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

In Penji the basic “Pro” plan on Penji is just $399 per month. However, you only get 2 account users and 1 designer per project. Website and app design, infographics, and custom illustrations are only available on the Team plan and higher. The Team plan is $499 per month and allows up to 5 users. Finally, there’s the Agency plan, which is best suited to agencies, of course. It’s $899 per month and gets you 2 designers per project/day.

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

Penji’s services include an agency plan, that allows you to work on ongoing projects for one set fee a month. Their logo design pricing starts at $399 and while you do have a money-back guarantee, you only qualify if you have less than 50 entries submitted to your contest. In addition, you will be working with only one creative on your project.

Hatchwise contests start at $89 and also include a money-back guarantee- if you have less than 30 designs submitted to your contest. In addition, they do not limit the number of creatives that your contest is open to, allowing you to see multiple concepts come in from many creatives. 

If you have an agency and need ongoing work done on a daily basis, then Penji may be the best option for you. If you are looking to start a project and see multiple concepts come in from multiple creatives, all for an affordable cost, then Hatchwise should be 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!
