Customers post projects on online design marketplaces…

Medium and small business owners as well as other organizations seek appealing designs for logos, websites, posters, brochures and the like. They prepare a brief outline of their requirements and expectations, which is then posted on design marketplaces such as DesignBay, 99Designs, CrowdSpring etc.

Customers look for quality at an affordable price and therefore they state the budget at the outset along with the project brief.  The online medium ensures that customers get advantage of designs from a global talent pool of designers.

Register and submit your design…

You may be formally trained or untrained, but what matters is whether you possess a creative streak and if so, do not hesitate to make a submission. Prior to that, you may send the design to your peer friends and receive their feedback.

The design brief may have restrictions like number of colours, size, software used (Photoshop or CorelDraw or any other) etc and these aspects have to be scrupulously followed. All projects attract a large number of submissions and therefore competition is intense. Yet since a large number of projects are live on these marketplaces at any time, securing work should not be too difficult for designers of creative merit.

You can also earn by contributing stock photos…

If you are a professional or amateur photographer, you can submit photos to online stock photo marketplaces. Prior to that, you may have to submit samples of your work to them so that they can evaluate your photographic abilities. Subsequently, for each download of your image by a customer, you get a fixed percentage of royalty.
