As I’ve mentioned in a previous post we’ve ordered the logo for this blog through Fiver(or a referral link, thanks). Now, the opportunity has popped up to try the service again. This time, I was working with a local blacksmith, creating a website for him. The website is genku.me (it might not be up yet, depending if I’m finished with it at the time of your reading). I needed a logo to represent it. After looking through Fiverr I found Jesterr, who offered vintage logo designs. It seemed to suite my cause pretty well, so I ended up contacting him with the following instructions(text unedited):

Hello, we’re working on a website representing a local blacksmith. Working mostly on metal, some woodwork as well.

The name for the business is GenKu.

We’d like the logo in style of your barberpreneurs, just with a hammer instead of the scissors and the man being less hipster and more rustic blacksmith.

The logo should say GenKu, as well as include a Handmade subtitle.

The colors do not have to be the same as the ones you use in your logo here(maybe orange and black? with some red? We’re open to your interpretation there):

Thank you, and if you have any questions let me know!

I did choose the cheaper option, of 15$(the usual Fiverr fee of 1$ still applies on top of this). Jesterr delivered rather quickly, he responded in 14 hours with the first revision. Here’s what it looked like:

Jesterr asked if I had any comments. I had the option to ask for a revision, but that was not needed since I was quite happy with what Jesterr delivered.

To be fair, I’m quite surprised how well Fiverr works for cheap logos. I’m amazed at how cheap you can get a decent logo made. Would definitely recommend Fiver(or a referral link) for anyone looking for a cheap logo!
