Have you ever thought that you can get a logo designed for $50? No? Than maybe you know already that you can have get it done for $20. No kidding. I checked myself. I was afraid to go for $20, but I ordered mine for $50. Check www.elance.com Of course, if you are a multibillion valued public company, then you should go to Landor Associates or other creative guys, pay hundreds thousand dollars and sleep well. But, if you are a startup or a small company, Elance is the best option. There is actually another service – Odesk, but I did not like the user experience and interface there. So I chose Elance. Everything works pretty simple – you just register account, connect your PayPal account for ease of payment processing and start creating jobs.
Having created a job and put a job description and you will start receiving offers from freelancers across the globe. Some offers will be amazing. Really. The level of some freelancers is great. I myself went through this process. I created a number of jobs: texts for the web-site, info graphics, powerpoint templates, brand book elements, logo, etc. The quality of work was super fine. The designers were very responsive, talented and professional. And they were very quick. Everything went well. I became an Elance addict and I highly recommend to use this platform.
