How To Get Small Design Tasks Done

I am a pretty good programmer. I can crank out code in several languages (e.g., C, C++, Java, PHP, Python, Lisp, Javascript), and usually it takes me half an hour or so to build a simple script to do something on one of my websites. That being said, I can’t design anything. If my life depended on doing something on Photoshop, I would be in deep trouble.

If you are like me you probably got stuck in the past with some design task you needed to get completed but didn’t know how to. For those situations I used to ping one of my designer contacts, but they were not always fast to reply, and most of the time they would charge a lot for a relatively simple task.

Well, a couple of months ago I discovered a service that solves this problem. It’s called Switfly. Once you create an account you can post a design task you need, and the site will match you with a designer who will do it for you in one hour or less, and you pay $19 for it. Not bad huh?

I hadn’t had the chance to try the service yet, but yesterday I needed to have a sprite image for one of my sites updated. I uploaded the file, specified what I needed, and in 20 minutes I got a reply saying it was ready. I was pleasantly surprised, and that is what prompted me to write this post recommending the service.

The next time you need to get some design task done, remember these guys.
