DESIGNCROWD FREELANCER NOTCHES $1M IN EARNINGS

A FREELANCE designer using DesignCrowd has raked in more than $1 million on the crowdsourcing platform.

Anand Thangavel (pictured), operating as PB from the UK, has become DesignCrowd's top freelance designer following the milestone.

The Sydney-based company provides logo, print, website and graphic design through its marketplace of designers and studios all over the world.

"Working as a freelance designer is the best decision I've ever made," Thangavel says.

"I'm working with clients from all over the world, I have the freedom to do the work that I want and I'm able to earn a good living from my skills, while picking the hours I work at my computer."

According to the Freelance Industry Report, the most common reason for freelancing is flexibility of hours and workflow. This is followed by financial independence, with freelance work increasingly becoming a viable career choice rather than just supplementary income.

DesignCrowd founder and CEO Alec Lynch says the milestone demonstrates the platform is achieving its mission, as well as growth.

"DesignCrowd's mission is to provide designers with the opportunity to be creative and earn money regardless of their location or prior experience," Lynch says.

"To see designers on DesignCrowd making hundreds of thousands of dollars and to see our first designer reach a million dollars in earnings is extremely rewarding.

"Anand's milestone earning on DesignCrowd is undoubtedly reflective of personal hard work, but it also speaks to the possibilities created by a global digital economy and crowdsourcing."

Other top DesignCrowd earners include Bluejet in Australia with more than $80,000 in earnings and US-based jaime.sp with almost $108,000.
