Another source for design work
In past posts I mentioned I had hired a design agency to create logos for a couple of subscription-based websites my company is going to be launching as well as logos and semi-custom templates for a couple of new blogs. Going to a design firm is one way to get this work done. Another is to 'crowdsource' it. Crowdspring is a site that lets you do just that: you post a request for a project, and a dollar amount you'll be willing to pay for a winning design, and designers from all over compete to produce a winning idea for you. According to the site, the average request generates 80 entries. I haven't used Crowdspring before, but it might be worth considering. Definitely an interesting idea.
