You either love it or you don’t
This week, I started a test to see if bidding sites are worth it, at least for the beginning online freelancer. I set out not to judge (the bidders, clients and the site) but I simply can’t help but be bothered by some of my observations, which I will detail in another post. But here’s one…
Some bidders are not individuals, but groups of designers who call themselves a design agency. They bid for logo design in the range of $40-$50. I can understand low prices when you’re just starting out, you’re still building your portfolio after all. But when, after 1500 projects and the bids remain in the same price range, it’s a strong indication that you view logo design nothing but a commodity.
Where’s the joy and the passion in that?
