Introducing: Microawesome

A design service aimed towards providing short-term design work at lower cost.

For a while now at Superawesome we’ve been faced with an issue we’ve seen cropping up rather frequently: tiny design projects, unfit for a standard agency engagement. We usually had to take a pass on these projects, no matter how interesting they might be to us, all in favor of more sustainable, and lucrative opportunities.

Enter, Microawesome: an alternative way to work with designers.

We are firm believers that everybody deserves quality design. If you are a solo developer, or a super-tiny company in the making, it means that design can be your foot in the door, an edge that will separate you from the rest of the competition. However, we know how frustrating and time consuming it can be going through the entire process of:

  • researching and finding a designer or a design team,
  • scheduling calls between time-zones, and interviewing potential matches,
  • convincing them to take your project on despite your budgetary constraints, and short deadlines,
  • experiencing the unpredictability of the relationship, etc.

Microawesome is our response to this gap in the market, and we think we’ve found a way to work with people who we would not normally be able to work with.

In a nutshell, Microawesome is a service enabling proper, quality design services for low-budget, time-constrained projects.

That said, we still consider Microawesome an experiment so we’re still in the phase of validating the idea, and this is where things might get interesting for you.

We’re inviting everyone who needs design work to enter their project, and take a chance on winning one of the 3 Microawesome projects we’re going to do completely free of charge. Read on for details!

Heads-Up! is the blog of Superawesome which is a tiny design shop located in Novi Sad, Serbia.

You will find we post a lot about the business side of design, as well as sharing updates about the shop, and hyping stuff we found on the Web.

Don’t fancy hiring an agency?

What if we told you that you could get quality design work done, while not having to enter in a relationship with an agency at all?
