New offering helps businesses launch and grow

| March 18, 2015

Brand and graphic design marketplace 99designs has partnered with website builder Jimdo to provide business owners with logo design, website creation and hosting seamlessly on the 99designs website.

By bringing the services together it will be easier, faster and more affordable for businesses like those in the First 5000 network to upgrade their web offering.

“We think great brands start with a great logo and 99designs has successfully created hundreds of thousands of logos for businesses and entrepreneurs globally,” said 99designs President and CEO Patrick Llewellyn. “As we’ve grown and evolved, so have our customers’ needs. Now, with the addition of Jimdo, businesses can extend the essence of the brand captured in their logo to their hosted website.”

The deep integration between 99designs and Jimdo makes could make it even easier for entrepreneurs and SMEs to launch a business without having to spend time locating, interviewing and hiring designers and developers for logo and website creation.

It could be the perfect solution for First 5000 members who are planning to upgrade their corporate branding and website or create one if they work in an industry where it has not been a high priority for the business.

How it works in four easy steps:

1. Customers visit 99designs and launch a Logo+Website contest.
2. Customers complete a creative brief by answering a few questions about their business and preferred design style.
3. Design concepts stream in at which time the customer can collaborate and provide feedback to refine their favorite.
4. The customer selects a final logo design and the designer delivers a hosted Jimdo website that is easy to edit without requiring any technical skill.
