My second blog post will describe my experience of purchasing a new logo for my company from 99designs.com. Got the site recommended by a colleague who also works as a freelance developer.
In summary I was quite pleased with the designer-purchaser workflow, the results and the price level. I selected the second cheapest option of $499 which in the end provided me with 355 different logos to select from. However, many of these were duplicates and adjustments from my feedback.
The site lets designers provide designs to you via a design contest. You put in a designer price which the winner of the contests receives after your approval.
The contest consists of these four stages:
- Qualifying round (4 days)
- Select finalists (up to 4 days)
- Final round (3 days)
- Select winner (up to 2 days)
