International printing service Saxoprint has launched a free network that connects charities with professional graphic designers. Saxoprint ProStudio lets businesses and charities write their own design briefs and have them completed by the selected designer from amongst the community of agencies and graphic designers.
The platform is designed in particular for organisations that do not have an in-house graphic department. They can choose to commission advertising materials, printed products or all of their business stationery.
Charities can search for designers by region, industry, or product specific expertise. They can send their briefs to a maximum of three designers: this restriction is designed to boost the chances of designers receiving a brief. Designers can control their workload by setting their status to “busy” or “available shortly”.
The whole business relationship from briefing through to payment takes place on the site.
There are no membership or registration fees to use the marketplace.
Daniel Ackermann, the managing direct of Saxoprint, commented:
“We are offering the creative industry a contemporary communication platform with ProStudio. Here, creative minds and small businesses or charities can profit equally from each other. True to our philosophy of having a ‘human touch to online printing’, we value and pride ourselves on user-friendliness and transparency.”
