About the Company
Designy – Disrupting how Business Buy Graphic Design
We believe that buying graphic design for a company should be just as easy as buying a pair of shoes for a consumer. Today’s solutions – design agencies as well as freelance designers – do not live up to this expectation.
That is why we have built Designy: We package graphic design services into products that are easy to understand and that can be booked online at a highly competitive price and turnaround time.
We are not a design agency, we do not employ an army of graphic designers. Designy focuses on the scalable elements of the business model: customer satisfaction, guaranteed quality, a network of world-class designers and building the platform that manages these design projects with an incredible efficiency.
We currently operate our presentation design services with two brands:
- UnicornPitch (https://unicornpitch.com): Helps startups to raise money with excellent investors presentations and pitch decks.
- SlidePress (https://slidepress.eu): Helps SMEs and corporates bring their presentations to the next level.
