Great website for affordable, professional logos

What do you like best?

What I love about 99Designs is how simple and efficient is to run a logo design contest to get the exact logo you are looking for. The interface is extremely easy to use and allows you to comment on various parts of a design to give good feedback to designers. I've also found that their community of designers is very large and diverse which gives you a wide selection of options for your logo contest. I also really like that there is a money back guarantee which means you will always get a logo you're happy with.

What do you dislike?

The one thing I don't like, is that when you archive designs in a contest, how there is an Archive wordmark placed over the designs. Sometimes I want to look back at designs that I have archived to make sure I didn't accidentally archive a design that I want.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would say the one thing that were hesitant about was the cost, but after a couple of contests, I would say that this is non-issue. The cost is definitely worth it, and you'll be glad you went with 99Designs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have used 99Designs for two different logos. One logo is for our company and the other is for one of our products. Both times we received a logo that we were very happy with and not something we could have done ourselves. We have felt like the cost was more than worth it for the end product.

Delivers results but doesn't impress.

What do you like best?

The friendly usability of the platform is the upside of the product. It's extremely straight forward, you can edit your brief details at anytime, and message the entire list of designers working on your contest at once, as well as individually.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the fact that the more feedback you provide, the less variety you get in the design options. The designers start copying the designs that you say you like and all designs start looking much like each other because they ultimately want to win the contest so they get paid. This removes the surprise element and I personally think that it defeats the purpose of having multiple designers working on your project.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for an outstanding logo for you brand that will add value and you will be truly happy with, don't choose the lowest level package. I can't confirm that the more expensive options will deliver a much better result but from my personal experience, the lowest level package will deliver a professional looking logo but yet not impressive.

High quality designs for your website or logo

What do you like best?

I love the variety and options that the numerous designers offer on 99designs. I am a big fan of simply telling them about your brand and designers creating logos based on your guidelines!

What do you dislike?

I dislike the deadlines that 99designs sets. I would like more time to choose a design or collect additional designs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They offer guarantees of work so your downside is minimal.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We started a new company and used 99designs for the logo and the website. Both have turned out exactly as we wanted.
