Now you can have your own in-house designer for the costs and convenience of an Unlimited Graphic Design service
If you’ve considered using an unlimited graphic design service, then you’re probably attracted to the idea of always having a designer available to work on your stuff, anytime you need them, without having to worry about the cost. On the surface, unlimited graphic design services, like Design Pickle, Penji, and ManyPixels, seem like the perfect solution.
As the most recognized brands in the unlimited graphic design universe, they all do a pretty decent job of delivering designs fast and affordable design. However, if you are trying to build a reputable brand by constantly delivering quality marketing collateral that you’re proud of, then speed and price alone are just not enough. Instead, you’ll need a graphic designer partner that can do more than just an unlimited volume of work. Unlimited Graphic Design services are cheap, which is their most appealing quality but also one of their biggest flaws. For $370 per month, you can get your graphic design work done fast and cheap but typically need to concede on quality to do so. If you’re ok with entry-level work, not having real-time interactions with your designer, and are just looking for the cheapest possible solution, then Design Pickle, Penji, and ManyPixels might actually be the best fit for you.
However, if you value professional quality work and service, would rather work with someone in your time zone so that you can have real-time communications, and are willing and able to invest a little more in long term growth and sustainability, then there is another option that takes the idea of unlimited graphic design to a whole new level, which may be a better fit for you
In a perfect world, instead of using an unlimited graphic design service, everyone would have their own in-house graphic designer. They would be someone on your team, who knows your brand and your expectations. They would be there for you every day, all day. They would turn stuff around quickly, even at short notice. However, most businesses and marketing teams don’t have the budget or volume of work to need someone full time, which is exactly why you turned to an unlimited graphic design service in the first place.
So, what if you could essentially have your own in-house graphic designer without all the costs, commitment, and hassle of actually having to hire someone full time?
That would be pretty cool, eh? Well, lucky for you and the other people who are serious about marketing, such a service exists. It’s called Graphic Design on Demand.

Better than “Unlimited Graphic Design”?: In-house graphic designers for small teams and small budgets with Darkroast
Here at Darkroast we pioneered this new way of working as an improvement on the already optimized “Unlimited Graphic Design” service model. We’re marketers and business owners too. And we know first-hand the kind of impact that an in-house designer can have on your productivity and want to make sure that any team can add a super talented in-house designer without breaking the bank.
The creative people behind loveable brands:
With graphic design on demand, you get the same experience as having your own in-house designer, but virtually. To start, you get to work with the same person every day on unlimited projects. You never have to wait, and they turn things around quickly. Except, you don’t actually have to hire and manage another person on your team.
Graphic design on demand is an obvious step up from an unlimited graphic design service. In fact, it’s even a step up from hiring an in-house designer, because an in-house designer is only one person, just like you would have only one designer if you went to an unlimited graphic design service. There will be days when the designer is sick or on vacation. They may get bogged down under a ton of work. In contrast, with graphic design on demand, even though the same designer works on all your projects, there’s also a team in the background, who can pitch in and support your designer, so there’s never any downtime.
Finally, having your own virtual designer with graphic design on demand is a fraction of the cost of hiring an actual full-time in-house designer. You’ll still have your own designer who’s ready to go anytime you need them, but you won’t have to spend $50,000 to $70,000 a year on their salary. That’s what we pay our designers, but you won’t need to spend that much to have your own designer.
What WE pay for YOUR designer
What YOU pay for YOUR designer
We’ll set you up with your own professional virtual in-house designer for LESS than what you would pay to hire a part-time minimum-wage employee. But unlike the aforementioned Unlimited Graphic Design services, at Darkroast we don’t use freelancers or outsource any work overseas.
All our designers are employed by us, full time, in Canada. They all have around 5 to 10 years of experience and a minimum 3-year degree in graphic design.
Best of all, you can see what it’s like to have your own designer for free.
That’s right! We’ll set you up with your own designer and let you work with them on a couple of small test projects, absolutely free. No cost, no commitment, no hassle. We won’t even ask you for a credit card. So, you don’t need to wait for approval from your boss or accounts before you try us out.
No credit card. No commitment. No BS
Because we’d just love to have an opportunity to show you how much of a game changer it can be to add a virtual designer to your team, you can meet one of our designers and see if you like working with them before you have to pay for anything.
The only catch is that we can’t offer this to everyone. We obsess over the quality of work and experience that we offer our clients so we don’t take on more than we can handle. Which unfortunately means that new client opportunities and especially free trials are limited.
So if you’re interested in the idea of adding a new super talented designer, who’s going to join and grow with your team, or just have some questions click on the get started button bellow to see if we have any openings for this month. If there are, you’ll want to secure one of those coveted time slots right away. Even if you think this might be something to look into next year or next quarter, you’ll want to get the conversation started now so that your new in-house designer will be ready to go for when you need them.
