Brush up your skills whatever your current design level
Just starting out in design, Briefbox Premium has helped me develop my design skills big time! Getting personalised feedback on all my submissions really helps me to see where I'm going wrong and what I can do to help my design work improve
— Matt Thompson (London, UK)
Briefbox has been awesome to help me constantly improve as a designer. I can get bogged down in client work as it's not always the style of work I love. Briefbox helps me to pick and choose fun, exciting projects to work on in my own time without a client breathing down my neck
— James Mathews, (Boston, USA)
I've been a designer for 12 years and currently have a large client base. I spend much of my day to day working on proposals, admin and account management and missed the creative freedom of working on quick creative projects. Briefbox has helped me find that spark to enjoy design again
— Lisa Sandford (Liverpool, UK)
