48hourslogo is a popular online logo design contest website. By hosting a design contest, you can have anything from a custom logo, websites, or even t-shirt or company brochures designed by a group of designers. At the end of the contest, you simply pick the best design, and pay the winning designer the prize you set at the beginning of the contest.
Design contest is great if you need lots of design options to choose from. But what if you need something quite simply and prefer to work 1on1 with a designer? This is where the new “Hourly Project” format become useful. In this case, you can simply browse more than 5000 designer portfolios and find the designer you want. Or, you can simply click on a keyword to search for designers offering the service that you are looking for.
Each designer have an “hourly rate” displayed on the profile page to give you the idea of cost. Once you find a designer you like, you can send in a work request and chat directly with the designer about the details of your project. Once you reach an agreement, deposit your project payment and your designer goes to work. When the project is done, your designer will upload the files for you do download, and your final confirmation will release your project payment.
