While doing research on how to get our podcast onto iTunes one of the requirements was podcast artwork 1400×1400. Art and digital photo manipulation are not my strong skills and to be honest I was scratching my head about how to get something created on a super-tight budget. Basically, all my start up money really went into the audio hardware to get the best, most professional sound I could while still not spending a fortune; which I did end up spending more than I had budgeted.
As I did my Google research I knew I needed a professional and couldn’t afford one. I found a few digital photo sites and began learning about digital media rights or the right to use photo’s on your site etc. These were on the affordable end however; I didn’t see anything that really fit what we wanted.
I then found Fiverr® and from there I found srinivaskorai who for $5 United States bucks created our logo from scratch in less than a week! When I made my work request I specified what kind of podcast / website we would have and some of the style we were looking for, however we left the creativity part up to the artist.
The product that was sent to us is what we have been using as our podcast episode art and for $5 bucks, how can you beat that? I will definitely be using Fiverr ® again and srinivaskorai for future art work. For $5 bucks why not try others out too. We may look at experimenting with additional or different logo’s and still need to better brand the web site.
If you are starting a podcast or web project and need affordable services you may want to check out this site. We are happily surprised about what you can get and the speed of delivery for $5 bucks. Amazing.
