We know that unlimited graphic design sounds too good to be true. Here are some frequently asked questions that we get. If you have more, book a demo and we'll walk you through how everything works.
Once you’ve completed sign-up, you’ll receive your account log-in details and you’ll be able to start submitting design requests instantly through the app or via email. It typically it takes around 24hrs for us to get you set up with your designer and to get them working on your requests.
Yes you can. All of our subscription plans come with unlimited brands. This means that you can use one subscription to submit design work for multiple businesses that you may own.
Just keep in mind that your designer will only work on one active request at a time from your queue.
As a rough average, Design Cloud standard users will get most design requests delivered back to them the following business day.
Turnaround times on design requests will vary and generally depend on three factors:
1. How long you and your designer have been working together.
If you’ve been working with your designer for some time, you’ll have a great workflow in place, your designer will fully understand your brand, visual identity and your preferred style. This will speed up turnaround time significantly. If you are new to Design Cloud and you’re submitting your first task with your new designer, you’ll more than likely receive your first design back in around 1-2 business days.
2. How complex the design request is.
For example, a simple social media graphic with simple text overlayed can be very quick to turnaround, whereas something like a multi-page powerpoint presentation or detailed corporate brochure will have a lot of layers that make up the design and will take significantly longer to produce.Our customer experience team review all requests the moment they come through to assess complexity. If there’s a complex request we think will take longer than one business day to get back to you, we’ll reach out and let you know.
3. How many requests you have in your design queue.
Your designer will work on one request at a time. If you approve the request at the top of your queue when your designer sends it back to you, we’ll jump straight onto the next one. If you delay getting back to us about revisions and sign off, this will delay the rest of your design requests being worked on.
Absolutely not. We don’t outsource work overseas and we don’t use freelance sites or market places. All of our designers are in-house at our office in central Manchester. The digital capital of the north.
If you have a clear brief or idea for your logo design including specific fonts, colours or look, sure – We can bring your idea to life and design your logo as you described it.
We are not a branding agency. If you don’t know what you want your logo to look like and you need help to develop a brand/logo/name from scratch, then we will happily put you in touch with one of award-winning branding agency partners.
Yes we can! You’ll need to be subscribed to our PRO plan to work on web design. We’ll need your website copy already written and ready to go and you’ll need to provide us with a clear page by page brief and send us any licensed photos you want to use too.
Each website page will be designed in three standard screen sizes. Desktop, Mobile, Tablet. Each page you want us to design for your site will need to be submitted as a new request.
Web development is not included in any of our subscription plans. We can provide you with a separate price for the development, refer you to one of our web development agency partners or you can use the designs we produce for you and work with your existing developer to build it.
We can design almost anything for you so long as you can explain or show us what it is you want to create.
Our design scope is broad, but firmly set in graphic design (at the moment) if you’re looking for animated 3D video, CAD design, SEO, copywriting or a sandwich. We’re not going to be able to help you…
However, we work with multiple award-winning agencies across all areas of digital and we would be to introduce you. We can also recommend some amazing sandwich shops in Manchester too. (We love sandwiches) Here’s our official design scope. If there’s something we’ve not mentioned on the list, get in touch and we’ll let you know if it can be done.
Absolutely. We love working with agencies and would love to talk to you about how we can help you.
We work particularly well with marketing agencies who are currently outsourcing their design work to freelancers, branding agencies who want to free up their lead designers from small design tasks that create a bottleneck and any agency using non-designers to create their graphics for their own social media channels. (There’s a lot of them about)We’re not here to replace your existing designers, we’re here to offer an affordable, low risk solution to help you design at scale.
Yes! We love helping freelancers scale up their design output.If you have a large project that requires a heavy amount of small graphic design tasks, you can focus on the larger areas of the project and we can help you work through the small stuff and reduce the time you spend designing until the twilight hours trying to meet deadlines.
When it comes to social media, eye-catching design can make or break your campaigns. Yet so many agencies and in-house teams don’t utilise graphic design when it comes to your social marketing efforts.
Your social media experts are just that, social media experts, so it’s unfair to assume they can create the designs you really need to make a splash on social.
That’s where we come in, supporting your social media and marketing teams to give you the best chance at success online, and letting them get back to doing their job – making social work for you.
Design Cloud frees up the time of your lead designers so that they can do the more important work, while we do all the little things that take up their time and slow your productivity – at a fraction of the price it would cost to hire another designer!
Our service helps save time and improve productivity for in-house design teams while giving your company the best possible value.

Navigating the world of design freelancers is never an easy journey – finding someone you click with and who understands what you need, getting your designs on time and to the high standard your clients expect, surprise payments that you didn’t agree on, unprofessional behavior and more are all perils of working with freelancers.
At Design Cloud, we’ll handle all of this for you. Our team of UK based designers are all employed by us, and we’ll liaise with them on your behalf, taking the stress out of working with designers.
Our service is perfect for marketing agencies as no matter what your clients want, our unlimited graphic design model means that you’ll have the capacity to ensure all your clients get what they need in any given month.
When it’s just you, you have the freedom to make your own schedules, work on your own time and create amazing campaigns, without restriction. However, for larger projects, Design Cloud can take some of the pressure off, and give you the time you need to create the high-quality products and ideas you’re known for.
Our team can help to support you across a variety of projects, and with unlimited free revisions, you can be sure that you’ll get a product that represents you and perfectly mirrors your creative flair.
It’s a simple concept that removes the typical headaches of hourly billing and searching for graphic designers to work with. Our unlimited graphic design service lets you pay a fixed monthly and work with an experienced designer every business day.
You can make an unlimited number of design requests, an unlimited number of revisions too. The pricing stays the same on a per designer, per month basis.
The concept of unlimited graphic design could be compared to unlimited home internet.
When you sign up for a package, you pay a fixed monthly fee and in return, you have access to use the service without any additional charges regardless of your usage.
However, there are some limitations when it comes to bandwidth and speed.
Most households with average internet usage, may not experience limitations or slow speeds as the number of users on the network is low.
On the other hand, households that have multiple device users accessing the same connection simultaneously will experience slower speeds due to their current package not having enough bandwidth.
To fix this bottleneck and increase the internet speed so that everyone connected has a consistent experience, all you need to do is move to a plan that offers more bandwidth.
Our unlimited graphic design service works in a very similar way.
When you sign up with a single subscription, you have access to work with 1 designer from our team. Think of this as a measure of bandwidth.
Most businesses who need help with day-to-day graphic design work are not likely to experience many bottlenecks (depending on the complexity of their work) as 1 graphic designer provides enough bandwidth to complete their work in the timeframe needed.
If they decide to add more users to their account and their workload increases, 1 designer may no longer give them enough bandwidth.
The simple fix is to add additional designers to their plan so that there can be more requests being worked on simultaneously - this gives all account users a consistent experience and ensures that deadlines for multiple requests can still be met.
Ultimately, our unlimited graphic design service is not a magical piece of technology that can produce 10000 graphics in an hour (surprise surprise). Our service is delivered by humans and of course, there is a limitation on how much 1 designer can produce across the course of the month. This is typically determined by the complexity of a request and how long you have been working with your designer.
As a Design Cloud customer, there is no limitation to the number of design requests you can submit and there is no limitation on the number of revisions you can ask for either.
You will not be charged a penny extra for submitting a large number of requests or making a large number of revisions.

Any business that needs help with ongoing graphic design work can benefit from using our graphic design subscription service.
Our client base is incredibly varied and spans multiple industries. We work with all sorts of different size teams from small agencies of 1 or 2 people, right the way to large enterprise marketing teams of 3000 plus.
Our unlimited graphic design service works in the same way regardless of business type or size. The pricing for large teams is the same on a per designer basis as it is for sole traders.
If you need to work with graphic designers on an ongoing basis, you are a perfect fit for our unlimited graphic design service. Book or watch a demo to learn more about how it works.
There are many benefits to signing up for our unlimited graphic design service. Here are just a handful of the three core things that can improve business and operational performance.
Hiring graphic designers can be a lengthy process. According to Glassdoor research, the average length of the job interview process in the UK is 27.5 days. This is a long time to wait if you just want a quick social media image designing for tomorrow.
Sourcing freelancers can also be challenging from a time perspective. You can spend days or even weeks scouring market places to find the right designer to work with. You may find one eventually only to realise that they are either not quite what you are looking for or their availability is not always consistent.
With our unlimited graphic design service, you don’t need to worry about searching for designers. You can sign up and start working with an experienced designer from our team in under a business day.
We’ve already taken care of the lengthy interview process and search for experienced designers. The designers on our team all have a minimum of 3yrs, full time industry experience prior to joining us. Some have come from working at agencies, others are from in-house design roles.
To learn more about how you can benefit from one of our graphic design subscription plans, book a demo and we’ll walk you through it.
Typically when working with freelance designers pricing is charged between £20-£50 per hour or on a day rate of £200-£300. Freelancers are great for one off or project based work, can get costly when projects take longer than expected or when you need more than 1 freelance designer to work with.
If you choose to work with a traditional design agency, pricing can range from £50-£100 per hour. This is obviously not sustainable for most businesses who need simple day-to-day design work.
Hiring in-house is another option, but with the average UK designer salary being around £27,000 (including London) the cost of a full time designer can soon get out of hand when you start to consider Employers NI and pension contributions - not to mention the cost of Apple computers and software tools.
With our unlimited graphic design service, the pricing is fixed on a per designer, per month basis and starts at just £549pm – no PAYE, HR costs or software tools to worry about.
This gives you a totally predictable cost for your graphic design work. Learn more about how our pricing works here.
One of the most unique things about our unlimited graphic design service is the ability to build an outsourced design team, quickly.
Many of our customers work with multiple designers from our team to help with increased workloads or actually replace the resource of a full time designer completely.
You can scale your design team up or down depending on your requirements and add in additional designers just for 1 month if you need to.
If you're looking build a team of designers, book a demo and we'll explain how it works.
Managing multiple designers for complex or large workloads is historically tricky - especially if you are working with multiple freelancers.
With Design Cloud, everything is managed all in one place through our simple software platform. All you need to do is load your requests into the system and we'll take care of the rest.
We don't charge on a per user basis so your whole team can have access to work with your designers as and when they need to.

Most design subscription services provide a range of different
Not really - but we can support it in some cases - Our unlimited graphic design services was created to help businesses that have the requirement for consistent design work on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
When you sign up, you are matched with an experienced graphic designer from our team who you will work with on an ongoing basis. We do this so that over time you build a working relationship with your designer who gets to know you and your brand.
If you only want to sign up for 1 month, you'll not truly experience the magic of building a relationship with a designer who in time will essentially become a valued member of your team.
If you only have a small, sporadic need for graphic design work, we suggest you use online platforms like Fiverr or Upwork to hire a freelancer.
If you need support on an ongoing basis, our unlimited graphic design service could be the perfect fit. Book a demo today and we'll show you why.
Typically, traditional design agencies bill on an hourly basis or by project. A regular agency set up usually consists of account managers.
Design Cloud works differently to this. We don't put an account manager between you and your designer, you deal directly with them through our platform or Slack. This speeds up the process of getting work done dramatically.
You might have already tried an unlimited graphic design service from the US but don’t want to deal with a designer in another timezone. We get it, and that’s why Design Cloud was created specifically for UK businesses like yours.
Design Cloud is the only graphic design subscription service of its kind in the UK. Our unlimited graphic design model works differently from all others around the world.
Typically, other unlimited graphic design services outsource their design work through freelance networks in the Philippines, Mexico and Indonesia amongst others. Whilst there are some incredibly talented designers in these countries, timezone differences make it difficult for UK businesses to create work in sync with deadlines and UK business hours.
We don’t outsource any work to freelancers in the UK or overseas. All of our team (including designers and operations) are based in the UK (predominantly Manchester) and are employed full-time on our payroll.
This has many benefits
