How did we choose these as the top 3d designers?

Quality

3d design
by MirkoAndricDesign™

Finding a 3D designer can be daunting. 99designs makes the process easier by hand-rating our designers into Top-, Mid- and Entry-Levels. These ratings are based on designers’ technical skills, execution and creative concepting capabilities.

Experience with 3D design

3D design is a highly specialized skill requiring mastery of many different design software programs (like AutoCAD). Generalist graphic designers may haven’t used these tools, so it’s important to work with experts who have this relevant experience. All of the designers on this list have a proven track record specifically with 3D, so you can be confident you’ll get the final deliverables you need.

Professionalism

Since skill isn’t everything when it comes to business, we also consider our designers’ professionalism when creating our rankings. Our top designers have excellent reviews, adhere to deadlines and have exemplary communication skills.

What to think about when hiring a 3d designer

Creating 3D designs requires specialized skills and familiarity with specialized tools. In order to find the best 3D designer for your project, you’ll want to consider things like:

  • Their level of experience with design tools. Does your prospective 3D designer have familiarity with Adobe Creative Suite and AutoCAD? Can they describe some of the processes they’ll use to execute your prospective 3D design? The more competent they are with industry standard tools, the better quality of your final product!
  • Their experience in your product niche. Someone who designs bikes probably isn’t going to be as familiar with architectural renderings. Consider the niche of the 3D designers you’d like to work with before moving forward with a project.
  • Your desired views/other needs. The finished product you might want for pitching to investors is probably different than if you’re using it in marketing mockups. Make sure that your target 3D designer is capable of creating the type of 3D design you’re looking for!
  • Your own budget. 3D design is oftentimes more complicated than two-dimensional graphic design projects. As such, you’ll need to align your expected budget with your desired output.
