The Evolving Crowd Industry

In an earlier post, I explored the new “Crowd” industry, in particular CrowdSourcing.  That article generated good interest, so I’m following up with an additional aspect : “Crowd Design”.

CrowdDesign

Just like CrowdSourcing, CrowdDesign is the process where potential customers will post projects and list a “winning fee” for each.  Once posted, anyone can go to the “Crowd” site and submit their work for consideration.  The company/person who posted the job then selects the winning design.  If selected, then the posting fee is delivered to the winner.
