Freeup connects graphic designers with a variety of jobs. You might be enlisted to make logos, brand materials, create infographics and more. The site is particular about who can work there, screening freelancers heavily. But, if you get accepted, you’ll find plenty of jobs and the work is well paid.
Freelancer earnings are based on skill levels. Entry-level positions (generally reserved for people outside of the U.S.) pay $5 to $10; Mid-Level professionals charge $10 to $30 and experts can charge $30 and up. The site takes a 15% commission. Learn more about Freeup by reading our full review.
Awesomic enlists freelance graphic designers to work on a variety of projects, ranging from logo and app design to website user experience. Unlike other freelance platforms, Awesomic promises to keep designers busy and provide a monthly stipend that works much like a salary.
The site uses artificial intelligence to match designers to clients, based on what the clients need and the designers specific skills. But, both designers and clients have the ability to switch if they’re not happy with the match. Designers communicate with their clients on a daily basis.
Designers do not have to hail from the U.S., however. But they need good English language skills to properly communicate with clients and the Awesomic team. Pay varies with experience, but Glassdoor estimates it’s in the $58,000 annual range. Learn more about Awesomic by reading our review here.
Skyword connects Fortune 1000 clients with content creators and graphic designers, who produce blog posts, infographics and corporate videos. The client sets the rate of pay, which can be accepted or rejected by the freelancer. Skyword charges the client, not the freelancer, a fee for the matchmaking service. Freelancers say that the work is not constant, but is generally well-compensated. Learn more about Skyword by reading our full review.
