Please help me. I keep having bad experiences. I don’t know if it’s because I’m a bad buyer or I just keep dealing with bad sellers. Here are three of my most recent experiences.
I recently hired someone to design a logo. They had 20 reviews and a 4.8 rating. The artwork they had for their gigs was amazing. The artwork shown on their reviews were just as colorful and creative. When delivery time came they presented me with a one color logo using generic font. They then proceeded to send me several logos that contained the same exact font and color scheme as other logos presented in their gig. After making them aware their gig says they create unique images and dont recycle fonts of graphics they agree to cancel the gig. They then delete the gig and repost it without the logos that contain the same font they tried to present to me.
Earlier today I hired someone for graphic design(53 reviews, 4.7 rating, and a claim of 4yrs experience). I created a 4"x5" template file with an 1/8" black border. The gig was to replace the black border in the template with this steel and rivet pattern. On the left is their work. On the right is the pattern they were supposed to use.
As I was writing this post I think to my self “I’m so tired of hiring people based off their wonderful gig pictures only to receive work that is below my own skill level.” So I decide to involve my friend and her opinion on a past gig I hired someone for. I show her a gig that followed the same story, awesome graphic on the gig itself but the delivery looked nothing like their gig. I say “Does this look like one of the characters from any of the anime you watch?” She immediately says “Thats Kung-Fu Panda.” Right there it hits me. That’s why the delivery provided looks nothing like the artwork on their gig because all the characters on their gig were drawn by the artists at dreamworks studios.
So help me out here. I’m tired of wasting my time and energy on Fiverr only to repeatedly have such poor results . Am I just ranting about nothing? Or does it sound like I’m mentioning legitimate or well known problems on Fiverr? Am I doing something wrong? Any opinions or criticisms would be greatly appreciated.
