Run a logo design contest
You can easily get a custom designed logo designed to meet your brief by running a
design contest or competition.
Logo competitions run for a set time and for a fixed reward. You set the time frame and budget for your design. During the competition, monitor progress and give feedback to designers via comments and favourites. Then at the end of the competition select the winning design.
What does it cost?
Prize money $ + 20%.
The budget is up to you, however there is a minimum budget (or prize value) of US$220. On top of that there is a 20% competition administration fee.
So The minimum cost to run a competition is US$220 plus 20% = US$264.
How many entries will I get?
Typically you'll get more than enough.
However we also GUARANTEE a minimum number of entries depending on the amount you're willing to offer designers. Obviously the larger the budget, the more attractive your design competition is to designers and the more entries you will receive.
We'll make some suggestions when you create your competition, but don't worry we'll declare all costs up front before we charge you a cent.
What if I get nothing I like?
At the end of the competition if you don't get an entry you'd like to use, you still get plenty of value.
Knowing what you don't like can be as valuable as knowing what you do like. Particularly when briefing a graphic designer. You can take a print out of all the entries to a local designer. This print out would be an invaluable resource to the designer when your briefing him/her, just so long as he's not copying a design.
Alternatively you may have found the designer you want to work with, even if their designs entered are exactly what you want.

"Thank you once again for the great service, a wonderful experience and the opportunity to have access to such a broad base of very talented people."
Greg McCrae (Client)

"I must state, that with all of the logo design companies I've used in the past, your service has been, by far, the best decision I made with my most recent logo. It was overwhelming (in a good way) trying to decide which direction to go with so many designs, but it really was a phenomenal experience, and I look forward to using the service again in the coming weeks. All the best."
