Freelancer.com, the popular online freelance job marketplace, today announced a horizontal expansion into a variety of crowdsourcing design categories. The move brings the crowdsourced design offerings on the Freelancer.com platform up to 18 different categories, including logos, websites, as well as a generic catch-all option.
The decision was made in an effort to further expand Freelancer.com’s marketplace. The 700,000 designers currently on the platform are able to bid on over 12,000 design projects each month. Greta Stojanovic, VP of Product Strategy, hopes that the move will “[strengthen the] core business and [help] build small and medium businesses that rely on outsourcing or crowdsourcing to stay competitive.” Stojanovic also expressed excitement over the increased opportunities available to both clients and members of the crowd.
Entrepreneurs and small and medium business owners can literally get just about anything designed for their businesses through a Freelancer.com design contest and we’re excited to give designers new ways to find work, by showcasing their considerable talents. With commissions starting at only 3% for gold members, ours is the most lucrative design marketplace in the world for designers. Whatever you need designed for your business, there’s a contest for you on Freelancer.com.

The Freelancer.com design contests themselves are pretty standard fare. Clients post their design requirements, available budget, provide feedback on submissions, and then choose their favorite design. You can learn more about the service, or just see what the crowd is making, on the Freelancer.com contest website.
