Back in 2015, Russ Perry, our CEO & Founder, had a large volume of straightforward but time-consuming design requests.
He found himself living the life of a creative consultant, but he couldn't quite nail the process.
Having to scratch his own itch, he knew something had to be done. A few flowcharts and off-the-shelf SAAS tools later, Design Pickle had a foundation—streamlining clients into a system to manage and execute their graphic design requests.
Come December 2014, he read the 7 Day Startup and literally had a lightbulb moment: What if he let other people use his design system?
BOOM! No less than three weeks later, Design Pickle was born, and the rest is history.
Fast forward to 2020, Design Pickle now sits as the #1 flat-rate and graphic design service in the world. We execute thousands of requests a week for clients all over the globe, delivered by our amazing full-time design team (who are also from all around the globe!).
Here's a picture of our team's very first annual company meeting in 2015. When we started, we were a close-knit team of 15 who got to meet in person.
Although this photo has too many pickles to count, THAT'S WHAT THE TEAM LOOKED LIKE IN 2018!!
This was taken during our Pickle Con in the Philippines. Even some folks from the United States were able to join in on the learning and fun. If you zoom in, you’ll find them near the center of the photo!
And here are some of our Production Team folks over in Mexico!
We've got pickles in other parts of the globe too and will definitely upload photos here once we meet them face-to-face.
