A great crowdsourcing source service for basic design

This week I’ve created a new logo for my consulting/training co (established 2001 before SmartInsights became my main thing) which was in need of an update. Or rather a designer I’ve never met created it!

When I created it originally I’m embarrassed to say it was created in .ppt so it was desperately in need of a refresh.

Today it’s much easier to find someone through a service like 99designs. Set a brief, stump up a fee (£195) to be awarded to the best entry and you get around 80 entries, several from each designer, so you can iterate through approaches you like over a week (or shorter).

You can set a higher fee for more entrants – this is what we did for SmartInsights, but not sure you need to.

Hopefully this will be useful for someone reading this – I think more complete designs are possible too.
