Special Program for Design Students

Beginning in 2015 DesignQuote will offer a special program for students. We want to help new designers and developers get a head start on their career. Our new Student Connect initiative connects our most successful designers with students in order to mentor and give advice.

DesignQuote provides real clients needing real work. This can be a great learning experience for students.

Many of our clients are looking to hire students in order to save money. Designers charge more based on experience, so this is a great way to get real world experience, earn money, and build your portfolio. At the same time, clients on a budget can get the work they need without paying the rates for an established designer.

If you are a recent graduate or an active student enrolled in a design or web development related program with a participating school, you may be eligible.

Student Program Benefits*

Student Connect: Students can interact with and get help from successful professional designers. Our new program provides incentives for our best designers to participate and give guidance in our student forum.

What is DesignQuote?

DesignQuote launched in 2006 and represents over 50,000 desingers worldwide. DesignQuote has helped almost 10,000 clients hire a designer to help them with their project. DesignQuote is a lead service for designers. Client's come and post their project requirements. DesignQuote staff qualify the project, then make it available to a limited number of designers. Designers purchase the lead and provide an estimate to the client. If the client accepts the proposal, they hire the designer directly.


Students must register with an email address from a participating school. Or have their participation verified by their teacher.
