My friend needs a professional logo for his business but there are so many websites - I don't know where to start. Some are probably good and some are probably horrible. Can some experts in graphic design tell me some good websites to find people that can create a very professional logo for his business?
The top of his budget is around $200 to $300. This is for a digital copy logo that he will use on his website as well as other things like a sign for his business, etc.
Maybe a better way of asking this would be, "How do I find a professional designer when there are literally thousands of websites out there stating they are the best ones to choose when, more than likely not, that is not the case?"
Also, I totally realize that it's probably an insult to many by saying "I need a professional logo for $300 maximum" but that's the top of his budget, nothing I can do about that. He has already gotten the loan for the logo, so I'm trying to help him out as this would be overwhelming for him and he would probably end up regretting picking whomever he picked to design it for him. He could get lucky but it's more than likely that he wouldn't.
