The online graphic design marketplace 99designs has launched an Irish version of its website at 99designs.ie.

99designs allows businesses and individuals to source graphic design work by launching a ‘design contest’ to the community of 250,000 graphic designers from 192 countries.

Those seeking graphic design work can also work on one-to-one projects with individual designers. Companies can also buy design templates from 99designs’ ready-made logo store.

“Ireland’s startup scene is among the fastest-growing in Europe and, coupled with recent government incentives geared toward getting more small businesses online, there is a tremendous demand for affordable quality design work,” says Eva Missling, general manager of Europe for 99designs.

European customers account for over 15 percent of design contests on 99designs. Globally, 99designs has hosted more than 260,000 graphic design contests for startups, small businesses and other firms worldwide, since its founding in 2008. In the same period, the company has paid out more than €44 million to its global community of more than 250,000 graphic designers.

Earlier this month, 99designs launched Swiftly, a first-of-its-kind, flat-fee service for small design tasks.
