We’ve been in touch with our contacts at the top 10 logo design companies to get all the insider information and news that is most relevant to you. To find out the highlights from the last few months read on:
European Expansion into the Netherlands
Our top ranked logo design service, 99designs, has announced they are increasing the number of countries they will have a presence in, by launching a Dutch version of the site. In order to cater to the Netherlands specifically, the service will be using the local currency and language.
While it was previously possible for Dutch users to visit the main 99designs site, this new localised version should allow the company to begin “helping even more entrepreneurs there source great graphic design work”, according to company CEO Patrick Llewellyn.

Logo Arena News:
Customer Service and User Experience ImprovementsIt’s been a busy few months at Logo Arena and the design company has some good news to announce to their customers. The firm has increased their number of customer service agents, and in turn reduced the response time from six hours to less than one hour. The client’s control panel has also been improved, making it more user friendly and intuitive.
In order to keep quality levels high and competitive with other firms, Logo Arena has also tightened up their designer selection process, and now only accepts 4% of applications. The community forums have also been improved to help encourage use and add value to the service. All in all a lot of improvements have been made at Logo Arena so if you haven’t checked them out recently, then perhaps it’s time you did.
