How did we choose these as the top billboard designers?

Your billboard is more than an advertisement. As a means of introducing yourself to the world, it represents your brand and is something some people will see every day. With so much at stake, it’s crucial to choose only the most qualified billboard designer to ensure your brand makes only the best impression.

We that in mind, we thoroughly vetted each of the freelance designers on our list using these criteria:

1. Design quality

Billboard Of Joyvin Wine

Anytime a designer joins 99designs, no matter their specialization, we carefully review their portfolio and evaluate their design skill based on conceptual thought, technical execution and knowledge of design principles evident in their work. Looking at these areas, we then assign one of three levels to that designer:

  • Top Level
  • Mid Level
  • Entry Level

We display every designer’s level on their portfolio page to let viewers know precisely what kind of designer they’re dealing with, whether someone who’s still learning all the tricks, to the masters who invented those tricks.

2. Billboard design experience

How good would the Mona Lisa look stretched out 48 feet and seen at a glance going 60mph? Billboard design has a whole host of considerations other fields in graphic design don’t have to worry about, not the least of which is an comprehension of advertising. That’s why, on top of design skill, we also factored in billboard design experience.

Judging based on past design contest results and client satisfaction, all the designers above have not just proven themselves capable of billboard design, but have also shown a proficiency at it.

3. Professionalism

More than just a good designer, you want someone you can work together with. That’s why we looked into each designer’s background for a high degree of professionalism. We poured through previous client feedback to make sure these designers communicate throughout the process, deliver on time and are generally a pleasure to work with.
