    Default Graphic Design and Business card Design in India

    Mods: not sure where to post this...

    Had a friend of a friend who showed me an amazing company logo and business card they had designed online by someone in India. apparently it cost $4.99 and took less than a day to get it.

    Ive been Google searching this but cant seem to find the same type of cheapo service.

    Anyone done this before? Got a link or a name I can chase?

    Thx

    Fiverr. I'd bet five bucks the logo is a knock-off of another logo. Do a Google image search, you'll find it there. You always get what you pay for and deserve. I used fiver for a logo four times, all four I rejected as they were not in any way original, just a knock-off and one of the four was knocked off a trademarked logo. Nice trouble area for sure.

    Yeah, those overseas graphic "designers", are all just stock logos, or stolen. Makes it difficult for people like my wife where her clients are saying "Well, I can get the done in India for 50cents a piece, why are yours so much?"

    It's fine if you don't care, but you gotta pay if you want truly custom.

    This was my first thought when I saw the logo the designer had made for my friend of friend but never asked as she seemed to be pretty business savvy. Hopefully this isnt the case because they are about to go big on their start up.

    I actually paid 4 designers the 5 $ fee and one guy 25$, asked them all to do the same logo. Hopefully something good pops up. If not, lesson learned.

    will report back with results.

    Any further thoughts on this? I have been looking for a logo, and I have some ideas. Current favourite fiverr person does hand drawn sketches, which seems like it could work.

    I have some graphics guys in India that I could introduce guys to. Not affiliated with me or anything, just a good guy that I know from running my own businesses there.

    My wife is a graphic designer and pays a ridiculous amount to use pictures. I get the whole thing about saving money but you put people in town out of work when they are just trying to make a living.

    "Wix.com is only $20, can you price match?"

    I've used fiverr countless times, but never for a logo. Plenty of good designers around.

    Many people don't want to put their faith in one designer though, or they feel they want options. I get that. For them I recommend a contest type site like 99designs. Put up a few hundred US dollars, get a few dozen designers submit drafts, pick your favourite and go from there.

    In my mind, this is still "affordable" logo design. True artists don't work cheap, and the good ones are worth the premium.

    99designs is the same regurgitated BS as fiverr.... I know this for significant direct experience.

    Doesn't matter when 99% of Calgary's "Design Studios" and "Creative Agencies" just use premade templates from Envato. So much of the net is regurgitated.

    I've had luck with 99designs in the past. Never had a project with 0 good entries.

    The next time you do a 99designs, do a reverse image search

    I will. Maybe I just got lucky I've only used it (and similar sites) about a dozen times.

    Have been recently in discussions with someone from fiverr for a graphic design package. Chose someone who didn't seem like a shady pakistani web-rip-off. Did some back and forth with them, got a detailed quote for my needs, and it was a lot more than $5, which didn't surprise me. However, I have found two local options that are actually pretty similar prices, and I will be going with one of them.
