Anything You Want For ONLY Five Dollars!
Where Can I Get A Logo For Five Dollars? What Is Fiverr.com?
Fiverr.com is a website where you can choose from thousands of freelance creative artists, and freelancers that are willing to do almost anything you want for five dollars! Well, not ANYTHING.
My husband had someone hang 500 business flyers, for five dollars. MAYBE. The person who he contracted to hang them, said that he hung all 500 of them. I don’t really know how anyone could check.
However, if you are interested in work that can be proven, Fiverr.com has people that can do all of these things:
- Video & Animation
- Graphics & Design
- Programming & Tech
- Music & Audio
- Fun & Bizarre
- Online Marketing
- Writing & Translation
How Does It Work?
The way it works, is that you choose an artist, whose work that you like, and send them a request. I chose Hironan as my designer. His ad on Fiverr said, “I will draw your idea into cartoon style”.
I’ve never had a logo, or a banner for “The Vicki Winters Show,” and it was high time that I did. I figured, for five bucks, what did I have to lose?
I sent off an email to Hironan, wherever in the world, he might be.
“Hi, I am interested in a logo for my Blog…www.vickiwinters.com. I would like to see a B/W version and would order something in color if I like it. If you take a look at my site, there are pictures of my everywhere. I travel, I love tech, and I blog about food. I would like to be pictured with my “Vicki” microphone, perhaps at a table full of people and food, or maybe alone with an empty chair. Can you help? Vicki.”
I’d sent along some photos to give Hironan an idea, of what I was looking for, but I didn’t even know exactly what that was, myself.
Hironan gave me a price quote, which was a little more than five dollars…thirty to be exact. For five dollars I could have gotten just a photo turned into a cartoon style. I don’t know how he came up with that pricing, but I assume I could had negotiated a better deal.
Hironan’s first draft wasn’t too bad. Admittedly, this was not something I had thought of, but it was kind of cute.
However, it was not what I wanted.
A few emails went back and forth, while I tried to direct Hironan, in order to get the perfect logo.
I didn’t like the curved banner.
I only wanted Black, White, and Red.
I didn’t like the points on the banner.
Please change the font.
Make my hair less curly.
Hironan sent everything in both black and white backgrounds, as
I scrutinized every detail, as if I were an Art Director on a magazine shoot!
I think Hironan was starting to get sick of me, but he finally gave me what I wanted. It only took a few hours, of back and forth emails, and I think it turned out pretty cute!
After all of that, I realized that it wasn’t the shape that I needed, to use as a banner for my blog.
My stealthy, super trooper, designer Hironan, delivered the goods without a complaint (I have no idea what kind of bitching he was doing behind my back:-)
What do you think? Would you make a logo on Fiverr.com?
