We’ve increased the price of our pro accounts from $6 to $10 per month and our premium accounts will increase from $9 to $15. Briefbox is moving into it’s 5th version and we’re constantly working away in the background to improve the Briefbox service.
IMPORTANT: This will not affect existing paying members! Your original price will stay the same each month
Okay, why the increase?
2 years ago we introduced our paid accounts and in that time we’ve added an absolute ton of new features and benefits. We’ve added:
Saved briefs now go into your own learning path to help push your self development
We’ve curated our briefs and resources into tailor made series, across multiple categories and design disciplines to help guide you through our content
We’ve introduced badges for everything from completing content and series, rewarding self development and engaging with our community.
Introducing the Resource centre with tutorials, designer interviews and industry guides
We’re rewarding likes and comments to push our community to engage more with each other
Improved Submission Engine
We’ve re re-built our submission engine from scratch… no more issues uploading designs

Since introducing our paid accounts, we’ve never increased the prices. To date, with all the new features and support we offer, we hope that up and coming designers & illustrators can justify the change.
Tell me the good stuff? What’s new for Briefbox
We’ve got big plans for 2018, some exciting new designers will be joining our crew of mentors and we’re going to focus even more on looking after our pro and premium members wth an even more personalised service. We’re also working away on a new brand and set of guidelines that we’ll slowly be rolling out throughout 2018.
Ultimately we needed to hike the prices in order to keep offering a premium service. We’ve had to invest a lot more in our resources and mentors to make sure Briefbox stays as an effective online tool for designers and we want paying members to get the most out of it.
Finally, a big thanks and a note to our community
Since introducing our premium service with personalised feedback, we’ve been dazzled by the increase in quality of the work the community is producing. We’re super grateful to all those who have took the plunge and invested in a Briefbox paid account, and were delighted to see those people see a return of investment who put their money where their mouth is!
