A post to maybe relieve a little frustration but also to collate some good resources.
I'm working with a startup who are looking for:
- Logo design
- Help with setting up their e-commerce store (Bigcommerce)
The typical avenues so far of:
Have both turned out to be quite hit or miss from my own experiences and what is seen as "brand design" or "logo design" appears to just be an exercise in who can use a logo generator or canva the best to spam listings until the customer succumbs into just picking whatever looks OK rather than something they actually like.
So a little call for help! Where do you usually go to for your own businesses and projects?
A design agency may break budgets at this stage but I can also appreciate the difference between doing something right and not.
