Crowdsourced creative work. Need a logo, stationery or advertising designed inexpensively? We recommend crowdSPRING www.crowdspring.com – a community of graphic artists from all over the world who will submit designs for your project for one flat fee (starting at $200). They average 110 entries per project and even offer an unconditional money back guarantee if you don’t like any results enough to select one. We used them for OUR logo design and had a great experience.
