Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Design Pickle designers deliver ad creative variants, organic social media content builds, and static graphics in a fairly timely fashion. They're responsible for template development, batch creatives, and one-off posts of every format imaginable. Since we have other designers too, we use them to extend our capacity, not replace the function altogether. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We like the ease of communication with Design Pickle. We have a shared Slack workspace/channel that makes nitty gritty requests and edits easy. We also enjoy the intuitive request form and the ability to prioritize the backlog. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It can sometimes feel like when we have fewer requests in the backlog they're slower to deliver, not faster. The turnaround time for simple deliverables can seem long, other times it's lightning fast. We've also turned over dedicated designers 3 times. We had a really strong relationship with our second designer and loved her work, but she was moved to a new position. Cycling creatives on an account can be a good thing, but our work is so specialized we valued having a designer on our team that could deliver great work with minimal direction. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Your output is only as good as your output (though sometimes, a little better). For best results make detailed briefs, provide examples, and be clear on priorities. Add Design Pickle to Slack (if you can) and like any service remember that you're working with a human. The best time to start using Design Pickle is before you NEED them. We use Design Pickle in conjunction with other in-house and freelance designers that have their own strengths and specialties, and would recommend a similar structure for others. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

In the past we've found our in-house creatives burnt out quickly on repetitive tasks like ad variations with different colors. Or working on clients with unsexy messaging/products. But welcome to digital marketing! Now, we use DP to fill an important role on our content team at an affordable rate. Sometimes they lead the creative direction. Most times they work with our working files and existing assets. Both are important and helpful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I mostly do blog images as I'm a content marketing manager. We have redesigned our blog's look and feel with the help of Design Pickle. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

My designer, Diego. He is so nice, friendly, and crazy fast! The quality is always there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how their customer service people always keep asking me if there's anything wrong or if Diego is doing a good enough job. Seems a little tattle-telly to me. We're not in grade school, I'll let you know if there's a problem. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Not having a reliable designer. I know I can always count on Diego to help me out. I love how our new blog looks. Now that we're adding custom images to our customer's blog posts, we're adding more value which is helping us bring in more business. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

We currently use Design Pickle for social media and some general business graphic design. We've found it's best to use them to complete designs based on templates, but expect to have to go through multiple revisions for most projects that are original or more than one item. You can set up your brands, defining your colors, fonts, and brand assets.

Once you've set up your profiles and worked your designer into your workflow, it's easy to manage between their dashboard and Slack. Managing our queue submitting requests, sharing files, asking for revisions, and approving and downloading your designs are made easy using both of these tools.

With Premium, our designer stays in regular contact with us so that we can check on the status of tasks and answer any questions quickly.

We use the premium service, so they complete multiple designs per day more often. However, it's still not a dedicated designer, so it definitely doesn't replace having a talented in-house designer working daily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We are able to communicate with our designer via Slack, so we can answer any immediate questions easily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The designer has multiple clients, so it's not a dedicated service and sometimes that leads to delays in delivery. We have noticed some days where they are busy and rushing through assignments, which can affect quality, but revisions can usually be managed easily. This and the need for revisions make it a less -effective service for same-day delivery, so plan accordingly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Plan tasks ahead of time and give well-rounded task briefs for your designer.

Monitor progress and stay on top of designer communications, revisions, and design delivery Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to complete more designs per week and are able to produce more content as a result. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Overall branding and social media asset creation for our startup. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Always available communication, unlimited revision, felt like a member of the team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Design quality overall could only be taken so far. Sometimes felt like we were burning time when I didn’t have anything to assign and reverse our designer sometimes had other clients to attend to. Explains the cheaper price but not communicated during sign up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Most of the project Graphic design work and social media content Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I think the things that I like best about Design Pickle are that I it has made have graphics created a breeze. I really do love the fact that the designers always make sure that a project is done by the end of the night weather or not it is completely done or not. They will leave spots blank and let you know what they need. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think the things that I dislike about design pickle are that I would like a couple more projects able to be done at night. I am very curious about the pro version as well. I do believe if I was able to get the full package it would make it better. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Make sure that you are using loom video to help you with explaining everything to your designer whenever you send them a screen recording. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

I think that the biggest huge benefit for using Design pickle is that they will do the project to the best of their ability no matter if they need more info or not. They leave spots blank or just create what they think is best! That is hard to come by. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I am now a lone marketer for my very small team of about 12 people. Design Pickle, and my designer Julius, help me complete my projects as if I had several marketers to help me do it! I've been using the service for about 2 years now and don't know how I would do it all without my dedicated designer and the resources they provide. I have to say, the quality has really improved since I began since our subscription not only includes a Getty Images subscription but also one to Adobe Stock which has amazing, high-quality images, videos, etc. I would definitely recommend this service to anyone who feels like they need an extra hand...or ten. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Access to resources (Getty Images/Adobe Stock). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I would prefer to get projects back in the same working day, however, I've learned to manage my time and projects better because of this. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Plan ahead and be as comprehensive and clear as possible and you will get great results! This works especially well if someone with a design background manages the account and designer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

We have a very tight budget so we don't always have the option to hire a freelancer or purchase photos or videos whenever we need one. This service really helps us act as a much larger team then if we were to not have access to the resources they provide. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I needed some help with some overflow design for a product launch. My in-house design team didn't have enough capacity due to the timelines we were given. I was under extreme pressure to outsource design, and I had significant reservations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Speed - my designer is a ROCKSTAR, producing several designs a day

Quality - my designer has a great eye for quality design

Flexibility - I can load the queue up with products I need designed and move them around, as needed if our priorities change. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't really have any major dislikes. Slack is sometimes a bit much with all of the Slackbot notifications and such, but I can easily ignore that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Short term (well, relatively speaking) boost in design capacity without having to hire/train. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Although I love finding images and doing a layout, they are so much better and quicker at it than I am. I can send content and an idea and they quickly turn it into a beautiful creation Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Teamed up with Design Pickle to redesign my logo, create a new website, and rebrand the associated FB pages. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

They made the process painless and simple. The creative folks were easily accessible. And the communication process worked very well, despite my hectic schedule. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only problem that I had was due to my inexperience with truly professional designers, and not an issue with any part of the Design Pickle service. I'm not familiar with the terminology or different programs / file types used in the design industry. It took a while to educate me so that we could communicate using the same terms. Once I was up to speed, we were zooming along like a SpaceX rocket. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Design Pickle was one of the best investments I've made in 2020. Everyone and every step of the process was a pleasure and I will absolutely be making use of them again for future products. I'm a HUGE fan and cannot sing their praises loud enough to do them justice. Make the leap and their net will appear! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Visual design is not a tool on my utility belt so I needed to find a partner that could help take my ideas and make them a reality. Wish I had found Design Pickle sooner! In comparison to my first attempt, I saved money and time and had a MUCH better product. And the process was infinitely better! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

After years of using a team of dedicated freelancers, we decided to test using Design Pickle. 6 months later - total gamechanger.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Focus on the content and what you want within your design. Be clear with your branding, it helps if you have a branding guide and be clear on how you want the design. In the majority of cases I need to ask for a review of the design due to my lack of clarity of what I want. Designs are fantastic and quick Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I am solving the assets problem, getting them done and out there. The benefits are that I can now focus on the content, not the design Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

We hired Design Pickle for approximately 6 months or so while we were in-between marketing staff with design skills. They helped design brochures, core values, social media posts, swag items, making one-color logos...etc. They were friendly, so understanding when we asked for any changes (and I'm pretty picky), upbeat and creative, almost seeming like they wanted you to give them projects which was a nice change to many vendors who discourage utilizing unlimited or space out your projects, and they were extremely fast - usually getting designs (even big projects) back to us within days.

But what I most wanted to mention was their stance during covid. We had actually already hired a marketer by then so had cancelled our subscription. Yet Design Pickle notified all prior customers that they knew how hard covid was on businesses so they were offering a free month of design services, no questions asked. And then they sent out worksheets and themed coloring pages throughout the summer which some of our staff members printed out to help occupy their unexpectedly-at-home young kids. Thank you, Design Pickle. Your true colors were evidenced during covid, and it was a very bright green :). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Quick turnaround; having unlimited projects; having unlimited revisions Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

You do need to come with your own ideas, so it's great for people like me who know what they want but not how to design it; it would be harder for folks who don't know what they want and just need "something" designed Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

If you need design work most months and don't have a designer on staff, it's a great deal Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to have a professional work on all our designs without being nickled-and-dimed per project Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

My designer, Paula, went above and beyond recently to help me with a design. I was out of the office and did not have access to a computer. From my Slack app on my iPhone I was able to communicate with my designer who helped to send me an urgent revision to a design which needed to go to the printers by a strict deadline!

What do you like best?

I love the Slack integration fro Pro designers - the real time communication is invaluable for me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I dislike the fact that my designers are in a totally different timezone to me in the UK. This makes it hard to communicate out of hours, as it is late evening when they are in their full flow! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

We need a wide variety of graphics for our fundraising programs. One project was to design three Christmas scenes to be used for fundraising. Another has been to design process graphics for fundraising, background custom slides for PowerPoint, custom blog post headers for two businesses, and a lot of Facebook graphics. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I can submit a rough concept, maybe a couple of examples that I like, and get back a solid first draft. The unlimited revisions makes it easy to get exactly what I want. I really like that it's an overnight service -- I load up the queue late in the day, and projects are back in my in box the next morning. When you ask them to use their imagination and inspiration, they really come through. Always so cheerful, always so customer-centric. This is truly a great service and solves a TON of roadblocks for m. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wouldn't call it a dislike, but you DO have to put in the work of thinking about what you want and provide some initial direction. I recently added the additional custom art service so I can get even more input from their designers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Understand that you need to think through at least an initial concept. Think of them as expert sets of skilled hands on your team. Also, use their brand profile functions! You can have all your colors and fonts and requirements for them to reference easily. They are REALLY great on communication. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

We ran into a lot of delays trying to use canva or freelancers to get pro graphics done. I really hate a homemade look and now we have expert designers who can make everything look polished. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I am producing an activity book for pre-teens that required a significant number of custom designs and text layouts. In order to meet deadlines, the content needed to be completed on a regular basis. I was very impressed with how easy the Design Pickle process was to set-up and by how quickly the content is generated. My designer is fantastic to work with - very professional and responsive - and I am extremely impressed with his creative output. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The Design Pickle platform makes request submission, modification and communication really easy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

If I were forced to find fault with the Design Pickle process overall, I'll bet my designer is underpaid. I'll use this forum to argue that he deserves a raise! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

I had an ambitious design project in mind that I could not complete on my own. I had the optimistic hope that I could maybe complete the project in 3 months and I was able to finish in 2 and even expand the scope! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
