As you can probably tell if you have visited here before the site and logo look a little different now. I was getting frustrated with the slowness of the old Squarespace template I was using, the fact that you could really only see one image at a time annoyed the old picture editor in me and I wanted something which would make the viewing experience a lot quicker.
Along with that I gave the website fiverr.com a go. I'd heard good things about it from others and was more than a little curious as to whether it would live up to the hype. Not wanting to blow all of this months £43.68 worth of Alamy sales in one go I kept it simple and went for a logo design.
When I first heard about the site I was a little skeptical. Both for the de-valuing of work side of things and also that it was just a scam.
After thinking about it for a while, and my own combined need of a logo alongside the very real situation of not being able to afford a brand overhaul I took the plunge and found a very accomplished graphic designer to commission.
Fiverr isn't strictly true, yes the initial task cost $5. But once I added in a transparency plus high res files it ended up being $20. Seeing as the task would have taken an accomplished designer no more than 15 minutes it's not as bad a deal on their end as I previously thought.
Let me know what you think of the logo if you like and if you've had any good fiverr experiences?
