All plans include unlimited requests and revisions but each project is handled by the designer one at a time through a single queue that you can re-prioritize.

You'll pull from a pool of freelancers. The recruitment process consists of a 2-minute application form, attending an introduction meeting and completing a paid task.

A Full-Stack Team That Scales, Not Just a Couple Extra Designers

A Full-Stack Team That Scales, Not Just a Couple Extra Designers

Superside gives you a dedicated team that scales with you as your design needs change based on how many hours and capabilities you need each month. Have extra hours you didn’t use up during the month? Easily carry extra hours over into the next.

With Awesomic, you have a max of 2 designers on your account under their costliest plan—despite their claim that one subscription can replace a whole design department. Also, most of Awesomic's designers are freelancer designers, so committing to your project or overall vision may fall short.

Skills That Adapt to the Needs of Your Project, Not the Same Designer for Every Task.

Skills That Adapt to the Needs of Your Project, Not the Same Designer for Every Task.

Superside gives you a Creative Production Manager who has a deep understanding of your brand identity and communicates your briefs to whatever design skill your project requires ensuring expertise for each project.

With Awesomic, you get two dedicated designers. While working with the same designers might offer consistency, it can also be a detriment when you ask your UX designer for social media ads.


A DesignOps Process That Fosters Efficiency, Not Just Daily Updates

A DesignOps Process That Fosters Efficiency, Not Just Daily Updates

Superside prioritizes efficiency and collaboration by assigning you a Creative Project Manager who works with you to understand your needs and can make recommendations based on your goals for growth.

Awesomic’s emphasis on daily design updates over progress makes it easier to fall into the trap of micro-managing projects. You don't need another email notification cluttering your inbox. You just need the design done.
