Our Design Partners are amazingly talented designers who stand out above the crowd with their amazingly creative design skills and their willingness to go above and beyond to ensure a great customer experience.

Here is a brief overview of our process for reviewing Design Partner applicants.


Our review process typically takes 4-6 months to complete.

Customer Experience Review

We connect with past clients to hear feedback about the execution of their design, communication, and customer service. We ask for feedback similar to this:

  • Are you pleased with your website design completed by your designer?

  • Was the designer attentive throughout the design process to make sure your needs were met?

  • Was the designer good about communication through the contract period?

  • How likely are you to refer them to a friend? Why?

*We may contact clients beyond the ones listed in your application.
