Just like the service, the Design Pickle app is simplicity at its best. All the action takes place in the Make a Request tab. There are three steps to requesting a new design. In the first step, you'll enter the details of the design you need. You'll enter a name for your design, select the dimensions, name your target audience, and give a brief description of what you're looking for. Be as specific as possible to help the designer understand your vision. You can also provide links to similar designs for inspiration. Then, under Priority, you'll indicate how soon you'd like the design completed. Lastly, you'll enter all the formats in which you'd like your design to be submitted, such as JPG, PNG, and PDF. In the next step, you'll be asked to upload any photos you want to include in your design. If you'd rather use stock images, Design Pickle allows you to select free photos from Unsplash. Alternatively, you can click Find photos for me, and your designer will use appropriate pictures in your design—just be sure to mention what kind of photos you're looking for. The final step requires you to upload any assets your designer might need—logos, fonts, copy, and so on. Once you've completed all the fields, click Send to My Designer, and they will get to work on your request.

When your design is ready, review it and ask for revisions as you see fit. The Past Requests tab lets you review your latest design requests, requests in progress, delivered requests, and any drafts you may have created. You can also duplicate a past request.

While the software offers unlimited design requests and revisions to all customers, there is a limit to the number of designs your designer may be able to complete per month. How many designs can you expect? That depends on the number of Design Pickle Units, or DPUs, your plan contains. DPUs are the app's unit to measure creative output. The Standard plan comes with one DPU. Again, there is no fixed number of designs a single Design Pickle Unit might contain. One DPU might mean three social media graphics or one Google Ad, while two DPUs might mean four podcast covers or six social media graphics. In short, it depends on how complicated or simple your request is. If you require dozens of designs every week, you might want to add more DPUs to your account to increase the turnaround time for your designs.

Design Pickle is a great option for simple, one-off design requests for your business. It comes with all the frills of hiring a professional designer, but none of the hassle.
