Upwork is a freelance marketplace covering a broad range of services. However, you must manage each freelancer individually, which can lead to fragmented design services.

DesignOps that scale, not an uncoordinated herd

Superside’s DesignOps process provides you with a dedicated design team that attends to your immediate needs and scales as you grow. Operationalize design for reliable, high-quality assets with predictable pricing.

Upwork depends on individual freelancers, and you need to manage each one, which may lead to inconsistent results and miscommunication.

A collaborative creative partner, not a management headache

Superside assigns you a creative production manager (CPM) who deeply understands your brand, from fonts to logos and colors. They assemble the design specialists you need (e.g., motion designers, illustrators, etc.) to deliver the creative assets you require.

Upwork is a broad platform with freelancers offering various services. You need to find, vet, and manage each freelancer individually, which can lead to inconsistencies in quality and brand alignment.

Predictable pricing, no unexpected costs

Superside offers a flexible subscription-based pricing model customized to your specific needs. Start with a full design team for the price of a junior designer. Unused subscription hours roll over into the next month. Got a big campaign coming up? Ramp up your Superside design team to suit your demands—from a simple infographic to a comprehensive guide with promotional ads on every social channel.

On Upwork, pricing varies greatly based on the freelancer's rate and the complexity of the project. The platform also charges a service fee for each transaction, and you may have additional admin work managing multiple freelancers.
