ProofHQ

What is ProofHQ?

If you’re not familiar with ProofHQ, it aims to make the process of design review and approval much easier for everyone involved. Using ProofHQ you can create proofs from a variety of file types, get feedback from others, and ultimately get the design approved in a more efficient manner. With ProofHQ reviewers and designers can leave comments and feedback in an organized fashion that is more efficient than emailing back and forth.

ProofHQ

ProofHQ has a number of different plans in order to meet the needs of various freelancers and design firms. Pricing ranges from a free plan to $499 per month for a corporate plan. Freelancers and small design studios have several low-cost options to choose from that will provide an adequate number of proofs and storage space. Each plan comes with a 14 day free trial (no credit card or contract required).

The Giveaway:

ProofHQ is giving $500 in credit to five different winners. As a point of reference, the Solo plan (60 proofs per month and 1GB of storage) goes for $29 per month. The $500 in credit would equal almost a year and a half of usage on this plan.

To enter the contest, please leave a comment on this post completing the following statement: “Good design is. . . ” So be creative and share your own opinions on what defines good design.

On Monday, May 18th the people from ProofHQ will select the winners and this post will be updated. Please leave a valid email address with your comment so we can contact you if you win.

Good luck!

    Good design is barely achieved by many and created wisely by few. It becomes good when it shows what’s behind and feels close to its target while allowing them to make a good use of it and not complicating user’s compatibility, standards and usability.

    Kerigm,

    interesting choice I used to work for the Anglican Diocese of Montreal. I can tell you that it is not uncommon for the minister to wear both hats. However, one is a much higher calling – good luck with your choice.
