DesignCrowd is pleased to announce to its beloved users the acquisition of Brandstack.com
, a leading online marketplace of premium, ready-made logo and brand marketplace, where designers can upload their favourite unused designs and buyers can find a premium quality ready-made logo fast and affordably.
We believe that are going to offer even more value for their existing customers with a combined service offering. Acquiring Brandstack gives DesignCrowd things: new, talented designers; a ready-made logo offering; and market leadership.
We think creative ideas are rare assets - they should not go to waste - and BrandCrowd will ensure they don't. It will allow us to unlock the value of our 500,000 unused designs submitted on DesignCrowd. This means every creative idea or design uploaded to DesignCrowd can lead to cash in the bank for our designers.
Brandstack (which is being re-launched as BrandCrowd) will be both the best and the biggest ready-made logo marketplace online.
Brandstack will now be 'BrandCrowd'
In parallel with the acquisition, we're proud to announce the launch of BrandCrowd.com
. "BrandCrowd" is the new name for Brandstack and a sister/brother website for DesignCrowd.
In the new year we'll integrate BrandCrowd and DesignCrowd more closely (thereby improving both websites for designers and customers!).
The acquisition will also improve the DesignCrowd service. Our designer community has now grown from 46,600 to over 50,000 designers (as we write this post we have 60,669 designers)!
