The goal is to bring customers and designers together in one place, and for those designers to provide customers with “Artwork” custom design concepts to choose from

Getting a design on Artwork CS is as easy as A-B-C. Here is how it works:

Step 1: Select a Service. Start your contest by choosing a design service that you need.

Step 2: Name a Price. There is a minimum price for every design service, but you can choose the amount you’d like to pay based on how many design concepts you’d like to receive (the more you spend, the more designs you will receive). You can also choose a package from our list and customize it as per your needs.

Step 3: Write a Creative Brief. There are a few questions that you will need to answer before designers can get started. The creative brief is essential to designers understanding your needs. This ensures that they have what they need to create unique designs for you.

Step 4: Give Feedback. As soon as you submit the creative brief, the contest begins for the designers. They compete by submitting design concepts for you to choose from. Your feedback on these concepts will help guide the designers in the right direction and get you exactly what you are looking for.

Although we encourage our designers to send an unlimited number of design concepts, the use of the following strategy can help you increase the number of projects for your contest:

1. Guarantee your contest. This means that you are guaranteeing that you will choose a winning design at the end of the contest. This will assure designers that they are not wasting time with drafts. A guaranteed contest also attracts more designers and increases the amount of design drafts.

2. Write a detailed creative summary. The purpose of your creative summary is to provide information for the designers, so that they understand their ideas and what they are looking for in their drafts. By giving more details, designers can visualize their idea more clearly and be more aligned with their vision.

3. Give your opinion and participate. Participating in your contest by providing constructive feedback helps guide the designers. They will provide better quality drafts that meet your specifications.

4. Increase the prize money. The greater the amount you invest, the more designers will be interested in competing in your contest. In the end, there will be more sent concepts for you to choose.

5. Invite the designers to participate. To attract more qualified designers, you can browse through our designers and their previous works. By reviewing their profiles and portfolios, you can have an idea of ​​their design style, which can better match what you are looking for. You can invite these designers to participate in your contest.
