The Podcasting TpT Logo

A month ago, I told you about a service called Fiverr that provides services for $5 each. Through this outsourcing site, I purchased the logo for my podcast that you see on the left. Soon, I hope to place it in my header and later I'll use it for my iTunes image. Even though the artist did not create exactly what I asked, I was pleased with the outcome. After receiving the finished product, I wrote this review: "My logo turned out great, and I'm interested in buying a new gig for the source file. Thanks, simone_1982. There were a couple of requests that were not addressed in the logo, but the work was done well in a short amount of time. I'm satisfied with the result."

After having gone through this process, I do recommend Fiverr, and the seller simone_1982. If you visit her store page, you will see a lot of samples of her creative work. I'm impressed with her creativity, especially for the price. However, there are a couple of things you should be aware of if you're interested in using her services.

  1. She is not a communicator. Some of my requests were ignored with no explanation. Also, now that I've purchased the logo, I'm trying to buy the original .psd source file. Though I continue to send her messages, she doesn't respond. (This could be because she is from Vietnam.) 
  2. Also, when you purchase a "gig," you have an option to purchase what Fiverr calls "Gig Extras." These are upgrades that cost extra, and you may or may not be better off selecting them for your initial purchase. For example, I'm trying to purchase the source file for my logo for $10, but it looks like I might have to pay $15 since I didn't select this option when I made my original purchase.
I'll let you know how the rest of the process goes. In the meantime, I'd love to know what you think of the logo. Please leave your comments below.
