Finding Freelance Logo Designers on Google? Surprisingly Difficult!


Finding freelance logo designers on Google

Freelance Logo Designers

Just a wee snippet of a post, but when I read this recent client enquiry for a logo design the matter-of-fact way in which it was worded just made me pause.

On my Logo Design Brief and Logo Design Enquiries form, I have a box where the client can indicate where they might have found me/come across me, and more often than not it is usually some kind of Google search, no big surprise really. But this particular one just hit me with the phrasing, “It is actually surprisingly difficult to find a professional designer outside the “big” sites of 99designs, Crowdspring, etc.”

Again, I don’t think that’s actually a big surprise to any of us freelance logo designers, but to just read it like this from a client really highlighted how these ‘big’ sites are sucking the lively hood of far more talented, and worthy designers, not to mention leading clients on a probably route to unprofessional and sub-standard work etc.

Just to note: Back in the day, I was once a newbie freelance logo designer on sites like 99Designs and Crowdspring, trying to forge a name and portfolio for myself. With this hindsight and experience, I feel quite comfortable telling it how it is.

It’s still a shame, but a reality we have to deal with, or fade into obscurity.

These crowdsources websites are going to continue devaluing various disciplines of the graphic design industry, and we as freelance logo designers, who rely on our on logo design portfolio, self marketing and advertising, social media, and Google rankings etc, must continue to plod on unabated.
