Places you've used to design your company logo

Hello Elphas! My co-founder and I struggling with our current logo. We are looking to get a new one. What places have you used or are there any Elphas you recommend?? I'm looking into a 99 Designs contest but I'm open to suggestions. Thanks in advance!

Canva is really good if you want to do it yourself.

As a designer, I urge you to pay a designer a fair wage for their expertise and NOT use 99 Designs. I am sure there may be some freelancers here who could offer their services, or you can reach out to designers via AIGA, or Dribbble.

Thanks so much!! Glad you brought this to my attention. How I missed this before I have no idea. I am on the hunt for a freelance designer now approaching it as a long-term relationship!

Hello - I want to second what emilye said. I know it's tempting to make something 'on the cheap' but I promise you, the results will be better if you work directly with a designer or small agency. You will wind up with a brand toolkit (a much more robust solution than just a logo) and the entire package will be more effective, more emotionally relevant, more targeted, and ultimately serve you better for years to come. The process will be fun & collaborative and you'll have something you're truly proud of. I'm sure there are designers on this platform (including me, hence the passion about this!:) if you're looking to stay "close to home" - whatever you decide, best of luck and glad you asked the question!

Kelly - I copied and pasted your message to my co-founder because your advice was so valuable. I didn't think about how getting the branding work piecemeal could hurt us. Thanks again!!
