They turned to remote talent to support the initiative: 70+ independent web designers and three program consultants to streamline communication and reduce admin overhead. The program launched 3x faster than would have been possible through traditional means.

What is the first step to hiring design and creative talent and determining the project cost?

One of the first steps in hiring any talent is to determine which skills you need for your project. You know you need help with design and creative, but what specific things are you trying to do? Upwork matches you with proven remote talent who can help you with all your design and creative needs, including: 

  • Logo design
  • Product photography

The cost of your project depends largely on your scope of work and the specific skills needed to complete your project. 

A design and creative services project includes the following:

  • Skills: Identify the design and creative services talent needed to complete the project (e.g., a designer of banner ads or a photo retoucher).
  • Project Length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project.
