At Design Pickle, we’re guided by our mission to be the world’s most helpful creative company. That’s why we provide unlimited, high-quality design work to thousands of businesses for a flat rate, allowing them to focus on the work that matters.

But our jobs go far beyond Adobe files. We’re proud to live our mission through Random Acts of Design: a pro bono project that serves the non-profit community.

Random Acts of Design is a quarterly program created by Design Pickle to amplify the voices of non-profit organizations. By providing access to high-quality design and templates, these organizations can produce flyers, logos, one-pagers and countless other promotional items that elevate their efforts, but are seldom in the budget.

Every quarter, Design Pickle will select 3 non-profit organizations to receive a yearlong FreshStock subscription, providing access to premium templates and vectors. One grand prize winner (selected through public voting) will receive three free months of a Graphic Design Essentials Plan, along with the following support:

1-1 Leadership Training

1-on-1 personal development and leadership training from Design Pickle Founder & CEO, Russ Perry.

Marketing Consultation

Three months of marketing consultation from Dena Patton, Co-Founder of the Girls Rule Foundation.
