100,000 Designers and Writers Now Work on crowdSPRING

Milestone Reinforces crowdSPRING as the Creative Capital of the World for Mass Brands and Small Businesses Looking for Innovation

CHICAGO, October 4, 2011 – crowdSPRING is proud to announce today that its creative community of designers and writers has reached 100,000. 

crowdSPRING, which is known globally as the world’s number one online marketplace for buyers and sellers of creative services, has experienced tremendous growth in the past three years with its logo design , web design , graphic design , industrial design and writing services .

“We are proud that our amazing community has helped tens of thousands of entrepreneurs, businesses, nonprofits, agencies and governments from around the world with their creative needs,” said Ross Kimbarovsky, co-founder of crowdSPRING.  “The exploding growth of our creative community guarantees that crowdSPRING will continue to innovate and provide opportunities for all businesses around the world to access talented creatives at an affordable price."

crowdSPRING, which has led the worldwide creative crowdsourcing market since its launch in 2008, has attracted designers and writers from more than 200 countries. Many of crowdSPRING’s creatives are classically trained and highly regarded professionals, while others work in a different profession and moonlight as designers or writers to fulfill a passion. Working side-by-side with highly experienced professionals, you'll find stay-at-home moms who need some adult time while the kids nap, recent college graduates looking to build a book of business or journalists who were laid off during the recession and need the money.

“The numbers don’t lie.  Buyers of creative services clearly turn to crowdSPRING as their trusted creative community not only because it is the “best of the best” but because it’s the most trusted crowdsourcing marketplace on the planet.  Through our strong commitment to our creatives and buyers, crowdSPRING has secured its place as the creative capital of the world for delivering on innovation and quality,” said Mike Samson, co-founder of crowdSPRING.

crowdSPRING offers many key benefits for buyers including fast turnaround, a smarter process, massive creative choice, ongoing feedback, revisions and messages with the creative community and protection of all intellectual property rights. Platforms like crowdSPRING specifically take the risk out of buying creative services by offering buyers choices up-front – actual designs to choose from instead of bids or proposals.
