Patrick Llewellyn, 99designs

Patrick Llewellyn CEO, 99designs Patrick Llewellyn joined 99designs, the world's largest graphic design marketplace, in 2009 after a decade advising Australian technology and media companies at NexTec Strategic Capital. In 2010 he moved to San Francisco to open a U.S. office and oversee U.S. and international expansion.

In July 2013, Llewellyn oversaw the launch of Swiftly, a new site and service for quick graphic design projects. To date, 99designs has hosted more than 245,000 graphic design contests and paid out more than $60 million to its community of 250,000 designers around the world.
