I think 60-80% of the “logo designers” on Fiverr – perhaps even higher than that – have no what a true logo really is. I have a degree in design – I’ve had training and experience creating logos. Unfortunately, a lot of what I’ve seen here on Fiverr are images created by people that clearly DON’T have any design training. These guys use images stolen from the internet (or from other designers), or “pretty pictures” that I wouldn’t even use to represent a homeless man.
Now, don’t get me wrong, there are some fantastic skilled logo designers here on Fiverr – I admire their work, but they, sadly, aren’t the majority. In a world where anyone can claim to be anything (and most people just nod their heads and agree, for fear of hurting people’s feelings), you really have to be mindful to ignor these fakers. They are everywhere… like rats in a sewer.
And the ironic thing is, if people just stopped pretending, and offered work that they ACTUALLY have skills in, they would be a lot more successful. But people don’t hold others to account as much anymore, and it’s just easier to lie and cheat for a living.
