Over beer and cheese the other day, Melissa told me about a company called 99 Designs, which offers an affordable way to get exactly the logo design (or web/icon/print/t-shirt design) you’re searching for. Basically, you hold your own “design contest” (prices for logo design start at $269, but you write your own “design brief” and decide on the “prize” amount you’re willing to shell out), and then dozens (even hundreds) of designers enter their submissions. You pick the one you like, and only pay if you’re happy with the result (as an added bonus, you also get the copyright to the original artwork).
Love this idea! Anyone worked with them before?
