During the wrap up phase of the contest, there may be a little more than a few "minor changes" that you would like to make to your winning design. Our designers are usually more than willing to make changes for you in wrap up, but there may come a point when they ask for more money to compensate for their extra work. This is because any work done in the wrap up phase is at the discretion of the designer.
We make it possible to hire a designer that has won one of your contests after a contest has been deemed "complete". In other words, all stages of wrap up have been completed: picking a winner, downloading and reviewing the files, approving the files, and providing feedback to the designer. Once your contest is complete, you may click the "Hire Designer For More Work" button.
Alternatively, you may come back to HiretheWorld sometime in the future and seek out your winning designer to make some changes to your winning design or create more designs for you. Maybe you had a logo done and would now like a business card; maybe you had a homepage designed and now would like a contact us page designed for your site. All of this is doable through our one-on-one projects.
Simply log in to your HiretheWorld account and from your dashboard click on "My design team" and then the "Hire" button next to one of your winning designers.
Both approaches will take you to the "Post a Project" page where you can describe the details of your follow up project. We suggest that you describe as clearly as possible, the scope of the project and what you require. The designer needs to be able to assess how much time it will take them so they can approve or make a counter offer to your proposed budget.
You can use the budget slider bar to choose roughly how much you would like to offer the designer in exchange for the final deliverable that you request in the project details. Don't worry, there is an opportunity for you to negotiate with the designer a final contract budget.
When you send the invitation, we send an email to your designer and let him know that you would like him to do some more work. He will review the project and either accept your offer, provide a counter bid or message you for more details about the project.
There is a messaging system that will allow you to communicate and transfer files with the designer before and during the duration of the project.
When the designer accepts your offer, you then confirm the details of the contract and pay the "initial escrow deposit". This is a percentage of the budgeted contract that allows the designer to begin work knowing that there is money on the table. Upon completion of the project and after reviewing the files, the designer will ask for final payment in which case you will close off the contract by releasing the money in escrow and paying out the remaining amount as agreed upon in the contract.
