99designs launches French language site Featured

The world’s largest online graphic design marketplace, 99designs, has launched a localised French-language version of its site at 99designs.fr.

Announcing the launch of the site, 99designs President and CEO Patrick Llewellyn said the company had also hired a Country Manager for France in Paris and will now offer French-language support to its customers in the region.

“The moves signify important next steps in 99design’s European growth initiatives following its August acquisition of multilingual European creative design marketplace 12designer and September launch of 99designs.de, the company’s first non-English language site.

“As one of the cornerstone economies of the European Union, France is already an important market for 99designs. One of our key strategic goals this year has been to introduce a French-language site, on-the-ground local leadership and support for the French market.

“We’re very excited this is now a reality. Under the capable leadership of our new country manager in Paris, Siham Belouadheh, we are well positioned to learn, adapt and aggressively grow our services in France.”

Llewellyn said Belouadheh joins 99designs with experience in public relations, business development and marketing management, most recently leading marketing and business development activities for Kaplan in France and Belgium.

“As country manager for France, she will oversee 99design’s French expansion from Paris and be tasked with growing awareness and adoption of the design marketplace among French designers, business owners, and local technology entrepreneurs and startup communities.”

Llewellyn said 99designs had hosted more than 175,000 graphic design contests for small businesses, startups and other organisations around the world since its founding in 2008.

“In the same period, the company has paid out more than $43 million to its community of 190,000 graphic designers from around the world. European customers currently account for more than 15 percent of design contests on 99designs.”
