Designhill – An Indian Startup Disrupting the $54 Billion Graphic Design Industry
Dated: April 20, 2016
Designhill is one of the rare Indian startups that already established itself as a global player before it has even launched its services completely in India. Within its first year of full operations, this Indian startup is already counted as a major competitor to some of the bigger heavyweights of the global design freelancing industry such as 99designs, Freelancer to name a few.
Designhill.com is an online graphic design freelancing and crowdsourcing platform that allows startups, small businesses, creative and ad agencies source high quality graphic designs at affordable prices. The company clearly aims to disrupt and establish itself as a leader in the $54 billion graphic design industry.
The Gurgaon-based startup, still bootstrapped, has crossed revenues of $100,000 within six months of opening its services to businesses and breaks even at unit level on every transaction that takes place on the platform.
Designhill prides itself on its thriving community of 30,000+ graphic artists, designers, illustrators and visualizers, is celebrating a record-breaking first year that includes successful launch of several new, ground-breaking features and services that are sure to revolutionize the industry.
"We are really proud to have grown as one of the most preferred and largest graphic design platforms. We have recently launched two new services, 'White Labeling Services' and 'One-to-One Freelancing Projects', which will change the way everyone including design agencies, brand consultants, businesses, big and small source high-quality graphic designs. In fact, this marks the beginning of our transition from just being a design crowdsourcing platform to a fully-integrated solution for all graphic design related needs," said Rahul Aggarwal, co-founder, Designhill.
'White-Labeling Service', the first of the two services launched, is an innovative feature from Designhill where art directors, agencies, project managers, marketers and brand consultants can discreetly white label unique and creative designs for their clients, without giving away that the work has been sourced from Designhill.
This feature is a big step for Designhill as it would allow them to service a large part of the graphic design industry comprising of the traditional offline players such as creative agencies, brand consultants, ad agencies etc. with whom they would otherwise be competing with.
"Through our second new service One-to-One Projects, we aim to completely own the global online design freelancing industry. Through this service, freelance designers and business owners will be able to directly collaborate with each other, negotiate terms, exchange payments and deliverables all in one convenient location. The service will provide greater control and security of money to both," said Varun Aggarwal, co-founder, Designhill.
It is all set to be a big year for the company as it is taking a very aggressive approach towards fulfilling its goals and plans to set up operations in US and Germany.
