Trusted by thousands of brands, Design Pickle is an unlimited graphic design service that offers high-quality, cost-effective, and scalable graphic design for any size business or industry. We set out on a mission to change lives through creativity in 2015 and just 5 years later we’ve completed over 500,000 design requests (and counting!).
Design Pickle came to life when our founder, Russ Perry, realized there was a major gap in the entire graphic design industry. You could hire reliable designers and design ﬁrms, but they often cost a small fortune. On the other hand, there are cheap freelancers and other graphic design services, but they can be unreliable (and the cost of revisions quickly add up). Design Pickle was created to be an affordable graphic design alternative that provides a reliable and creative custom design unlike anything available in the graphic design industry.
As you can see from the video above, Pickles just have a different style when it comes to graphic design. You shouldn’t have to pay every single time you need a simple tweak done or even a complete redesign if your designer missed the mark on their first try.
We are not satisﬁed with your designs until you are, which is why our service comes with unlimited graphic design requests and revisions. There’s no limit to how many new designs you can request or how many revisions you need. Every business day your designer is available and
working on any design requests you have pending.
Do you have multiple brands or businesses? No Problemo! There’s NO LIMIT on the number of brands for which you can use your Design Pickle account. We realize in this fast-paced internet culture, many people have several different brands whether they own multiple businesses or work on multiple projects. Denying our clients the chance to request unlimited brands just doesn’t jive with our mission statement.
Every Design Pickle client is paired up with their own dedicated graphic designer to bring their ideas to life. Our graphic designers are completely ego-free, with quality review teams and managers supporting you and your designer throughout the creative process.
We make sure to pair you with a designer who matches your business, your brand, and how you plan on using our service.
On-boarding is simple. Just answer a few questions so we can learn more about your specific needs and match you with a designer uniquely qualified to serve you.
If you’ve worked with graphic designers before, you know the struggle of trying to keep the same branding consistency in all of your designs. We recognize this struggle and thwart it before any major mistakes are made.
Our general rule for all graphic requests is that if you can describe what you want in an email, then we can give it a try. You can even sketch or scribble what you need to be designed, take a picture, and send it in with your request. We want to make this as easy as possible for you.
We aren’t a replacement for a full-time designer. Services not within our scope include:
We have created our own app that you will use to manage creative requests, and communicate with your designer. You can use email to submit requests, but the Design Pickle Platform is designed specifically for request management and ensures that you don’t miss any important details.
Design Pickle Platform is also fully integrated with Unsplash and Getty Images! If you need a stock photo for your graphic, you can search both image databases directly inside the Design Pickle Platform! If you don’t have time to search, you can always tell your designer what you’re looking for and they’ll search for it for you.
The Design Pickle Platform stores all of your past requests for as long as you stay a client. If you ever need a revision, or you just want to look through your past design requests, you can do it directly in the Design Pickle Platform.
Your professional graphic designer works on your requests every business day.
In general, you can expect your first round of designs back in 1-2 business days for our Next-day service. You can expect your first round of designs back the same day with Design Pickle Pro. Your designer works on your queue each business day. However, turnaround time is dependent on two factors:
The complexity of your requests and the number of active requests in your queue.
If you need additional help, we have a dedicated customer success team in the trenches ready to handle any challenge you may throw at them. Similar to working with a dedicated designer, you will get your own dedicated Customer Success team member assigned to you. This helps to build a relationship with your personal Customer Success representative so we can tackle your concerns efficiently and effectively. Just send an email to [email protected] and they will be happy to assist you!
You own everything we create for you. Our designers provide the source files for each project they work on. You receive an editable Adobe file as well as a JPG, PNG, and PDF for every completed design.
You are never locked into a contract and can cancel at any time for any reason. There are no setup or cancellation fees.
Our Design Pickle Standard accounts comes with a risk-free 14-day 100% satisfaction money back guarantee while our Pro accounts will have a 21-day 100% satisfaction money back guarantee.. If we’re not the best ﬁt for your business, you may cancel and get your money back, no questions asked, as long as you cancel within the first 14 or 21 days.
You may not need the same graphic output each and every month, so you can put your account on hold for $14.99 per month. We will keep all of your ﬁles safe and sound, and you can access any past designs at any time.
Here at Design Pickle, we pride ourselves on being able to help so many people around the world and that is partly due to our low monthly cost. Design Pickle’s Standard plan is only $399 per month to enjoy our unlimited graphic design service. Our Pro plan is just like having a design assistant for only $995 per month where you will be able to communicate with your designer in real-time.
These price points allow us to work with everybody who otherwise would not be able to hire a graphic designer and it’s the reason why so many of our clients have fully integrated us into their day-to-day life.
Think of us as your graphic design BFFs! Just like real BFFs, we both need to learn a little bit about each other before making any requests.
After signing up, we’ll ask you a few questions so that we can have a better understanding of your needs and how we can help your business. Then we will walk you through a series of videos that will teach you how to get the most value out of your Design Pickle subscription. You are free to start requesting once the on-boarding process is complete!
There is one main way to submit design requests, by using our custom created app, the Design Pickle Platform.
The Design Pickle Platform ensures that you’re not missing any important details with each request you send in.
You can submit a request by following three simple steps:
STEP 1 – DESCRIBE THE DESIGN
Step 1 is actually the only step that is mandatory! The other steps in the Design Pickle Platform allow you to thoroughly explain to your designer exactly what you’re looking for so they can nail it on their first attempt. Don’t worry – you will still be able to request unlimited revisions if needed!
In Step 1, you’ll name your design, pick your file size and dimensions, and describe what you want in your request. The other fields in Step 1 are completely optional, but filling them in will help your designer get a general vibe and style direction of your new request.
You also have the option to ﬁll in the target audience for your design, share links to inspiring photos or websites you want your designer to gain inspiration from, and you’ll have a chance to describe what you’re NOT looking for.
At the bottom, you can select which file type(s) you need for your design. By default, we will provide a JPG, PNG, PDF, and the Adobe source files.
STEP 2 – NEED STOCK PHOTOS?
In Step 2, you’ll have a chance to search the Unsplash and Getty Images database. Unsplash is free for all clients to browse, but access to the Getty Images database costs an extra $25 per month.
If you require a stock photo added to your design request simply select “Yes, I need photos”. Then answer whether you prefer to search for your own photos, or if you’d like your designer to search for you.
If you want to search for your own photos, select “Find my own photos”. A search box will appear and you can search for what you’re looking for. Unsplash will automatically load photos with that keyword. If you upgraded to Getty Images, you can browse their database too.
If you want your designer to search for you, just tell them what you’re looking for and they’ll do the legwork for you! Onward to Step 3!
STEP 3 – UPLOAD YOUR ASSETS
Step 3 is the place to upload any assets you would like to share with your designer for your request. You can upload logos, branding colors, a specific font, or even a hand-drawn doodle of what you’re looking for! Don’t worry if you’re not a good artist; our designers are good enough to turn your napkin drawing into graphic design gold.
Once you get into a good flow with your designer and understand what makes a great request, you can begin to send in email requests to your designer.
The Design Pickle Platform will store all of your past requests for as long as you’re a client. If you ever need a revision, or you just want to look through your past design requests, you can do that all directly in the Design Pickle Platform.
Our unlimited graphic design service quickly delivers quality designs. However, we aren’t a replacement for a full-time designer. Services not within our scope include:
Our list of what we CAN make for you is rather extensive. Remember our golden rule: If you can describe what you need in an email, we’ll give it a go!
Since we’ve delivered over 425,000 unique design requests, we have been able to make graphics for just about everything under the sun.
Here are just some of the requests that we’ve seen come through the Design Pickle Platform
Now, you should have a better idea of what kind of graphics you can expect from Design Pickle. So let’s walk through a few of our most popular sample requests. Again, you can use email or the Design Pickle Platform to submit your requests.
Let’s be real—The creative process can be tricky. Sometimes it takes a few tries for your dedicated graphic designer to really lock into your business’s branding style. We offer unlimited revisions because we want you to be in love with your final designs.
The easiest way to FALL IN LOVE is to learn how to work with a graphic designer. You can directly reply to any email or Design Pickle Platform request to provide feedback for that specific project.
All feedback should follow these three basic rules:
And remember, your feedback doesn’t always have to be negative. Our designers are real people just like you and they love when you provide positive feedback when they really nailed your designs.
On the surface, our service is for anybody who has had any experience working with a graphic designer before.
Does that mean we won’t accept clients who have never used a graphic designer before? Not exactly, but we’ve noticed that those who have worked with a graphic designer in the past typically have more success with our service.
Why? Those who have experience working with graphic designers are usually able to provide better directions to their Design Pickle designer and they understand the design process with more clarity.
We’ve created a handful of onboarding videos to set each new customer up with success, so if this will be your ﬁrst time using a graphic designer, make sure you pay extra close attention to those videos!
You should sign up for DESIGN PICKLE today if any of these resonate with you.
A team of people from around the globe dedicated to changing lives through creativity. Though graphic design is our expertise, we don’t “pickle” hole ourselves in terms of created helpful resources for others. We’ve created several graphic design resources to help others get more out of their graphic design.
Our DIGITAL DESIGN LIBRARY contains over 200 examples of real design requests we have created for our clients to help you with graphic design inspiration.
Our HOW TO CREATE A COMPLETE BRANDING GUIDE will detail exactly what you need to do to create a complete branding guide for your business.
Our DIY GRAPHIC DESIGN TOOLBOX shows you how to take advantage of graphic design to make your business more proﬁtable, outlines the best free and paid tools you can use, will help you communicate with outsourced designers, and will show you how to market your newly created graphics.
We send out monthly questions related to business, marketing, and productivity, so we can spread our knowledge with our clients and fans. So far we’ve asked about chatbots, social media advertising, work-life balance, and where our clients get most of their work accomplished.
We teach others about how they can hack Design Pickle to create HUGE projects (like a 77-page ebook!).
We assist our clients and fans about how to speak the native language of graphic designers so they can get back better requests. You can check out more helpful, inspiring, and creative posts on our blog (like our guide to taking your flyer design to the next level).
And we also inspire our own employees to dynamically change their lives and grow. We’ve hired over 20 employees spread out over America and have over 130 employees holding down the production end in the Philippines.
Our founder, Russ Perry, hosts a weekly Facebook Live show and podcast called “The Russ Perry Show” where he uses his platform to inspire fellow entrepreneurs and hustlers on “cheatcode” of sobriety in the four core areas in life: body, being, balance, and business.
Russ recently authored a tell-all on why he decided to live a sober life in his book (which you can get for free) “The Sober Entrepreneur“.
We recently sponsored the National Pickleball Championship.
And we turned the Pickle everyone loves into full-ﬂedged merchandise that anybody can wear around to impress their friends and family.
We know how to have fun all while helping over 2,000 individuals and small businesses get the graphic designs they need at a price they can afford.

While some Design Pickle clients love waking up to a new design in their inbox from their designer, some users prefer that their designer works during US hours. Working the same hours means getting your revisions done immediately rather than having to wait until the next creative round to give feedback to your designer. With your Design Pickle Pro virtual graphic designer, clients who do not want to wait another day don’t have to!
Introducing Design Pickle Pro, your design assistant. Now you can request and receive your graphics on the same day!
Design Pickle Pro is a new faster tier of Design Pickle offering a dedicated graphic designer available to clients during US business hours. You’ll be able to collaborate in real-time with your designer to make edits and provide feedback during the time that is most convenient for you. Plus, a lower designer to client ratio means that your designer will have more bandwidth exclusive to you and getting your design needs met.
Design Pickle Pro clients can communicate with their designer in real-time meaning your designer will be able to get more designs done for you in a standard business day.
Real-time communication enables your designer to knock out revisions quicker as well as tackle design requests more efficiently. If either you or your designer has a question regarding a specific project, you can quickly hop into Slack and ask it. Slack will send notifications so you can reply or get an answer in minutes.
Our designers will try to get done what they can with the time they have in their shift.
Need a quick change made to your latest request? No problem. Want to hear what your
designer has in mind for a design? Ask them right now! Don’t want to wait another day to see
what your designer was up to? You got it. You’ll be blown away by how much better working in
real-time with your designer is. No more waiting a day to get your requests.
Real-time communication with your designer will be powered by Slack (which is free to use!).
When you become a Design Pickle Pro client, you will be added to a private Slack channel with your
designer, a quality reviewer, a production manager, and a representative from our Customer
Success team. Slack will be like your own little private design club where you can collaborate with your designer, request edits, and get your questions answered.
You will beneﬁt most by having one primary point-of-contact to manage your Slack channel.
Your designer will then have a dedicated individual to contact if they have any questions.
Design Pickle Pro is like having your own part-time designer for a fraction of the cost and with
You are able to develop a better, more intimate graphic design experience as you collaborate
with your designer every business day in real-time. And if you have any issues, your account will
be backed up by our world-class support team.
Anyone interested in the Design Pickle Pro can sign up here.
Here’s how the Design Pickle Pro tier will work:
Design Pickle Pro is great for people who have worked with a graphic designer before, understand the process of working with a designer, and want their designs delivered faster. It is particularly helpful for clients whose requests tend to have many small edits that can be made with a quick back and forth, real-time chat with your designer. Design Pickle Pro will also benefit those tired of surprise charges as well as those who would like more oversight and reliability to the production of their graphic design.
If that sounds like you, you can sign up here.
Design Pickle Pro may not work well for teams who work outside of US business hours compatible
time-zones, teams that would rather take a “set it and forget it” approach towards their requests
queue, or teams that do not want to collaborate with their designer in real-time.
If this sounds like you, our Standard Plan will be a better ﬁt for you and your business needs.
Design Pickle Pro is $995/month with a 21-day risk free satisfaction guarantee.
There is no long-term commitment you must make to Design Pickle Pro. If at any time you’re
dissatisfied with our Design Pickle Pro or simply want to move back to a Standard Plan, just let us know!

Graphic design has become a cornerstone of business in today’s rapidly expanding digital landscape. Even if your business doesn’t operate solely online (like ours does), you still need various graphics for social media, flyers for promotions, and maybe even a billboard (yes, we’ve done it!).
The truth is, it’s hard to quantify just how many graphic designs you’ll need over a certain period of time. This is one of the many reasons why our flat-rate models are so popular with our current clients. But one thing is undeniable – effective graphic design can have a huge impact on your ROI.
Effective graphic design enables your business to:
And remember: a picture (or graphic!) is worth 1000 words.
