Using Browse Projects

What is Browse Projects?

Browse Projects allows designers to opt-in for projects shared by clients. When a new project is started, certain projects are posted on Browse Projects and paid upfront by the client.

As a designer, you can find the Browse Projects list under the ‘Your Work’ section of your 99designs account. Alternatively, you can review all live job posts here and determine which ones you are interested in. When exploring the different projects, ensure that you use the date, package & industry filters to help narrow down your search.

To view a project, click ‘View’ next to the project's title. Each listing also shows your total earnings for completing the project successfully. It’s important to note that client introduction fees or platform fees are included in the project total. 


To help make your project search a little easier, you can also click the ‘trash can’ icon to show us that you’re not interested in a particular job and why. This will help our team gain a greater understanding of your project preferences.

What do clients see when I opt-in for their project?

We will send the client a notification that you are expressing interest in their project. 


The main thing the client will see is your portfolio samples. We recommend keeping your portfolio lean and focused, so clients have a clear understanding of your skillset. Your top 4 relevant samples will rise to the top, based on what a client is searching for. Because of this, it’s best to showcase a small number of high-quality designs for each category in your portfolio. This will also help you stand out amongst other designers who apply for the same projects.



What happens once I’m selected?

Once you have been chosen as the designer, you will receive a notification to review your new project. 


Here you can introduce yourself and start collaborating!
If you encounter any issues with your client, you can always contact our Designer Support Team by email for tips and guidance.
