Hi fiverr sellers
i am graphic designer and from last 3 years i am working on fiverr.
Yesterday fiverr disabled my account.it took me 3 years to build nice 5 star positive reviews profile on fiverr.i done totally 500+ logo orders on fiverr.None of the buyers never rated me even 4.All was 5 stars prositive reviews.Repeated buyers and tipped me over $60+ .i designed my portfolio by my own.
i had some bad experience and few scammers who just wanted money back.
But this situation is totally different.
But Few days ago a guy order $10 gig (my basic gig package).he only provided me few information but it was enough to design logo.his logo name was limelights.his business was about renting lights for events.
few hours of brain stroming what i can do in $10.so i was thinking about his work looking at the logo name two “ll” lights.then idea pop up.Rough ideas.Start checking out with some fonts.
so i designed a logo as two light bulbs check in attached picture
version 3 https://www.dafont.com/belle-allure.font?text=ll
and check picture
two “ll” was pretty much look like a two lights bulbs so i thought let’s just show to him.As a graphic designer i always do my best and show every possible and minimal design to the buyer.If he don’t like just can ask for revisions.But always make first impression.
as you can see above in pictures i designed 3 variations.As he provided in his little information color green.I provided in 3 different green colors.
.i delivered it on time.i delivered these logos and explained to him why i designed this logo concepts and how it’s meaningful for your business.Fully explained.I waited for 3 days. But no response and after 5-6 days he come back and left his reviews.
i started thinking he definitely left 5 stars.because logo was great.so we can not see reviews because we are blind. lol .i left my reviews as 5 star and full 5 star for buyer .and then his reviews pop up 1 star with Claiming that logo was copied from other company called lavalife.
so i quickly searched on web lavalife and it’s a dating app - http://www.lavalife.com/ .
i thought Ohhhhhhhh sometime logo matched.buyer can ask for revision.In $10 honestly who will check all logo databases and how it’s got matched i am surprised.i explained him he can ask for revisions. but he started talking crazy like said to me “i like to see you in jail”.i wanted to refund if possible.But he started talking crazy and i said ok and blocked him.everything was going very smooth i got more orders and 5 star reviews again no problem at.All happy customers.Then fiverr refunded and cancelled his order i open up my mobile fiverr app and unable to sign in.then opened my laptop they said account disabled .even after his 1 star review i requested to customer support and explained everything.this is just happened.i wish if they can think how i designed this logo.before this order i did not know about lavalife is a dating app.i think i have to start dating now and forget about fiverr.
Please, graphic designers , your welcome share your thoughts what to do now.
Is there any way to get my account back?
This is Honest story.
---------------- NEW UPDATE : well guysthanks for your support and understanding and standing with me.But nothing in our hands. i am editing it.because fiverr is not place for me.i started here with a hope.But it’s better for me to move on to another platform.Check when i tried to explained this is what they do.They don’t understand .they are not graphic designers So they have to remove graphic design section in fiverr.
