Outsourcing your Graphic Design

Let face it we all have our strengths and weaknesses.  Why I can put to together some simple lame graphics so things are just better left to a Pro or Guru.  Graphic design might be one of the 1st things you can outsource or out task to help is give your business the right look and feel.  The process is pretty simple you figure out what size graphic’s you need a lot of places will do bundles.  Then you put together your idea’s and requirements and send to to a designer.

Who to use.

A couple companies that are know for this are 99 designs.  With 99 designs you submit your project and then people from around the globe can compete for about a week.  You then can pick the winner.  I never used this site but have heard of many that like the way it works.  Your not stuck with one design.  You get to pick which one you like.  Project cost range from from $100 to $600.

If you looking for quick turnaround and awesome work you should check out 20DollarBanners. 

Low rates and quick turn around, lots of experience 50,000 plus some designs over the years.  You also get up to 5 revisions.

You can learn more about the designer in this Tuan Nguyen Interview

Also my buddy Doug Dillard over at makingmoneyonline.com is running another contest and this time you can win a $109 custom banner package from here. You can learn more about the details by clicking the link.

I hope I win but if not I pretty sure I going to be sending Tuan some business as it is time for this site to get some professional graphics.

I started thinking about what I am looking for and here is a sketch let me know what you think.  As you can see graphic’s are not my think so I busted out the kids crayons.  Now there is a easy way to make some graphic’s crayons and a scanner.

I want something like this I am open to colors but my oldest daughter said green for money and I think that is a good call Smile 

The Cult is sitting on a bridge, my site is to be a bridge between newbie and guru’s.  I want the bridge to have Dollars signs as the supports.  I want would love to see some social media icons sitting on the bridge and peeping out over the letters.  Throw my picture in there somewhere.  Maybe I could be on a boat under the bridge but this is about the extent of my graphic abilities. 

Please let me know and if anyone wants to do take a stab at free graphic’s for this site.  Send them over.  If I like them and use them I will do a post about you.

    Over the past few years I have had anywhere from 1 to 20 different designers on staff, I use to constantly mix that between outsourced and US based web and graphic designers.

    As much as the language barrier can be a challenge when it comes to outsourcing, the results are usually very very good.

    In fact, I tried to design a banner for myself, but it doesn’t look professional as I’m poor in graphic design. Anyway, Doug has a great contest over there, and I’m going to participate and win the banner package prize! 😀

    I’ve had experiences with both domestic and out sourcing. Like John the one issues we have is the communication barrier which is sometimes extremely frustrating but non the less it’s cheaper and the quality is usually the same if not better.

    Yes, can’t bet the price. Communication is a challege just make sure you give good requirements. Really that is the key I been working with outshore teams for many years. Even spent a month in India. What a interesting and booming place.

    This is simply good stuff. If some one can outsource their work just with help of a blog. But is it safe???

  22. Jared says:

    Robin, outsourcing is safe you just need to know who you are dealing with. If you look at Tuan Nguyen and his story and the amount of work he has done you really have nothing to be scared of. Most of the other e-lance or rent a coder also have rating or scores so stick with people that have expirecne or good reviews. Kinda like e-bay don’t buy from people with negitive feedback.

    If your looking to outsource graphic’s then Tuan is your man. Prices are low, turn around is fast and you get up to 5 re-visions seems like a no brainer and have you looked at how good his work is. If I don’t win Dougs contest I am putting in an order this week.

    Why would people not just learn the graphic design skill their self? Isn’t that way it will be more efficient?\

    Thanks and sorry for my foolish questions.

  26. Amazing tips. Not everyone can design their own logo or a project so it’s great to have sites that you can dish out your ideas and how it must be done. What’s cool about it is that you don’t only get to choose over one design but lots of it. Having your logo design ain’t that complicated anymore.

  27. Jared says:

    Lisa it not that people will not learn, it a time thing also. I can do graphics but they take me 2-4 times as long and look 1/2 as good. In a pinch I will do it but for the price if you have 20-50 dollars all you have to do it pay for it and in a day you can have something that looks good and your done.

    Everytime I try to do graphic’s I spin my wheels for a couple hours. I should take the time to learn but right now I am learning other things. Maybe it if took the time to learn it would be quicker at it but still think I don’t do enough of it or will do enough of it to every be quick at it.

    I am comfortable adapting a theme for my use with some basic html skills, but when it comes to graphic design forget it. As much as I would love to do it myself, I do not have the skills for it.

    When I had my accounting firm I worked with an online logo design firm that designed my logos, business cards, and stationary. The end result was very good, but there was little communication.

    I sent them detailed requirements, and they sent me three rounds of proofs. I was pretty worried after the first round, but then the second round changes were amazing. I only needed some color changes in the third round.

    Great post!

  31. What an awesome blog! Could you possibly tell me what theme you are useing? That is if you dont mind of course?

  32. I really don’t know what to tell you, maybe get a job at a print shop if you want to cut corners. I am in one of the best Canadian privitized arts Universities, NSCAD. It was like jumping through hoops to get in.

  34. Hey, I outsource all of my graphics and find I get results far better than if I work on the myself. I usually do the outsourcing by simply putting an ad on rentacoder.com. Most of the time I now use the same person as I have found someone who is very cheap and very good at what he does.

    Thanks for the info on these design companies. The 20 Dollar Banners one looks good for my needs. I was wondering if you know of anyone who could design Flexsqueeze headers that would still let you overlay the site title as the default ones do. It would be good to be able to customize this theme more than with the standard set. The updated Flexsqueeze is a big improvement and with access to custom headers wold be even better still!

  41. As an example imagine the benefits you will receive by outsourcing your graphic design work to professional companies. For one thing you don''t have to worry and stress yourself on how you are going to get the work done when you yourself are not a graphics designer. This practice also saves you plenty of time, the number one reason is because qualified professionals will be doing your work and they can create five different varieties of a logo for you to choose the one you like. If you tried to this you would spend weeks just educating yourself on how to use the program…

  42. You can also outsource your graphic design in the Philippines. You can have a custom quality designs with just a portion of your dollars.

  43. As a graphics design I am very much proud to read your post that you've share is here about the simple lame graphics so things are just better left to a Pro or Guru. Your 99 graphics design another one knowledgeable lettering for me.
