Professional logo design in this day and age is absolutely underrated. Startups really don't see how vital and lucrative a custom logo design is for their business. And this is the reason I will lay out some common sense realities explaining to you precisely why you shouldn’t pay five bucks for your business logo design and why your company logo design is not something you should mess with.
Here are 5 reasons why you should invest in a professional logo design and not in a fiverr-5-bucks cheap logo design:
- A custom logo design is the image of your business, it’s the very first impression potential customers get of your company.
- A professional logo design needs to be original and not some rip off because that’s what you get when you pay low dollars.
- A logo design needs to stand the test of time.
- A company logo design should look… professional.
- A professional logo design is the starting point of your whole corporate image.
Knowing all this it still amazes me that in 2016 most of the startups out there still use ugly overused cheap logo designs to represent their business. I mean c’mon, are you trying to fail from the get-go? Aren’t you tired of small pointy people running around in circles? Cheap logo design actually hurts your business!
People at Crowdspring have a good healthy stance about this.
So here comes the most asked question, how much does a custom logo design cost?
It’s entirely up to the designer, simple as that. A professional logo designer should be able to value their work and offer customized quotes depending on a multitude of factors including the project, the client and the complexity of the work done. Each customer has different needs, some projects take a few days while others may take up to one month to complete.
I’ve had complex projects for medium to big companies where research alone took several days because competition was high. You bet they’ve been charged more for their company logo design than an aspiring artist looking for his first book cover design.
All things considered, choose a professional logo design versus a cheap logo design if you care about your business and your success.
You buy cheap, you look cheap!
