I've engaged 99Designs to help me get develop a logo for my new website.

Overall it has been a great experience and its amazing how poor my Photoshop skills are when compared to these guys.

All the contributors have done an awesome job! However, Its time to pick the one winner!

Please help me by taking the time to do the poll! Thanks

I'd say that I like the third one the best, I like how it would give you a logo and a word mark. The one you ended up picking is another one that I like as well. I'm not sure how those contests work, but make sure you get the raw file from the designer, if you just get rasterized images you'll be screwed when it comes to resizing/making changes. Hopefully they weren't made with Photoshop, Illustrator is a lot better for making vector graphics. It's probably a combination of the two programs.

As a side note I know that tons of designers despise 99designs since it really devalues their work. It says that you received 365 logo concepts for $299, that's less than a dollar a logo ^^ I'm indifferent to the whole idea, you get lots of work for cheap, but you give up getting to communicate and direct the design process of the client. As well as their is incentive for designers to crank out massive amounts of work without much thought so you most likely aren't getting their best work.

I strongly agree with what PurdueBoy has stated. Having direct contact to a graphic designer is crucial and the reason why in most cases individuals hire a single artists with whom they discuss how the required graphical content will look and in what formats it will be needed before the actual design process. After buying a logotype concept from 99designs you cant really make any adjustments to the concept as you do not have direct contact to the artist behind the work. Logotypes require a lot of readjustments before they are finalized and then at the final phase the logotype must be then provided in all the required formats. Communication is an important aspect when doing business with a graphic designer.
