Crowdsourcing Isn't New.
But It's Definitely Improved.

Crowdsourcing isn't new. Companies have issued open calls for creative work for years. But this model can ignore the value of an agency partner. When clients are forced to direct their own work, the focus shifts to execution ahead of the big picture. Often, brand strategy takes the back seat. OSIGN gives clients the fruits of crowdsourcing, with the constancy of strategic support.
