Here is a great article about logo design & freelancing from a designers perspective.
The same information applies to photography, video, etc. This is a good read if you are a freelancer or if you are someone who hires freelance artists.
It’s called “Why professional logo design does not cost $5″ written by Jacob Cass. Check it out!
I agree with what Jacob is saying and this is why I do not put out generic price lists for my services or have enormous wedding photo packages, etc. Every event is very different and therefore should not be charged the same. I give personalized & guaranteed quotes to every client!
Also, this is a logo I just designed for Prime Athlete! Not stock. Not too busy. Not too plain. Eye catching. That’s what it’s all about people! :)
