Simplifying the Hiring Process with Meaningful Gigs

Hiring skilled, diverse designers from Africa through Meaningful Gigs is as simple as 1, 2, 3!



Step 1: Matchmaking

We will schedule a 15-minute phone call with you to understand your needs and answer any questions you may have. After a need has been identified and clearly defined, we will send you a curated list of the best match(es) for the job(s), including bios, rates, and portfolios. You can then select the ones you like best and schedule an interview with them.


Step 2: Legal

Meaningful Gigs is registered in the US so you can get the benefit of skilled, diverse designers from Africa without the complexity of hiring designers internationally. Meaningful Gigs will handle all the logistics of the partnership, including compliance, taxes, and liabilities so you can focus on creating impactful designs with your new team member(s). There are no long-term contracts necessary, no retainers, and our fees are already built into the price of the designer fees so there are no additional costs to you.


Please note that this is the longest part of the process, so it is best to start this as soon as you know you’d like to work with us.

Step 3: Getting Started

Designers are already set up with infrastructure such as laptops, wifi, software, and an internal messaging system. In terms of time zones, you can arrange for your designers to overlap with your work schedule for a couple of hours every day. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with your designer then you can request a change within the first week of the job. However, many clients end up hiring additional designers, which you can easily do without going through legal again; similarly, you can easily extend a contract if you need additional time.
