Mary D gets a logo

Our little girl is growing up! Just look at her cute new logo!

Here’s the story of how this came to pass …

I’ve used the site Fiverr.com once before for logo creation. The name comes from the fact that you can get freelance work done for as little as $5.00, and that’s just what I set out to do. In the end, I spent a bit more than that, but it was still very affordable and the resulting image is something I could have never created on my own.

The first step in the process is to determine which designer you want to work with. This can be a bit overwhelming!! There are so many to select from, and so many of their sample images are high quality. I looked around a bit and finally settled on krishankj from India. They had great reviews from over 1,000 customers, and I liked the style of their art. They offered several pricing packages, one of which was at that magic amount – $5.00. One other thing they provided was a link to their sample work on Flickr, and I found an RV logo in the mix! Sold!!

Next up with placing my order. I chose the Basic ($5.00) option – one logo in two formats – JPG and transparent PNG, one revision, and the source AI file. But I didn’t have the will power to stop there (and I’m happy that I didn’t). The order screen has add-on options, and I decided it would be worth it to have the logo in layered PSD format as well. Fiverr charges a $1.00 processing fee per order, so my total came to $16.00. I was prompted to supply the desired text for the logo, information about my “company” and a link to my website, if I had one, any similar logos I like, concepts or ideas I had for the logo, and color scheme ideas. I sent a link to this photo of Mary D …

A day passed and I had my first logo to proof.

I was SO.EXCITED!! I think the level of detail they including from the photo was great! It really looked like Mary D! Since it was a proof, it had a watermark. I asked for a change to the font and added another $5.00 (+ $1.00 processing fee) option to get a rectangular version of the logo. Total spent was now $22.00.

Another day passed and I had what I wanted – a square and rectangular logo in multiple formats with source files which I can edit as desired. You might noticed I slimmed down the logo to just the RV and added her name for the small version in the top left of the blog. I’m one happy girl when I can do my own thing with it!

Is it perfect? Not really. There are small things that could be cleaned up, but for the price I paid, I’m super happy with it! And I think Fiverr.com is a great site for logo creation!
