Found out the company lies about the main specification of the subscription plan.

Design Task Group - Found out the company lies about the main specification of the subscription plan.
I was subscribed to Design Task Group and had a Silver account. The main reason to pick silver over bronze is to have two graphic designers work on your account instead of one. I was later informed by an anonymous source close to Design Task Group that there were never two designers on my account and that one person was given two aliases to pretend two designers were working on my account. He confirmed his story by quoting everything both designers did and said while I was communicating with them. I was also provided screenshots from collective chat rooms on UpWork where management would instruct designers on what to do in case a client upgrades his account.

Complete Sham of a Company

Design Task Group - Complete Sham of a Company
Company is led by a man named Dwight Benjamin Anderson, they pretend they are a serious design company and promise vetted designers with over 5 years of experience to their clients but in truth Dwight hires the lowest skilled people on UpWork (often with no experience) and intentionally misclassifies them as independent contractors to avoid tax fees. Because of the low design skill and knowledge they will mostly just steal generic design of the web and tweak them in a most unknowledgeable and awkward ways making them even worse and amateurish. And this is the company's day to day modus operandi. The whole operation is based on deceit — people on silver and gold accounts are promised 2 or more designers on their accounts but 99% of the time a same designer will get a new alias and pretend to be two or more different people to create an illusion you are working with multiple designers. There really isn't enough space to write all the bad things about Design Task Group. I urge you to look for so many better options available (working directly with a good freelance designer or websites like Design Hill). Design Task Group absolutely has no inner structure you will just be working with Dwight who, I assure you, will be lying through his teeth about everything. And your request will be left to the mercy of the "designer" and your "task manager"(either Dwight or the designer using an alias) assigned to you. I have attached image proof. Learn from my mistakes!
