new first gig, and I was looking for someone to do a specific logo id like. I did a request, got some offers, honed it down by looking at their profiles and who would have the capability to do the work. back and forth, giving links to examples and making a video explaining and giving detailed instructions but after 4 tries, it just wasnt even partly close to what I would like.
got a refund. started searching again. sent messages of what I was looking to potential sellers. got replies back. some said yes, some no. decided on one. payed the $50 gave him pictures, detailed instructions and a video as well to give him the right direction. got the logo. not good. not even close with the style. I added another $10 as I wanted something different with the female hand which can be seen in the video. so payed $80 (extra fees)till now. gave more detailed instruction to give him proper direction for style.
2nd time around , received. very similar to 1st. see the video here and you can see the 2 jobs he delivered to me. 1st is top 2nd is under. I asked for a specific color and gave the number through the color picker from photoshop. he did it black. it was supposed to be turquoise. I asked for a flat rin not rounded thin ring. I asked for a closed hand on the left female hand. so not good. not the style I was looking for
made a video to try and explain
with all this, I payed may 25. I got 2 revisions and waiting for the 3rd and hopefully final.
he disappeared with no reply or update on the job and I explained to him over and over, take extra time if you need, the least you should do is tell the buyer you are working on it so he feels reassured it will be delivered. he said he had technical problems. thats fine. I didnt rush him. take 3 days for a revision but stay in contact with your buyers always. I sent him the video, links to the images explained in the note as well and no acknowledgment. a simple “got it, ill get back to you” would suffice.
0 for 2 and NOT HAPPY. this is not good for fiverr. im patient but this is getting too much.
why is it hard for the designers to follow direction on what one would like? reminds me of hair stylists where the women go in for a 1/2 trim and they always butcher and dont listen to directions.
