad with the price they will work for.
You can then go down the list and weigh your options based on what languages the freelancer speaks best, the price they will work for, their past experience, etc.
You can even shoot a few message back and forth or interview them more personally on skype before hiring them. You have a lot of freedom in choosing who does the work for you.
Once you hire someone, you can set goals or deadline that they must meet for full pay to make sure they are progressing on the project quick enough.
With UpWork, you have the most options as far as price and who to choose to work for you, as long as your project is appealing. You just have to be willing to work with others, negotiate and hire effectively.
You really can't go wrong with any of these 3 options when it comes to outsourcing graphic design services. Each can fit a certain budget. Each offers more or less options. But, they are all solid.
If you have a low budget and minor projects to get done, I recommend Fiverr, although they have added a lot more premium options lately as well.
If you have a big budget and want to see work done in many different styles from some of the best designers in the business, I recommend 99Designs.
If you want flexibility and the most control possible of your project, while having at least a medium-sized budget, I recommend you go with UpWork.
You really can't go wrong with any of these websites.
