One of the keys to standing out as a musician is a slick, memorable logo.
Want to know another secret?
If you’re spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on a logo- you’re doing it wrong. Go to Fiverr.com and choose between thousands of designers who will craft you something amazing for as little as $5. You’ll find someone amazing in seconds- as all the top-rated designers appear on the front page. Tell them to craft you something minimalistic, that will look good on screens of all sizes- and isn’t cluttered with lots of tiny details.
Most of the time, you’ll get something back in 24 hours that genuinely blows your mind (especially given that it cost you next to nothing). As an American reading this- you’re probably thinking, “okay, what’s the catch?” “The national minimum wage is $7.25. Why would any self-respecting American put in hours of work for a measly $5?”
Spoiler alert: they’re not Americans!
Fiverr designers come from all over the globe- many from under developed countries with a very low cost of living. Take Sri Lanka for example. Their national minimum wage (per DAY, not per hour) is 400 rupees. Sounds like a lot huh? 400 rupees equals roughly 6 dollars.
So yeah, a Sri Lanka Fiverr designer that does two logos a day almost doubles his normal daily wage. (and that’s with just 3 to 4 hours of work!) Pretty sweet deal for them, and for you.
Logo design, and graphic design in general is one of the parts of your business you should always outsource to foreign workers.
After all, there’s nothing stopping them becoming just as good as their American counter parts. In contrast, if you try to outsource writing to a foreign country- you’ll get a steaming pile of shit. And that’s because it’s really freaking hard to master a language that you don’t speak natively.
So yeah, if you’re looking for someone to ghost write your bars (weird, but alright) don’t go to Pakistan or India just because it’s cheap. So there you have it. “I can’t afford it” is no longer a valid excuse for why you don’t have a bomb ass logo.
Now go over to Fiverr.com and get one.
