List: Logo resources

Find designer

If a designer from the region or through your own network is not an option for the design of the logo, there is still the possibility of using so-called remote services. Here is a list of the most relevant platforms.

  • 99designs: These platforms offer two options. On the one hand, designers can be commissioned directly in the classic way. Alternatively, it is also possible to offer prize money and start a competition among several designers. The designer with the chosen logo wins and receives the prize money. In return, the client receives the rights to use the logo. www.99designs.de
  • DesignCrowd: The same principle as 99designers is also offered by the DesignCrowd platform www.designcrowd.de
  • Fiverr: On Fiverr, logo designs can be commissioned directly. Many orders start at just $5. Here, too, a reputable provider can design a good logo if requirements and design criteria are clearly defined beforehand. However, it rarely stays at $5 if you need several correction phases or file formats. www.fiverr.com
  • Dribbble: Particularly good designers are represented with their portfolio at Dribbble. Here you can contact the designers quickly and easily.
