Pros and Cons of 99 Designs

Using the resources available to you is important and helpful. But when it comes to creative work, knowing where to find a graphic designer is key.

If you haven’t heard of 99Designs, it’s a website (like Fivver) where you can hire a designer based on your project. Prices on the website vary based on skill set of the designer.

Pros of Using a Cheap Logo Service

The Website Offers Many Different Design Styles to Choose From - If you are looking for a specific design style, 99Designs offers this! You can choose from many different designers.

  • Fast Turnaround - If you are looking for a one-off design or a logo for an upcoming fundraiser, 99Designs is great for that. You get your design quickly and easily.

  • Cheap - If you are on a tight budget, 99Designs might be perfect for you. When you arrive on the website, you can narrow down your search to your budget.

Cons of Using a Cheap Logo Service

  • Not All Designs Will be Good - Basically, you get what you pay for. If you are looking for a designer that will listen to exactly what you are wanting, plus giving their expert opinion as well, 99Designs might not be for you. When you hire a professional designer, or design team, you will receive the expert knowledge that comes with the design. They have your best interest in mind, and want to make sure you represent your brand appropriately to get the best results.

  • You Won’t Get File Formats You Need – Every business is going to need different versions of their logo in different colors and different file formats for different purposes. For example, the file format of your logo that you will need to include on a social medic graphic is different than the file format for ordering company apparel or creating large adverting, such as large billboard signage or vehicle wraps. Cheap logo websites charge extra for additional file formats, whereas a graphic designer is going to provide you with all of the file formats you need up front.

  • You Might Not Get Revisions - Revisions are so important when it comes to creating the perfect design for your brand. When you hire a professional designer, or design team, you will always know the exact revisions that come with the price of the design.

  • The Website Takes Some of the Profit from the Designer - Creatives in general never get appreciated monetarily appropriately. 99Designs is NOT the place to go if you want to support designers appropriately.

As you weigh the pros and cons of getting a logo done cheap and quick versus something you can be proud of for years to come, the team at Marketing Maven are always available for a free consultation.
