Today provides so many blogging opps. We have mardis gras, a festival inspired by religious obligations but devoted to consumption and public nudity. We also celebrate International Women's Day, something I favor. Of course, it's only two days until World Kidney Day (do you have your shopping done?).
So I will use today's post to tell you about a great new web site I found last night.
Fiverr is the place for people to share things they are willing to do for $5. In my case, I needed some graphic design. Artsy sorts of things dominate the site in my brief experience; want an anime avatar? For a mere $5, you, too, can resemble Speed Racer.
I joined up and searched "logos." Most of the artists had samples on their profiles. I picked Nikisha1333 whose samples looked great, and who would provide 6 different takes on your project, providing files in jpg, psd, and AI vector format. After ponying up my fiver (the site takes Paypal and major credit cards), I provided some background about what I wanted, and Nikisha1333 promised my files within 3 days.
They were ready this morning! All look professional and capture the feeling I wanted. One really jumps at me, but I plan to mull them over for a few days.
All that work so fast for $5? Even if I had not liked it, I just would have gone back to fiverr and had another artist take a try.
This is for a new project that will launch in the next 4 to 6 weeks (don't worry, WhizBANG! readers will hear all about it). But in the meantime I just had to tell everyone about fivver.
