If you were looking for affordable logo design in 2007, you may have come across a Google Ad suggesting "Designers Have Gone Crazy - Logos for $10!". The corresponding website, TenDollarLogo.com, offered one original logo, without revision, and a money-back guarantee. Luckily, I was one of the customers that responded to their sales pitch. For a little over 3 months, this short-lived Brazilian Logo Design company provided me with high-quality logos for all of my web design projects before padding their pockets with ten dollar bills and closing shop. Fast forward eight years and I was able to purchase the tendollarlogo.com domain name for my own project.
So, who am I and what do I do? Well, I am a former web and graphic design student with a handful of websites and domain names. I attended the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary as a part-time student for several years earning a Certificate in Web and Print Design and almost completing another in Digital Marketing. Unfortunately, I was never the most talented graphic designer and I still outsource most of my graphics to other design companies. I've spent countless hours searching 'Affordable Logo Designers' on Google hoping to find affordable logo designers that could reliably produce creative and original work for both my projects and those of my clients. I've also spent a considerable amount of time reading reviews and manuals on services and software; trying to find the best tools for my projects. (Many of which I would never use in the end.) In my experience, it has been difficult to find honest and affordable web and graphic design companies. There are so many that misrepresent themselves and their abilities. Time and money are almost always wasted in the process. Through the course of developing my projects, I have had the pleasure of dealing with some very talented designers and developers, but have also regretting availing myself of many other offers.
With tendollarlogo.com I plan on sharing my design, development and outsourcing experiences. In short, my hope for this website is to direct you to the best affordable logo design services and most appropriate software for your skills, budget and project specifications... and steer you away from the wrong ones. I am also in the process of creating some tutorials for a handful of lesser-known Content Management Systems, graphic design tools, and social media platforms. If you are looking to broaden your options, want to find software that is maybe a little more user-friendly or tailored more towards your project specifications, you may want to check out our tutorials page.
Some of the links here on this website are affiliate links. This means I make a commission when you buy something from the corresponding website after being directed there from mine. Many of them aren't. I will share the best and worst experiences I have had regardless of the monetary benefit. If you do find my information useful though, I hope you might make a purchase through one of these links or share them with friends.
