1. Design always finds a way
Our journey began with a group of designers who were competing together on the SitePoint forum to create the best designs. In 2008, that friendly competition grew into a unique design marketplace and 99designs was born. Today, a new design is uploaded to our platform every 1.5 seconds—earning our global community of artists more than $150M to date.
2. Design doesn’t do borders
Having offices located around the world is a pretty sweet deal, but we think it’s even more amazing that any designer—from Sydney to Serbia—can succeed on our platform.
3. Design can come from anywhere. Including you.
Our customers are smart, passionate and full of great ideas. From hand-knitted wears to small-batch brewers to fantasy sports, there’s nothing we love more than watching great design help over 364,571 businesses grow.
4. Design loves a good cause
Small budgets should never stand in the way of big ideas. That’s why, every month, 99designs selects a group of not-for-profits to get great design, free.
5. Design is supposed to be fun
Between the fitness challenges, flip-cup tournaments and terrarium building, there’s always something cool happening at every 99designs location. We adore having visitors, too. Come by and say hi.
