Varun Aggarwal & Rahul Aggarwal (Designhill) – BS Best Performing Companies 2020

The World’s Leading Creative Marketplace

Creativity is a buzz word that almost every sector uses and there is the reason for emphasizing it as creativity unlocks the door that could unleash the huge potential to boost the businesses around the world. With innovation and a unique curve to the products and services, businesses can easily garner attention and attract the crowd to their business. Hence, organizations and businesses are always on the look-out for creative people who can propel the business to new heights. However, sometimes finding the right person at the right time becomes a challenging job while the precious time is slipping away. Designhill is the place where creative talents gather and offer exclusive services to the businesses in a seamless process.

Designhill is the world’s leading creative marketplace that caters to the creative needs of businesses and individuals alike who can source high-quality designs from professional designers and unique products created by independent artists. With over 150k designers and artists from 180+ countries bring the world’s best creative talent to clients’ fingertips. From helping business owners crowdsource multiple design concepts, to hiring the best designers for one-on-one projects, to millions of unique products created by world-class artists on the PrintShop Marketplace.

Astonishing Inception

With the advent of globalization and digital marketing taking over the way how businesses operate, new challenges and opportunities started manifesting themselves. People started looking at solutions beyond geographical boundaries, at an affordable cost and with better turnaround time. This was the time when Designhill happened based on the challenges faced by both business owners who had difficulty in sourcing high-quality creative designs and designers/artists, who were looking for quality work with absolute creative freedom.

Going back in time, just before the idea of Designhill took its roots; both the co-founders Mr. Rahul Aggarwal & Mr. Varun Aggarwal were facing similar challenges in their respective domains. While Mr. Rahul was looking for unique & creative branding ideas/solutions for their family business and was finding it very challenging to get creative solutions, diverse expertise, and a variety of options within a limited time frame and at an affordable cost. At the same time Mr. Varun, who used to work as a freelance designer, was facing his own challenges on a daily basis, be it creative freedom, accessibility to work, opportunity to work with great brands and securing payments. This led both of them to the idea of starting a dedicated platform for business owners and the designers/artists.

The journey started in 2014 when both the co-founders bootstrapped Designhill to address the pain-areas of business owners and encourage creative talents around the world by launching a technology-driven marketplace with the quality-first approach. That’s how Designhill came into existence. Although there were many challenges; but overall, it’s been an adventurous journey.

Men Driving Exemplary Success

Mr. Varun Aggarwal and Mr. Rahul Aggarwal are at the helm of Designhill. With highs and lows over the years, the co-founders assert, “it has been an overwhelming journey to generate livelihood for the majority of our designers & artists coming from developing countries and impacting their lives by providing them access to quality work from international clients. What makes Designhill really different is that we are able to provide a creative solution to every type of consumer whether it is a multinational organization or a work-from-home mom. Our aim is to make high quality designs accessible and affordable for all and with that purpose, we have built multiple services at Designhill, ranging from crowdsourced design contests, working one to one with global designers to artificial intelligence and machine learning powered design tools. And recently have launched a print on demand service for over 50+ products including t-shirts, phone cases, etc.”
