I did a lot of research, including websiteplanet. I was really nervous because of the negative reviews on most of these crowdsourcing sites. I ended up choosing 99designs because I found out a colleague also used them for their logo. I chose the cheapest option $299. Within 10 minutes I began receiving designs. I ultimately received about 170 over the week. The designers were very responsive and modified the images at request. About 15% of the logos were SPECTACULAR and for $299 I would have been happy with any of them. In the end, I received exactly what I hoped for - files and all. I seriously couldn't be happier with the outcome.
Logos at 99 designs are not created with unique ideas. I have examples to show that copied and 20-30% modified logos are being submitted by the designers over there. They depict that they have higher standards for a designer to allow him/her to work on 99designs. While when you see the designs submitted in contests, the submissions are not of top-quality rather they are basic or medium level.
I participated in a website design contest long ago. Another designer 60% copied my design and made an entry into the same contest and won the prize.
A good site for finding a designer. My work colleague and I launched our project and urgently needed a designer with taste, we came across this service, the cost and terms were arranged, we agreed and got an excellent job on time. Thank you very much!
My new project required a logo. I have been familiar with this service for a long time, once they drew me a logo for one of the projects. For a new project, it was done on time, efficiently, let's look at the reaction of customers with this logo :)
I was shocked by the work of technical support. They responded to my request for about 3-4 days, which is a very long time by my standards. I hope the authors of the project read the reviews here, correct this point, otherwise it is just inconvenient to use this service.
They are a scam, they pay "designers" very little and they just copy logos from the internet. Logos are copyrighted, most of them from free logo generators or free templates. They have refused to refund. Do not buy you are better finding a local artist.
The service is quite convenient, I talked with the support guys and discussed every important moment for me. Then they named the terms and cost and started working. We managed to do it by the time, they asked if I was happy. I got what I wanted, thank you!
I have to do a job to leave a comment about that company. I have never done business. I'm wondering and doing research. When you read the other comments, the downsides come out. I read your writes. I got some information at the end of your detailed research. Thank you. I am a Carpet designer too.
