I'm not saying all the designers on Fiverr use templates or rip off other work, but from judging from the findings in the article it's almost as if the 'designers' on Fiverr buy a logo template for $1-2, change it slightly and resell for $5 - then extras.
Maybe do a couple of these an hour, then I guess that's how they're making the money.
Funny (or maybe not?) to see the mentality difference between HN and DN: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8152631
Well, the iconic Nike Swoosh logo wasn't either that expensive to create.
The context in which the logo is made was completely different.
Lol, that made my day.
A summary + follow-up to my previous article, The $5 Logo.
Judging from both articles, the takeaway seems to be that for $5 you can get a fairly average logo, that in no way illustrates a brand's meaning, and shows potential customers that a business is most likely a garage-operated weekend hobby. That's also assuming the logo isn't a blatant ripoff of original work as well haha.
So I think the real takeaway here is that if these ultra-cheap services were really that good, why isn't Fiverr taking advantage of them?
