With each of our plans you’ll work with a dedicated UK-based graphic designer who has at least three years experience creating spectacular designs. You’ll be able to submit as many design requests as you need, and we’ll always try to complete the task within our average of one business day depending on the complexity of your request. Our goal is to connect each client with a graphic designer who can be communicated with like one of your own internal team members. Through great communication, our designers can get to know your brand and ensure each and every piece of design will live up to your expectations. Don’t worry though – if you feel like you’d like a change to any design, each plan comes with unlimited revisions.

What Our Customers Say

Customer experience is our number one priority. Here's what some of our clients have to say about us

What is UI design?

What is UI design?

People often feel overwhelmed when considering user interface design, as it can feel like a lot to try and get to grips with. Ultimately, user interface design is a specialisation of web design, and the user interface (UI) is an important component in a software product. Successful designs will use a combination of features such as impressive visual elements like icons, buttons, typography, animations and a good layout, as well as incorporating usability best practices to improve user experiences on the application, websites, or other digital platforms. 

Most designers and developers will use interface design principles, or heuristics, as a guide to inform their design decisions when faced with the task of creating user interface designs, increasing their chances of success when designing UI. These principles often include giving users a variety of options, thus giving them a sense of control through interactive elements. Popular rules designers will also follow include maintaining consistency across the online space and making interaction with products unproblematic and enjoyable for users with responsive design. 

 

How can we help you?

How can we help you?

Brands that use successful UI design methods include Google, Apple, and Adobe, which are all great examples. When designed correctly, users should barely even notice user interface designs. When platforms have problematic functionality, poor usability and poor visual design, such as unnecessary elements, this will bring the user attention to the UI, but for all the wrong reasons. 

Here at Design Cloud, we’re committed to creating enjoyable digital experiences. Our user interface designers use all the best practices and the best design technology to create visual experiences your users will love. From themed website landing pages, branded error messages and everything in between – there’s not much our designers can’t do here at Design Cloud. If you’re unsure, just ask!

How does Design Cloud work?

How does Design Cloud work?

The main thing we’ll need from you before we start designing the user interface is an idea of your brand’s visual identity. We aren’t a branding agency, and so we need our customers to have an existing knowledge of their visual branding. We’ll use this information to select the best features for your user interface, keeping the branding consistent and effective throughout. If you need any inspiration or would like to take a look at our previous work, feel free to browse our portfolio.

An effective user interface design to improve your users’ experiences on your platform is achievable in just a few simple steps. The first step is to log in to the portal and submit a request to our designers. You can also do this by email if that’s an easier option. A designer will then take a look at the request for your content, and will ask any further questions, for clarity, if necessary. Your assigned designer will then get to work on creating a user interface design that your users will love, just as much as you do. Once it’s completed, the final design will be sent back to you. You’ll have the opportunity to provide feedback and can request further edits to be made.

When will I get my design back?

Our graphic designers work tirelessly to ensure you receive your design as soon as possible. We do aim to have the work completed and returned to you within 24 hours of receiving your brief, but for more complex projects that have several elements or components to consider, this isn’t always possible. Your designer will always be transparent about the time frame though, keeping you in the loop at all times. Our users can stay up-to-date on their designer’s progress by logging into your online portal and contacting them directly.

DesignCloud

Can I talk to my designer about the look I’m wanting?

Of course – you can work together with your designer to come to the best design decisions for your user interface design. It goes without saying that communication is key to any design project. Interaction with your designer is fundamental in our approach to graphics, ensuring efficiency and understanding throughout the process. and it’s what we rely on to deliver the very best graphic design services that money can buy. You can contact your designer directly throughout the entire design process, via our handy online portal.

DesignCloud

Where is my assigned graphic designer based?

Your designer will be based in the UK, as with all of our team, whilst our HQ is situated in Manchester. There’s no need to worry about language barriers or time zones when working with us, meaning communication and the design process itself couldn’t be smoother. We never outsource our work either, so your designer will always be directly employed by us with at least three years of previous commercial experience – we only hire the best in the business. 

 

 

How will my UI design be delivered?

How long does it take to get set up?

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.

What does unlimited graphic design actually mean?

As a Design Cloud subscriber, 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.

 

One thing to keep in mind – Each round of revisions is treated as a new design request and this can affect the turnaround time of other design requests you have in your queue.

 

We’re Only Human….

 

Design Cloud designers are real humans. Your designer will work through the design requests in your queue, one task at a time. Once the request at the top of your queue is complete, they will move onto the next one.

 

Need more design work faster?

 

No problem at all. It’s easy to scale your output by adding another designer to your team which will allow you to double your daily graphic design output. This can be easily done from your account dashboard or by contacting our sales team.

I have more than one business, can I use one account?

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.

Do you offer a trial?

Yes we do. We offer a 14 day risk-free trial on all of our services. If you don’t like the design work we create for you in the first 14 days, we’ll keep it and you can get a full refund, no questions asked. You can read more about how the trial works on our pricing page.

What are the turnaround times?

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.

 

DesignCloud PRO

 

One of the perks of being a Design Cloud PRO user is that you’ll get real-time communication with your designer via Slack and faster turnaround times, including same-day design delivery.

 

Even though the PRO plan turnaround time is quicker (especially for revisions), the number of design requests you’ll get delivered each day will still differ depending on the complexity of each request sent, how long you’ve been working with your designer and what else you have at the top of your design queue.

Are you outsourcing work to freelance sites or overseas?

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.

Who owns the creative work?

You own all of the design work that we create for you. Everything we do is made specifically for you and your brand. The moment we deliver the final design files to you, you have 100% ownership. We also provide you with the Adobe layered files we used to create your work in too ie: Photoshop PSD, Illustrator AI, InDesign INDD as well as in .jpg, .pdf, or .png.

 

Important information around stock images.

 

If we need to use stock images in your work, there are some important ownership/license restrictions that you need to be aware of. You can read about these here in our terms of service.

What can you design for me?

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.

Can you design my logo?

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.

Can you design my website?

Yes we can! You’ll need to be subscribed to a Design Cloud PRO or Enterprise 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

 

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're an Agency, can we use Design Cloud?

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.

I'm a freelancer, can I use Design Cloud?

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.
