A little bit about 99designs


99designs is the world’s global creative platform that makes it easy for clients and designers to work together to create designs they love. Our mission is to champion creativity to create opportunities for people around the world. Founded in 2008, 99designs has grown from a small, online forum into a worldwide community of talented designers that is now the go-to solution for businesses, agencies, and individuals.


We bring opportunities to designers globally through design contests and direct project work, and our community of designers spans 192 countries. 


In 2020 we started 99d Studio to help businesses with more complex creative needs. 


So, what’s 99d Studio, I hear you ask? 


99d Studio is the design studio for the modern age.

We’re building a collective of highly experienced and talented Creative Directors, who are responsible for running the strategy and creative deliverables for each 99d Studio client project. 


As we gain more and more wonderful Studio clients, we’re seeking more support to ensure we develop our community and do what we do best - awesome design!
