Ready to increase your designer level?

What are designer levels?

At 99designs, we work hard to maintain the quality and trust of our design community. That’s why we diligently curate all of our designers based on skill level, overall quality and professionalism.
To reward designers as they build their skills, 99designs curates every member of our design community into one of three levels: Top, Mid and Entry Level.

What are 99designs’ quality standards?

While we recognize that design is inherently subjective, there are certain industry standards that clients rely on us to enforce. 99designs curates our designer community based on the following:
  • Execution of design principles
  • Conceptual thought
  • Technical skills and deliverables
  • Client communication and satisfaction

How can I increase my designer level?

99designs hosts application periods throughout the year for designers to apply for higher level status.
When you apply, our Designer Curation team will review your portfolio and account history, including professionalism, disputes and suspensions. 
Designers may not apply to increase their level outside of application periods. Due to the high volume of applications, responses may take up to two months (please be patient with us!).
Upleveling applications are currently closed.
