Do you need quality design work, fast? When you are growing your startup, you and your team will eventually need designs for logos, business cards, t-shirts, banners, social posts, etc. I personally recommend DesignCrowd the next time you need some design work. We used this amazing crowdsourcing platform to help us design our logo for “Trail Team 10.” Not only was it easy, but it was a great experience collaborating with creative designers around the world. We received over 100 quality designs to choose from. Check it out and let me know what you think.
