Pricing – Draftss vs DesignOye
Draftss and DesignOye compete over similar packages known as unlimited graphic designing packages. The packaged services have done quite well before the clients and the concept has been successful in managing the design requests and the overall operations in the designing industry. Once the package has been subscribed, the client is allowed to make as many requests as required for the designing tasks and is attended to and completed as per the terms and conditions. Hence, the lower the pricing of the package, the higher is the value that can be extracted.
Draftss Subscription Cost
Draftss has a great pricing model. It lets you enjoy the flexibility as well as the weekly plans which makes it easier for the client to get the short term projects worked upon. It offers its clients to subscribe for Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly & specially customized Annual Plans.

DesignOye’s Subscription Cost
The prices of the packages at DesignOye are highly competitive in comparison with Draftss. The package for unlimited graphic designing at DesignOye starts at $369 per month.

Another packages names as smart package is priced at $569 per month. It also includes added designs like app designs, website designs, landing pages, etc. which clearly are neglected in the standard package. Thord and the final package offered by the service provider is the premium package which is priced at $000 per month. It includes 2 design requests at a time, a dedicated project manager, and animated gifs. Hence, the price of the package which is $999 per month at DesignOye is $398 per month at Draftss. Also, the pricing of the services on the higher side makes it difficult for smaller firms, startups, and enterprises with smaller budgets to afford their services. Although, they don’t charge any hidden costs and the structure is transparent.
Services Offered by Draftss & DesignOye

- Fast in its services
- Equipped with a very strong team of designers and coders
The service provider supports its clients with not just one designer or two but with a complete team of designers and a dedicated manager that works on the designs without any efforts from the client’s end. The client is presented with a number of design concepts before the team starts working on one and hence keeps up with the requirements of the client.
Portfolio – Draftss vs DesignOye
The portfolio is essential for the clients to judge a service provider and choose only the one that suits the needs and requirements of the clients. Thus, having a great portfolio makes it easier for both, the client as well as the service provider, to click a mutual point and get over a deal to work on the projects with confidence and trust,
Portfolio of Draftss
Draftss has developed a portfolio that is highly extensive & versatile. Draftss works on logos, packaging, branding, characters & illustrations, web & app UI/UX, merchandise, & a lot more which is showcased upon their portfolio. Each of the presented artwork is a masterpiece. Also, the work Draftss has done in the previous projects with the clients has been amazing enhancing the brand image and getting good feedback from clients. Not only the designing team at Draftss is highly reliable but the detailed development of the designs also adds to their value.
Portfolio Of DesignOye
DesignOye has worked on a variety of design categories and hence the portfolio is diverse and packed up with a number of types of different designs. However, the designs are fairly qualitative and might not be very standardized if the client has already worked with other premium service providers. But the portfolio being extensive gives a fair idea to the client on how is the service going to be delivered and what can be expected out of the designers.
Quality – Draftss vs DesignOye
Quality at Draftss
Draftss believes in producing great designs & not just good designs. Therefore, Draftss equips the clients and their tasks with highly specialized designers of the domain which makes the design come out as a masterpiece. The reviews & testimonials of Draftss also speak for them & their quality. Draftss also serves it clients with amazing customer support. Draftss collaborates with the clients over a number of platforms which makes it easier for clients to collaborate unlike other platforms. Keeping the clients updated and completely in the loop of the designing process makes it easy & reliable for clients to have the designers at their service. Draftss also let the clients avail the facility to talk to the designer over the voice call for better understanding and to deliver the best experience for the customer support throughout the process.
With a very huge experience in the designing industry, & a very strong team, the overall design quality & customer experience of the services provided by Draftss seems to be impeccable & distinguished.
Quality at DesignOye
DesignOye competes with the service providers which are very high on quality and possess brilliant designers. Hence, it becomes very essential for the service provider itself to be very much concerned about the quality it is offering to its clients. Thus, it has tried well to offer services and add on support for luring the clients and adding on to the quality of the services.
The designers however look skilled and good at designing from an initial look upon the portfolio, the quality is still not as competitive as the other premium designing service providers. Services are priced at a higher level as compared to Draftss when we talk about the quality of the services like dedicated project manager, app designs, web designs, etc. Also, Draftss provides a full fledged team of designers, however, DesignOye only offers this service for an agency plan with customized pricing model. Similarly, the service provide does not operate on a dedicated platform like every other premium service provider which again is a turnoff for the clients.
Design – Draftss vs DesignOye
Draftss and DesignOye claim to offer great designs – in both terms of quality as well as variety. However, lets have a sneak peek into the offering they have in their process of graphic designing and all the other services they have to offer during the process.
Design at Draftss
Designers at Draftss are experts at various things & giving sharpness & attention to designs are two of the major skills they possess. Designers from Draftss seem to pay more close attention to the details of the designs. Looking upon their portfolio, it becomes clear that there are highly refined particulars where you can see how much attention has been put into all the designs by the designing team at Draftss.
Every subscription package of Draftss also comes with an entire creative design team working for the clients. Thus, it becomes easy for the clients to have only the best designer for the task working on it and not someone who possess expertise in a different domain.
Design at DesignOye
DesignOye offers a great team of designers and managers to work with for the clients. The graphic designs service provider has come up with are fairly qualitative and good however lacks the premium outlook. Also, the service provider offers to equip only one designer with each client which might make it difficult for the specialized designer to work on the design category requested by the client.
With no dedicated communication channel and dedicated project managers for the initial two packages, clients might also face difficulty during the complete designing process. This makes it the designs also affected as the designer and the client might not be in sync with the only channel of support, that is email.
Development – Draftss vs DesignOye
Development is another major aspect of comparison for the two leading service providers. Draftss makes it easy for its clients to do more upon the same platform. It helps the clients on both the fronts of design as well as web development of the design. On the other hand, DesignOye seems to lack on the front of the development among several others.
Development at Draftss
Draftss not only designs apps & web UI/UX for startups, founders, entrepreneurs, & businesses but also helps in the development of the designed particulars. This feature is very unique to Draftss and can be found rarely with any competitor agency. Draftss works well on the critical factors of designing, speed, mobile responsiveness, & overall health of the digital platforms of its clients. Further, the list of services of Draftss helps the clients build upon the software programs like HTML/CSS, WordPress, Page Builders, & Elementor, among many others. Thus, providing the solution for the development of the designs & web platforms, Draftss has a big edge here over other similar service providers in the industry. A business may avail both the facilities from Draftss and may not have to look for two different options to get a design from one and get the development done from another.
No Development at DesignOye
DesignOye comes with a limitation, that is web development. Although DesignOye provides good designing services, it does not serve its clients with the web development of the web designs developed. Therefore, it becomes a little difficult for clients to expect more from DesignOye.
Process – Draftss vs DesignOye
Every business runs on hectic schedules and wasting time is no option for any businessman either. This is the major reason why the tasks of graphic designing and coding which requires extreme attention and carefulness needs to be outsourced.
The on-boarding process at Draftss is therefore very easy! One can go upon the website and fill up the on-boarding form with the subscription package of choice. Best thing here is that Draftss offers you a weekly plan which is rarely available with the competitors. Draftss will get back to you with your dedicated project manager and the design team. Further, do nothing else! Sit back, watch your ideas getting designed, & finalize whenever you think it’s what you want.
The process of on-boarding at DesognOye is similarly easy too. One can go upon their website and choose a monthly plan. Sadly, DesignOye has no weekly plans available. Next is to fill up the on-boarding form and start requesting your designs.
Draftss believes in making things easier for the clients and thus it has a channel for all and operates on a number of platforms. Therefore, one can use E-mail, Trello, Slack, WhatsApp, Telegram, and just about every other project management tool that you have been using OR the submission form by Draftss to submit your design tasks. Thus, Draftss makes the submission process very handy & easy for the clients.
However, DesignOye operates only through its limited channels – its email and direct contact to an account manager. Thus, it accepts the design request only via these channels. This process of task submission makes it a little less handy and easy for the clients to sub,it their requests and communicate more frequently.
The clients of Draftss are highly satisfied with the services and have been very positive about the graphic designs and development services they’ve been served with. It’s not necessary that the first design Draftss puts before you is the one you like. Therefore, Draftss has a policy to offer unlimited revisions. You don’t like it? No problem! Draftss will revise it.
DesignOye also offers to get as many revisions done as required. Although, the revision process takes additional time taking even longer to complete the task.
At Draftss, until the design is not satisfactory, the design is not finalized! The design is delivered in the most suitable format mentioned upon the platform through email, dropbox, or google drive.
DesignOye delivers all the designs as soon as they’re finalized but only through the email. They offer a fair choice of formats for the designs to be available in.
Communication – Draftss vs DesignOye
Better is the communication, better are the designs and the output files. With more, frequent, and open communication between clients and the designers, both ends are able to understand each other in a better way. Once the designers understand the requirement, it becomes very easy for the designs to be made exactly as per the requirement.
Communication at Draftss
Having one platform for collaboration with your team of designers plays a very important role in the smoothness of the design process and delivery of great designs. To provide ease and not confine the clients with limited options, Draftss offers its clients to communicate with the design team over a single chain of E-mails, Slack, WhatsApp, & a number of other project management tools. This plays a major role in keeping up with the expectations of the clients going ahead in the right direction in close coordination with the clients. The design team is highly responsive & quick to provide the required assistance. Customer support never fails to satisfy and always tries to deliver the expected value out of each package you choose. The expertise of the design team also helps the clients have their specific design solutions delivered on time making their experience better.
Communication at DesignOye
DesignOye only lets the clients communicate with the designers over the contact via the account manager or through email support. Therefore, one can only expect to be served via mail or you necessarily need to contact the account manager to coordinate with their team & go along the designing process with them. The team claims to have good customer support but sadly does not offer any means to talk to the designers through any other channel of verbal or textual form. This limitation is a major one and causes delay as well as more revisions to happen by increasing the chances of mistakes and errors.
Turnaround Time Per Task
More is the turnaround time per task, less design requests can be made and thus less value can be extracted out of the given package. Thus, minimum turnaround time becomes very critical, especialy for the services which are dependent on time like unlimited graphic designing.
Turnaround at Draftss
Draftss provides a realistic turnaround time for the most common design tasks and for other specific tasks, it depends on the complexity of the design. Although, Draftss does not take more than approximately 2-3 days on an average to finish most of the graphic design tasks, smaller tasks may be delivered even earlier. Simpler tasks take lesser time, complex tasks take more time. You can checkout the turnaround time for all types of tasks here.
Turnaround at DesignOye
DesignOye seems to take the turnaround time seriously and on priority which makes it state the importance clearly on its web platform. It says, the average turnaround time for the less complex designs is usually 24hrs and might increase for more complex forms of designs. Although they say that the service provider might surprise you with the same-day delivery, it is very unusual and rare with DesignOye.
Whitelabel – Draftss
White labeling services provided by Draftss is a big add on service for its partners. New businesses are often dealing strict budget and shortage of resources. This may give the firms two choices: first is to hire better designer and coders and bear extra costs or the second one which is to outsource the task to a firm which is already packed up with expert designers and coders. Thus, Draftss lets the partner firms use its design & development services with the partners’ mark upon the services. The services to the partners are offered at a very affordable subscription price. The entire team at Draftss works as a team of the partner before the clients with full dedication. This helps the client to have the efficiency & quality assurance of Draftss to bring goodwill for the partner with no heavy budgets and no extra efforts.
It is always a good idea to outsource while the partner firm gets ready to bring in the required resources and the team of designers. It helps to avoid the resources of the firm to get diluted by spending huge on the designers who possess absolute brilliance to design and work out the tasks without compromising on the quality of services like Draftss. Thus, partner firms needs to make no upfront investment, needs to go through no hiring process, and requires no design team. The partner just needs to serve the clients with just a very quick & highly affordable subscription!
Whitelabel – DesignOye
DesignOye does not let any client or individual use its services on the whitelabel. However, DesignOye has a got an affiliate program under which an individual can become a part of the representative of the service provider as an affiliate and offer graphic designing services on the behalf of the service provider.
The service provider offer a 15% commission to the affiliates for each of the referrals. One can become an affiliate by signing up on their website and becoming a DesignOye affiliate. The affiliate can use the name of the service provider to promote the services of the service provider and thus refer to clients.
What to Choose?
With all the services, parameters, and features of both the service providers in place, this review was partially competitive. Although DesignOye has tried its best to compete with Draftss in terms of cost and the quality of services as well, it has failed to a significant level as at a cost as low as Draftss, it has a very limited range of offerings than Draftss. It offers a dedicated project manager at its highest package prices at $999 per month however, Draftss does that at just $398 per month.
Draftss seems to make the process of communication highly smooth and easy by allowing the clients to communicate through a number of channels. Clients always have an option to talk to the team over a call which is not available with DesignOye.
In addition, Draftss allocate specific designers for specific tasks while DesignOye may compromise on it by allocating a single designer for all the tasks to cater for a client. Thus, the close attention & specific details Draftss & the designers cater to gives it an extra edge over DesignOye.
Due to more chances of mistakes and errors, a client might face more delay and time lag with DesignOye than Draftss which has a very open nature of communication. Because a number of businesses require quick and fast support for their regular upgrades and updates of the online portals, not receiving a task on time is a big turnoff for the clients.
The subscription packages of Draftss are not only low in process but are highly attractive due to their features like flexibility, weekly duration, and range of services offered. Therefore, the quick service and keeping up with the promises makes it a great choice for clients of diverse backgrounds and fields. Also, the wide range of services & very easy on–boarding with Draftss makes it a one-stop & easy solution for the business, startups, & entrepreneurs to go forth with their highly affordable & diversified subscription packages.
DesignOyeonly offers monthly plans while Draftss also offers weekly subscription packages. These packages tend to enhance the feasibility and cost effectiveness for the clients. Weekly subscription packages can be used to get designs quickly without holding on to the long-term packages being left unused for the rest of the time and thus stay a burden on the budget. A number of clients tend to fail to be able to get complete value out of their monthly packages because of the less requirement they have for the designs to be worked out.
DesignOye does not offer any web development services however Draftss has multiple web development service options.
