FAQ

Design industry professionals (architects, interior designers, lighting designers, interior stylists) and all field related professionals (construction, consulting, development). They are welcome to fill in "Join Designodom" form as freelancers or companies of any legal form.
Joining is free. You pay only for Designodom services if you are interested in a project and want to contact the client. Here is how it works:

a. To join Designodom, a company or a freelancer firstly fills in "Join Designodom" form. Your form is submitted and you receive a welcoming email. After that, you are member of Designodom. Welcome to the first client and designer professional matching platform!

b. While filling in "Join Designodom" form you are asked to provide us with information about your design experience, portfolio and background. You will also be asked to select all categories in which you want us to look for matches for you. There are 3 selection pools in which our algorithm looks for best client and designer match: consulting, design and construction. You can select all or pick only some of them. The form is fully customizable: you can always change your mind, come back and change your choices.

c. If you wish to be part in "Consulting" selection pool, the platform’s algorithm selects the designers that best meet the client's brief. Each has to pay 5€/£ (according to your local currency) to have his/her profile sent to the client and receive the client's contact details. 

d. The same is the case if you want to participate in "Design" selection pool. The only difference is that the fee to have your profile sent to the client and receive the client's contact details is 10/£ Designodom will get a commission on the project’s fee. This is gradual: For 0-5.000/£ (according to your local currency) it is 10%, 5-50.000/£  it is 8% and over 50.000/£  it is 3%.

e. The same as in point (d) above occurs if you choose to be part of "Construction" selection pool. 

Setting an entry barrier has proved (from past projects) that adds to the quality of our services. It prevents those who are not actually interested in the project and send too high or too low financial offers, driving the client away from the platform or just harming other designers who are interested in the project. Moreover, Designodom matches potential clients to the best designers for their project based on their portolfio, style, field expertise, availability, proximity etc. Even if (unfortunately) you end up not getting the project you hoped for Designodom has provided the opportunity you asked for. This is what this entry fee buys you.
If the professsional fails to provide all agreed project deliverables the client has the right not to pay. Designodom will charge it's agreed fee since it has fullfilled it's agreed part : client and designer were matched, the designer's profile was sent to the client, the designer signed a new deal. Designodom bears no responsibility on the project itself. It's job ends when client's wishlist and designer's profile are matched.
Designodom is built on a commission based business model.  If a professional’s profile is matched to a client request and the professional does not pay the platform fees the platform does not send his/her profile to the client. In case agreed service fees for a signed deal are not attributed to Designodom, the professional is deleted from all selection pools and opts out of any future projects. All Designodom legal rights are reserved.
We are happy to provide you will all the workflow you can take; that’s what we work for. In order to safe keep Designodom’s wellbeing, we have set a clear 1 year limit: If a client that has been matched with you via Designodom assigns you within 1 year with a new project Designodom will require for the same percentage over your fee. The same occurs when you propose hiring a collaborator of yours (another colleague, engineer or consultant) for the same project. This is based on the fact that Designodom has been the key facilitator that ignited these projects.
For the time being only Designodom has access to your profile. The data you provided belong to you and are not published in any way. They are used by Designodom to match your professional profile to the client’s brief. They are sent to the potential client, only if your profile matches the brief and you accept Designodom service charges.
In general Designodom's work ends when clients and designers are matched. However this might not be fair always. Unfortunately sometimes people change their mind or want to postpone a project. If a client rejects contact for many days or on different occassions inform us. We will ask if he/she is still interested for you. If the project has been withdrawn, each professional will be provided with a free contact lead.
All Designodom fees are calculated in your local currency. If you live in a country which uses euro, you are expected to pay Designodom fees in euros. If you live in a country which uses GBP, you are expected to pay Designodom fees in GBPs.
