Chat-Based Design Platforms

Olokuta Uses Messaging to Create Designs for Clients

— July 12, 2016 — Art & Design
Logos, website design, and collateral imaging are essential for any business, but hiring a full-time, in-house designer can be overkill; in response, Olokuta lets its clients order product design through their freelance, chat-based design platform.

All clients need to do is fill out a short questionnaire, chat to settle on a price and a designer and receive top quality graphics.

The chat-based design site can be used for website design, UI/UX design, logo design, app design, and virtually anything else that requires a skilled design professional. Olokuta's designer network has been created through an invite-only system, so all designs will be professional-quality.
