How did we choose these as the top banner designers?

Banners may seem simple, but that doesn’t mean designers skimp on the effort. Communicating your message as effectively as possible requires a skill set that includes advertising, branding and traditional graphic design. If you want to make the most out of your banner, you need to hire a top designer, so we carefully hand-picked each one on our list based on the following criteria:

1. Design quality

We subject all of our designers to a preliminary evaluation when they first join 99designs. An expert from our team assesses their portfolio and gauges each designer’s proficiency in conceptual thought, technical execution and knowledge of design principles. The results determine which of our three levels the designer falls into:

  • Top Level
  • Mid Level
  • Entry Level

You can see these levels clearly displayed on each of our designer’s portfolios, so you know whether you’re dealing with a verified expert, or an expert-to-be.

2. Banner design experience

You don’t want just any designer to make your banner, you want one who has done banner design before—and often. Aside from just having experience in banner design, every freelance designer on the list above has received exceptional feedback from their clients on the final product.

3. Professionalism

A good designer is more than just their design skills. We also looked into whether they communicate with clients throughout the process, meet deadlines and foster a satisfactory work relationship. We reviewed feedback from their previous employers to ensure everyone on our banner designer list is, first and foremost, a professional.

Are you ready to hire an stellar freelance banner designer?

Sometimes banners carry a crucial message, and sometimes they just create atmosphere. But unless your banner is designed well, it won’t do anything except hang there. Take a look at our list above and choose the freelance banner designer that fits your project best.
