What do we think of Fiverr?

    I don't think its good for the design industry. It allows "designers" to do quick work at a cheap price for the client. My opinion is that I don't think the work is done to a high standard (from personal experience) and it can also have an impact on our business itself. If we quote £80 for a logo, a client may just think "oh well I can just get it done for £5 on this site", resulting in us losing business for a project we would complete to a high standard.

      This is a concern I have, it doesn't necessarily devalue or trade (in terms of employment) but I do worry about the influence it can have on SMBs, start ups etc., they may start expecting these low prices.

        Also, that would (is?) be aligned with the LEAN mentality as well, faster, cheaper, fail, iterate etc..

        But I strongly believe that this will saturate by itself in the near future, where that kind of work will be done by AI (in seconds you receive an equivalent of the work you can get on fiver).
