Default Graphic art

If this has been posted, sorry :-/..

I've seen some awesome logos on here.. and I want to make my own, but frankly I'm not that talented when it come to graphic art... does anyone here make logos or can anyone point me in the direction to get my logo made?

Check the "Label Display" subforum. Graphic artists have been known to take requests from time to time.

I'm sure I will take a beating from those graphic artists who are here on the forum but check out 99designs.com. You post your project details and an amount of money to hold a contest. The winning designer gets awarded the money.

Some graphic designers have the opinion this is like using a sweatshop in China.

BIG issue I see with that site is the cost... Not many of us can afford to toss $299 away on a logo.

How much does it cost to run a logo design contest?
You set the budget! Pricing starts at $299 and in general, the more money you offer, the more logo designs you will have to choose from.

You can actually get a logo for less, if it's not going to be for an actual business use. I have a friend working on one for me. I just wish he would get his buttocks in gear and get it done.

I used to have time to help out people with quick personal logos/labels. I'm sure somebody will be willing to help you out. There are a lot of talented artists floating around here...

Funny read... But I already have a design.. just don't know how to make it digital instead of paper.. and never said I expected it done for free.. just asked for some input on how to get it done.

If you can scan it in, there are ways of converting it to vector art.
