In the industry which is as wide as graphic designing and web development, a number of leaders have gained huge limelight before the clients and the target market. However, it is even more interesting to see how young and newer agencies have successfully developed their client base and are offering great services to their target market. Also, the newer agencies are now competing with the leaders of the industry and offering some competitive offerings to the industry clients. Tucango is one such service provider which is relatively young and new in the graphic design industry. It just came into the market in 2016 and has been providing its designing as well as web development services since then. In this review, we will explore the competitive parameters of the young and energetic Tucango and compare the aspects and scope with the great Draftss.
Both the firms have their leading offering in outsourcing the domains of graphic designing and web development. The service providers offer lucrative packages to serve the clients and provide value through subscriptions. Graphic designing is the newest addition to the service list of the Tucango and it is interesting to see that it is already competing in the arena which has the most number of highly qualified competitors in the industry. The arena is unlimited graphic designing services.
We will compare the two service providers based on their common competencies. Therefore, the evaluation will be based upon the critical parameters like the respective portfolio of the two service providers, ease of reaching out to these agencies & the process of designing, the quality of designs, turnaround time, as well as upon the services offered by the two.
Draftss – Overview
Draftss is an unlimited subscription graphic design & coding service. The remote Graphic Design & Code team can be hired on the go by founders, developers, startups, freelancers & agencies. Draftss delivers you designs on subscription instead of your business hiring full-time in-office Designers & Developers. Therefore, it saves money, time, and resources. Further, the subscriptions start at just $89 per week. In addition, a number of reviews have continuously been backing the quality of its services, Draftss has been flexible, consistent, and very quick for its clients.
Draftss looks forward to becoming a one-stop-shop for all the designing and development solutions and thus caters to a very wide range of services. It allocates highly specialized designers for each of the specific tasks. With a number of options to offer, Draftss comes out to be a great choice for designing and developing tasks.
Tucango – Overview
Tucango has been in the industry of digital products since 2016 but is even newer to the industry of graphic designing and web development as these services were added to the list later after the launch of the service provider. The firm has gained good rapport in the market before its clients and has got some good testimonials to flaunt over the website. However, the fir is relatively new in the domain of graphic designing and thus has less of the designing aspect.
Tucango comes with features like real-time support, unlimited revisions, programming, dedicated designers, and a dedicated telephone extension. It also has got a fair mix of portfolios which makes it look good at the first look at least.
Pricing – Draftss vs Tucango
A number of competitors who look forward to competing with Draftss have to realize that one of the core competencies of Draftss is the highly lucrative and flexible pricing options it offers. Pricing is one of the most crucial parts of the services which are based on the subscriptions as the packages are time-dependent.
Also, when we talk about the graphic design industry, subscription-based services are everywhere now. On the cake, flat monthly rates and other universal services have also made a cherry out of it. Finally, it all boils down to how competitive the monthly fee is. So which one is more affordable in terms of cost:
Draftss Subscription Cost
Draftss seem to have great pricing that beats the pricing of every other unlimited graphic design alternative. It also offers flexibility for you to subscribe for Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly & specially customized Annual Plans to their customers. Draftss seems to offer a great quality of work as compared to their super affordable pricing.
Above all, Draftss offers unlimited tasks & revisions, a dedicated team of managers & designers, human illustrations, web & app UI/UX, & much more at just $89/week. Additionally, for specific designing needs for businesses, Draftss comes with a number of more packages. Draftss a better as well as easy to go service for established businesses as well as startups because of its wide range of packages for different needs.
Tucango’s Monthly Subscription Cost
Tucango has tried to minimize its pricing to the lowest and has also been successful in doing so to a good extent. The package at Tucango starts at just $390 which makes it competitive. The plan offers unlimited designing requests for the given subscription, unlimited revisions, files with source, as well as it tries to have a quick turnaround time, which is not mentioned though.
The second plan by Tucango is priced higher at $780 and comes with some additional features to the first package it offers. The additional service includes real-time support, priority to the requests, dedicated telephone extension, and other similar services. However, the prices thus go higher in comparison with Draftss when we talk about the range of services, Draftss also offers a team of designers which Tucango does not. Also, there are no flexible or short-term packages that Draftss offers for all its clients which makes Tucango less preferable against Draftss.

Portfolio – Draftss vs Tucango
When a client visits you, your work reflects what is to be offered and delivered. Thus, a portfolio becomes very critical to impress clients and acts as a sample of the work of the team of designers and web developers. Having a broad mix of the portfolio also becomes important to give a holistic view of the complete range of the services.
Portfolio of Draftss
Draftss seems to have a more extensive & versatile portfolio list. Because of the wide range of services they provide, Draftss has a very extensive portfolio to look upon. Comprising of logos, packaging, branding, characters & illustrations, web & app UI/UX, merchandise, & a lot more, the portfolio also tends to grab the attention and each of the artwork is a masterpiece. Also, the work they’ve been doing with their clients has been amazing & has gained positive feedback. The detailed development of the designs adds to their value & the designing team can thus be relied upon with the designing tasks.
Portfolio Of Tucango
Tucango is very new to the industry of graphic design. Hence, expecting a very wide mix of the portfolio from Tucango is not fair. However, with all of its past work displayed on the portfolio over the online platform, Tucango seems to have a fair quality of the designs but a limited variety of designs. At first look, it looks bright and colorful. However, looking at the designs closely, the attention paid to the details seems to be falling short of the required level. Although there is much for the Tucango to work upon with a number of more clients to have a broad and required level of the portfolio to compete with Draftss, the portfolio as of now might not very enough attract clients,
Quality – Draftss vs Tucango
Quality at Draftss
The team at Draftss comprises expert designers & coders. Driven by the motto of producing great designs & not just good designs, the reviews & testimonials of Draftss speak for them & their quality. With amazing customer support, a very huge experience in the designing industry, & a very strong team, the overall quality & customer experience of the services provided by Draftss seems to be impeccable & distinguished.
What brings out the best in the services of Draftss is that the service provider also allocates highly specialized designers for the tasks. This further makes each of the tasks become a masterpiece and delivers the maximum value to the clients.
Quality at Tucango
Tucango has good designers as per their claim however the portfolio of the firm falls short of the work to display their skills and brilliance. Also, the quality of the service by Tucango is very basic and flat as per the trending facilities to make the experience of the clients rich and smooth in the industry. However, the facilities provided by the service provider are just enough to satisfy a basic designing experience and thus it has found its place in the industry.
But to compete with a service provider as experienced as Draftss, the basic quality of services is too little of a deal to win over. Tucango comes with no prescribed turnaround time for the design requests, it has got no dedicated dashboards to manage the complete process, the range of the designs is less, and it equips only one designer to a client compared to the team of team designers equipped with each client at Draftss
Design – Draftss vs Tucango
Draftss equips all its clients with full-fledged designing teams to design their respective requests with complete attention and detailing. Tucango on the other side has dedicated designers to work on the specific design requests. However, to have great designs much more is required than just the designers. Let’s have a look.
Design at Draftss
However, designers from Draftss seem to pay more close attention to the details of the designs. Therefore, in several designs, if you inspect closely the respective portfolios, you can see how much attention the design team at Draftss put into all the designs.
Subscribing to Draftss gives you an entire creative design team working with you. Whenever you submit a design request, the project manager picks the right designer suitable for the job. This ensures that you get the specialized skill needed for the project.
Design at Tucango
Tucango has no much to offer as a service provider than just the designers which become one of the major challenges for the service provider to offer more to its clients and empower them to have more with less. One of the most important aspects of the service provider to make not just good design but great designs is the resources possessed b the service provider kept at the disposal of the clients to be used and make a great experience for them. However, Tucango being a very new and young service provider in the industry, lacks the number and quality of resources to be availed by the clients and thus make the absolutely great and brilliant.
Tucango also does not have enough variety and diversity of the services in either of its verticals of graphic designing and web development which makes its prices a little more to ask for when Draftss can provide a lot more in a package that is priced equal to the lower package of Tucango.
Development – Draftss vs Tucango
Draftss is a very powerful and absolute competitor when it comes to web development, which makes it easy for its clients to do more – both on the front of design as well as the development of the design. However, like most of the other service providers in the industry, Tucango lags behind in the front of web development.
Development at Draftss
From designing apps & web UI/UX for startups, founders, entrepreneurs, & businesses, to the development of the design & bringing the form into reality – Draftss does it all. This feature thus makes Draftss a one-stop-shop for all the needs of the businesses. In addition, the team is highly skilled & the development range is huge. From the critical factors of designing, speed, mobile responsiveness, & overall health of the digital platforms of its clients, the experts at Draftss lets you have the best digital platforms with a wide range of solutions to choose from. Further, with software programs & development upon technology like HTML/CSS, WordPress, Page Builders, among many others, Draftss has a big edge here over other similar service providers in the industry.
Development at Tucango
Tucango has definitely equipped itself with one of the very rare qualities of the design and development industry. Web development is not very easy to be found in many of the service providers’ service lists. However, just having the feature of web development can make Tucango win over the other small players in the industry, but Draftss comes with a very wide variety of the service in the vertical of web development and thus makes it very powerful against other competitors offering similar services.
Tucango displays its ability to make a one-page website and a custom solution website. It does not keep itself before the customer for its variety of technologies it works upon itself and thus makes it a very least preferable option to choose for any web development tasks which has specific and very complex requirements to cater.
Process – Draftss vs Tucango
It’s something very usual for entrepreneurs & marketers to run on hectic schedules. Because a number of them won’t have time to go through searching, interviewing, & hiring freelance graphic designers, they prefer a quick & uncomplicated onboarding process.
The on-boarding process at Draftss in one small statement – It’s easy! In other words, what you need to do is to go up on their website, fill up their onboarding form, & get back to you! Do nothing else, sit back, watch your ideas getting designed, & finalize whenever you think it’s what you want.
Tucango at the same time also offers a simple & straightforward onboarding process. Firstly, you need to choose and subscribe to a plan on their website, the team connects with you over the Email, and gets you started!
For the clients on board with Draftss, the service provider follows a simple & very smooth process. To cater to the ease of communication, Draftss has a channel for all. Therefore, you 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. This makes the submission process very handy & easy for the clients of Draftss.
The process with Tucango for submitting the tasks is rather unclear after looking upon their online web platform and there is much ambiguity on the same. However, considering they do not have a dedicated dashboard, they would usually accept requests via email.
Draftss gives you revisions until & unless you’re satisfied with the design upon your screen. You don’t like it? No problem! Draftss will revise it.
Similarly, with the unlimited graphic design services package, Tucango also offers unlimited revisions of the designs.
At Draftss, it is a simple process that the two agencies follow to any doubt anyone has with the designs. The process is – until the design is not satisfactory, the design is not finalized!
Tucango at the same time also claims to offer unlimited revisions before finalizing the design until the client is satisfied.
Communication – Draftss vs Tucango
If your communication with the designing team is smooth and effective, chances of making mistakes during the complete process of designing decreases, and the efficiency of workflow increases making the designing quick and smooth. This saves time and lets you make more requests for a given subscription.
Communication at Draftss
Having one platform where you can monitor the projects & communicate with the assigned designer per project is a plus. Therefore, Draftss lets you communicate with its design team over a single chain of E-mails, Slack, WhatsApp, & a number of project management tools. This keeps the communication seamless & smooth. The team is highly responsive & quick to provide the required assistance. The expertise of the team lets the clients have their specific solutions on time & hence shows an excellent customer support feature.
Communication at Tucango
Tucango prefers to speak and mention not much on its web platform about the communication channels it offers to communicate upon with the clients. However, it does not have a dedicated dashboard to manage the workflow and no dedicated project management tool for the designers to collaborate with the client. Thus, the only means to communicate for the request is an email which is preferred by many in the designing industry. However, the service provider also provides a great option to talk to the designers via dedicated telephone extension with its second package priced for extra dollars (probably the telephone bill, as there is nothing significant it offers additionally).
Turnaround Time Per Task
The turnaround time of any service provider is one of the most important factors to analyze & judge it upon. Especially when it comes to unlimited graphic designing services, faster is the turnaround time, more number of the designs can be expected by the service provider.
Turnaround at Draftss
Draftss provides a realistic turnaround time for the most common design tasks from illustrations to logos that gives you the information you need before you even pay for the service. When you submit the design brief your project manager checks if all the essential details are present in the design brief and provide you with an ETA for delivery. Depending on the complexity of the design, it takes approximately 1-2 days on an average to finish most designs. Simpler tasks take lesser time, complex tasks take more time. You can checkout the turnaround time for all types of tasks here.
Turnaround at Tucango
Tucango does not speak much about its turnaround time anywhere on its web platforms and reviews. However, it claims that it is pretty quick and fast in making the requests delivered to the clients with utmost efficiency. They also have a service of making the requests delivered to the clients on a priority basis via the second package which can help decrease the extended time but have to be paid extra for.
Whitelabel – Draftss vs Tucango
Not just for clients but Draftss has its doors open for the ones who want to work in the same domain. White labeling services provided by Draftss is a big add-on service for its partners. The services provider lets the clients use its design & development services with the partners’ mark upon the services by staying backstage of the show at a very affordable price. The entire dedicated team at Draftss works as a team of the partner before the clients & works with the same efficiency & quality to bring goodwill for the partner.
While your firm gets ready to bring in designers who have absolute brilliance to design these particulars, it’s always a good idea to get it outsourced without compromising on the quality of services & without diluting the resources for your growth. Draftss makes it very easy & affordable for the partner companies to offer the services into the market with just no investment, no hiring, no design team, & just a very quick & highly affordable subscription!
Whitelabel – Tucango
Tucango is very new to the graphic designing industry and does not offer all the range of designing services and let alone be the white labeling or affiliate programs. Tucango hence does not offer any white labeling services to any entity and thus has only the way of subscription to provide its services.
What to Choose?
This review between Draftss and Tucango was not much of a competitive review and hence was very easy to analyze and choose from. Tucango is a very new entrant in the graphic designing industry and hence has a lack of range, services, experience, resources, and portfolio pieces to show. However, on the other side is Draftss which is highly experienced, has a very wide range of services, a very vast and diverse portfolio, and resources for the clients to enjoy and have a very rich service experience.
Tucango limits its channels of communication to email and calls only making it less handy to collaborate for a longer period of time. However, Draftss also allows you to communicate through a number of channels making it very easy and a seamless process to coordinate and converse. Clients also have an option to talk to the team over a call. Tucango clearly fails at this point.
In addition, Draftss has a full-fledged team of designers and a dedicated project manager to equip clients with their specific requests where it can allocate specific designers for specific tasks. Thus, the close attention & specific details the services provider & the designers cater to gives it an extra edge over the competitor. Tucango however allots only one designer for each client with no dedicated project manager making it difficult to have a seamless and smooth experience for the client.
One of the major problems a client may face would be the limitation of the range of services by Tucango. At every step and opportunity with Tucango to have a better service provider, a limitation makes it a difficult choice to be chosen.
Tucango slightly has a better chance to cover up over the other competitors who do not offer web development services by offering the same however the services are very basic in nature and are often not required. Therefore, 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.
Draftss also offers weekly subscription packages which enhance the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of 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.
