I read @sprout reply and it’s a very good, honest critique.
I say this with great gusto - don’t use crowdsourcing sites. They are a curse and an abomination. You won’t learn anything, it’s not the experience you should have in dealing with clients.
$50 for a logo? Yeh sure, that’s possible if I just type out a word in a nice font and they like it.
I once designed a logo for a banking corporation. I went to to the meeting - I sat with the Board members, I listened to them describe their Bank, what they do and what level of trust they wanted with the logo and how important it was to have that logo right and incorporate all their values.
In the a lightbulb moment, I sketched out the logo on my notepad - held it up and said - ‘something like this’ - and they said ‘THAT’s IT!’
I went back - spent 2 weeks polishing the design - setting up it’s guidelines and going back and forth.
My bill at the end was $5000. They were flabbergasted and said “but you came up with the logo during the meeting, surely it’s cheaper than that”.
Yes, I came up with the logo in seconds, but I spent 25 years perfecting thoughts on design. Yes, it took seconds. But I spent 80 hours on perfecting the logo, and coming up with usage and guidelines around it so the logo is maintained and the brand is protected and shown correctly in all usage.
Dump crowdsourcing sites. Useless garbage way to try to get work. Trying to WIN a contest to get a measly few quid. What a waste of time.

Keep going - you can do it - but don’t go to crowdsourcing sites.
