99designs launches fixed price spin-off Swiftly

swiftly logoCrowd sourcing design site 99designs is to launch a spin-off brand Swiftly which will offer the ability to have a simple design task carried out for a flat $15 fee on a one-hour turnaround.

Rather than the model used by 99designs and other sites in the crowd sourcing space such as Freelancer, the Swiftly model focuses on individual tasks, such as changing the colour on a logo or a job title change on a business card.
Professional designers are often opposed to the crowd sourcing mode, particularly when the winner is effectively decided via a contest, as they feel it devalues the profession.

According to Swiftly: “Swiftly’s team of designers have been hand picked from the 99designs team to form the launch team to ensure quality and around the clock availability.

“It’s solving that pain point of not having an inhouse design team or not having an inhouse design team that has the time to fix your business cards every time you get promoted.”
