A new crowdsourcing site aims to create more opportunities for local designers.

450 Degrees is a new crowdsourcing website working to connect South African designers with design projects and other resources.

This online community creates a platform for users to work with South Africa’s many talented designers. Users can also choose from various custom designs for print, web, corporate identity or packaging design. The site also allows designers to register and review clients' needs, budget and timelines.

450 Degrees works by charging a project hosting fee as well as taking design commissions, while working to promote the work of young designers and help them build their portfolios.
