There are many online logo designers in our country. WizanZaini started his first online logo design business in 1999. Here are few tips how to find and choosing your logo designer in Malaysia particularly.
Keep an eye out for certain things when choosing a logo designer:
Experience and proven success
Do they have a proven track record? How experienced are they?
Do they have positive testimonials from previous clients? Ensure you check the validity of testimonials. A quick email to the company should suffice.
Their design process
Do they follow a logo design process?
Awards won and published work
Have they won any awards for their work? Is their work published in any books or magazines? How recognized are they in the industry?
Strength of portfolio
How strong is their portfolio? Have they got 100+ mediocre logo designs or 10 to 30 excellent ones? What is the ratio of real to fake logo designs?
How long would they take to complete your logo? A typical logo design process takes 4 to 15 days, but many can go for months on end. Think of how long your logo design will be used for: would you want it to be designed (much less researched) in less than 24 hours?
The cost of the service usually reflects what you will receive. In most cases, you get what you pay for… but price is not the only indication.
Are they affiliated with any design associations or publications? This is a good indication of how dedicated they are to their craft, though it is not essential.
Professionalism and communication
How do they present themselves? Do they respond to your emails quickly? How do they communicate? Do they work with a contract (to protect both them and you)?
How many questions does the designer ask about your business? Questions should revolve around your company’s history, target market, goals, etc.
