It’s hard enough to find a quality graphics designer these days. Then the situation may even get worse, when you pay upfront and keep getting landing pages or graphic designs that just look like crap! A new site has just recently went live, called LogoMyWay. Instead of having to choose and work with one designer, you submit a project description, then get examples and designs from all participants. You set a specific price for the job you are looking to have complete, then award to prize money to the designer that did the best job.
Who is Using LogoMyWay?
Though the site is fairly new, over 50 new designers are signing up daily. A couple companies currently looking for designs on LogoMyWay are EbaumNation and Jim Kukral’s Scratchback. The EbaumNation contest has drawn a decent amount of attention, and already has over 200 graphics submitted to choose from. You can see a view of their current contest submissions below.
How does LogoMyWay Work?
The process behind using LogoMyWay is quite simple. If you are looking to have any type of design created, you simply signup and are walked through a process which will setup your account and details on your new logo project. You will also choose a price that you will be paying for your image. The minimum amount is $200.00 to start a contest, and 10% of that are fees collected by LogoMyWay. Once completed, your contest will now go live and is open to all graphic designers to submit their work. As the contest creator, you can provide feedback, approve, rank and deny any entries posted to your contest. All payments to contest winners are handled through LogoMyWay.
LogoMyWay vs 99Designs?
If you’ve been in the graphics design area at all, you may have come across 99Designs, which is one of the largest marketplaces out there for graphic design and runs the same contest/submission process as LogoMyWay. One of the big differences between the two, is that LogoMyWay has a guaranteed winner for every contest posted, at 99Designs, the contest poster can walk away without rewarding a winner. 99Designs has been around longer and may have a larger variety of users and postings, but LogoMyWay is also adding over 50 new designers daily and currently have over 1,000 on their site. It will be interesting to compare the two in a years time and see how they compare.
