Through 99designs' service Swiftly, Eventbrite event organizers can get small design jobs done quickly and effortlessly. Once an event organizer has created an event page on Eventbrite, they can visit swiftly.com/eventbrite, provide a description of the banner design they want, and a designer will be assigned to create the design within one hour, for $19. The new event page artwork can then be automatically uploaded to their event page.

"Eye-catching graphic design can attract people to your event page, but it can be hard to know where to turn for artistic help," said Head of Platform Partnerships at Eventbrite, Dylan Serota. "Through our integration with 99designs, Eventbrite event organizers can tap into the well of talented Swiftly designers to help them create a striking event page."

By partnering, Eventbrite and 99designs have simplified the marketing process for event organizers by eliminating the need to search for a designer, provide design specs, download the file created, and then upload it to the event page. Everything is handled behind the scenes; event organizers only need to submit their requests and then select the design they like.

"We are thrilled to extend our services and share our talented designer community with Eventbrite event organizers. Enabling organizers to get custom-designed event banners through our Swiftly service is the perfect solution for people seeking to stand out from the crowd and make their event a success," said Patrick Llewellyn, President and CEO of 99designs.

The service is available today. For more information, visit the Eventbrite app page or swiftly.com/eventbrite.

You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
