The Design Contest Process

1. How it Works

Logo design contests allow you to outsource your logo design projects to multiple creatives.

While paying one set fee, you are able to see multiple logo concepts, and award one contest winner at the end of your contest duration (which can run anywhere from 48 hours to 10 days).

Logo design contests are the solution to finding your perfect new logo at a low price point, while getting the very best options to choose from. 

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

Crowdspring contests start at $299 and come with a guarantee of a minimum of 60 entries. Your contest only runs for 7 days, and at the end of which you must select your contest winner. 

Crowdspring allows you to receive a full refund of your payment within 30 days if you close your contest without a winner. This does not apply to Elite contests, however, where you waive your right to request a refund. 

Naming/tagline contests that receive over 100 entries are not eligible for refunds. 

Hatchwise logo contests start at $89 and you are guaranteed to receive a minimum of 30 designs entered in your contest from at least 5 creatives. 

If at the end of your contest submission period you don’t receive at least 30 entries, and don’t plan on awarding a contest winner let us know and you receive a full refund for your payment-no questions asked! This Money Back Guarantee applies to any of our contests, no matter what type you select.

The Final Verdict

If you wish to pay $899 you can receive the best that Crowdspring has to offer, with their top creatives working with you. Even if you choose to go the more affordable and safe (qualifying for their money-back guarantee) route, you will be looking at paying a minimum of $299 for your new design. 

If you are looking to work with a few creatives, and see a minimum of 30 entries more than Hatchwise (for over three times the price), then Crowdspring is the choice for you. 

Hatchwise contests are open to all creatives, allowing you to see a variety of concepts, including those from our top creatives, at no extra charge. Contests start at $89, and you may move your contest to the next package at any time while it is active (should you choose to). You will receive many design concepts, and if you don’t receive the guaranteed number of entries to your contest can request and receive a refund at the end of it.

If you are looking to work directly with thousands of talented creatives, have dedicated support (with no extra charge), and enjoy connecting with a community of creatives, ready to work with you and find the best way to help you grow your business, then Hatchwise is the choice for you. 

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!
