99design’s journey began with a group of designers who were competing together on the Sitepoint forum to create the best designs. In 2008, that friendly competition grew into a unique design marketplace, which ultimately forged connections between tens of thousands of small businesses and a global community of designers that’s now over 950,000 members strong.
99designs exists to challenge the status quo of the traditional design process and promote a powerful relationship between designers and small businesses. By 2016, they will have helped over one million people grow their businesses through access to high-quality, affordable design.
They believe that self-expression has no borders and that everyone across the world deserves great design.
