DesignCrowd is a marketplace rather than a web design provider - you can hire all sorts of designers whether you're after business cards, social media posts, a new logo or a completely new website. There are a lot of choices, with just over one million designers for hire on the site and 436,000 projects completed so far.

Hiring a designer is simple - but you have several options. Launching a competition means you submit a brief and then invite professionals to bid for the project (although this works much better for a one-off design!).

For a larger website design job, you're more likely to either pick a designer you love or ask DesignCrowd to select the freelancer they think is best suited to your requirements. (NB, they won't be the cheapest, but will usually be the highest rated!).


Prices are variable and depend on the level of web designer you choose and how quickly you need your web design project completed.

Example costs are as follows:

  • Posting a web design project: up to £112 (non-refundable)
  • Transaction fees of 4% (non-refundable)
  • Project management fee for projects worth £175 or more: 20%

Project upgrades are non-refundable and include extra add-ons, such as requesting a faster turnaround or having a new logo. The average cost for a web design project on DesignCrowd is between £50 and £700, from having one page redesigned to having several new pages.

Key Feature

Pick and choose from an extensive database of web design freelancers, or run a design competition to pick your preferred option.


DesignCrowd is a comprehensive design platform, so you can choose to commission the marketplace to provide full project management for bigger tasks or select an individual freelancer for a one-off job.

Web Design Usability

DesignCrowd isn't a web design platform where you need to use DIY tools or templates - you're hiring a professional designer to do the legwork for you! The positive is that you can browse portfolios, set a price limit, and choose from numerous variables when you post your new project.

The downside is that quality can vary, from excellent web designers with impressive catalogues of work to newbies. It's worth looking through the options carefully and setting a realistic budget!


DesignCrowd is a fantastic web design option if you're short on time or design expertise and want to outsource your web design. The money-back guarantee and DesignCrowd quality controls ensure each buyer gets a good result. However, your best option is to hire a top-rated freelancer (which is still usually very good value for money!).
