Crowdsite is Europe’s leading website for crowdsourcing graphic design with over 53k professional designers and over a million designs. The concept of Crowdsourcing creative work has gained an enormous popularity in recent years. The idea of Crowdsourcing jobs is definitely a brilliant one as one can get the best designs and quality from a “crowd” of designers.
In an earlier article published on this blog titled “10 Creative Websites for Crowdsourcing Logo and Website design jobs”, I explained what Crowdsourcing is and also listed 10 awesome Crowdsourcing websites to Crowdsource your creative works such as graphic and logo designs. Check it out…
Brief history of Crowdsite
Crowdsite is a Crowdsourcing website for graphic, website, flyer, T-Shirt, logo designs and Name finding. Founded by Roel Masselink in 2009, the website has become a large Crowdsourcing website with over 30k designers.
Started in the Netherlands with ontwerpen-voor-geld.nl, the dream quickly grew to cross borders and thus Crowdsite was born in 2013. Since then more and more designers have joined this awesome Crowdsourcing website.
How to Crowdsource with Crowdsite
There are two ways you can Crowdsource on Crowdsite – Design contests and Private Projects. You can simply launch a public design contest, let the thousands of designers on Crowdsite go to work, while you get personalized professional and custom designs that suits you and then you can choose your winning design.
On Crowdsite there are three types of contest namely the;
- Guaranteed Contest
- Closed Contest
- One-on-One Contest.
The Guaranteed contest means that Crowdsite will always pay the designers whether you choose a winner or not which gives the designers the confidence and will definitely lead to more entries of higher quality.
The Closed contest will mean that only designers who are logged in to the Crowdsite can view and take part in the contest. The contest and its designs will be invisible to the search engines, only the contest title and short description will appear on the search engines.
The One-on-One contest will ensure you get more original designs as each designer’s work stays private. Designers cannot see each other’s work. You can also have a one-on-one conversation with each designer in this type of contest.
Another way you can Crowdsource with Crowdsite is by private projects. You can hire a “crowdworker” directly. That way you can work 1-on-1 with a crowdworker of your choice in a private project.
Why you should Crowdsource with Crowdsite
I know you may be wondering why Crowdsite, when there are other Crowdsourcing websites out there? There is always several of everything but not all can be crowd favorites. Crowdsite is different from other Crowdsourcing websites in lots of ways as you will see below, read on…
- Low Commission – Crowdsite has one of the lowest commissions you can find anywhere. For just 30% commission, you can host your contests unlike other Crowdsourcing sites that charge up to 45% commission rate. Check out the project pricing page.
- Best Crowdworkers – With over 30k designers, you are sure to get the best hands working on your project.
- Escrow Service – You can be sure your money is safe while you complete your project. Escrow services bring trust to the table for you and the designers.
- Money back guarantee – you are sure to get your money back if a crowdworker doesn’t deliver or does a bad job.
I hope I have given you enough reasons to consider using Crowdsite for your next big project. The next time you are stuck or need something fast, turn to crowd-sourced design with Crowdsite for its efficiency, inexpensive and fast service delivery.
If you need a design for a new project, I encourage you to give Crowdsite a try. You will most likely enjoy the joy of collaborating with designers to seeing your vision come to life.

Pretty nice review. By your words it appears Crowdsite is for bigger projects like oDesk and Freelancer are for smaller ones. I wonder how the average prices going on there and what should be the budgetary arrangement if you wish for a normal kind of designs from Crowdsite?

You can see the price page in the article for the different categories.
When sites like this are dominating Europe, the question which comes in mind is this, when are we going to have a site likes this targeting we Africans.
