The Design Contest Process

1. How it Works

Logo design crowdsourcing works by allowing a variety of graphic designers to upload design concepts to contests that are held by creatives. Clients pay one set fee and can see many different contest entries and choose to award one entry as the winning design at the end. Logo design contests are the solution to businesses finding the perfect logo for their company at the right time.

2. What You Get

After selecting your final design your contest winner will upload your final artwork directly to your Hatchwise account for easy download. You will receive the complete editable files and the rights to your new design, allowing you to make any future changes you wish to your new design. 

Hatchwise is dedicated to enabling you to find the perfect creatives resources for your businesses and making that process as simple, affordable, and straightforward as it can be. With dedicated, personalized support, no hidden fees, and a massive community of creative talent, your business receives the attention and care that it needs to thrive.

3. What It Costs

48hourslogo logo design contests start at $129 for their ‘Budget’ package and guaranteed a minimum of 20 designs. For the ‘Standard’ package, you receive 40 designs and pay $199 with a 3-day duration.

Hatchwise logo design contests start at $89 and you’re guaranteed to receive a minimum of 30 design entries submitted to your contest from at least 5 creatives.

I was originally going to use 99designs and your service was recommended to me by a friend who had used your site before so I gave it a shot and it lived up to everything he said. I was connected with 25 original designs and found one that was exactly what I had envisioned! I will be recommending HatchWise to all my friends!

I was a little apprehensive since my experience with 99designs in the past has been excellent and you're services were much cheaper but I was thrilled with the result.

Hatchwise was great to work with! I used 99Designs a few months ago for a different company I own and I am far more satisfied with the options I received with the Hatchwise designers, plus the Hatchwise price was much lower. I'll definitely recommend Hatchwise to anyone I know looking for a logo!
