Our Story

Freelancehour was started by the same team at 48hourslogo – a popular logo design contest website that has produced logos for more than twenty-thousand small businesses. We knew that our customers needed help with things other than logo design. We built FreelanceHour and invited a small group of freelancers to offer the quality services our customers need.
