Designrider.com was founded in 2010 as an online realm where designers can find design assignments online.
Designrider aims to be a genuine, multidisciplinary platform where designers from all over the world gather to find new projects, show their projects to peers and exchange experiences on design-related matters. Designrider offers projects for product designers, graphic designers and spatial designers by placing so-called ‘riders’ online. These riders contain a set of requests or demands that a designer needs as criteria for making a design.

Brief business history
Designrider was founded by Veeel, an Amsterdam based co-creation agency. The founding partners Peter Veldhoven and Jelmer Riemersma, both graduates of Delft University of Technology, noticed that there were two groups that failed to find one another. Right from the start in 2006 Veeel met a huge need among companies and designers.
Since 2006 Veeel brought these groups together by working as a design agency with a large pool of designers. What started with 10 designers, rapidly grew to a 100, then a 1000 and it was time takes things a step further: Designrider was born.
