Help for my import export company logo!

Well, it’s Sunday - and I’m gonna be watching football all day (soccer for the people in the US).

I can help you with your logo - but there will be a fee.

Get in touch and tell me your budget and see if we can work something out.

Yeh not really good to ask a bunch of strangers who do this for a living to work for free.
You came here because you don’t have a skill that we do. So with all due respect, asking for free work is an insult.

We all do this for a living. We don’t work for free. In addition, you’re breaking the forum rules by even asking for free work. Beyond that, as Smurf2 mentioned, it’s a bit insulting to think that you’d even ask.

Normally, as a moderator here, I’d just delete both your account and your posts. Since so many others have responded, I’ll leave it. Besides, it makes a good chance to provide some honest feedback without worrying about offending an actual paying client.

That being the case, your logo of a moose running around on a globe is terrible. Not only is it terrible, it’s just sort of a dopey idea. There’s really nothing salvageable here, even if you were paying for it. It looks like a clip art globe, a clip art arrow and a clip art moose silhouette that you just sort of stacked on top of each other. To put it bluntly, you’re asking for someone to take your pile of poop of an idea and use some sort of non-existent designer magic to turn it into something that looks and smells delicious.

Even if you were offering to pay, this is the kind of job I’d typically turn down — for all the reasons @Sprout mentioned. As professional designers, we don’t take other people’s terrible ideas and make futile attempts at fixing them. There’s an old expression about trying to turn a sow’s ear into a silk purse, and that’s largely what you’re requesting.

If you want to do this right, don’t come up with your own bad ideas and expect a designer to help you fix them — especially for free. Instead, find a good designer then, with a suitable budget (several days worth of wages), discuss your situation with the designer — for example, you’re an export company trying to expand into a specific market but lacking the right visual branding that you think might resonate with that market’s target audience. At that point, turn it over to the designer to come up something best suited to solve your specific problem. Don’t try to solve the design problem yourself then expect a designer to take your less-than-good idea and turn it into something it isn’t. Good design doesn’t come about that way.

I aim a little lower – liquor stores.

Why do people need to rob banks? All they need is ask.

well …about the poeple who s looking for money and they didnt wants to do anything for free …i can talk to you also with the same logic why you all here and why you didnt make your logo business website and sell your logo there ??? as i know this forum not for a business and it s free and for education …but if you looking for money go make your business web and sell your logos as you can …easy and simple !

As already mentioned, most everyone who answered you is a professional designer or a design student. We earn our living from graphic design, and most of us do have our own professional business websites or are working for companies as designers and art directors.

You’ve asked us to make you a new logo for free — something that might take several days and that we might otherwise charge hundreds or thousands or dollars to do.

Would you go to a restaurant and ask for free food? Would you ask a taxi driver to give you a free ride? Would ask a dentist to fix your teeth at no charge? Yet you come here and ask us to build your logo for free?

I’m sorry that you misunderstood the purpose of this forum. It’s a professional forum for designers to talk about the business of design. If you had read the forum rules, you would also have found out that you’re not allowed to ask for free work.

Aren’t you being schooled here? :wink:

Is having a nice logo, that clearly represents what it is you do and connects with your customers important to you?

This actually works on two levels.

Wow. You come here with a – let’s be charitable and call it mistaken, rather than greedy – expectation that, the otherwise busy professionals who frequent this place, for reasons of ‘putting back’ and helping the next generation of designers, would work for your profit-making (I assume) company for free. Even if we gloss over that fact, you then respond with an offensive level of arrogance and entitlement and no hint of contrition once you have been made aware of your error. You asked why no one responded. It seems my instincts were entirely ‘on the money’ in the first place.

Futhermore, for someone who runs, what I choose to assume is, a serious business, you seem to have absolutely no understanding of what your brand is all about and how it should sit within a marketing and communication strategy. That you ask for a ‘logo’ and talk of us making websites to ‘sell … logos’, completely exposes your ignorance. I, for one, shall not be giving you free information about what you should be asking for, given your rude and abrasive response.

Here’s hoping you get the work you deserve for your budget and good luck sailing with the big boys out on the open seas.

I 100% do not come to the forum to do business. I come here for chats and to chill out with like minded people who work in the industry - it’s a great relaxation to talk shop, or talk crap and have a laugh.

I repeat, I don’t come to the forum for business - every now and then someone asks for something and I try to help - but usually once a fee is mentioned you don’t hear from them again. Which is fine by me.

I have actual work to do that does pay, and pays very well. So excuse me if I don’t drop everything I am doing for actual money, to help you design your logo for your business (where you make money) and I do all that for FREE?

You must be out of your mind?

Do you ask your truck drivers to drive for free? Maybe they can setup a truck driving website so they can sell their truck driving skills so that they can actually get paid for the work they do - rather than work for you for free!

Would you?
