UPDATE: It appears Designer Task is out of business. Please consider one of these alternatives or see below.
DesignerTask.com is a graphic design company with a team of designers all over the globe ready to fulfill single or on-going graphic design requests. The company headquarters are in Miami, FL.
The company started up in the spring of 2016, so they are a relative newcomer to this industry.

The company handles one-time design orders such as a logo’s, ebook covers, or design work on an image. They are also happy to handle larger, on-going projects such as designing all the branding for a new company or handling the design work on a website.
The company’s head office is in Miami, FL. They hire their virtual graphic designers all over the world. The company is run by a digital agency called Scale. Their target customers are entrepreneurs or business owners that either lack the necessary design skills to do their own work or just don’t have the time.
You can submit any graphic design task you can think of. Some of their more common requests include:
- Ebook covers
- Blog post headers
- Flyers and posters
- Social media graphics
- T-shirt designs
- Letter heads
- And more
There is a 4-part process in place when placing an order.
First, you chose the type of plan you want to sign up for depending on the number of design tasks you will be ordering. Then you submit your request through their website and the jobs will be picked up by their available graphic designers.
Your design is delivered back to you as per the timeframe on your pricing plan. You have the opportunity to check the work and respond with any comments or revisions direct to the designer who completed the work.
When you are happy you click “approve”, then you can submit the next task if you have one.
Plans and Pricing
DesignerTask have three different pricing plans. None of their plans tie you in with contracts so you can cancel at any time, and all their work comes with a 7-day money back guarantee.
Their plans are as follows:
Single Task – This is costed at $29 per task. You have unlimited revisions and a 24-hour turnaround on your order.
Starter – This package costs $249 per month and allows you to make unlimited task requests. You can only have one task open at any time though, and there is a 24-hour turnaround. So, worst case scenario would be one task completed per day.
Premium – This package costs $379 per month. The main difference when compared to the Starter package being you’re able to two tasks open at the same time. You can stack tasks ahead of time however, this ensures you keep a steady flow of work in progress.
Looking at these monthly packages on a daily rate they work out at around $8 and $12 a day respectively. Being able to request two design tasks per 24 hours with the Premium package means you’re paying $6 per task, per day.
For ongoing design work, the two competitors that come to mind are Design Pickle and Undullify. Design Pickle is similarly priced, while Undullify is the more affordable of the “subscription model” options. (Though you won’t necessarily be assigned a dedicated designer on their lower price tier.)
For one-off design tasks, there’s always Fiverr if you can find a solid provider. Otherwise, the crowdsourcing marketplaces like 99designs or DesignCrowd might be worth a look if you’re in need of really high impact, highly visible design.
