Crowdsourcing for Graphic Designers – Come and Conquer!
 

Many of you might be quite familiar with crowdsourcing and its revolutionary impact on the graphic design world. Albeit controversial, it has proved to be an enormous success for both clients and graphic designers who are unable to transact on an individual basis. Crowdsourcing serves as a perfect intermediary between clients and graphic designers who need to transact in a simple and affordable manner.
Lately, Logo Design Guru, one of the leading names in logo design world has radically shifted from the custom-made logo designing to logo design contest. This firmly proves that the crowdsourcing trend is gaining immense popularity over conventional logo designing.

Below are few productive features which will help graphic designers progress with their creativity

 

1. Hundreds of projects launched:

Most graphic designers complain that most of the famous crowdsourcing websites are crowded with designers and the chance of winning the prize money is microscopic. This doesn’t get them the right exposure, leaving minimum chances of earning. Over at Logo Design Guru, there are more than 120 design projects awaiting talented graphic designers.

 

2. Earn up to $2500 on a Project:

The biggest prospect for graphic designers is that Logo Design Guru has a low designer:project ratio so there is a guaranteed surety that you can earn between $179 to $2,500. The more contests you participate in will multiply your earnings.

 

3. Guaranteed Projects:

The most exciting part of crowdsourcing with Logo Design Guru is that it provides guaranteed projects. This secures a graphic designer’s hard work and the client cannot steal a designer’s ideas or designs.

 

4. The field is wide open:

As I mentioned earlier, there is ample opportunities to vie for at Logo Design Guru. Since there are more projects than designers, your chance of winning is manifold. The field is wide open folks! So go ahead and pounce on this lucrative opportunity to earn yourself a name in the graphic design world.

    This “article” reads like a paid advertisement. Compared to your normal articles, this seems out of place. What’s the deal?

    I find these website sad. Those companies are making big bucks on the backs of the designers… I don’t understand why any real designer participates with those practices… you’ll get what 195 dollars for a logo design ? and u have a chance of what 1/10 ? that means u make a logo for 19.5 dollars. meaning u would only take 30min to create one … Do you realy want this to take over the graphic design world ? I’d preffer looking for a client that pays me what I deserve. and then mostly i only need to design one logo for at least double the reward you get on those sites…

    Why should designers have to enter a “contest” in order to find work? And do work on speculation? Its blows the mind how the graphic design business continues to cheapen itself. I don’t see any other profession taking this approach. Graphic designers are not laborers or drones. They are skilled innovative people with a unique ability to be creative. They shouldn’t be cheapened by low balling prices or gimmicks.

    It’s sites like ‘Logo Design Guru’ that are lowering the value of graphic design. Turning the industry into a slave market where talented designers are battling for, lets be honest, really low priced designs. All that’s going to happen if this trend grows, is that the value of our work, and sector, will plummet. Don’t support this crap!!!

    It reminds me that I got a logo work request few weeks back, later person who ordered the logo with me couldn’t answer details I needed, so he handled me to some other guy and asked me to say him that I am his personal designer staff. Later while discussing with client in messenger the logo he ordered was for $150 and the reality was I made it just for $5. He said he was very satisfied with the logo. I wonder how to make a rate of my work. I’m afraid I may miss my clients if I increase rate. Not sure what to do.

    I will not support these particular sites. I see the point of design contests for logos with companies and sports teams who have large fan bases and want to utilize the fan knowledge of their company or team. However, I refuse to work for free on the chance that a client may have bad taste. When are companies going to realize that building a relationship with a quality designer who can not only create your companies identity but can be there when you need to expand, make updates, etc. is best. To create the best logo possible requires company and market research. One thing is for certain, if the designer has a remote chance of not winning the money they are not going to spend the extra time to do the research that is required when developing a brand.

    Crowdsourcing sucks folks. Participate in it at your own risk. You are wasting your time and you might, MIGHT make a few hundred bucks per year. Your wasting time you could be spending with family or doing any number of more constructive things. You will never get compensated for that much wasted time. No spec, folks.

    Such a dilema….. As a cash-strapped design student with industry standard software this is potentially easy money, but in the long run I’m shooting myself in the foot… :s

    This article as well as that website design is sad! First of all it’s like elance site it brings many designers from overseas where $1 is actually worth a lot and you can live ok on $2.00 a week. How can American/Canadian designers compete with such low balling “logos” many of them are clip art symbols anyway and there’s no work shown with typography at all.

    If you want to be respectful portal for designers, I suggest you remove that article from your website and never mention about them ever again.

    It must be very sad for those designers who wasted thousands of $$$$ on getting their BA’s degrees in universities and now find “clients” who want to pay pennies for logos that might serve them for many years to come. Altho I’ve seen some concepts there taken from other logos. I personally seen 3 companies in my town who all 3 used the same logo! Boy was that entertaining

    There is no such thing as easy money in crowdsourcing. Too many people competing and even in the rare case that an actual good design is provided they hardly ever win. People running the contests have no design background and judge by their own taste. If you’ve been a designer for even a short time you know that peoples taste in design is horrendous.

    Crowdsourcing is a waste of time.

    Personally, I am quite on the fence regarding the use of a crowdsourcing site for a logo design. It is still a touchy issue for most designers who said that crowdsourcing is a no-no for obtaining a logo design. I have tried crowdsourcing before and I know the risks involved but it comes within the territory. But there are other no-frills logo design websites online such as logobee.com, logodesignstation.com, logoyes.com, etc. which are actually great in getting a professional logo design at a fraction of the price and minus the risks of crowdsourcing (plagiarism is one of them). Seeing that there are no consultation services, the price is significantly lower than that of conventional design firms.

    For instance, I have tried logodesignstation.com and the experience was indeed a positive one. I managed to get my business logo design at an affordable price and the turnaround time was great as well. Highly recommended. Although crowdsourcing for logo designs could be a bane for some, many find it to be a viable alternative to get a fast logo on the cheap. It all depends on the individual actually.
