the Netherlands (2009)
Crowdsite started as a spin-off of a software development company in 2009 and was founded by Roel Masselink (age 23). We started in the Netherlands with the website ontwerpen-voor-geld.nl; it was an instant hit and quickly it became the largest design website in the Netherlands. A dream was born, quickly we realised that the future of the site should be across borders.
In 2011 we started our first international adventure with logo-design.de. A lot of work was needed to be done to create multilingual website with a local experience in mind. After two years of testing and developing the website was ready to expand world wide.
