Graphic Design Subscription

One-stop for all your designs. Flat monthly price, unlimited requests and revisions.

Unlimited graphic design is the fastest, most affordable way to get professional design. Learn what it is and how it works!

In an increasingly visual world, design matters more than ever. However, working with a design agency can be a significant strain on your budget. Freelancers are unpredictable in terms of quality and time management. 

So, should you hire a full-time team member to work in house? The average graphic designer salary is about $6,000, plus administrative costs. On top of that, one designer can’t  tackle every design project (e.g. complex illustrations and UI/UX design require vastly different skill sets).

So, is there a way to avoid all the shortcomings of professional design services? Yes! Allow us to introduce the unlimited subscription-based design services model. 

What does unlimited design mean?

You might come across terms like “unlimited” or “on-demand” design service, but usually, they refer to the same type of service. A monthly graphic design service means that you pay a flat monthly fee to make unlimited design requests. Here’s what you get: 

  • Unlimited design requests: There’s no limit to how many design requests you can make. But, there is usually an expected daily output.
  • As many revisions as you want: If you don’t like something, designers keep revising until you’re happy (at no additional charge).
  • Different types of projects: One service for a wide range of design projects, such as web design, social media graphics, branding, presentation design, digital marketing design etc.
  • No contracts: Have full flexibility to pause, cancel, scale up or down as you go. There are also no hidden administrative costs. Some companies also offer money-back guarantees.

How does on-demand design work?

Let’s take a closer look into the day-to-day of a flat-rate graphic design service. We’ll use ManyPixels as an example.

1. Make a rquest

Another great thing about working with a professional design service is that you don’t need to have any design knowledge. At ManyPixels we use a simple form that helps our clients create the perfect design brief.

You’ll need to choose the type of design and specify the design projects, and add anything you want your designated designer to know (brand assets, style inspiration, etc.). You can also leave it blank and communicate with the designer later on, but this route might take longer to get to the final design.

2. Communicate with your designer

At ManyPixels, we assign the designer according to their specific skills, so that you get the best person for each design task. Of course, once our clients get to know a certain designer, they’ll often request working with them on subsequent projects.

However, unlike freelancers, many subscription-based design services (ManyPixels included) also have project managers. They can offer expert advice, or suggest a different direction (whether it’s a change in style or a different designer to work with) if the project comes to a standstill.

3. Revisions

Most graphic design projects need revisions. However, on platforms like Upwork and Fiverr, freelancers usually specify a limit of revisions and charge extra for additional ones.

With flat-rate pricing you have the freedom to make as many changes as you want at no extra cost. This is a great feature for reusing graphics, or recurring campaign assets since you’ll get new designs in no time!

4. Final approval and delivery

Once you’re happy with the finished projects, your design task will be closed, and all the designs, as well as source files, safely stored in our app. 

Turnaround time depends from one unlimited design company to another. With ManyPixels, you will always get the initial feedback in 24 hours, and most design requests are delivered in just 1-2 business days!

The benefits of subscription-based design services

It all sounds good in theory, but how do unlimited graphic design services compare to other design providers? Here’s a quick look.

It’s cost-effective

The most tangible benefit of using a subscription-based service is the price. It goes without saying that you’ll really get your money’s worth if you make several design requests every month.

Still, most unlimited design companies charge between $300 and $800 a month. This is a fraction of the cost you’d pay a graphic design agency and what you’d pay a qualified freelancer for a single, more complex project.

Here’s a quick cost breakdown—prices for freelancers and design agencies are calculated based on the average hourly rate. Since these services often charge on a per-project basis, we’ve also included the average price for individual projects.

You can see how ManyPixels’ affordable fixed monthly rate easily wins over these one-off solutions (that are quite expensive in the long-run).

But how do we compare to hiring a design professional in-house? We’ll use our mid-range subscription plan ($549 per month) for this comparison. Let’s take a look.

It’s clear that when it comes to cost-effectiveness, for a full-time, professional design service, an on-demand model can’t be beat.

The best person for each design task

Unlimited services offer you the chance to work with an experienced professional for the exact type of design you request. And you don’t need to spend hours looking for the perfect hire either!

Fast turnaround time

Unlike in-house designers or freelancers, with an on-demand service, you never have to worry about unforeseen circumstances such as sick leave or holidays. There’s always a qualified designer on hand ready to take over! 

At ManyPixels most projects have a 1-2 day turnaround! And here’s our estimated daily output (what one designer can do in one working day): 

  • 2-3 social media graphics
  • or 1-2 custom illustrations (more if they are not too complex)
  • or 2-3 display ads
  • or 4-5 pages of a brochure, e-book, report or slide deck
  • or 1 GIF draft (2-3 sec)
  • or 1-2 flyers
  • or 1 logo design draft
  • or the first draft of a landing page
