What's crowdsource design exactly?
Are you looking for radical design innovations? Outside of the box ideas designed by +500 young designers all around the world? Than the Design2Gather online idea generation track is the tool that will suit your job perfectly. Design2Gather established an online crowdsource design platform with many enthusiastic designers that are eager to get their ideas out there.
What is crowd source design?
The definition of crowdsourcing is as following:”The practice of obtaining needed services, ideas, or content by soliciting contributions from a large group of people and especially from the online community rather than from traditional employees or suppliers.” The Design2Gather platform focuses purely on idea generation for products, so that the designers are (at that stage) not limited to all kind of limitations for production or costs. This results in highly innovative and fresh out of the box product ideas.
How does it work?
Based on a project description, the Design2Gather team creates in cooperation with the customer a design challenge, or as we call it, Designment. This Designment will be placed on the online platform and designers will be notified and motivated to participate and join the challenge. On the platform, an online design studio is created with virtual rooms for designers to inspire, ideate, discuss and link creative thoughts together. The designers upload their final ideas in the idea space and when the deadline is passed, the Design2Gather team presents all the ideas to the customer. He/she can select their potential rising star for further development.
What’s in it for a designer?
Design2Gather is founded with the goal to make ideas reality, for customers but especially for young talented designers as well. Designers have the ability to work on real-life cases, work on their professional skills, receive feedback from professionals, get exposure within and outside the platform, cash rewards for selected designs and perhaps most importantly, a valuable learning experience. Design2Gather communicates and involves the development and production phases and learnings with the designers so that they can learn from process and see how their idea becomes reality.
How does it work with IP?
The design platform has a layered structure of protection of its content. Users can only see projects and when he/she wants to join a project, they have to completely fill in their profile and pass our check. In the online design studio, ideas are only visible for the creator of the idea and of course the admin can see all the ideas. Once the idea is selected, the designer will be rewarded and the ownership rights will be transferred.
What if I don’t want to make use of this platform?
