Where does Design Cloud fit in the graphic design landscape?

We’re not a market place and we’re not an agency. We’re a tech-enabled graphic design service that lets you add experienced designers to your team, for a simple flat-rate monthly fee.

We don’t outsource overseas or through a freelance network. All of our designers are based in the UK, employed directly by us and have at least 3yrs industry experience.

Our service gives you all benefits of hiring in-house – without the risk or expense – and the flexibility of traditional outsourcing, without the hassle or frustration.

Submitting requests through our platform

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll get instant access to the Design Cloud platform where you can start sending requests to your designer.

Every request you submit goes into your own personal design queue for your designer to work through on a daily basis.

Communicate via Slack if you're signed up to our PRO plan

One simple dashboard to manage requests and revisions

Let your designer know if you need to reprioritise requests

Working with your new designers

Working day-to-day with your designers is just like working with any other remote team member.

Your designer will be available every business day and will work through your requests one at a time. Once the request at the top of your queue is complete, they will be ready to start work the next one.

If your designer is on holiday, another member of our team will cover your work until they return.

We don't bill on a per user basis so your whole team can have access to work with your designers

If you're a marketing team or agency working across multiple brands you don't need a separate account for each one.

Turnaround times & revisions

Most simple requests like social media content, display ads or website banners resized for multiple platforms take around a business day to complete. Larger requests like presentations and landing pages will take a few days (depending on the complexity and the detail of your brief).

If you need to make any revision to your work, just reply to your designer with the details and they will work through your changes until it’s exactly how you want it.

All plans come with unlimited revisions

Case Study: Embryo Digital, Manchester

Embryo Digital found themselves facing a common issue that nearly all digital marketing agencies experience as they begin to scale.

Having grown by over 400% in the last 3 years, they developed a bottleneck in their design process. They had an internal team of designers focusing on websites and high-value projects, but they couldn’t keep up with the demand from their social media, client services and SEO team who were receiving daily client requests for simple day-to-day graphic design work.

Case Study: Regency Design, Godstone

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and the UK was forced into lockdown, the team at Regency adapted quickly. They designed, patented and manufactured a unique range of hand sanitiser units to support businesses who needed to follow new COVID-19 government guidelines to stay open.

Whilst Regency already had an in-house design team, the enormous spike in demand meant they urgently needed reliable graphic design support to enable them to show visual mockups to prospective clients looking to place immediate orders.
