With a Trustpilot score of 4.7 stars out of 5, DesignBro is a platform that merits attention.
Located in Europe with offices in Ireland and in the Netherlands, their designers are sourced internationally with the distinction being that they are hand-curated before they are allowed to join the DesignBro platform.
While this may be seen to be elitist with a commensurate bump in their charge-out rates, their results and exceedingly high levels of customer satisfaction speaks spades about their success in the marketplace.
The DesignBro platform uses crowdsourcing across their community of designers. Designers compete for projects with a shortlist of finalists competing for the final design spot.
Typically, customers receive between 3-10 designs, meaning that you definitely get a good cross-section of work to assess before moving onto your final selection.
DesignBro appoints a client manager for each project. This is useful if you don’t have a lot of experience in working with a designer. The Client Manager is your project manager, he works with you to achieve a better result from your shortlist of designers. This approach is not dissimilar to the High Street agency approach with a dedicated account manager.
DesignBro was founded in 2016. Their business philosophy is one of quality, not quantity. The company remains privately owned with founder Christiaan Huynen and Pieter-Jan Hoogendijk both active in the business.
Communication with DesignBro is via their own chat platform on either mobile or a desktop computer.
