How do you solve design needs for your startup?
What is the best way to make a selling landing page, logo, design for social media and blog? Are you working on content marketing? How do you get new designs with consistent quality?
We are working with a freelancer designer that we found from dribble.
@zhitao_yan we have done this as well. If you want to do something quickly yourself you should check out Kittl. Just launched it: www.producthunt.com/posts/kittl
@jan_beisheim Sure, I will take a look, thanks for your product.
@zhitao_yan curious to hear your feedback on it.
If you have a lot of work and a budget, go for an in-house designer. Or You can find any reliable freelance designer who is probably new but has the designing skills to save your cost. Furthermore, you can learn those skills and do it yourself if you can.
@qudsia_ali if you quickly need to do a graphic yourself you might want to check out Kittl: www.producthunt.com/posts/kittl
You can do a partnership with any designer in exchange for some equity, this way, you will not have to pay him, and you will get consistent quality because now he has a stake in the business.
@nabeel_amir wow, never heard about such options. Are the founders willing to share in exchange? I guess it must be the designer with a NAME.
@nabeel_amir that's an interesting approach. Here is a solution to access thousands of designs made by professional designers (including commercial license) WITHOUT having to give them a stake in your business: www.producthunt.com/posts/kittl
Really depends on where are you on your startup journey and your needs. If you have already secured some funding, go for a generalist in-house designer that would cover most of your needs. The rest hire a freelancer. If not, there are many free resources on all this. So go for the mainstream tools (go for Figma rather than Sketch or Adobe Xd for example). Hope this helps :)
@fariz_hakim yeah, thanks. I tried different options. I'm curious about what others do.
@fariz_hakim if you quickly want to do something in house you might want to check out Kittl - empowers everyone to design without any graphic design skills. Just launched today: www.producthunt.com/posts/kittl
I agree - go in-house if you can afford it, but if you can't I'd recommend PAIRUX.com (completely selflessly)
