Create your profile

When you join Designers Trust as a designer, you create your own profile containing experience details, a short bio and credentials.

You will also be able to build your portfolio and submit any concepts that are just waiting for the right brand or buyer.

Joining Designers Trust is free. We get paid when you get paid. When you upload a project, you determine possible compensation models, which will be visible to brands and buyers. You keep half of the revenue.

Working with us at Designers Trust, you are ensured half of the revenue made on your designs. We find the brands, handle the fine print and promote your skills – you focus on creating great designs.

To ensure the high standard of designers and the concepts in the Trust, all profiles are subject to a review process before they are activated on the platform. This is to protect the integrity of the design craft and to guarantee the quality of the work that brands will meet on Designers Trust.

Submit your concepts

As designers, we know that inspiration often strikes without a client waiting. So at Designers Trust you’ll get the opportunity to upload concepts that need help finding the right brand for execution.

If you want to showcase your concepts on Designers Trust, you get to select a mode of compensation from a range of predefined models. Fee, royalties or a mix – the choice is yours.

When you submit a concept, we have review designers ready to help ensure the best possible result by offering input to help sharpen your project for presentation.

Your concepts will not be publicly visible but showcased only when brands request private viewings. Our account team will select the projects that match the requirements of the brand for viewing. This is done to protect your IPRs as a designer while making sure that relevance for brands is high.

Projects can also be presented to brands in monthly “inspirational updates” curated specifically for each client.

Design Pitches

Engage in briefs

Brands that are on our platform can host Design Briefs.

You will have the opportunity to be matched with incoming briefs based on your experience, portfolio and interests.

The compensation terms and deadlines are stated in each design brief to ensure transparency.

You can either submit a new concept or an existing concept from the Trust (should the concept match the brief).

If your concept is selected by the brand, you will win the brief and start working with the client on developing the concept into a production-ready design.
