In this article we will tell you about graphic design crowdsourcing. Creative.gd is basically a ‘graphic design contest’ platform.
It seems that ‘Crowdsourcing’ is the next big revolution in the Web 2.0 era, where work is no more limited to be outsourced to BIG IT giants only. It’s the talented crowd that is taking the lead and helping clients in fulfilling their work requirements at much lower cost.
And the platforms which are bringing ‘clients’ and ‘talented crowd’ together, to let them fulfill each other’s requirements are playing an important role in the whole scenario of Crowdsourcing. Creative.gd is one such crowdsourcing platform.
Creative.gd is basically a ‘design contest platform’ where contest holders(clients) publish a designing brief and award a cash prize to one of the designs which is finally choosen by the contest holder(client), out of all the submissions to the client. Once the winning design is selected, the winning designer is rewarded with respective cash prize and the client receives the ‘exact file'(whatever format is appropriate such as .psd) from the designer. Prize money is released to the winner through the built-in Escrow system.
The concept is very much similar to other popular Crowdsourcing platforms such as GetAFreelancer, elance or RentACoder but all these platforms specialize in ‘coding’ and ‘web development’ requirements. Designing work is either not supported or given lower preference. Creative.gd is dedicatedly meant for Graphic designers only.
Logomyway is possibly a straight competitor to Creative.gd. Creative.gd is newer(launched in 2009 itself) and will take some more time to get populated with designing fraternity and cluster of clients.
Such platforms are a great new way for designers to earn money and hence recommended for any designing freak.
