We are a team of entrepreneurs from diverse industries. We are continuously looking for ways to improve and simplify life, saving time on tedious processes so that we gain more time for the things we actually want to achieve. DesignerHire is just one of our developments, but it's a pretty useful one!
This website was started as a solution to a problem our team continued to face in our own pursuits. As a group of entrepreneurs we found ourselves frequently frustrated by the difficulty of finding the right freelancer--and freelance designer in particular. We came from different backgrounds, so hiring a designer, with specific skills we did not have, was tough enough. But finding the right platform to do so was, well, frankly, a waste of time! We would recommend the websites we found to one another, but each of us had different needs, so each subsequent person would end up having to re-do the research.
We decided that if it was causing us this much trouble, there were probably other people out there encountering the same frustrations. So we created DesignerHire. The platform started with a list of the different websites we had used, and evolved to include a ranking system, algorithm, and finally an online quiz. We hope that these features will save you time.
Right now the platform is completely free, but we have ideas for how to monetize it-- we are entrepreneurs after all! With the right funding stream we hope to keep it free for you and all the users to come.
