It’s impossible to launch a design project with a designer who isn't available – that's why we built our availability feature! It takes the guesswork out of wondering whether the designer you're inviting to your project is available to take on new clients.
It works like this...
1. When you view a designer's profile, first you want to make sure you click on "About". This is the page shown below.
2. You’ll see an “Invite to work” button on the upper right part of the page (as shown below) if he or she is available for projects. When a designer sets their availability to “off” the “invite to work” button will disappear.
3. You can also see just how responsive a designer is to prospective clients with the responsiveness score on the designer’s About page. As shown below you can see that this designer responds to 100% of project requests within 24hrs.
4. Last helpful piece of information is that you can see how long it has been since the designer was last online with 99designs.
