So, let’s say you’re starting a new ministry, organization, or need a quick logo or graphical design. Your budget is shot because of overfeeding the high schoolers on the last trip to Six Flags (but it was so worth it) but you’re stuck.
What to do?
It’s fairly straightforward and simple to begin. Take a look at some of the examples and then give it a go if it suits your fancy.
Please know that you “get what you pay for”.
I say this to kindly remind you that you are not guaranteed in any way, shape, or form a “world class” design by a fortune 50 firm. These are independent designers, and you’ll get submissions that pretty much span the talent cloud from very good to the “is this a joke” submission.
I know, I’ve tried.
But the results were satisfying for my budgetary needs.
Side note for those that strongly dislike “spec” design (speculative design).
I know the issues and the arguments. I agree with both worlds. You have to submit, though, that these three can provide valuable resources to startup ministries, organizations, or those who need some quick design on the cheap and who understand that they are “getting what they pay for”.
